What got you into cosplay?
It started when I took my first home econ. class in 8th grade. My uncle first got me interested in costumes when he was hosting a Star Wars movie viewing event at his house that was costume optional. I said "Hey I know how to sew now, so I'm going to make Obi-Wan!" Low and behold how far I've come since then!
What was your first costume and why?
Young Obi-Wan Kenobi from Star Wars Episode 1. Because of reasons, probably mentioned in above statement ;P
What is your favorite costume and why?
The Joker, because I feel I can portray him excruciatingly well, both in looks and in manorisms!
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
I think I've accomplished everything I've wanted to replicate so far... but who knows what the future holds!
Do you participate in masquerades?
I used to, but it really eats up a whole Saturday of a con... so not anymore. Now I just have fun!
What was your best masquerade experience?
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Sure thing, about 11 actually, but for much older costumes.
Tell us a little about yourself
I attend Columbia College Chicago for Fashion design. My main aspiration is to become a costume designer for sci-fi film and television series. Most things I have learned about costume making have either come from a class in school, mixed with trial and error, or youtube.
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
if you want to know how to do anything with costumes, consult google and youtube. You WILL find it!
