Matt Aucoin

Matt had his first introduction to cosplaying at Hal-con in 2011 where he found himself both amazed and inspired by the creativity and freedom of expression he saw in the community. The very next year he began plans for his very own full costume. Cosplaying has not only become a real true passion for Matt, but a way to connect and feel a sense of belonging among like-minded creative minds. Matt thoroughly enjoys the creative process of bringing to life characters that have resonated with him making the next costume, suit of armor, prop or weapon always just around the corner.
