What got you into cosplay?
My love of Star Wars and my brother. He has always been very artistic and made his own Boba Fett and talked me into doing a 'trooper with him, and ever since then I've been into costuming
What was your first costume and why?
Stormtrooper, because chicks dig the armor.
Seriously though, my TK was my first professional quality costume.
What is your favorite costume and why?
Spider-man, followed by Stormtrooper. The TK is a classic and also very recognizable and iconic, it grabs people's attention.
But, I just loving being Spidey, working with kids its just a costume I can have fun in.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Master Chief or Boba Fett would be nice, and a Guyver wouldbe pretty awesome as well.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Proposing to Amy Allen at Mid-Ohio Con
Do you participate in masquerades?
Not with any of my 501st costumes, but I have with Spider-man and Caboose.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Won Eastern Kentucky University's Halloween ball costume contest 2 years in a row. Got second place in the Mid-Ohio Con 2008 costume Contest.
