Kalum is a cosplayer and prop designer from Bedfordshire. He's been cosplaying since 2016 and it's been a huge part of his life since. He works closely with @ld3dstore to design and produce props to help bring some of his favourite fandoms to life! What are these fandoms? you may be asking...one of his biggest fandoms has to be Marvel. Kalum grew up surrounded by the MCU and some of the comics and he loves so many of the characters with a few specifics he currently cosplays Wong and Doctor Strange. To boot he also loves playing Overwatch, Smite and Genshin Impact (probably the 3 games he has the most game time playing) and yes, cosplays from these games are up and coming so stay tuned! So as you can see, films, TV and games are a pretty big part of who he is, but furthering this he also plays competitive Yu-gi-oh! and Magic: the Gathering so much of his free time is spent at his local games store getting in practice for the next big tournament! Finally to round things off, being the huge Star Wars nerd he is, he also spends time training with Silver Sabres who you might have seen make appearances doing shows at some of the major cons, so if you see them be sure to pop along and get yourself booked in for a taster!

Arthur has been cosplaying since 2017 when he first did a closet cosplay as The Punisher for
Middle East Film & Comic Con. Since then, he has cosplayed 16 characters ranging from comic book heroes, supervillains, anti-heroes, pro wrestlers, movie, and video game characters. Some big names in that list include Green Lantern, Spiderman, Thor, John Wick, The Crow, Chris Jericho, Sting, and Sub Zero.

His journey has propelled him to also become a performer at local market events and birthday
parties where he works with children, along with also becoming the ambassador for Fan Expo
with the responsibility of bringing the local community together by arranging mini events and
get-togethers for cosplayers.

He has been a very positive influence in the Vancouver cosplay scene where he began holding movie-cosplay meetups for films such as Spiderman-Now Way Home, The Batman, Doctor Strange: Multiverse of Madness and Thor: Love and Thunder. A format he set up starting with a photoshoot before the film where a photographer would click pictures of all the cosplayers individually and in groups.

It is his enthusiasm and undying love for cosplay and the community which led to his arrival at
Daily Cosplaynet as one of the writers where he will thrive to provide you with the best
content in the form of movie, series, video game, comic con reviews along with interviews of
cosplayers around the world.

Video games have always been a part of her life; in fact, she met her partner on a MUD in 2001.
