What got you into cosplay?
I've always enjoyed making Halloween costumes. I love anime, comic books, and movies. Why not take the two and put them together? It's so much fun to try and duplicate the characters and become them to the best of your ability.
What was your first costume and why?
I chose to do a female version of the character Jacob from one of my all time favorite movies "Ink". While no one recognized who I was supposed to be at the 2011 New York Comic Con, I'm so proud of that costume! It was my first attempt at dressing up as a pre-existing character and I gave it my all.
What is your favorite costume and why?
I've only officially done one costume, so my favorite is my first, Jacob from the movie "Ink".
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
I have a couple, and I'm determined to do them all eventually! Gambit and X23 of the Marvel X-Men Universe, Graverobber from Repo! (going to try to do this one for NYCC 2012), Eric Draven from The Crow, and Alice (Queensland Dress) from Madness Returns. All male characters listed will be gender-bent. I always think its silly when an obvious girl is doing a male character and trying to do it the male version. Gender-bending is awesome!
Tell us a little about yourself
I have many hobbies! I love to crochet, knit, sew, embroider, and bead. I literally bleed ink because I write constantly.
My favorite anime
I adore Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood. It's my favorite anime of all time. I also love Trigun, FLCL, Tenchi Muyo!, and Witch Hunter Robin. I don't know if Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra count as Anime, but I'm obsessed with the two of them ^_^
My favorite game(s)
I don't play many video games anymore. I used to love the Final Fantasy games (8-10.2). I do still play Mario, Crash Bandicoot, and Guitar Hero. I have an unhealthy obsession with The Sims 3.
My favorite book(s)
Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchet. That's the book I always return to. I'm addicted to Harry Potter and Games of Thrones as well.
My favorite character(s)
Oddly enough, most of my favorite characters are male. It makes it fun to try a female version. Zuko from Avatar: The Last Airbender. Severus Snape, Sirius Black, Luna Lovegood, and Neville Longbottom from Harry Potter.
My favorite movies(s)
The list is too insanely long. Ink, The Fall, and Repo! The Genetic Opera to name the lesser known ones.
My favorite actors/actresses
Bill Nighy, Billy Connolly, David Tennant, Emma Stone, Ewan McGregor, Kevin Durand, Lon Chaney, Michael Fassbender, Missi Pyle, Olivia Wilde, Scott McNeil.
