Hello, I’m Dee! I’m an Oklahoma-based cosplayer and travel to many of the Dallas area cons. I’ve been cosplaying for about 4 years, in the past I have done costuming which led to my love of cosplay. I’ve worked with Worbla, Foam and many other armor materials, I like to construct cosplays around thrift store finds, making something from nothing is the cosplay way!
I’ve worked behind the scenes with Bacon Samurai for the Dallas Comic-Con after parties and love being a part of any aspect of the cons. My most notable cosplay would most likely be Silver Sable with my personal tendency being cosplays that people do not normally see or know as I love talking about them when asked. I enjoy all types of nerd culture from Firefly and Dr. Who (my car is the Tardis!) to Battlestar Galactica and Star Trek (Deep Space 9 is my fave!), I also am partial to certain Anime such as Ghost in the Shell and DBZ. I spent most of the early WoW years addicted to leveling my mage which I still do when new content drops but Blizzard and their Garrisons frustrated me pre Legion. I enjoy tabletop gaming such as D&D and Settlers of Catan (my current go-to game.) While I’m not as avid with comics as I used to be I still like to settle down with a random pick from the local store or pull out an old favorite if I don’t have any new books in line (but I read novels a LOT.)
I’ve recently spent some time guesting at Geekinomicon, Marvelous Nerd Years Eve and promoting Yogomi.com, a new NerdBlog site. I would say that being part of the Con scene has definitely been something that satisfies the ever-growing nerd in me; there is always a new fandom to be a part of or fellow con-goers enlighten you about something you might never have found alone. After all, sharing your love of geek culture is essentially all a con is about! I can’t wait to meet everyone and see all this community has to offer with their cosplays!
