"No retreat, no surrender; that is Spartan law. By Spartan law we will stand and fight.. and die." . . . Big changes are taking place as @nifty_smithy work to take our cosplay careers further. We are currently working on a website aimed at encapsulating the essence of who we are as artists and cosplayer, and collectively as Psyfty Cosplay. Stay attentive for more updates on our site as we prepare to go live! . .

I can't believe it's already been a week since the release of Odyssey! I still need to get my hands on my copy, but I'm absolutely dying to delve into its rich storyline and cast of characters. . . Yesterday one of my posts went viral, and I was completely overwhelmed by the support that came flooding in as a response to that ❀️ I cannot believe I have so many people that are interested in what I do and what I make, so every single like, comment and message I received has been held close to my heart; I will be forever grateful for them. . . I'll be planning to continue work on Kassandra over the next few months, aiming to get her as screen-accurate as possible. This meaning I'll be weathering every component of the cosplay, I'll be completing her weaponry, building her quiver as well as constructing the helmet (yikes). . When I'm eventually happy with the results of the cosplay, I'd be keen to get some photos done at a location alongside my Alexios (@nifty_smithy ); so if anyone is keen to shoot or knows of any appropriate locations in the Johannesburg/Pretoria region, please don't be afraid to hit me up!
I've been cosplaying for about 3 years now. In that time I have created roughly 9 cosplays, most of which have never seen the light of day. I taught myself how to sew, how to craft and how to smith with EVA foam; and am proud to say that I want to pursue the title of a skilled foamsmith. I have made 2 suits of armour in this time, both taught me a range of skills that I wouldn't have obtained otherwise; and to this day I am still grateful for the opportunities that those suits have given me in terms of my cosplay career. . . In my 3rd year of cosplay I was hired by a company that I had only ever dreamed about, to represent a character that embodied my dream cosplay. I still can't wrap my head around that. Yet, in all those 3 years I never had someone to share my dreams and my abilities with. Conventions and builds seemed dull to me, despite the mountain of support from friends. . . In my 3rd year of cosplay I met someone who changed my life forever, he contacted me about my plans for my Kassandra build and was so earnest in his interest about this hobby of mine. Months went by and my love grew for this incredible young man, I had never believed in soulmates or love at first sight, but this man changed everything for me. . As time went on, we took on the immense challenge of creating an Alexios cosplay in 6 days to compliment my Kassandra for the rAge Expo and for @ubisoft themselves. . . In the 3 years I had cosplayed, I had never entered a single competition. I was scared, I doubted my skills and abilities immensely. But thanks to Joel, the two of us entered and gave each other the support and confidence needed. The two of us placed in our first comp, something that was so foreign and scary turned out to yield such abundance; leading me to believe that you should have faith in your abilities. . . The time we spent finishing my Kassandra and building his Alexios was extremely stressful, and we ran on only a handful of hours of sleep a day. It was a task that either makes or breaks a relationship. Our relationship was in the fire of the forge, yet we emerged stronger and ready for battle. I love you Joel ❀️
Who will you choose? Kassandra or Alexios? Who will you fight for? Greece or Sparta? . . . . This photo was taken almost directly after we received the judging results for our entries into the rAge Expo's 2018 Cosplay Competition. I'm beyond humbled to have received First place within the Assassins Creed Division; whereas my Alexios (@nifty_smithy ) was able to nab Second place after me, as well as placing Second in the overall Armour Division! . . I also wanted to thank @megaromgames for being there to document the detailing and wearing of our cosplays, as well as for looking after us so brilliantly throughout the weekend. It was an honour and a pleasure to have been able to work with their team. . . . . . . . #assassinscreed #assassinscreedodyssey #acodyssey #assassinscreedodysseycosplay #odyssey #odysseycosplay #assassinscreedcosplay #accosplay #kassandra #alexios #kassandracosplay #alexioscosplay #kassandraodyssey #alexiosodyssey #greece #sparta #armorbuild #rage #rage2018 #rageexpo2018 #ragecosplay #rageexpocosplay #ragecosplay2018 #megarom #ubisoft #acodysseyrage #cosplay #cosplayersofinstagram #cosplayer #armorbuild #cosplaycouple
This weekend I had the honour and privilege of working with @megaromgames and @ubisoft to launch and promote Assassins Creed: Odyssey within South Africa at the @rage_expo , as their official Kassandra for the country. . . . I've been a fan of the Assassin's Creed games for many, many years; so being able to work with a company as prestigious as Ubisoft was a lifelong dream of mine fulfilled. Being of Mediterranean decent and fascinated with Ancient Greece itself, I absolutely adored being able to portray a strong warrior such as Kassandra; and I'm completely blown away by the depth of her character and the inclusion of her as the main protagonist. From what I got to experience at the rAge Expo, the game itself is beautifully crafted and carries an incredible amount of depth to it. . . . And finally, I just wanted to thank my Alexios (@nifty_smithy ) for being such an incredible pillar of strength throughout the stressful week prior as we both raced to finalize our cosplays. Joel, I love you immensely and I can't tell you how appreciative I am to have you in my life and by my side in these crazy adventures ❀️ . . . . . . #AssassinsCreed #AssassinsCreedOdyssey #Kassandra #kassandraassassinscreedodyssey #Alexios #acodyssey #ubisoft #kassandracosplay #cosplay #rAge #rAge2018 #rageexpo2018cosplay #rAgeExpo2018 #cosplay #megarom #ACOdysseyrage #SAKassandra

I can confirm, the Tardis is definitely bigger on the inside. . . To be honest, I think Diana wouldn't even be phased by taking a trip in the Tardis with the Doctor; after all, she's ended up in stranger places. . . . . . . . . . . .

She is beauty, she is grace, she will punch you in the face . . . Now that Comic Con is over, I've been focusing on my next cosplay and crunching hard to get it done in time for rAge 2018. Most people will know that I'm currently building Kassandra in time for the release of Assassin's Creed Odyssey. The costume has proved difficult in areas, but it's incredible to see how much my foamsmithing skills have improved following my Wonder Woman build. I'll be posting Kassandra progress in my story, and then keeping them in one of the highlights that you can find on my profile! . . . . . . πŸ“Έ: @criticalhitnet . .

Oh, I don't think you've ever known a woman like me. . . . I had the privilege of having my Wonder Woman showcased in @redbull 's 'Best Cosplays of Comic Con Africa' article; I am so incredibly humbled and excited by the prosperity that has started to bloom from the hard work I've put into this cosplay πŸ™ŒπŸ» . . . . . . . . πŸ“Έ: @byjono . .

"Within every woman is a Wonder Woman. Each woman is a miracle of power and creative expression. Each woman knows that truth is paramount for stability. Each woman is programmed to do what she feels she needs to do, not necessarily what she is told. Each woman wants to walk into places that she is not allowed. Each woman has her own mind and heart that guides her actions. Each woman has the power to stand and face the corruption of war. Being a woman does not mean that you have to look and act a certain way. You cannot defend and protect against war if you are not trained in the arts of conflict. You cannot be a defender of truth if you do not know your own moral code." -Suzanne Wagner . . . . I would apologize for the relentless Wonder Woman spam from Comic Con Africa; except for the fact that I'm not sorry. This last weekend I truly felt at home in this suit of armour that I had built with determination and love, I was finally able to role play as a fictional warrior who means so much to women and young girls alike. . Growing up I didn't have a figure like the Wonder Woman we know today, I wasn't presented with a fierce, intelligent and servant-hearted superhero to look up to and say "wow, I want to be her one day". Comic Con was exceptional for me because of the interaction I was able to have with children of all ages, I was able to represent the physical embodiment of a character that they loved, and encourage them to live and love fiercely in every area of life. Knowing that I can be that superhero to children is why I'm so passionate about what I do. I can't wait to see what the future has in store for me. . . . . . . . . . .

With the first Comic Con Africa having drawn to a close, I would just like to thank everyone for the overwhelming love and support I received while wearing my Wonder Woman this weekend. . This cosplay took me over a year to make, and served as a source of therapy in my times of darkness; so to see the profound impact that it has made on people has really left me in tears and awe. I took to heart every single compliment and kind action that was shown to me, and I will be forever blown away by the magnitude of love that I experienced. . Thank you all for continuing to motivate me to be the warrior I know I am, and thank you for joining me on this journey. Much love, Dani (South African Wonder Woman) . . . .
