I’m Henna, the founder of CostumeKitten! Cosplaying is my passion!
The story behind CostumeKitten is quite simple, really. I wanted to create a blog and website to help all of you fellow cosplayers out there.
There are tons and tons of personal cosplay blogs out there, but my idea was a bit different from this. I want to give people useful information about all of the favourite characters they want to cosplay. Not just the ones I’ve done and I’m interested in.
Alongside this I hope to be useful to anybody really by giving hints on buying wigs, costumes, accessories… and finding and making all those little details that make the important finishing touches!
So who am I?
I’ve been into cosplay for 10 years now. Wow, that seems like a long time.
It all started from Sailor Moon. Lately a princess complex has taken over me (refer to the photo above) and it seems to have come to stay.
My parents never dressed me up as a kid apart from a couple of handed down dresses which I wouldn’t really even call costumes. I never saw anybody else dressed up either, except witches during Easter (yeah, you heard right, Easter. Not Halloween. Because my country is weird.)
That was until I was a teenager and Internet came along (now I feel REALLY old!) That’s when I saw a photo of a cosplayer for the first time. I was smitten. And who knows, maybe because I’d never dressed up I regressed back to a little girl who wanted to be her favourite super heroine Sailor Moon.
And I haven’t “grown up” since.
Since I’m a cosplayer in heart and soul, I strive for my costumes to look perfect down to every last little detail. This in my opinion is the difference between cosplayers and people who “just dress up”. Sure, you can do it just for fun, but when I do it I want to feel and look absolutely fabulous!
And that’s what I hope to help you do here, too!
I hope you enjoy reading our stories and don’t hesitate to reach out, I am always on the lookout for new story ideas and affiliates too.
