I am like so into Pokémon ORAS! Like, seriously.
Here are some "screenshots" featuring my Delinquent cosplay.
The Delinquents are a trainer class in the new ORAS Pokémon games. They are known for using mostly dark type pokémon.
I decided to make this costume because I knew it would be super easy and quick. Plus it gives me a great option for cosplaying when I'm behind the Artplaymix table in Artist's Alley: no wig necessary, and I don't have to worry about bumping other people (or their tables) with accessories like wings and tails, and I get to lounge around in sneakers and a sweatsuit all day, AND it's Pokémon-related!
Win, win, win, WIN!!

The first con that I attended was AWA '96. I cosplayed as 'Devil Hunter Yohko' and had a wonderful time! By '98 I was competing in masquerades at Master level, & was extremely fortunate to work as a booth model for several companies. In 2000 the CEO of SyCoNet Productions asked me to be the company's spokesmodel, which was AWESOME!!! I met Jason (my husband) at DragonCon '00. He had been working in the American Comics field for several years, and encouraged me to pursue a career as a colorist. I took time-off from cosplay to concentrate on my career and family life, but still attended conventions regularly as an artist. Years passed, and I thought that I was done with cosplay. Then an old friend asked me to break out some of my costumes for NDK '07. I agreed, and before I knew it, I was hooked again!|
Currently I live in CO with my husband Jason, and our son Jathen. At conventions, you can usually find me at the ARTPLAYMIX.COM booth selling art prints and other goodies.
