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!


Live Below The Line 2015

Journal Entry: Sun May 10, 2015, 1:25 PM

Hey guys!

I'm doing "Live Below the Line" again this year and I was wondering if any of you would be willing to donate?
Live Below The Line is a challenge for charity in which you live off £1 a day for all food and drink, for 5 days in a row (so £5 for 5 days!) All of the money donated is going towards UNICEF, and it'd mean a lot to me if you could donate, or even just share this around!

I've also made some vlogs for each day which you can also check out if you want to:…

You can donate here:…

Thank you all so much!
Have a great day!
