What got you into cosplay?
I have always had a passion for costume design and theater, ever since I was little.
What was your first costume and why?
My first costume was a Renaissance Faire Wench getup. I made it when I was 15 and now my little sister wears it!
What is your favorite costume and why?
My favorite costume is Blind Mag from Repo! The Genetic Opera! I am a professional corsetier, and the Chromaggia costume is EPIC.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
I'd love to make Harley Quinn for myself, but I haven't gotten around to it.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Walking around at cons in my Blind Mag Chromaggia corset and having people coming up to me saying "I love Blind Mag" and giving me hugs. :)
Do you participate in masquerades?
What was your best masquerade experience?
Winning the Femme Fatale Award at WonderCon 2012 -- despite our messed up music queue.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Yes- I received the "Femme Fatale Award" at WonderCon 2012 with my Emma Frost and Dark Phoenix costumes. I have won "Best Costume Designs" at the Vortex Repertory Company in Austin, TX. I won a Simplicity Pattern Co. Contest when I was 16 for a Halloween costume I made.
Tell us a little about yourself
I went to the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles and graduated with a fashion design degree. I now work in costume, cosplay and corset design all over the country.
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
I have been a corset designer for the last four years, making well over 200 corsets in that time. I use only the best materials and my quality is outstanding! Check out my website!
