LadySnip3r's Profile Picture
Amanda McGinnis
Artist | Hobbyist | Other
I created the geeky fashion blog Console to Closet and am an avid cosplayer. I love gaming (which most of my cosplays are inspired by), doing arts and crafts, reading, and designing cosplays. I also love going to conventions and meeting new people at them - look out for me at the conventions listed below!

I'm a new cosplayer - I started April 2011 and have been obsessed since. I make all my costumes by myself, do my own makeup, and build my own props (sometimes with the help of my lovely fiancè, Tyler). As of now, I'm not doing any commissions, but if there is an aspect of my costumes that you'd like to replicate, or want help doing so, please reach out to me and we can talk. I'm constantly trying to improve my cosplay quality, difficulty, and skills - so please feel free to offer any advice or helpful tips over comments or notes.

I'm primarily using DeviantArt to showcase my cosplays - but I might throw in a few of my crafts as well. Feel free to get in touch, ask questions or leave some feedback. I try to do tutorials for each costume and will include links to them on the image descriptions.

I'm always looking for photographers for various cons, so please feel free to reach out if you are an interested photographer. Also, feel free to edit any of my images (you'll probably do a better job than me), but please let me know if you plan on publishing them somewhere on the interwebs. Thanks!

In other cosplay news, I've made some excellent progress on my Maya costume from Borderlands 2. I'll be wearing it to PAX East in March. So far I've finished my gun, shoes, and ordered everything I need. I'll be doing a makeup test in the next few weeks so stay tuned!

Have a great week :D

I'd love to upgrade my DA page and any help is really appreciated as almost all of my (very little) income goes straight to cosplaying. Thank you :)

From the G&S forums and found this after some link jumping. The cosplays look great, and I'll definitely be following your channel and DA now. ^-^

Can't tell you how much I LOVE your blog, deviantart page, facebook page, and. . . yeah, I think I follow you just about everywhere XD. For us girl gamers who are sucky at fashion, you are just what the doctor ordered! I've been sending your page to all of my other gamer friends, and we're already planning shopping trips to revamp our wardrobes. (I was that kid in high school who wouldn't wear anything a Jedi or bounty hunter wouldn't wear XD - so I spent a lot of time in my dance clothes (dance team, you know) and sweats :P)

I would like to congratulate you on your gallery, great work! :)

Thank you! :D

Oh, do not thank me :)

I saw in your gallery conzoco some characters, such as Lara and Aela, and one that I really liked is the version of Gears.

The Tomb game series has always fascinated me, where you not only have to kill, but also solve puzzles, etc.. Moreover, Lara is agile and skillful, a great enemy if you face it! hehe
