What got you into cosplay?
My Gramma made me a Sailor Moon outfit when I was 6, and I was always wanting to be characters from games and movies. I really got into the cosplay scene when I was already in high school and I'd seen pictures on the internet. It looked like fun, and I haven't looked back since!
What was your first costume and why?
My first costume was Marlene from Final Fantasy Advent Children, simply because she was a simple outfit to figure out and was a great option for a first try.
What is your favorite costume and why?
I don't think I have an absolute favorite yet, I love all of my costumes after I've created them. . .Even if I want to tear them apart while I'm working on them sometimes! :P
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
I'm currently working towards my dream cosplay of Beetle Ball Thumbelina, from Don Bluth's Thumbelina! Hopefully I'll have her done by May 2015!
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Someone liked my Skyward Sword outfit so much, they gave me a keychain! :) It's on my keys to this day!
Do you participate in masquerades?
I joined a cosplay contest at ALBW Launch Event in Toronto.
I participated in my first convention masquerade at Anime North 2014, and I plan to enter again!
What was your best masquerade experience?
I was approached by a few members of Nintendo Canada who commented on my Princess Zelda (LBW) cosplay, plus a few of the staff were really excited about my cosplay which was awesome.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
I was one of 6 finalists for the cosplay giveaway at Canadian Celebration | Événement canadien : The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds and I did win a digital copy of the game!
Tell us a little about yourself
I work as a costume consultant from August to November at Value Village, and I love my job even more while that's going on!
Nothing is better than helping lads and ladies put together the costume they want. I meet a lot of cosplayers there too, and it's great to chat about cosplay and conventions with them.
