About Me / Q&A

What got you into cosplay?
The need for a new creative outlet post-college, and of course the magic that is DragonCon.
What was your first costume and why?
My first honest, non-Halloween attempt at making a costume was Xena: Warrior Princess. I got really into the series after my senior year of college, and when I needed an idea for my first DragonCon, it seemed totally fitting to give a nod to my favorite femme hero.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
My most enthralling cosplay experience to date was dressing as Demona from Gargoyles for DragonCon2012. I had never experienced the overload of praise and photo requests from strangers that comes with a good cosplay, and it was kind of a trip. But the best part was how instantly I was able to connect with fans of a series that I adore and often can't find people to share it with. Also, it was my first experience with body paint and that was WAY cool.
My favorite game(s)
Final Fantasy X, Kingdom Hearts
My favorite book(s)
Hunger Games, Harry Potter, His Dark Materials, an endless list of history, sociology, and queer theory academia.
My favorite movies(s)
Barbarella, Scott Pilgrim, Waiting, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs
