What got you into cosplay?
I loved Ben 10, and being a 14 year old girl, most people thought it was odd, but my parents just thought it was a phase, and thought nothing of it. I on the other hand, loved it- watched it all the time, and I became a camp counselor so i could talk about it with the kids. Over time i looked into buying a Ben 10 jacket to wear basically everyday. But being 14, all the jackets were made for little boys. So, naturally i was upset. But then i figured, 'Hey, why not make one' it seemed easy enough, i grew up watching Project Runway with my older sister, so i knew the basics, so i bought the PERFECT color fabric, and a template, and DONE! It was perfect, it was probably the most accurate jacket ever made. I payed attention to every detail, and without realizing it, i was becoming a Cosplayer! My friends just went with it, and realized i was just being me, some people thought i was odd, but i just put my head up, and said 'hey, this is who i am' and my friends thought it was wonderful. They have admitted to me that they would never have the confidence to just go out there, and basically tell the whole wide world that they are a nerd! But hey, i love Ben 10, and that passion has led me to my future dream- i want to be an animator for Cartoon Network one day- Believe It!
What was your first costume and why?
It was Ben 10, because i loved Ben with all of my heart, and i wanted a jacket to wear everyday, and being a 14 year old girl, all the jackets were made for little boys, so i had to make one!
What is your favorite costume and why?
My facorite costume so far would have to be Fem Luffy. Although the cosplay itself isnt complex, being Luffy just puts me in a great mood! All you need is a smile and a wave.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
I would love to make something really detailed, and rather big. Like a ball gown for Princess Peach or armor!
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Going out with my friends, and jumping around and really being the happiest i have ever been. Also going to my first con, and seeing all the happy con-goers
