What got you into cosplay?
Always made costumes and props for Halloween and for my dance troupe. Got inspired at Otakuthon 2011 and decided to start putting together a cosplay portfolio.
What was your first costume and why?
My first costume is the Cheshire Cat from Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland. I chose it for several reasons: 1. I love cats. 2. I liked the slightly creepy yet adorable interpretation from the film. 3. A mascot presents a lot of challenges, especially for a furst timer :)
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Shhh... it's a secret to be revealed only at Costume-Con 32 in 2014!
Do you participate in masquerades?
I plan to! Anime North 2012 will be my first.
Tell us a little about yourself
I'm tired of working for other people in a field that doesn't interest me. I'm working on building a portfolio with the eventual goal of starting a home-based craft/sewing business.
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
Being new, I'm also a bit lonely. My friends aren't much into costumes except to wear them onstage (I hang out mostly with Burlesque dancers and drag queens and kings.) If you're in the Montreal area, send me a PM.
