I'm a cosplayer who specializes in exotic weapons and costumes, especially those revolving around the classic Devil May Cry series :P If it's unique, and if the idea grabs me, I'll give it a shot.

I also do some digital artwork, some photography, and occasional poetry as well

I do take prop commissions. I make swords, guns, and jewelry (no armor or full costumes at the moment, sorry). If you have need of my skills, feel free to send me a note and we'll work something out :)
Interests
I have recently gotten multiple requests to watch cosplayers' FB pages, and I am going to address this once. This is pattern of narcissistic behavior I noticed about a year ago taking root, and it has not gotten better.

Cosplay for me is NOT a popularity contest. It's not about how many "fans" you can acquire. It's about bringing to life characters you love and series you enjoy. It's about making friendship....REAL friends, not drooling fans you keep at arms length. I am addressing both genders here to be clear. I cannot and WILL not in good conscience support this kind of behavior, so I will NOT be adding any fan pages on my facebook

If you run a props business like some of me or some of my associates, then by all means a Facebook page. It's part of your advertising. It literally is part of your livelihood. If it's like a group of cosplayers reaching out to each other (or used as such), more power to you. These are examples of FB use I support. [EDIT] I also understand and respect the use of cosplay accounts to protect oneself from creepers, stalkers, and unsavory individuals. It's about privacy and keeping yourself safe, which is very important in this crazy world.

However, if your page is just there to stroke your ego...I'm going to be blunt here. GET. OVER. YOURSELF. Your self esteem should not hinge on how many bloody "fans" you have. I am aware this may sound harsh, but it's part of growing up. You want people to keep up to date with what you're up to cosplay wise, write a journal on deviantArt or one of the many dedicated sites to the hobby.

My point is be at peace with yourself; don't let your happiness or self esteem rely on how many people click the "like" button. You should enjoy cosplay because you enjoy the hobby; if you're in it just to find validation, then with all due respect, you're in the wrong hobby.
