I have always love the theatre: watching it, being a part of it, writing for it, all of it. And while I love being on the stage, one of my favourite parts of being in a play is getting, or creating, my costume.
However, in recent years, I’ve started going to Cons and have developed a love for Cos Play. I know I’m not alone in this, and there are a lot of people out there who will spend months creating their costumes (and these tend to be people with far more creative costume talent than I have!), but I have so much fun choosing a character, running around to store after store finding bits and pieces to make the costumes, and finally putting it all together and showing it off that as soon as one Con is done, I start planning for another.
Below are a selection of pictures of me in various costumes for plays or cons over the last few years.
