What’s your name & how old are you? My name is Lachlan, I go by Cosplay.k.i.n.g on Instagram and I am 18 years of age.

How long have you been cosplaying? I have been cosplaying since December 2018, So I am reasonably new to the scene in comparison to some of my many cosplay friends.

What inspired you to start cosplaying? The main reason behind cosplaying was because I wanted to improve my skills as a costume designer as that is the career path I wish to pursue. The other major reason is because I have always loved drama and acting, so taking some of my favourite characters and getting to act like them for children and photoshoots is very fun for me.

What was your First Cosplay? My first cosplay was Damian Wayne as Robin from the Batman ‘Rebirth’ Comics. It was my first time working with foam, sealants, spray paint and pattern making, however, I believe it turned out really good considering it was my first time.

What is your most recent cosplay? My most recent cosplay has been Beast Boy (Gar) from the DC tv show Titans. it was very challenging working with body paint and needs to be tweaked with before I feel comfortable bringing him back to a convention in the future.

What cosplays are you currently working on? Currently I am working on finishing my second third Robin suit to be debuted at Brisbane OzComicCon. This one is my second Damian Wayne suit which is from several of the recent batman animated movies.

Who are your favourite cosplayers in the community? Some of my favourite cosplayers in the community are th3_boy_1der, castlecosplay and infamousbylaura due to their commitment to their craft and attention to detail with characters. I’ll also mention my many amazing friends who also produce outstanding work, twerkingherkin, aussiewebslinger_cosplays, ashamareecosplay, ellykatcosplay, pajama_boy_wonder, kouvufox, thinkcartooncosplay and danmales_cosplay just to name a few

Who else do you want to cosplay? Two characters I have been wanting to try and cosplay Nightcrawler from X-Men or Dick Grayson as Nightwing some day. There are just a few other characters I would like to finish first. as these both require extensive work put into them with body paint and muscle suits.

Tell us an odd fact about yourself! There are a lot of weird things about me, one of which can be that I can recite the whole movie of the Little Mermaid off by heart.
