/blows dust off comm

So I apparently subscribed to this comm at some point in the distant past and promptly forgot about it, until today when I went 'man I really wish there was a DW comm to talk about cosplay stuff, I should make one' and started checking possible usernames, only to stumble across this. So - anyone still out there? Give a shout if you are!

And to provide something by way of content/intro - I'm Cocoa, I've been cosplaying for sixteen years now, and I also run Anime Boston's Cosplay Repair Station and occasionally do cosplay related panels. I love discussing techniques and processes and nerding about materials, which I sometimes do on tumblr, except I feel awkward about my Walls Of Text there, because tumblr is not a good platform for that.

Hi, Cocoa! I'm Caitlin, a.k.a. Lady Akumu in the cosplay community. (Twenty-five likes-strong on FB, haha!) What kind of cosplays do you do? Thus far, I've only done video game-related cosplays (mostly Resident Evil), but I'd really like to do a Rowena Ravenclaw cosplay one day as well as a Samara Morgan one.

Haha, same here! I have other things going on, and I only go to a few cons a year, so I rarely ever do any real marketing for it.

Nice! I love Ada as well as Leon (depending on the version of him), so I'd love to see pics of your cosplays sometime! From RE, I've done Ingrid Hunnigan and Helena Harper (the Tall Oaks outfit). I'm going to cosplay Helena's Lanshiang outfit, the mayor's daughter, and Excella at some point, too. I like doing the lesser known characters in that series. ^^
