Cauldron of Mischief will be at Yorkshire Cosplay Con 2018
Hey there! My name is Laura but I'm also nicknamed as 'Sebby'. I'm a self-taught costume & prop maker and have been making and creating since I could hold a pen. I did attend university and achieved a 2:1 BA Honours Degree in Computer Animation, but I've always been passionate about costuming and making things.
It wasn't until I attended my first comic convention in 2007 that I started to want to make bigger and more complex projects as well as experiment with a wide variety of materials including, thermoplastics, foam, clay, silicone, resin and much more. I adored seeing the fantastic costumes around me and after that convention I've had a constant flow of inspiration and desire to build and create more.
I also began to offer costume commissions which started out small and then built up to full costumes and eventually included props too. I've also taken an intensive prosthetic & special effect make up course with Hybrid Fx which I very much enjoyed and learned a whole lot of new things! I took multiple pages of notes, photos and video to make a document for myself to always go back to. I very much enjoy being able to work with multiple materials and have the opportunity to make a different range of costumes and props.
I'm also an active cosplayer and I adore being able to express myself through my work. I've been cosplaying since 2005 and have always been a fan of anime / manga and multiple film related topics. Attending my first comic con 2 years after getting into cosplay really boosted my confidence and motivation to keep going as well as creating. It's fantastic to be able to portray a variety of characters through costumes & make up and sharing the experience with others, one of my favorite parts is meeting people & making friends as well as attending the photo shoots and shoots for little movies, as you can really begin to see the characters come to life as you portray them, especially when working with others too!
