so, a little bit about me eh? well, im a 27 year old guy from Hull in Yorkshire. i have a degree in Geography and Archaeology, and am currently studying for a masters degree in Aquatic Resource Management at King's College London. Ive been costuming since early 2007, and fishkeeping since 1999. Before 2007, id never picked up a needle and thread in my life. ive never been taught how to sew. i just improvised, and learned through trial and error. every cosplay i have made has simply been me experimenting and learning the techniques myself.
Um... Hi! It seems my last journal entry on here was in December 2012... Sorry i was quiet for so long XD

Shortly after my last entry, my life changed substantially overnight, and i found myself being whisked away to study for a masters degree at King's College London. Such things happen i guess, and i should really keep on top of things more.

Anyway, i am still around everyone! *waves*. I have just noticed that my pageviews have recently clicked over the 10k mark. Quite a milestone, so thankyou everyone for checking me out :)

In other news, i have a new Facebook page for my cosplay work. Find it at the following link...

I will be keeping that updated far more often than i keep this or Cosplay Island updated, so please go like me on there ^^

I will still be around on here, checking in every day, so dont think if you message me on here, i wont see it!

Thanks guys!
Stay shiny!

I believe so! I cosplayed as Zatanna today and I just happened to find a little Riddler kid that took a picture with me :P
And the cane is just perfect too! Did you make it yourself? :aww:

thats awesome! its always nice when your able to make a little kid smile :) i do a lot of charity work for children with several of my suits (mostly Spiderman), always makes it worthwhile when i see a smile :)
and yes, i did make the cane myself. its just an ordinary fancy dress cane i had lying around. i wrapped strips of craft foam on the shaft to give it the candy swirl look, and just made the ? out of foamboard, then painted the full thing gold. simple :3
