What got you into cosplay?
Seeing pictures of people wearing Doctor Who outfits at various cons. I thought that was totally awesome and decided that if I ever made it to a con, I would definitely do that.
What was your first costume and why?
In a way, it was actually Annie Edison from Community for Halloween. I never wear the type of clothes she wears, but I thought it would be really fun to dress up as her. But since that was just a generic outfit, my first real costume was Amy Pond (The Pandorica Opens/Big Bang) because not only is that my favorite episode, but it was an outfit I knew I could feel comfortable in.
What is your favorite costume and why?
Still Amy from The Big Bang because it took months to get all the parts and when I finally put it together and looked down at myself, it was super exciting.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
If I was really skilled, Amy's kissogram outfit. But more realistically, I'd love to make a Donna Noble outfit since she's my favorite companion. Also on the list: completing a Nerd Herd outfit from 'Chuck' and possibly Olivia Dunham from 'Fringe.' Added 10/20/11: I've realized I could cosplay someone from Digimon! So either Sora (S1) or Kari (S2). Haven't decided which yet.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
While chatting with a few Amy's next to the TARDIS at SDCC '11, another girl walked up and asked me if there was a line to take pictures. I looked at her red hair, white shirt, white pants, and brown boots, paused, and went "Another Amy!" She gasped and squealed "YOU RECOGNIZE ME?" Apparently, without the baby, no one could tell that she was A Good Man Goes to War Amy. She said I made her day.
