Welcome to the Monthly Cosplay Artist Spotlight!
This month on Cosplay Artist Spotlight, we are featuring an artist who has a deep love of Warhammer 40k Lore. Her amazing work with CosAwesome Studios brought us together for this month’s interview!
1. How did you get your start in Cosplay?
Lucky: I was actually apart of the SCA (Society for Creative Anachronism). They’re an international organization that essentially reenacts what life was like pre-17th century Europe. Because of them, I learned a lot about sewing, how to make my own clothing patterns, even how to make buttons!

3. Where did you meet your Cosplay Group? What do you stand for? Why do you work together?
Lucky: James Wulfgar from the Wulfgar Weapons & Props / CosAwesome Studios actually befriended me and my husband one day on facebook! He had mentioned that he’d seen me in passing with some of my friends and thought we were cool people. I eventually met up with all of the CosAwesome Studios and ended up with some of the coolest friends I could ask for. They eventually invited me to be apart of the group! Through them, they created the majority of our Space Wolves cosplays (they had actually done it earlier in the year at C2E2) while we added the little touches that give each armor it’s own personality (like the chains and teeth).
