Eric is a bit of many things: pirate, photographer, geek, biker, gamer, jewelry maker and master of bad puns. He has worked for Phoenix Comicon every year from 2007 to 2016 and was been a part of the Arizona Renaissance Festival from 2009 to 2013, which is where he picked up the Bald Pirate name. He also chuckles a lot when referring to himself in the third person.
Recently, I had a chance to chat with Florida-based cosplayer Ms Valentine. During our conversation, we talked about how she got into cosplaying, advice she had for aspiring cosplayers, some of her favorite con moments, and what she’s geeking out on these days.
