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)... that was the first anime I watched that I really connected with a character and I wanted to ake her outfit & wear it to a convention.
What is your favorite costume and why?
As of 2015 my favorite cosplay is Korra. I made ..like 8 of her outfits at this point. I love her character & her outfits are extremely comfortable.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Something with armor.. Right now I'm looking at Lexa from the 100.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
MetroCon 2013. I met Janet Varney (voice of Korra in LoK).
Tell us a little about yourself
I graduated from college with an Associate's in Studio Art in 2011, 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 plushie commissions and selling plushies through Etsy.
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?
I just made a long-awaited move out to Kansas back in the end of November.
