What got you into cosplay?
I love creating things and I've always been into comic books, manga, anime, games, etc and cosplay is a great form of escapism and a fun way to express creativity.
What was your first costume and why?
I did a very last minute Silent Hill nurse costume for MCM expo, because it was doable on short notice and with the means I had, and it cost next to nothing. I love the games and movies, and have always had an affinity for horror.
What is your favorite costume and why?
I have a rubber latex Harley Quinn costume that I adore, but I have no pictures in. I ripped the heel and it needs modifying to fit me better, and I want the hands and feet to be removable. Harley is one of my all time favourite characters and I love her costume, but I wanted something a little different.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Many, actually. I'm working on a Poison Ivy costume right now that's always been a dream to make. I'd love to cosplay Mystique and make all the prosthetics myself, and while I'm fairly confident in my execution of the costume, I'm not confident in my body, so my goal is to lose some weight and shape up, so I can pull off certain costumes with confidence. I'd also love a Batwoman costume, as Kate Kane is one of the best ladies in DC.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
My first cosplay as the Silent Hill nurse, because of how overwhelmingly positive the response was to it. I met so many lovely people who really made me feel welcome into the cosplay community and confidant in my abilities. It made me want to cosplay better, and cosplay more.
Do you participate in masquerades?
No, I know that most of them aren't taken seriously, and they're pretty awful and unprofessional.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
I haven't entered anything yet.
