What got you into cosplay?
The Long Beach Comicon.
What was your first costume and why?
I made a version of the POW escape Cap costume for Halloween and the Long Beach comicon. I wanted to make a comic based Captain America costume but had no experience in costuming, so I went with something that fit my skill set.
What is your favorite costume and why?
I am currently working on a brubaker style WW2 cap costume and a Commander Steve Rogers costume. We'll see which one I like best after finishing.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
There are a few costumes I am working on, no real dream costume although I would very much love to make Steve's photonic shield!
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
I've only been to a few cons but each one has been pretty memorable. Being photographed every 5 minutes is pretty cool. Oh and at the last one I was called both the best captain america and the cutest, so that was cool.
