About Me / Q&A

What got you into cosplay?
I've always loved dressing up for Halloween, and now that I'm old enough to be able to make things on my own, I'm really eager to show my love of certain characters by becoming them.
What was your first costume and why?
Technically it was probably a closet Satoshi (DNAngel) crossplay I threw together one Halloween. At the time I thought the character was sexy, so I went with it. Didn't really think much of it as a cosplay versus a regular costume at the time.
What is your favorite costume and why?
That I've done? Probably my BLU Scout's Mom, as it's the one I did the most work on. I sewed my first dress for that outfit!
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
My goal for both my body and my crafting skills is to one day pull off either a Dr. Girlfriend or Dr. Mrs. the Monarch costume. The former is probably the easier goal as it covers more and there's actual patterns I could use or tweak for it. I guess the ultimate cosplay would be to pull off Queen Etherea, but I'm not as drawn to that costume as I am just the idea of it.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
My first groupshoot for TF2 at Sakuracon! It was my second time in my Scout's Mom outfit, but my first time using her accent and playing around in-character, and my first time hanging out with a ton of other cosplayers and actually being in a bunch of pictures!
Do you participate in masquerades?
Never have.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Nope, and I'm not really planning on going out for any though I do always try to be as accurate as possible within my ability.
Tell us a little about yourself
Graduated from college in 2012 with a Bachelor's of Fine Arts. I have worked a few pretty menial jobs since then. Currently working insurance which can be soul-crushing but keeps my weekends free for crafts, video games, and conventions.
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
I've fallen in love with thrift shops, both for cosplay materials and just general necessities.
My favorite anime
I haven't watched a current anime in years. Back in the day my faves were Yu Yu Hakusho, Rurouni Kenshin, and maybe Zoids?
