Techta's Profile Picture
Artist | Hobbyist | Varied
United States
Cosplayer and hobbyist artist, though I DO TAKE COMMISSIONS if you want. I am a student at University of Georgia at the Warnell School of Forestry and Natural Resources as a "Fisheries and Wildlife, Aquatic Sciences Area of Emphasis" major. Kind of a mouthful.

Though I adore fisheries and marine science, my dream is still to work in the film industry. That's how my interest in prop-making and cosplay was born.

My favorite things are Mass Effect, District 9, Transformers, Alien, The Terminator, Farscape, Interstellar, collecting "The Art Of..." books, movie posters, sci-fi guns, fish (plakat bettas), and parrots.

Yeah, parrots. I'm actually really big into parrot rescue. I often volunteer/foster/sponsor parrots in rescues. I have a few of my own, too.

Anyway, contact me with any questions or suggestions!


Wikus van der Merwe 2015 Cosplay at DragonCon by Techta
Wikus van der Merwe 2015 Cosplay at DragonCon
Oh my gosh, DragonCon was SO AMAZING this year. I had a blast, and it was awesome to finally debut the District 9 costume I've been working on since Oct 2014. Response was great and I met some super cool people because of it. Best part was meeting four employees FROM Weta Workshop in New Zealand. I can't wait for DragonCon next year.

Redoing the D9 AMR-B05 by Techta
Redoing the D9 AMR-B05
Needed to do a lot of damage repairs and repainting to be ready for DragonCon 2015. I will be adding all new canisters in the next week or so.
I entered my Wikus cosplay to The RPF's Halloween Costume Contest. You have to sign in to vote, but if you feel like making an account or you already have one, if you like my costume, I'd TOTALLY love if you voted for me! I'll throw in a bribe if you vote for me -- I'll draw you a little sketch for free if you vote :)

(saw a commission you ordered; Techta's Anak by LassieCrumby  )

Thank you! Her species is called "toridian." They are the kind of "main species" of the fictional sci-fi universe I never finish writing for. XD She made her look so sweet :) Which is funny because the toridians are pretty cold and imperialistic. They are both the antagonists and protagonists depending on which story they are in, because it takes place from a different species' perspective. I don't post much, but if you're interested, stay tuned! :)

Very cool! You should finish writing it when you get the chance :O
-Perspective truly can change whether a group is good or bad, it'd be very interesting to read a story that plays around with that.

I'm a fulltime freelance artist, so if you ever want another commission of her or her species, hit me up-I love working on unique alien characters like the Toridian!
