About me

My name is Simone aka Skymone Cosplay.
Since I was a little girl, I loved dressing up and my parents would make me the most epic Halloween costumes. When I grew up and moved away from home, I needed a hobby and an excuse to wear costumes. I had heard of cosplay before, but hadn’t gotten into it, because I thought it was only for anime and manga characters. When I learnt that cosplay can be anything, I decided to try it out and in 2013 I debuted my first cosplay and competed in my first contest. Since I had no idea what I was doing and didn’t know pre-recording audio was a thing, I obviously didn’t place. But in the years after, I improved both my crafting and my acting (though, less so on the last part) and did win some competitions. I also wrote my eBook, Cosplay Materials, which I published for free here on my webpage.

I quickly discovered that being part of the event as an invited guest, organizer or judge is what I truly enjoy, so I no longer compete, unless on rare occasions.

Below are some of my achievements. I usually either work together with my husband, Zibartas Cosplay or with my cosplay group, Warcrafters, at events where I am guest/organizer/judge. When we travel with our group, our goal is to display cosplay props and help new-comers learn about cosplay and how to make your own.
