What got you into cosplay?
Seeing all of the awesome cosplays while attending different conventions and thinking "Hey, I could do that!"
What was your first costume and why?
X-23; Issue 1 of X-23 cover variant. She is one of my top 3 favorite X-Men (Shadowcat, Psylocke, and X-23) and her costume seemed the easiest to piece together from existing clothes rather than attempting to make my own cosplay from scratch.
What is your favorite costume and why?
River Tam from Serenity - the green DKNY dress. This is my first cosplay where I created the outfit from scratch. The dress was hand sewn to a bra and each brass stud was individually bedazzled.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
I would love to create an epic Steampunk-inspired Borderlands cosplay one day. I have the gun... I'm just not sure where to start on the outfit.
Tell us a little about yourself
I am a graduate from Texas A&M University. I currently have a full-time job and two part-time jobs so I am very busy, but I love my jobs so the time flies (usually!). Outside of work and cosplay, I also love photography, knitting, and art.
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
I have three Yorkshire Terriers (Rufus, Remington, and Winchester), and one hamster (Tango) that keep me company. I love them all to pieces and can't imagine life without them.
