About Me / Q&A

What got you into cosplay?
I've worked a local Halloween event with my husband every October since 2005, and getting to dress up and be someone else for a month has been such a blast that we figured it might be something fun to do outside of work, too. Attending our first convention (Long Beach Comic Con '09) and seeing all the cool costumes was what made us "pull the trigger" and decide to try cosplaying for ourselves.
What was your first costume and why?
Abbey Chase from J. Scott Campbell's "Danger Girl"! I love "Danger Girl" and I always said that if I was going to cosplay, I'd dress as Abbey. When my husband and I finally decided to take the plunge, there was no question as to what my first costume would be!
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Although it hasn't won any awards, photos of my Abbey Chase costume (version 2.0) were published in the "Danger Girl: The Deluxe Edition" hardcover collection by J. Scott Campbell in 2010. Additionally, my Jess Jennings costume won the first-ever "Lovely Ladies of J. Scott Campbell" costume contest at Dragon*Con 2010. First prize was a sketch of me as Jess Jennings, drawn by J. Scott Campbell himself!
My favorite game(s)
"Endless Ocean," the "Ecco the Dolphin" series, "Aquanaut's Holiday: Hidden Memories," pretty much anything Mario-related, "Conan," and any "Mortal Kombat" game that allows me to play as Sonya.
