About Me / Q&A
What got you into cosplay?
I've been into sewing and making costumes for Halloween since I was a little girl. Then one year I went to my first anime convention and discovered the cosplay community. I immediately started making costumes based off of my favorite characters and have been going to as many conventions as I can!
What was your first costume and why?
My first official cosplay costume was the Major from Ghost in the Shell. I was obsessed with the show at the time and knew my first cosplay had to be her! I love the cool leather outfits she wears.
What is your favorite costume and why?
My favorite so far is Lydia from Skyrim. Not only do we share names, but the whole outfit took me months to complete, not to mention insane effort and lots of money. ;) I think it turned out really well and everyone has been very impressed by it!
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
The Sarah ballgown! I think about it every time convention-time comes around. I never end up doing it though because everybody else does it all the time! I also have no place in my apartment to store such a thing. ;) With the perfect conditions though, I'd like to go for it and get a hold of high quality reference photos so I can attempt to replicate it perfectly.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
The costume contest at Dragon*Con '12 was amazing for me because another contestant had an exquisite version of a costume from my favorite game (Skyrim). I got to hear the construction process and was totally inspired, not to mention drooling over it the entire time. :-P
Do you participate in masquerades?
Nope! I like to focus on construction over performance. And you don't want to see me dance, trust me.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Best in Show Journeyman at AWA 2012, and Best Master at Momocon 2013 (craftsmanship contest)
Tell us a little about yourself
I'm a web developer with a passion for crafting! I've always been super crafty: drawing, painting, writing, making clothes and costumes, making jewelry, etc. I also play the flute semi-professionally.
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
I love kitties! Starbuck and Spot are the best kittehs evar!
