Alicornia

is creating Cosplay

Hi! My cosplayer handle is Alicornia, but you can call me Emma. I generally build my cosplays from scratch or modify purchased pieces to give them my own spin. Now that I have built a slightly larger base of followers on Instagram (also working on Facebook), I decided to try starting a Patreon to both support my projects AND reward those who follow my progress.

I can't believe the moral support I have received so far. Thank you so much for your kind words and suggestions - even the fact that you are reading this means a lot to me!

If you'd like to chip in but aren't comfortable with the monthly contribution, I do also have a Ko-Fi account where you can make a one-time donation. <3

Who is Alicornia?
I'm a Canadian cosplayer from a small city in Ontario. I have always loved Halloween and slowly began turning my costumes toward cosplay as I finished high school and started university. The first costume I considered "cosplay" was an atrocious attempt at Misha from Pita-ten. It was a delightful mashup of pieces from thrift and dollar stores, and I didn't even bother with a pink wig. Next time, however, I decided to step up my game and ask my friend if she could teach me the basics of using a sewing machine, and well... Here we are today.

I have met some of my closest friends because of my costumes, and I continue meeting new people within the online communities. I love how easy it is these days to find people who are just as passionate about this as I am and share my work with them. <3

I enjoy both doing my best to copy a character's costume exactly and designing something new for them, be it a burlesque version for Sesshomaru (no one is safe from a gender-bent burlesque version) or a new ballgown for Disney's Ariel. I just love the opportunity to create things with my own two hands.

What is FunkSoul Cosplay?


FunkSoul Cosplay is my group - I wouldn't be here without them! Friends from my city and I joined forces a little over two years ago to put together a full Madoka Magica group, complete with weapons! We didn't realize what we were starting at the time, but now we're closing in on 1000 followers on Facebook. We recently learned just how widespread our new friends are - it seemed like they cover the globe!

What are my goals?

My main goal is to be able to keep up with my hobby and continue making content to share with you! This year I have produced cosplays at a faster rate than before, and I am just getting started. Unfortunately, that requires a lot of trips to Fabricland and online stores for pieces to complete my vision... I would also like to be able to attend more conventions so I can continue meeting new cosplayers and experience fresh locations. I have met people online from all over the world that have talked up their cons to me, and I would love to meet them and see what their city has to offer a geek like me.

In addition to new conventions, I would also appreciate the opportunity to work with new photographers. It's wonderful experiencing each photographer's unique methods and seeing their personal touches to my costumes.

And of course - the more resources I have, the better my cosplays can be! (I promise never to buy a cheap wig ever again!!!) And you wonderful people deserve only the best. <3
