What got you into cosplay?
I had always LOVED looking at cosplay costumes online and always wished to do it myself. When I saved some money on the side later in college, I finally was able to realize my long-time dream and jumped into it, and I've been addicted ever since!
What was your first costume and why?
My first costume was Princess Leia's slave costume from Star Wars: The Return of the Jedi. I had always loved the costume, and I knew it was a bold first step into the world of cosplaying, but I took the leap and haven't looked back. Its a great costume for confidence - if you can pull off wearing it, you can wear ANYTHING.
What is your favorite costume and why?
So far, it has been my slave Leia costume. As I said, its a confidence booster. Plus its such a classic costume, and you can use a Virbro Axe as a prop. How cool is that?!
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
SEVERAL. A Commander Shepard from Mass Effect 3, a Big Sister from Bioshock 2, and Samus' armor from Metroid, amongst MANY others.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
They've all been AMAZING. Its hard to pick just ONE. But taking pictures with fans is always great, especially kids - they love to see everyone dress up! I've also gotten to meet interesting people along the way, as well as a few celebrities, such as James O'Barr (Author of The Crow), Sam Witwer (Starkiller/Galen Marek of Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, Doomsday, etc.), Daniel Logan (Young Boba Fett in Star Wars: Episode II), Ray Park (Darth Maul, Toad in X-Men, Snake-Eyes in G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra), and Anthony Daniels (C-3P0 from Star Wars).
Do you participate in masquerades?
I haven't yet... possibly in the future though.
