Cosplay Spotlight: Brian Gregory

Welcome Brian Gregory (aka Stranger Than Fiction Cosplay) to our COSPLAY SPOTLIGHT!!!!!

Why do you cosplay?

I do It because I love the characters. Comic Books, Manga & Japanese Tokusatsu  have all played a valuable part in making me the man I am. My Father passed when I was 15 and looking up to heroes,  kept me on the straight and narrow.

What was your first cosplay?

My first cosplay was Salim From Army Of Two at Free Comic Book Day 05/2010 Atomic City Comics Philadelphia,Pa.

Do you make your own cosplay costumes, if so, which ones, and how long does an average costume take to make?

No I don’t make my own costumes, however, I do design the look. Heroesintights, Lawson’s Fabric, Comic Props, League Of Heroes, John Clark, James Panetta, Eric “The Smoke” Moran, and Matthew Procaccini have all been instrumental in bringing my cosplays to life.

What is your favorite character to play?

My favorite character is Dr. Strange.

Amongst animation, comics, movies, or video games, what is your biggest inspiration for cosplay?

The Comics are my biggest inspiration.

Have you ever made any mistakes that you’d warn a first timer about?

Yes i have made some mistakes like The first time I wore Batman at Wizard World2010, it was 89 degrees and very humid with a bright sun. I chose to wear my costume coming out of the hotel in full gear with the cowl on- I was roasting inside. I went into the bathroom to remove the cowl and sweat poured out.

Are there certain characters that are easier to play than others?

Yes there are certain cosplays that are easier one that  comes to mind is Duke Togo aka Golgo 13 it’s mostly  a suit, little make-up and weapons.
