Omnic Cosplay Showcase: Venomous Cosplay
Since a child, Collin had always been interested in costuming. Then after attending his first convention, he fell head over heels for the creative world of cosplay. Since that first experience back in 2013, he has continued to refine his craft and push himself to create amazing costumes from the worlds of Overwatch, Assassins Creed, and Dark Souls. We at Omnic Post are excited to introduce you all to Collin Kelley a.k.a Venomous Cosplay!
How did you get into cosplaying? How long have you been cosplaying for?
I have been into costume making since I was a kid. My mother was an art teacher, and still is, going on almost 30 years of teaching. I didn’t officially get into cosplay until 2013, when there was a local convention that was featuring my favorite cosplayer, Jessica Nigri. From there, my artistic interest in cosplay exploded and I wanted to learn more about this new, exciting, and nerdy world of cosplay.
Why did you choose to cosplay Reaper (Solider 24)? What drew you in about the character?
What was the biggest struggle when either crafting and/or wearing the costume?
Do you have any memorable interactions with other cosplayers, fans, voice actors, artists, etc. when you cosplayed your hero?
What hero or hero skin would you love to cosplay?
How do you choose which characters to cosplay in general?
Who is your favorite Overwatch hero?
Do you have any upcoming costumes planned or currently in the works?
Currently, I’m not in the process of developing any new costumes due to college starting soon, and we all know it’s hard to manage cosplay and school at the same time. So, I’ll have to plan when I feel inspired and when I have the time to start on new cosplays.
