What got you into cosplay?
Always loved costuming, design, and role playing - I see cosplaying as the ultimate form of creativity! When my original plan of becoming a concept artist (with my art degree) fell through I began searching for a new way to use my artistic talents; luckily, I ended up rediscovering cosplay!!
What was your first costume and why?
I made two at once! It was my husband's original character, Elior, from his novel and I constructed Fluttershy from MLP for myself. My actual, first cosplay (GW2 character) fell through when I had attachment problems with the armor. There was limited time left before the convention so I put that one on hold while I started/finished two, much easier costumes!
What is your favorite costume and why?
Since I just started I'd say my favorite costume TO make will be Willow, the Undead Paladin - an original character of mine that will require the finest cosplaying engineering to create and wear - so exciting!
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Currently, I have two: the more complicated version of my GW2 character (than the one I'm making now lol) and my original character Willow, the Undead Paladin.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Lol "so far" is from half a year's worth of experience but I'd have to say experimenting with materials and after failed attempts finally getting it right! So nice to see a well-finished product - very addicting.
Do you participate in masquerades?
I look forward to my first one in August, 2014!
What was your best masquerade experience?
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Since my first convention was 3/21/14 I look forward to entering in future contests to hopefully win some awards.
Tell us a little about yourself
I graduated college with an art major/design minor in January of 2013. I am an only child and recently (09/28/13) got married to a man who equally shares in my crazy endevours :) Besides cosplaying, which eats up most of my time, I enjoy drawing, playing GW2, chasing my cute puppy, and watching The Walking Dead.
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
Batman is best superhero! I love the TV shows Walking Dead and Heroes of Cosplay. Top four favorite cosplayers are Kamui, Yaya Han, Lightning, and Enayla.
