What got you into cosplay?
I had just graduated high school, and struggled to make new friends. I found an online webcomic that I loved, and went browsing the forums to realize that the creator would be at Anime Expo. Everyone was cosplaying- and so I wanted to be part of the fun too!
What was your first costume and why?
My first costume was Hanna from Hanna is Not a Boy's Name because it was simple and I really connected with Hanna. I had never dressed up outside of Halloween, nor did I know any cosplayers- I went to AX, my first con, without any friends and never having known anything about the cosplay or convention community.
What is your favorite costume and why?
My favorite costume to date is Fairy Godmother from the 1950's Disney animated classic Cinderella. It just makes me feel magical! It's an iconic character that everyone recognizes, and the little ones who attend love to talk to me.
