What got you into cosplay?
Purely by accident.
Randomly decided to make a Daft Punk helmet for reasons I really don’t remember. Since I started at a random time I finished months away from Halloween. I was impatiently waiting while Oct 31st took its sweet time when my friend Alex suggested “Hey, since it’s nearby, we should go to Wonder Con.” I joked “Sure, I’ll wear my Daft Punk Costume so I’ll blend in better. “ The idea sounded less ridiculous outside my head and I was looking for an excuse to wear the damn thing, and so….
What was your first costume and why?
Good Ole Guy-Man Daft Punk.
For the life of me I have no idea why. I'm sure I had good, logical reasons but It seems I just decided one afternoon "Hey, I think I'll make a replica Daft Punk Helmet!"
What is your favorite costume and why?
All the ones that are done. Cause they don't need any more of my time or money.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Don't know if I'd call it a "dream" but I really want to do a Livewires group costume. Is gots Cornfed to a T and a friend who could be Ben Grimm in black babydoll lace. Problem is I'm all out of Aniston-haired cyber-booty, flesh eating stem cells, and monosyllabic Jamaicans. If anyone’s got any extras, holla at me.
Do you participate in masquerades?
Na, not really. Its really cool to hang around backstage, talk construction and see the costumes come together... but I'm a maker not an actor so I don't have much love for being on stage.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Sure, little tiny ones from even tinier events. Honestly, I prefer shooting the $h*t about costumes, props and construction over winning Trophies.
Tell us a little about yourself
My hobbies are my full time job and my job is just something I do in my free time.
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
In the real world....
