Tell us about the first time you put together a cosplay piece.
The first time I decided to try and put together a cosplay, I had no idea what I was doing, I did however have the determination. I just went for it and tackled it using a sewing machine. The first time, I made a pair of gloves. After that I felt that I could conquer the world and started to mess around with other mediums, like craft foam, and thermoplastic.
hat types of characters are you drawn to as a cosplayer?
This is a tough question for me. I love art, so I tend to find artwork that calls to me and then cosplay off of that. For example, I did a Spider-Man/Snow White mashup because the art I found was beyond amazing.
What do you hope to achieve through cosplay?
I have been super lucky to have had the chance to give back to the community as well as volunteer for many different events because of cosplay. I also do my best to try and raise money for local charities, and other groups. Cosplay has made that possible!
If you could give any piece of advice to new cosplayers, what would it be?
I love this question! I have always said don't get overwhelmed, start small, and buying a costume is ok!! If you struggle or have questions, always reach out to the community. We all love to help if we can. Cosplay is about having fun, being creative, and embracing your inner geek!
What would you say is the hardest part of cosplaying?
I'd say the hardest part for me is to remember to finish one costume before you start another one! I have a few unfinished cosplays that I have always pushed to the side and then started a new one. I get too excited about new costumes and when that happens old ones get put back in storage.
