In this episode of Cosplay Connection, I got the opportunity to sit down with Lonstermash to get his cosplay origin story and what he has been up to since he started cosplaying.
I first saw Lonstermash at this years D23 Expo in Anaheim, CA. He was attracting quite a bit of attention with is Logan/Gaston Mash-Up or LOGON as he calls it. I mean that is pretty amazing and quite the attention grabber. And just damn cool and imaginative.
I officially met Lonstermash at NerdCon 2015 in Escondido, CA. He was cosplaying as Logan that day. His claws are spectacular and it is just uncanny how much he resembles Hugh Jackman’s Logan “Wolverine.” And I could not resist taking a photo of him and later reaching out for the above interview.
Post-interview, Lonstermash told me that some of his cosplays require some very impressive make-up work and he does it all himself. He said it takes him several hours to make the make-up look perfect and it is beyond extraordinary. I mean it LOOKS REAL!!!!! The man is seriously talented. Also the muscles… all him. Just saying.
Also check out Agents of Cosplay on Facebook, which is a community that Lonstermash is a part of. Agents of Cosplay had a booth this past weekend at Stan Lee’s Comikaze, which gave a make-up demo for Halloween.
Lonstermash is also involved with a non-profit organization called Kids Can Cosplay, check out their Facebook page for more info about this organization and how you can get involved. Kids Can Cosplay is also hosting a Christmas Toy Giveaway on December 19th in Anaheim, CA. For more information on this event please check out their Facebook Event page.
Lastly, I just want to thank Lonstermash once again for taking the time to sit down and chat with me about all his amazing cosplays. It was a pleasure getting to chat with you and catching up this past weekend at Stan Lee’s Comikaze.
