Hi, my name is Gluxbox! Cosplayer, Animal Crossing Enthusiast, Pokemon Trainer, Kirby Fan, Harvest Moon Pro Farmer, etc!
That’s Glux – pronounced like “ducks” – Box. Or Glux for short. Or G-Box. My code name is a mispronunciation of my last name, and it existed years before Microsoft’s console was even a prototype. My name is NOT a tribute to Xbox in any way. But I do have an Xbox One, so add my gamertag “gluxbox” if you want to be friends.
As a resident of Long Island, NY, I am lucky enough to be in close proximity to the Mecca of Nintendo… aka Nintendo NY! 🙂
This blog was established in December of 2008. Originally this blog was designed to be an online “news source” for my Animal Crossing: City Folk town, Shaolin. I had intended to post my turnip prices twice daily in an effort to make it big in the stalk market. Since that rarely pays off, the blog evolved to just a general ACCF blog, and when that game’s popularity died down, I decided to expand my blogging topics to all of my favorite Nintendo games.
My cosplay journey started with a simple Villager costume and from there expanded to many different Smash Bros./Nintendo characters, including Link, Princess Peach and Zero Suit Samus. Then I branched out and started cosplaying non-Nintendo characters, such as Cat Woman and Stormtrooper. I’m always on the prowl for new ideas. I enjoy taking photos and Photoshopping myself into the character’s environment. Want to see my cosplay catalog? Visit my cosplay photo sharing site: gluxboxcosplay.shutterfly.com
In real life, I work as a graphic designer and marketing coordiator. I also design mailers, postcards and other marketing materials for StreetPass Long Island and StreetPass LA. I’ve designed the logo for Pokemon DS NYC, and business cards for some of my colleagues. I’m also well-versed in the Gaming Convention Panel scene, as I have been a panelist/speaker at PAX East, New York Comic Con, Eternal Con, Winter Con and more.
On top of all that, I am also a bit of a girly-girl and I am often selected to sample and review beauty products and other stuff from a company called Influenster. I post all of my product reviews here on the Glux Blog. If you want to join Influenster, please comment and let me know!
What else do you wanna know about me? Post a comment and I’ll update this page with my answers!
