What got you into cosplay?
Ever since I went to a small convention in New York I've wanted to go to bigger conventions ... and cosplay when I went to them. There were even people dressed up at the small one I went to, and it looked fun..
What was your first costume and why?
My first costume for cosplaying is Seras Victoria (Hellsing)... I've made other costumes before (like Star Wars) but they don't really count towards cosplaying...I don't intend to wear them to any big conventions unless it's a Star Wars Con...
What is your favorite costume and why?
I remade my Seras Victoria and built the Baerlks rifle, both made their debut at ConnectiCon 2009. The Baerlks is the first prop I ever made and I'm pretty happy with the way it came out, except I made it a little smaller than the real scale should be. This rifle has been revamped...No pun intended... Seriously... And it's much closer to scale.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Tell us a little about yourself
I recently graduated from college with an Associate's in Studio Art, that being said I was laid off from my job in the college library, since you have to be a student to work on campus. Now I'm just trying to earn some money by taking shoe commissions & make fleece hats.
I'm an Art Major, and I got into working with cardboard in my sculpture class .. that was one of the materials we used, and I loved it and it's cheap and easily accessible, so now I use it for my prop-making. I also use foamboard & craft foam for details.
My main hobbies right now are cosplaying, I sew, make my own props, and style my own wigs. The only wig I didn't really style on my own was my Maka wig, which I haven't gotten the chance to use yet.
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
Um, I'm also a girl... If anyone on here gets the odd impression that I'm a guy -for whatever reason, if anyone gets that impression, ... I'm a girl. My Roxas and my Schrodinger are CROSSPLAYS. My next CROSSPLAY will be Jacuzzi Splot from Baccano! for MangaNEXT.
