SamSecrets (Samantha Marais)

Geek, Videographer,
Johannesburg, South Africa

Magic and Mysteries, Superheroes, Robots and Monsters - that's what SamSecrets is about! :)

I LOVE Cosplaying, because I like building, sewing and shaping costumes from scratch! I've been working in the film industry for over 10 years, and making cosplay videos has really been amazing because I get to use all my film knowledge - from directing and shooting to editing!

So my blog is about cosplay; comic books; movies; TV shows, Anime and Manga; games; tech; tea and everything else I find geeky!! I caught the falling star!!! :) ♥
Samsecrets is a Videographer, Cosplayer and all round Geek from Johannesburg, South Africa. She attended AFDA (The South African School of Motion Picture Medium and Live Performance), graduating in 2003. She has worked on a variety of videos such as Documentaries, Corporates and Commercials.
Her interest in cosplay started when she was living in London and attended the 2007 ‘Star Wars Celebration’ event. This gradually became an obsession, and in 2013, she made her first cosplay - Cassie Hack (Hack/Slash Comic). Since then, she has made over 18 costumes in the genres of anime/manga, comic books, TV Shows and Movies. She is a regular to the competition scene and has been a Cosplay Competition judge for Smallville Comics Cosplay Contest in 2015 and Geekfest 2016 Cosplay Contest.
