What got you into cosplay?
My friend. I was planning my cosplay for Halloween, but then I remembered my friend was going to Anime North and I wanted to check it out for myself.
What was your first costume and why?
Alexis Rhodes. I really liked her outfit, so I finally decided to dress as her.
What is your favorite costume and why?
Right now, I don't have many costumes because I'm new to this sort of thing. But after stumbling upon some photos of live action Scarlet Witch, I immediately went to my wardrobe to pick some of the pieces for the outfit since I already had some. She's one of the X-Men, and they're my favourite superheroes and I kinda surprised myself on choosing her. I knew about her before and read about her and it surprised me that I ended up choosing her. I like the look they chose for the live action version so I wanted to see if I could put it together myself.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Bucky as the Winter Soldier, the live action version. I knew about Bucky being Captain America's sidekick and him becoming the Winter Soldier in the comics before Captain America 2 came out, but after seeing the movie, I was so excited and I couldn't contain myself. I thought to myself, 'Yes, I want to be that. So cool.'
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
I really liked how a lot of people came up to me and told me how they loved my Alexis Rhodes cosplay. Some took photos, and I got really nice comments from people. So it was nice for the first time doing this kinda thing, that people liked it.
Do you participate in masquerades?
I don't. It sounds fun though. Maybe sometime i'll bring up the courage to take part in one.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
None so far.
Tell us a little about yourself
I love music; and I have a new found interest in the guitar, although I don't play it right now. I love hockey, baseball, traveling, going shopping, movies and I love to read.
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
I can be a bit shy at times, but once I get to know people I'm really nice and friendly.
