What got you into cosplay?
The beautiful costumes in the Lord of the Rings movies. I didn't know that what I was doing had a name, I just knew that I loved an excuse to take on a new persona.
What was your first costume and why?
Arwen from Lord of the Rings, because she was graceful and elegant and everything my gangly self was not. It looked nothing like her, but I was so proud of it.
What is your favorite costume and why?
Depends. Normally its whatever I'm working on at the moment. I love all my cosplays though.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Tons. My list is constantly growing.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Getting to hang out and be in a photoshoot with some of my cosplay idols. :)
Do you participate in masquerades?
Haven't yet, but I would like to.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Yes, but I have never entered a competition at a convention. I did costume a stage production though, and that won an award for best costuming in our region.
Tell us a little about yourself
I graduated in May 2012 from college with a degree in liberal arts from my local community college. I plan to return to college for Spring of 2014 at West Virginia University for Art History. I don't have my own family, and I work in an office where I have plenty of spare time to work on whatever small projects strike my fancy.
My favorite game(s)
Kingdom Hearts (all of them)
