Oh hi there, I’m Michael Hamm! I am a geek, model, Cosplayer, and social media personality with an addiction to comics, cats, chips and possibly alliteration. To be honest, I’m not very good at talking about myself so I’ll just answer a few important questions!
How Did You Get into Cosplay?
Spending my entire life surrounded and obsessed with comic books, cartoons, and action figures hasn’t always been a great experience. Throughout high school, I always felt ashamed of my interest in geek culture. The things that I liked as a 10-year-old boy were no longer cool. Cartoons were for “babies”, comics were for “nerds”, action figures were “dolls”, and wanting to dress up in costume on any day other than Halloween was “weird” and “gay”. l was always excitedly, and impatiently waiting for Halloween because it was the one time a year I could dress as one of my favorite characters without any feelings of shame. It wasn’t until I attended my first Comic Book Convention in Toronto and experienced “Cosplay” that I finally realized the only thing I had to be ashamed of was the fact that I spent so many years denying who I was and what I loved doing.
How Did You Become a Social Media Personality?
Well coincidentally, that all started with Cosplay as well. After my first convention I promised myself that I would do cosplay at the next convention I went to and surprise, surprise, I didn’t. I was too anxious and overwhelmed with fear of being made fun of or having people look at me. After two years of lying to myself, and with the support of my friends and family, I built a Robin costume that would later go slightly (very slightly) viral. I was humbled and overwhelmed by all the friend request so I decided to start a fan page. Eventually, I realized that although people were interested in my cosplay, they were also interested in my life, my cats, my modeling, my acting, my opinions, and so much more. What was originally meant to be a cosplay page became my platform to introduce the world to who Michael Hamm really was, and I couldn’t be more grateful to all the amazing people who allow me to do that and follow along.
I Don’t Have Time to Read Your Sob Story, Just Tell Us What You Want From Us!
Geez, tough imaginary crowd, I made up. Look, to be completely honest, I decided to start this Patreon because I need your help. I have a longing to be creative and currently, I just don’t have the mean to do so. I want to keep creating bigger and better cosplays, I want to start shooting on locations, I want to start making youtube videos, fitness vlogs, live streams, and much more. Basically, I just want to create the content you have come to love seeing and that I have come to love making; just on a bigger, better, and more frequent scale. Additionally, I love giving back to you guys and this is a wonderful way to go about that! Who doesn’t love a little mutual gratification? I simply can’t tell you all how much this would mean to me and I hope we can work together to make something special!
