Hi I'm Rick. I'm a charming geek who lives to cosplay and is starting it up again with Anime Expo this year.
I'm Rick. I think cosplay-ing is fun. Its been a while since I have cosplayed, but I know its a new convention experience when you do it. It allows me to be very creative and nerdy while being manly working with power tools, sharp knives and flammable materials. Its not a hobby many of my friend share. We are all geeks, but I am the only one who wants to don a full on Rick Hunter Flight Suit for a convention or a N7 armor. Its not enough for me to hit a con with a clever shirt, sometimes I want revel even more in my geekiness.
I cosplayed as Rick Hunter a few years back. I'm build a flight helmet and flight suit. Fun times. I just finished a Commander Shepard costume that I am debuting this year.
I'd like to just meet up with other cosplayers who can show off their works and learn some new techniques from each other. I go to the 405th alot, but having someone local that I can talk to and work with would be a cool learning experience for both people. A lot of the armor guys use paper craft techique that requires building the paper model, fiberglassing, bondo and its a long process, then there is the Foam armor crowd thats popular and having people who can learn from each other would be fun. Maybe one to plan cosplay groups. I always wanted to do a Avatar the last Airbender group or a Robotech group. The only time I had a strong group was the first time I cosplayed, there needs to be more love of the classics!
