What got you into cosplay?
I was inspired to cosplay 5 years ago by the amazing Adella. I have since planned out an unimaginable number of costumes and only recently have I actually been able to begin work on them. It seems like such a long time to wait but I am quite thankful for it- I have been able to plan cosplays to the point of perfection and have also learned so much in that time. I have been sewing for years and feel I have now gained enough experience to actually begin costuming. : )
What was your first costume and why?
My first costume was Briar Rose from Sleeping Beauty. I suppose I chose it because I had the idea to knit her shawl rather than make it with fabric so I was pretty excited to make that. lol Then the rest of it just kind of came together over the year. Honestly, though, the shawl is about the only thing that doesn't need to be remade!
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
There are so many! I think a big one would be Samus' Varia Suit; it's so far out of my skill set right now, but I hope to be able to make it one day! Pretty much anything that's armor-heavy/not primarily made of fabric could be considered a dream costume. haha
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
My Fionna won Best Costume at a Halloween party in 2012! :P
