Because reality is overrated...

Hello one and all! The name is Laura but many prefer to call me Rebel. I am quite the nerd. I cosplay, craft, write fan fiction, and have spent so many hours playing video games that even Steam lost count. I am a diehard Mass Effect fan, spending at least 2000 hours playing it. I'm also a Whovian, Sherlocked, a Brony, and proud Louisianan.

So please... enjoy your stay. ^_^

Cosplaying should be for everyone and anyone. There is too much negativity in the cosplaying community and people are losing the will to dress up. Cosplay isn’t a competition… but a celebration! It should bring us together instead of putting walls up between us. Let’s bring back the fun! Put the PLAY back into cosplay!

A cosplay movement everyone should get behind! Promote positivity in our creative community! Join their Facebook Group and Facebook Page too!

The Truth Behind Heroes Of Cosplay: New Orleans

image

Heroes of Cosplay is a popular tv series on SyFy that showcases certain cosplayers at conventions across the US. But what you might not know about it is how this show treats the people at conventions… the ones that aren’t the “elite” few, the cosplayers and convention goers behind the camera. I never had to deal with them until they came into my town - New Orleans. I thought it would be a great opportunity to see this show in person but my opinion quickly changed.

The way they treated my fellow cosplaying friends and the way they took over our beloved costume contest was completely inexcusable. There were a few mishaps on the convention floor but a majority of the issues came around the time of the Costume Contest. This was my third time attending Wizard World New Orleans and usually the costume contest is done in 1-2 hours. This one took over 2 hours just to get through the individual category. It was clearly being staged because only certain cosplayers were being allowed to talk about their costumes on stage, everyone else was rushed off. I didn’t realize it at the time but the ones they stopped to chat about were mostly Heroes of Cosplay participants. They didn’t care one bit about anyone else. It became really painful to watch/participate when I saw beautiful and elaborate costumes getting rushed off because they weren’t one of the “elite few” from the show.

After the contest was over, my friends and I went on to enjoy the rest of the convention as much as possible. Some of us completely shut out the competition because it was the black mark of the whole show. I began gathering stories from my friends and fellow Wizard World convention goers. Then other people began approaching me with their account of what happened. Here are our collected thoughts:

Encounters on the Convention Floor:

This happened Saturday around 2:30pm the Cosplay Circuit Digital Hall Awards photobooth, where they take your photograph and post it on the Wizard World site. Jesse Lagers tried to cut in line in front of me. The obnoxious camera crew’s goal was to cut the “Costume Contest Winner” into the line. I was sandwiched right between him and the AVP guys. The costume contest didn’t happen until later that night. They decided the winners for the contest before the show even started.

I just want to chime in for a second here… I have always loved Yaya, she was always nice to me over the last 3 years and I really admired her up until WW New Orleans. Now I’m a photographer at alot of Cons and I’ve worked for Wizard World for years. This year I wasn’t working for them because I was working exclusively for a very well known website. When I passed by her just in walking around the con floor she pretty much stopped me and was like Oh you ARE going to take my picture now. I was crazy

I kept seeing all these beautiful TARDIS and Dalek dresses and wanted to make my own… but something I haven’t seen done before. I love making Baker’s scarf in all the different versions and lengths so I decided to make my own version as a dress!

This is completely crocheted. It measures 48 inches long and is crocheted to fit tightly on my body. Once I was complete, I sewed a liner on the inside and put it on. It fit on the first try. I’m planning on making more versions of this (like a halter-top) and making other iconic accessories into crocheted dresses (like Jayne Cobb’s hat).

I wore it to Con Kasterborous in Huntsville, AL and it won Most Creative in their costume contest. The best moment happened right afterwards when I was standing in front of the main room after the costume contest and Sylvester McCoy came up and said, “Now THAT is a scarf!” He really loved my scarf dress and said I looked fantastic in it. :3
