Charles Poynter of Chaks Productions has been cosplaying since 2014.
Inspired by the work of others, he created Emmet from the LEGO movie for Dallas Comic Con that same year and took home the award for Best Craftsmanship. Since then, he has become a familiar face at numerous conventions and charity events across north Texas.
Featuring a unique cast of cosplay characters, Charles pushes himself with each creation, trying to capture every last detail of each character he portrays, using a wide array of mediums ranging from 3D printing to prosthetic appliances.
A strong proponent of ''cosplay without discrimination'', he encourages cosplayers to costume up, have fun and show their support for the hobby and others who participate in it.
