About Me / Q&A

What got you into cosplay?
Cosplay, costuming, creating. Blood &Thunder - WoW gamer, Marvel reader, Fantasy Nerd. I started cosplaying when AWA was small, many moons ago - my first cosplay was Princess Ai from the same-named manga. To my surprise, I was chosen as the Judge's Favorite that year and it ignited a passion in me to create. More than anything, I love the challenge of taking a character from the 2d to the 3d. I love the technical and aesthetic problem solving involved in making an accurate (as possible), wearable creation that brings characters I love to life. My focus is mainly videogames and comics, with my affiliation leaning heavily -if not entirely- to Marvel. If youd like to involve me in a project, collaborate for a build/shoot/appearance - please let me know! I also construct avant garde and high fashion, as well as style shoots for editorial, artistic, etc. You name it, I can do it. Please dont hesitate to converse!
What was your first costume and why?
Princess Ai from a manga of the same name. The costume was just so pretty and looked simple enough for me to accomplish.
What is your favorite costume and why?
So far, it has been Sylvanas. During her fabrication, I put a lot of emotion into the creation and into researching the lore behind her life and her story. Something about this one just really touched me, and I absolutely love it.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
I had begun work on Kerrigan several years ago - and got stonewalled by life events (moving, etc). Id love to be able to finish her one day.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
I am the reigning Ms BioGamer Girl for 2013, the cover girl and feature for the July issue of BGG magazine, and have won several Best in Show and Judge's Favorite awards over time
