DeviantArtist Questionnaire

Journal Entry: Fri Aug 7, 2015, 6:23 AM

  1. How long have you been on DeviantArt? - 7 years... almost 8 years! That's actually kind of scary!

  2. What does your username mean? - It's just my name. Not very creative, I know. It used to be laurenpenman-dbz but then I changed it so it would be easier for me as a cosplayer rather than an artist. One day I will think of a better username, I swear!

  3. Describe yourself in three words. - Hard-working, Determined, Quiet.

  4. Are you left or right handed? - Right-handed.

  5. What was your first deviation? - It has been long deleted sadly, but the oldest deviation I have is this one: He's There, Inside My Mind by laurenpenman

  6. What is your favourite type of art to create? - Cosplay, and photography. I love creating cosplays.

  7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be? - Digital art, definitely. One of these days I will produce something that looks good!

  8. What was your first favourite? - My first favourite is: Battle in the Trees by twinfools by twinfools, one of my favourite cosplayers!!

  9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most? - Cosplays, and fan-art usually!

  10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist? - So many! TechnoRanma Glay twinfools VandorWolf Muirin007 I love them all, and so many more!

  11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be? - I would love to meet TechnoRanma & Glay, also Twin & Nova! And Muirin. All of them!

  12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life? - I have met a lot of really good friends on here! Also, dA is how I got into cosplay! I saw deviations by TechnoRanma and Glay and I was instantly inspired to join in!

  13. What are your preferred tools to create art? - Camera, photoshop, paper and pencils...?

  14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art? - I don't have an exact place. Ideas come to me when I am out and about, or travelling, and I will write them down. Whether it be a cosplay idea, photo idea, art idea, etc. I still have many ideas written down from 7 years ago!

  15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory? - The community! I love talking with other members and making friends. I also feel incredible thankful to everyone who has watched me over the past 7 years, everyone who has faved a deviation, or commented on something. Thank you all! My favourite memory would be how awesome the dA community used to be before tumblr and facebook took over. Those were the days!

Update: cosplay and conventions

Hey guys! How are you all? Has anyone been watching Dragon Ball Super? I have, and I am loving it!


It's summer time, so I have more time than usual to work on cosplays. Right now I am working on Vegeta from DragonBall Z, the Saiyan Saga version with the scouter and armour. I'm really looking forward to finally doing a proper DBZ cosplay! I'm making the armour myself so I'm hoping it will all work out okay.  I'm aiming to get this cosplay done by the middle of August!

I am also working on Nux from Mad Max: Fury Road. I decided to give myself a challenge with this cosplay, as it involves a lot of make-up and some SFX make-up. I've finished a basic version of Nux (I recently uploaded a deviation of it), but I have some more details to add such as: weathering on the jacket and the trousers, a thicker belt, pouches, the silver spray, goggles, and the wheel!

I am also working on Tidus from Final Fantasy X, and Bulma from DBZ. Once these 4 are done, I'll be working on the Terminator and then I'll be going back to a few cosplays I've been working on for a while now and still haven't finished, such as Erik from Phantom of the Opera, Len from Vocaloid and a bunch of k-pop cosplays. Stay tuned!


I will definitely be at Film and Comic Con Glasgow (formerly known as Collectormania Glasgow) in August, and MCM Scotland Expo in September.
I may be at MCM London Expo in October. For MCM Scotland Expo I will be Vegeta and Tidus, and for Film and Comic Con Glasgow and I will be Nux, and maybe Vegeta. Hoping to attend more cons next year for sure!
