What got you into cosplay?
Batman and Halloween! My group of friends had decided to be the Batman Rogues Gallery for Halloween, and in doing research into making and finding the costumes I discovered cosplay! I was hooked immediately.
What was your first costume and why?
My first cosplay was Harley Quinn in 2008, though the first costume I made myself was Sally the Seamstress (NMBC) the same year.
What is your favorite costume and why?
Harley Quinn, hands down.
You know, the generic "ever since I was a little girl watching B:TAS I loved her blahblah" XD
She is so much fun to be, and for me the easiest character to slip into. With Harley, I can be loud, wacky, goofy and just fun! I can get around from place to place by skipping!
I love her character, her backstory, her personality, her love, everything about her pre new 52.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Samus Aran is a costume I would LOVE to make. I would love to learn proper armor making and lighting techniques!
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Probably A-kon 20. The whole thing was just fun. I ran around telling corny jokes to people, and hung out with a few really cool Jokers. One in particular was amazing, I was running by to hit up this one booth, and I just heard this loud, perfect Mark Hamill-Joker voice yell out "HARRRLEEEEYYY!!!" and I stopped in my tracks and ran to him. XD
It was a ton of fun being in character with completely random people at the con.
