Who Am I?

I’m DeLa Doll! I’m a cosplayer, blogger, mom, and college student. I’ve always been a huge nerd with a serious artsy streak, constantly reading, gaming,writing, and crafting from as early as I can remember. In December 2014, my cosplay journey officially began and I quickly became addicted! Since then, my skills and experiences have expanded to the point that I began to document them in my blog, leading to my articles and cosplay creations being featured in publications like The Huffington Post and sites like Geek Girls.  A lot of my writing focuses on diversity and inclusion, media reviews, and my thoughts pertaining to cosplay and nerd culture. As far as my cosplay goes, I really like to cosplay characters I love and identify with,characters with unique designs, and my own original designs for for new and old characters! The outpouring of support I’ve received for all of these things is more than I could have imagined, and it makes me happy to know that I am inspiring others by doing things that I enjoy. 

Here’s what I tend to look like on a daily basis, out of cosplay

How Did I Get Here?

I’ve been what can easily be described a geek, nerd, and pop culture enthusiast since the time I knew how to operate a TV remote and learned to read. I watch a lot of everything, honestly.

I like reality television, horror movies, anime, cartoons (meaning non-anime animated stuff – yes, there’s a difference…kinda), game shows, dramas…everything. That said, I’ve always favored fantasy and horror themes.

Games are a mixed bag as well. My favorite game series titles of all time are Spyro the Dragon and Soul Calibur. I generally go for RPGs and fighting games, but I’ll play pretty much anything (as evidenced by my game collection, which consists of a lot things that have nothing do with each other that I probably bought on a whim because they were either on sale or had cool art work and character customization).

As far as cosplay goes, I’ve always been into costuming and creating. I was the kid who would plan her Halloween costume in July, so when I found out about cosplay and conventions, I quickly became addicted to them. The first “official” cosplay I’ve ever done is Marceline the Vampire Queen from Adventure Time. I wore it at Holiday Matsuri 2014. I made her bass out of elastic string and cardboard. 

I was Marceline from Adventure Time.

There’s the guitar. And also me, holding the guitar.

I’ve grown a lot since then, and you can check out a lot of my latest cosplays on Instagram, Facebook, and Patreon.
