About Me / Q&A
What got you into cosplay?
I saw a few cosplayers at Phoenix Comicon 2013 and began to research what a cosplayer was. From then on I was hooked and I made my first cosplay from March - May of 2014.
What was your first costume and why?
My first cosplay costume was a Diablo 3 Demon Hunter. I loved watching my friends play Diablo 3 and I often viewed play throughs on YouTube. When they released the Demon Hunter I was hooked. It also gave me the chance to use ThermoPlastic as I admired Kamui Cosplay and wanted to use her tutorials to better understand the material.
What is your favorite costume and why?
Sheesh...it's like trying to pick a favorite part of your body. Um...I think I am split down the middle. It's either my Nisha from Borderlands TPS OR it's Fuu Hououji from Magic Knight Rayearth. Both were large endeavors, both had first time material explorations in them and both are ALOT of fun to wear.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Thane Krios from Mass Effect and one of the Saber Suits from Bubble Gum Crisis.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
I have MANY memorable experiences but the one that surprised me the most was winning best in show at what was supposed to be just a Fashion presentation. The host surprised the cosplayers with first, second and third place assignments. They called the third and second place winners; I wasn't expecting anything after all, this was my FIRST costume and others definitely had better cosplays so when he called my outfit I sort of dazed for a second. The shock that my work was worth a $150 prize made me blush like a goofball but it was still an incredibly eye opening experience.
Do you participate in masquerades?
Heck yes I do!
What was your best masquerade experience?
A group of us dressed as characters from Borderlands. The pre-judging had gone horribly due to shifts in staff and poor planning so we were determined to get on stage and make the best of it. The skit was AMAZING! Even though they accidentally cut our audio short we still had a lot of fun and the crowd lost their minds when they saw so many Borderlands cosplayers step out (we had Nisha from TPS, Tiny Tina from #2, Ellie from #2, Willhelm from #1 & 2 and Mad Moxxi from #1).
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Yes. I won first place in a fashion show for my demon hunter and Best in Novice with my Teen Titans group at Mesa CMX 2015.
Tell us a little about yourself
I am married and have two fur babies (a cat and a dog). I am an IT Project Manager by day and an aspiring Artist by night. I love to draw, play video games, exercise, read comic books and spend time with my husband. I am the Cosplay Editor for FanGirl Nation Magazine and I have participated as a volunteer in numerous phoenix comicons.
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
