Ian's journey in costuming started around 10 years ago when he discovered chainmail; from that everything evolved. He worked at a chainmail company for a number of years and even had the chance to work on pieces for film and art projects. This really enabled him to understand the intricacies of armour patterns and how to construct costumes and accessories. In 2014 he made his entry into the world of cosplay. He wanted an Iron Man suit of my own, so he built one. He's been hooked ever since, and he loves creating costumes from the various fandoms he has from comics, movies, video games, and anime. Cosplay has been a great creative outlet for Ian, he finds it helps to center him and enhances his ability to focus. He eventually started to get involved with the competitive aspect of cosplay and has competed in a few different contests, receiving Journeyman and Master’s level awards along the way. Attending charity events has been a great way for him to use his hobby to give back to the community, usually by providing a smile, high five, or picture where needed. This has become one of the most rewarding aspects of cosplay in his experience. He believes that cosplay is for everyone; being a positive role model by encouraging inclusivity in cosplay, as well as transferring knowledge and skills gained for those coming into the craft, is really important in order to build a bigger, better, and more positive cosplay community. You can find more of his work at The Alchemist’s Armoury on Facebook.
