There’s something stunning about photography – capturing moments in time and preserving them for everyone to enjoy. There’s also something to be said about the beauty of the human form as well. Whether it be a candid photo (my personal favourite) or a carefully crafted and posed photo, photos can give you not only insight into another world but also fill you with emotion.
I tend to follow random people from Hamilton on Instagram and other social media. Whether I’ve come across their profiles through comments on Twitter, seen them shared thru an Instagram story, or if I know them in person I’ve filled my timelines with these Hamiltonians. Some of them are aspiring models and others are just beautiful people inside and out.
I’ve decided to feature them.
The next person I’ve decided to feature is Heather Starsailor.
From Hamilton she lists herself as a Toronto-ish cosplayer and has been cosplaying for more than a decade. An accomplished seamstress, Heather has finely crafted and put together many amazing costumes based on video games, television, movies, and fantasy. She has an affinity for creating armor and prop making.
She can be seen regularly at conventions in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area as well as international events. In fact the first time I encountered Heather was at the Anime North convention in Toronto back in 2015 when she dressed as Ballgown Venusaur.
Take a look at some of this talented artist’s beautiful costume creations and cosplay photos and don’t forget to follow her on social media for more. You can also purchase prints of some of her photos as well on her StorEnvy site.
