While at Wizard World St. Louis I had the opportunity to meet and talk to PippiStix! She was one of the many amazing cosplayers at this years event and she was more than willing to send us some of her recent cosplays photos and tell us about them! Here is what she had to say!
It was great to run into you. Haha! Again, it's pretty cool you're interested in my nonsense. I love chatting about cosplay and gaming, sharing tips and tricks, and all that jazz...
I mostly do game characters because that's what I'm most passionate about for sure. BioWare and Gearbox are my babies. Lol! They are also amazing to their fans. I normally do a new costume every few months or so. I don't get to attend as many conventions as I would like due to finances, but we normally get out to one also every few months or so! I think my next one will be PAX Prime, unless I can some how magically squeeze Gen Con in.
Here are some of my cosplays from Wizard World and also just a few of my favorites in. ;}
This is what I wore Saturday and it was thrown together in four days. My lovely gal pal and I both fell in love with Mad Max Fury Road, so thought doing this last minute was a fine idea. Weeeeee!!!! I'm dressed as Capable and she is the badass Furiosa! Her name is Fox Smith.
I was Leliana from Dragon Age: Inquisition on Sunday. I've loved her since the first Dragon Age and was actually challenged by Allegra Clark (the voice of Josephine in Inquisition) to make her chainmaille ensemble, so I had to!
My favorite costume that I've done is my Demon Hunter from Diablo III. It was my first time using the thermoplastic worbla and also had the most rewarding end result. I won Best Female Hero with her at Wizard World STL last year.
Aaaand lastly, before this turns into a giant novel!!!! I entered a contest for Gearbox/2K and actually won for my character. I won a trip to PAX Prime last year and got to officially rep as Athena from Borderlands:The Pre-Sequel. It was pretty damn amazing and something I shall never forget. I made some amazing friends along the way!!! I also got to shoot with Darshelle Stevens, which was pretty insane.
Okay, I've rambled enough! Weeeeeeee!!!
I just wanted to take a brief moment to thank PippiStix! It was great meeting you and even better that you took the time to send us some of your cosplay's! Be on the look out for more PippiStix featured here at LivingTheNerdLife.com in the future we have some big things planned!
Thanks again! -Joe
