This week on the Cosplay Artist Spotlight, we’re featuring a quartet of Cosplayers who band together in service to the Emperor, creating cosplays that bring Glory to his name! Check out the first part of a multi-week feature of Beard Cosplay!
How did you get your start in cosplay? How long have you been creating your projects? What inspires you to work in the cosplay realm?
Mike: Well, started as Idea to surprise the local Warhammer-Store and now i`m stuck in here with these people. 😛
Elisian: I was always interested in cosplay, and started around 2016, thanks to my brother.
Cecidith: Like many others i thin, who just said i want that, lets build it. I think i`ve been creating stuff since the last 2-3 years. The first insoiration comes from another Marine, and then it went on.
Simon: I started in 2015 when my ex girlfriend asked me to join her to go on a convention. This was the first time I heard about cosplay and was very impressed after watching some Youtube-Videos about it.
I liked the creativity and thought by myself: “I want to make this, too!” And so I started with modeling and sewing my first cosplay, Zer0 from Borderlands 2.
What is your strongest construction aspect?
Elisian: I dont have any, i think.
Mike: To get something finished, through the whole process, planing, building and seeing the finished product.
Simon: I think it’s the planning and creating new solutions for any challenges like “How am I suppose do this sh..t?!?”.
Cecidith: Like Simon, it depends on what i am doing at the moment. It is a little bit of all aspects.
What is your favorite type of cosplay work to do?
Cecidith: I like to paint my costumes, to see the finished product in the end.
Mike: Not to burn myself with the heatgun.
Elisian: Painting, definitely paniting. I love to get my stuff colored.
Simon: The work with EVA-Foam, my favorite kind of material. 🙂
What are your favorite completed projects, or your most popular?
Mike: Well, i only have the one Marine, so at the moment, its that one.
Simon: The most famous one is my Ravenguard-Spacemarine. I created an Ultramarine before, but it has not made very far (mostly because of bad crafting and design).
Elisian: My Adepta Sororitas.
Cecidith: My Black Templar armor, because it is my first one.
What material is your favorite to work with?
Simon: As I mentioned before, EVA-Foam.
Elisian: EVA-Foam, because if iits finished, its extremly comfy to wear.
Mike: Im with Elisian, as she said, its nearly comfy to wear in 25° Sunlight, and easy to cut and glue.
Cecidith: So we can all agree, EVA-Foam is our preffered material.
What are your favorite fandoms? Favorite characters?
Cecidith: Space Wolves, cause they are badass.
Elisian: Everything that shows strength.
Mike: What to say, original a Trekkie I now kinda stick to Warhammer.
Simon: That’s a difficult question, because I have not really a favorite fandom or character.
What kind of games do you play? Videogames? Tabletop? Wargames?
Elisian: Mostly Fantasygames on my PC.
Mike: Not to exaggerate, al lot of all.
Simon: Mostly Video-Games.
Cecidith: A little bit of Tabletop, bur mostly the Warhammer Video Games.
