Hello! My name is Crissy, and I am a black cosplayer.
I’ve been cosplaying since 2008 and attending conventions since 2007. Though I have been cosplaying for six years, I still consider myself a beginner cosplayer with intermediate sewing skills. I’ve been sewing since I was a child, so while I feel confident that department, I lack skills in using a lot of different types of fabric. I also don’t have much experience is using more costly materials for making props.
So why did I make this blog?
I want to share my progress! The one thing I love about the cosplay community is seeing other cosplayers’ progress. I find it interesting to read, and it never hurts to do research on how to make costumes and props. I want to be able to help others with their cosplays projects as well.
I also want to help people who’re afraid to get into cosplay because of their skin tone. I want to show that anyone can cosplay regardless of their skin, size, gender, and other physical attributes. Cosplay is a great hobby that everyone should be able to enjoy!
