Hello there. I'm Tyler. Cosplayer, stage actor, gamer, artist, and con goer.

I've been making costumes pretty much my whole life. I'm mainly started making some for Halloween and plays. Then I wanted to look outside of that. One day a friend of suggested trying to go to conventions. This same friend had an art booth for A-kon 2009 in Dallas. I thought I should try since I'm also a gamer and anime fan. I was already done with college at that point and had really else to focus on. I went along to help him out and I came dressed as Travis Touchdown from "No More Heroes", which is how I ended up with my name. That cosplay turned out to be a big hit with people and I've been addicted to going to conventions ever since.

I've been doing 2 to 4 conventions a year between Oklahoma and Texas and making a new cosplay for each one. I have made lots of friends doing this and have had so much fun. I did this to make friends and take a vacation away from myself. And being an actor in stage theatre, I also used this as a way to satisfy my craving to do more acting work. I do consider cosplay to be a form of method acting after all. It has occurred to me that most people aren't aware I've done more than just one cosplay. I do have more tricks up my sleeve. This page is meant to show people what I have done over the past few years and where I'm going. I have recently become burned out from convention jumping though. So I'll be going at a much slower pace. I was thinking of retirement at first, but I still have a few years left in me. So let's see how it plays out.

I'm always interested in meeting new people and doing pair ups at conventions and I am pretty laid back most of the time. I don't claim to be anybody special. I am ego-free, I'm not over-competative, and I never hope to become famous. If you have an interest in what I do, feel free to like and comment. If you want to be critical about my cosplay, go ahead. I do listen to feedback. Most of the time, what you see is what you get from me. Any support I get, no matter how little, is very much appreciated.


Buddies on this site I recommend you give a watch.

Hey guy. 

This is just a quick update. I am one week away from Anime Matsuri. So I am cramming a lot. Also, I was on a podcast hosted by a great friend :icontifaia: 

We basically got together with a few others and talked about our experiences with the competition side of cosplay. Our thoughts along with the pros and cons. What we think should and shouldn't happen.

Check this out if you have the time. We would really appreciate it.…
