Yooooo, so I always try to participate in 28 Days of Black Cosplay (even tho it should be everyday) and I found some really amazing cosplayers during February that I am super happy to be following thanks to a very dedicated Instagrammer that compiled a huuuuuge list of a few hundred Black cosplayers that we were able to peruse and be able to share their amazing work. A.Gent.Simmons was actually one of the super awesome cosplayers I found off that list and he does A+ work not only with cosplay, but with his IG TV food channel as well! Definitely check him out and give him a follow!

How long have you been cosplaying?
What got you into Cosplay?
I wanted to go big for Halloween one year, so I got a Spider-Man suit. I love the character, and at the time, I had only really heard of cosplay through a couple of friends. Fast forward a month or two and the local hockey team was sponsoring a superhero night; of course, I had to dress up! At the game, I met up with some local cosplayers, and the rest is history.
Favourite Costume? Was it bought or made?
Nightwing! (it has pockets!) I wear a lot of spandex, so being able to carry stuff around is a treat! Some parts were made, some were bought!
What are your goals as a cosplayer?
Art is all about evolution. Not only that, but growth! I always want to try new things and to test my own boundaries. I hope to continue to better myself as a maker, and one day be able to make full costumes
Which Cosplayer inspired you to cosplay?
Oh man, the list could go on! My friends from the SC Upstate Heroes are a huge inspiration, as well as many other makers that I've watched videos of, seen posts of, and had the pleasure of working with!
501st Legion is goals! I'll be a stormtrooper one day!
Favourite Skill of Cosplay? (Wig work, sewing, armor, etc)
