NATIONAL POST: How and why cosplayers make their costumes

Last Halloween, I bought some red resistance bands and tied them around my head and arms to become Elektra. The Halloween before, I painted a yellow lightning bolt on a black shirt to become a badass Ms. Marvel. That was my half-assed foray into the world of cosplay. Other people put way more effort into their costumes. Just look at Lee Scion, who I like to call Canada's Queen of Cosplay. She spent a night nailing in leather belts to a skirt to get the detailing of a Final Fantasy character correct. I love the passion of these guys. Here's my feature in the National Post about the geeky passion of making costumes.
