Fandoms include team Fortress 2, Ao No Exorcist, Pokemon, Persona 4, Homestuck, Hetalia, Madoka Magica, TWEWY, and a bunch of other stuff.
I love cosplaying, videogames, acting, stage combat, photography, roleplaying, dancing, and painting, but I'm pretty bad them.
If you don't want to follow a personal blog and just want cosplay, my cosplay-only blog is here.

AKA COSPLAY HACKS: THE POST.
So I don’t SPEND MONEY on cosplay, because I am a poor college student, but essentially, I make a lot of my cosplays, cosplay props, and various other things from random junk I find around my apartment. Organized by shape, here’s a list of really useful stuff you can find laying around, in a dumpster, or for cheap. I live in FL, USA, so some of this stuff may not be readily available depending on where you live, but hopefully it gives you some ideas!
- Oatmeal containers
- bleach wipe containers
- pringles tubes
- mailing tubes
- toilet paper and paper towel tubes
- dried out markers
- empty pill bottles
- empty aerosol cans
- upholstery fabric roll tubes
- shampoo bottles
Squares and rectangles:
- Pizza boxes
- cereal boxes
- mailing boxes
- CD and DVD cases
- the inside of a fabric bolt
- candy boxes (nerds, swedish fish, etc)
- VHS tape boxes and tapes
Triangles and weird shapes:
