Your Cosplay Resource

When I graduated from college, I promised myself that I would never write again.  My resolve must have wavered since today marks the one-year anniversary of my cosplay blog.

As I stagger through the “real world,” I’ve realized that cosplay is something I don’t want to give up.  That’s why, without a second thought, I became a theater major.  It’s also the reason why I applied to work for an amusement park as a Wardrobe Tech (washing laundry more than anything else) and why I established this website even though I couldn’t care less about blogging.  I have dedicated my life to costuming and I will continue to share my growing knowledge with the cosplay community.

As you have no doubt considered, the name “Kricket” is not a reference to any particular anime.  I chose the name because it has a strong connection to my past.  Kricket was my role play character in an online MUD, known as Dragonrealms.  This elven thief became my strength in a daunting world.  She is a reminder of who I used to be and who I am becoming.  I strive to maintain her pride, cunning, and mischief in all of my endeavors.

If you have been with us since the beginning, you will remember that our blog used to be named, “Through the Eye of the Needle.”  Over the past twelve months, we have dramatically changed the layout of our website, expanded our Cosplay Tutorial page, started taking Commissions, and provided Ask Amitie for one-on-one cosplay consultations.

We would like to thank everyone who is following us on this website, at conventions, or through Facebook.  We still have a lot to share about cosplay and will continue to develop blog posts and panels that provide you with resources to improve your costuming skills.  As we move forward, we are discussing the possibility of opening an online cosplay store.  Whether you are just learning about cosplay or are a veteran enthusiast, we promise you won’t be disappointed!
