WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE BEVERAGE?

My favourite beverage is probably Irn Bru. It’s a fizzy drink, hard to describe the taste but tastes gorgeous.

TELL ME A LITTLE ABOUT YOURSELF.

Hi I’m Elizabeth and I’m 24 years old and am from Yorkshire, England. I’m a Freelance Photographer, Videographer and Cosplayer as well as Cosplay Commissioner. I’ve also slightly delved into Acting but really need to do more! I’ve just finished some work with the BBC called ‘All About Cosplay!’ Was several Months in the making. I’ll leave the Link below:

WHEN DID YOU START COSPLAYING?

I think I started around 2013 I think? My first Cosplay was Castiel from Supernatural. It was all Charity Shop bought and I loved it! I then got persuaded to go to MCM Manchester Comic Con and I Cosplayed as Vanellope from Disney’s Wreck it Ralph!

WHY DO YOU COSPLAY?

I Cosplay mainly because I’m a survivor of Trauma and Abuse. I discuss it slightly more in the BBC Video I did. I use it as a form of therapy and for coping with a distraction.

WHAT TYPES OF COSPLAY DO YOU DO?

I mainly Cosplay from different Franchises such as Elizabeth (Bioshock Infinite), Ellie (Last Of Us), Max Caulfield & Rachel Amber (Life is Strange), Jareth (Labyrinth) and Jen the Gelfling (The Dark Crystal.) I have done many others but those are my mains ones.

WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE COSPLAYS?

My favourite Cosplays are defiantly Burial at Sea Elizabeth (Bioshock Infinite), Max Caulfield (Life is Strange), Ellie (Last of Us), Jareth (Labyrinth) & Jen the Gelfling (The Dark Crystal). Heck all of them that I’ve mentioned above and even ones I haven’t mentioned!

WHAT IS SOMETHING YOU WANT TO COSPLAY BUT PROBABLY NEVER WILL?

Sarah’s Ballroom Outfit from Labyrinth (1986). It is such an amazing gown but something I probably wouldn’t be able to make. But it would be a dream to Cosplay.

DO YOU MAKE, BUY, OR SPECIAL ORDER YOUR COSPLAYS?

I usually make my own Cosplays or modify existing pieces. If I can buy something existing and modify then that’s my first port of call. It just makes the whole thing easier. The only Costume I ever got Commissioned with Jareth the Goblin King’s Within You (Labyrinth) Costume by Dugg who does Commissions.

WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT COSPLAY?

The Community mainly and being with other people who love it too. I love being able to be with others that love the whole experience too. Distracting myself is another main reason I love Cosplaying. It’s just fun to do!

WHAT IS THE MOST DIFFICULT THING FOR YOU ABOUT COSPLAY?

I would say is making the Costumes. I’m a self taught Sower so that’s difficult. I’m constantly learning new skills.

Who is your favorite character to cosplay?

My favourite Character who I’ve just started making from scratch is Violet Baudelaire from the 2004 Lemony Snicket’s A Series Of Unfortunate Events Film. Archive took it out of storage just for me and sent new references photos. It looks nothing like it does on Film. So I’m making it as close as I can! I always wanted to own the dress since I was a child.

IF YOU COULD LIVE IN OR VISIT ANY FANTASY WORLD, WHERE WOULD YOU GO?

I would say Thra (The Dark Crystal) or Middle Earth (The Hobbit/Lord of the Rings.)

Where do you get your inspiration for your cosplays?

It’s mainly just from watching Films or TV Shows and playing Games. If I love a Character then that’s the main reason I Cosplay them. Because I LOVE that Character. That’s where it normally starts for me.

WHAT ARE YOUR “FANDOMS”?

My fandoms are: Doctor Who, Sherlock, Supernatural, Muppets, Life is Strange, Bioshock, Last of Us, Labyrinth, Dark Crystal, Legend, Angela Carter, Lemony Snicket’s A Series Of Unfortunate Events, Hobbit/LOTR. Those are my main ones.

WHAT IS SOMETHING YOU WISH BEGINNING COSPLAYERS KNEW?

To have fun! To ask for help if needed or advice on anything! Never be afraid to ask for help. And just have fun. That’s what Cosplay should be.

WHAT TIPS OR TRICKS DO YOU HAVE FOR OTHER COSPLAYERS?

Learn how to Sew. It’ll help for modifying Costumes! It’s a very important skill I think a lot should know about and learn.

WHAT IS SOMETHING YOU WISH NON-COSPLAYERS KNEW?

I wish Non-Cosplayers knew that Cosplaying is fun. That’s what it is and it’s not hurting anyone!

WHAT COSPLAYS ARE YOU WORKING ON?

I’ve just started making from scratch is Violet Baudelaire from the 2004 Lemony Snicket’s A Series Of Unfortunate Events Film. Archive took it out of storage just for me and sent new references photos. It looks nothing like it does on Film. So I’m making it as close as I can! I always wanted to own the dress since I was a child.

WHAT COSPLAYS DO YOU WANT TO DO IF MONEY AND TIME WERE NO OBJECT?

That’s the same as above that I’ve just mentioned. I’ve spent hundreds of pounds on materials etc just to make it well.
