Costume Design: Overview
Cosplay, or cosplaying, involves the art of making costumes and dressing up as a character, whether it be an existing character or one you've created yourself.
I first began making costumes when I was inspired to shoot a music video for the track "Archangel" by Two Steps From Hell. I never ended up making that video, but the costume I created for the main character became, after some modification, my first attempt at Ezio Auditore from Assassin's Creed. I entered it into a local qualifying cosplay competition in Athens, and won. I was sent to London, to the 2014 EuroCosplay Championships, and since then I've been making costumes, armor, clothing, and leather goods for myself and clients.
It's been quite a journey, but I'm excited to continue creating!
