Altered State Cosplay is a master class cosplayer and prop builder born and raised in Niagara Falls, Ontario. He has been cosplaying for nearly a decade, is a film school graduate, and currently works in the props department of one of the largest repertory theatres in the world. Halloween being his favourite holiday since childhood, seeing cosplayers for the first time at a comic con opened up a world of dressing up for fun outside of Halloween he never knew existed. He has won several awards competing in the convention circuit, including Best in Show at FanExpo Toronto in 2016. Usually drawn to darker more evil characters as they often have more personality and cooler costumes than their hero counterparts, much of his portfolio is that of villains. Experienced in several areas of fabrication, ranging from foam, thermoplastics, mouldmaking, and sewing, he is always looking to adopt more skills. Keeping with his motto of, "the right material for the right job." he is never afraid of trying new techniques or using new building materials, and always encourages others to do the same, to always push the limits of their skills and talent.
