Cosplay lovers, meet Kitty Lappin from Scotland. After completely falling in love with cosplay and the convention scene in 2013, Kitty has thrown herself into crafting costumes full force, regularly attending conventions and sharing her creations on her Facebook page.
Prior to 2013, Kitty had never been to a convention but after hearing that a local convention were looking for cosplayers to promote their event, she pulled out her old Supergirl costume and never looked back!
This year, Kitty's goal is to become more active on her YouTube channel, showing behind-the-scenes footage of what goes into her costume shoots.
Watch how her Lara Croft costume was created in the clip below:
Most importantly of all, Kitty's cosplay has changed her life in more ways than one and been a huge help in her battle with depression. Kitty says on her Patreon:
One of my favourite things about cosplay is the community. You get to geek out with people that love the same things as you and I've met so many friends through sharing a mutual love for a fandom. I have also struggled with depression and BPD since I was a child and cosplay has helped me overcome to many of my demons. Whenever things get overwhelming for me, I can always throw myself into crafting and clear my mind.
