I’ve always loved fantasy novels, games, art, anything really. I’m obsessed with Brandon Sanderson novels, Zelda, and mythology. I found out about the world of cosplay after watching a short-lived show on the SyFy network called “Heroes of Cosplay.” I think they brought something similar back recently, but I haven’t watched it.
Anyways, I was amazed by the level of skill and artistry that went into these pieces of art people created. I love that they are everyday people who work normal jobs and then transform themselves into characters from beloved series, movies, and games. I started fantasizing about all the things I could create. It was part of the reason why I wanted to learn to sew. (I still haven’t gotten very far with that endeavor.)
Recently, I found a local group who holds monthly themed shoots. It was so much fun to meet people, look at their beautiful costumes, and photograph them. I will definitely be attending more in the future!
In September, we were at the beautiful Rust Manor House in Leesburg, Virginia. They also do weddings for any brides looking for a pretty location!
