Last week, I hit 1000 likes on my Facebook page, and I’m celebrating with a comics giveaway.
I’ve had that page for some time now, long before I was a cosplayer. I set it up as a blogger and struggled with what to post. I racked up 100 likes and stalled. Then I started cosplaying. I wondered whether to share my cosplay on the page or whether it should go somewhere else. Would anybody be interested? Gradually, I started sharing. Pictures and stories from con. The more I shared, the more attention it got. I started to work with photographers and began to share the results of shoots.
Since pushing harder to market my cosplay, I’ve had some fantastic adventures. This year, I got to be a cosplay guest for the first time. I joined a radio show. I’m getting approached by photographers, both for cosplay and other styles.
I wanted to say thank you. To celebrate reaching 1000 likes, and to say thank you for making those adventures happen, I’ve launched a giveaway on my Facebook page. Up for grabs is a selection of comics, including some of Rogue’s 2009 solo run and exclusives from Free Comic Book Day. There’s also merch from Firefly and X-Men (more to be added too) and I’ll throw in a signed, personalised print.
If you’d like to get your paws on this lot, head over to my page and follow the instructions on the pinned post.
