Another “pretty stuff Aimee loves on Friday” post!
Tabitha Lyons just recently got into the cosplay scene, but she’s been making props at Artyfakes and LARPing (Live Action Role Playing) since she was 12, roughly! She tends to cosplay powerful female characters or costumes that have awesome props or armor. I think it’s cool that her dad and her work together at Artyfakes and on her costumes.
Amazingly, she (with Artyfakes) created this (above) World of Warcraft Kyra costume for LARPing! I don’t know that much about LARPing, but such a complex costume with wings would be hard enough in a convention setting, not to mention running around in a forest doing “battle”!
When Artyfakes posted these photos of Tabitha in Skyrim armor, people started saying it was “cosplay” and that’s how Tabitha learned about cosplay and related conventions. (Skyrim photo by Infinities Edge Studios.)
And can we just stop for a moment and talk about how much I love her cosplaying Rogue from X-men with a giant Sentinel head? ( Photographed by StealthBuda.) She and her dad made this Sentinel head in TWO DAYS!
There’s an interview with Tabitha on Following The Nerd including more fun photos of her Rogue cosplay and there’s a great video interview with Tabitha below where she talks about how she got started making props, LARPing and cosplay.
