Happy CosFriday Everybody! You made it! This week’s featured cosplayer always knew you could and is looking forward to meeting you! So say Hi to Melbourne based Cosplayer and self-confessed D&D nut – LunarVex!
What’s your name & how old are you? My name is Tegan, and my cosplay name is LunarVex! I’m a 75 old grandma trapped in a 27-year-old’s body.
How long have you been cosplaying? Started in 2011, so around 8 years now! Have been making my own costumes for about 6.5 years.
What inspired you to start cosplaying? I had a small group of friends back in my country home town who invited me to my first convention in Melbourne, and seeing people dressed up as my fave characters blew my mind. I had no idea people did this for fun, and everyone seemed like they were having heaps of fun.
So I had to give it a go myself. From then, I was hooked and my grandma started giving my sewing lessons so I could make things myself too.
What was your First Cosplay? Kanda from D.Gray Man was my very first, but Tim Drake Robin (DC Comics) was my first self made costume.
What is your most recent cosplay? My most recent finished ones are Tharja from Fire Emblem and Taako from the Adventure Zone
What cosplays are you currently working on? I’m working on a few of my own designs, including a Pokemon gijinka and more Taako, and Vex from Critical Role.
Who are your favourite cosplayers in the community? All my friends within the community? Like every single one of them. To name a few, we have thewitchcosplay, Clamwings, Blackcrane Cosplay, TJ Cosplay, Kaori Cosplayer and Breathless_ness plus so many more. I have probably forgotten to mention quite a few people…
Who else do you want to cosplay? Oh man, this list is real real reeaaaaaalllll long. Yennefer from The Witcher 3, Peggy Carter, Bride Tharja from Fire Emblem Heroes and Astrid from HTTYD 3 are just a few!
Tell us an odd fact about yourself! I love all things horror, paranormal, true crime and aliens. Give me the spooky stuff!
