About Me / Q&A

What got you into cosplay?
I like being creative and had horrible writers block. I can't draw to save my life, but I found that I can actually work pretty decently with costuming materials. So, I pretty much got into it because not only does it give me something to do, but it also gives me a chance to have some of the awesome outfits I've always wanted.
What was your first costume and why?
What I consider my first "real" costume was my custom Sith character, Darth Losku (or Devatha Riln). I'd been talking with the group The Dark Empire at AdventureCon and decided that here was a costume I could finally do. (I'd always been terrified of attempting big costumes.)
What is your favorite costume and why?
So far, my favorite is Kora's V1 armor. Not so much because I put a lot of work into it (because I put a lot more into the V2 kit), but because it's the one I've had the most "omg!" response from kids with. ^_^
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Mmm. A lot of Padme's outfits. I think they're absolutely beautiful, but I'd never be able to pull them off, or make them.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Marching in the D*Con 08 parade in my V1 kit and hearing the kids go "look at the purple mando mommy!"
Do you participate in masquerades?
No. I'm afraid I'd be horrible at it.
Tell us a little about yourself
I'm a graduate from Western Kentucky University, with an Associate's Degree in Arts and Humanities (I was a News/Editorial Journalism major who then switched to Performing Arts, but life issues forced me to change to the associates and graduate early).
My favorite movies(s)
I have a pretty broad taste in movies. :D
