What got you into cosplay?
I got interested in costuming after watching the Lord of the Rings for the first time and the urge to re-create costumes and design new ones was only encouraged by the anime I discovered later on.
What was your first costume and why?
My first real costume (by real I mean sewn by me rather than simply thrown together) was Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind. My boyfriend told me that I should go to Otakuthon with him and our mutual friend got me thinking that I should cosplay. I decided to pick a relatively simple costume for a first attempt.
What is your favorite costume and why?
So far my favourite costume is Princess Jasmine. It was quite easy to put together and it was improvised a lot. I am really happy with how it turned out, especially the shoes, OMG the shoes of death (for in the making and in the wearing)! They were really fun to show off though :)
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
As of right now my dream costume to make is not from any movie or anime but rather a musical. I would love to make Lady Galadriel's gown from the Lord of the Rings Musical London! I have no idea how to go about it as it is quite complicated but I think it would be awesome if I could do that!
Tell us a little about yourself
I am currently studying Building Engineering at Concordia University and really enjoying it! If I wasn't in engineering though I would have gone into Costume design! Not only do I like to design things I also love music and art and the outdoors! Not to mention homemade deserts like brownies (mmmm....)!
