Costume Character Guide for Mature Adults

Age is nothing but a number and we are only as old (or as young) as we feel. However, many individuals have preferences when it comes to costuming. For example, some prefer to costume within their ethnicity, body type, gender or age. There's nothing wrong with costuming within your comfort zone. It's all about having fun, right? As long as you are having fun and expressing yourself, you're doing it right. To accommodate costumers who prefer to cosplay characters within their own age group, The Confessions of a Cosplay Girl Blog presents a list of 20 mature adult characters (both female and male).

2015 Wrap Up

2015 has come to an end (when did that happen?). In a year where my goal was to focus on attending less conventions and improving my finances rather than traveling to a show every weekend, I somehow found myself busier than ever. Managing and coordinating Heroes Alliance Charity Events, running my birthday party business, modeling, business and cosplay shoots, in addition to professional bookings (such as Wonder Woman and Katniss) kept me the busy bee. Below is a gallery of my 2015 adventures. What a blessing it was!

How Spoilers Ruin the Experience of Storytelling

Spoilers on the internet are nothing new however on the week of December 7th, I witnessed it escalate beyond anything I had ever seen before. The new episode of the CBS television series Supergirl "Human For A Day" was ruined for many when countless Facebookers posted screen caps of the big character reveal during and after the show aired. The geek community had reached its breaking point. After years of shows being ruined for them such as Game of Thrones, Doctor Who, Once Upon A Time and The Walking Dead (just to name a few), the Supergirl spoiler was the final straw. Arguments broke out, people were unfriended, some even blocked. In the wake of the frustration there were those on the other side of the argument that didn't care they ruined a friends viewing experience. No one was going to tell them what they could and could not post on their page, right? There was some colorful language on both sides of the argument.  I literally took a break from scrolling through my Newsfeed for a couple of days until things cooled down. It was getting downright ugly on Facebook. Is this a big deal? You're damn right it is. Spoilers on the internet are ruining the experience of storytelling. It's turned into a civil war in the geek community.

Why Wonder Woman Matters

Since her debut in All Star Comics #8 released in 1941, Wonder Woman has become the most famous and recognizable female superhero in the world. This feminist icon is a warrior princess and a United Nations Ambassador. She displays extreme intellect and compassion. Princess Diana of Themyscira has also become a part of pop culture. She has been featured on countless merchandise, toys, comics, animated movies and television shows. For some reason (and I'm still scratching my head on this one), it took DC Comics 75 years to bring her to the big screen. Wonder Woman starring Gal Gadot is currently filming and slated for a 2017 release. We will get our first look at Gal as Diana in 'Batman VS Superman: Dawn of Justice', March 25, 2016.

Implied Beauty Shoot with Dru Phillips

A few months ago I paid a social visit to Georgia to visit extended family. While in town I shot with one of my favorite photographers and favorite people; Dru Phillips. Dru is a true artist with a creative eye. A marvelous director and outstanding photographer. This was our second time shooting together. The theme for round two was an implied topless beauty shoot. These images are amongst my favorite and are tasteful, classy and artistic. Be sure to check out more of Dru's photography work HERE and his Cosplay Photography on Facebook. Makeup and hair by me.
