What was your first Cosplay Experience?

I heard about an event called “Substitute Santa” going on at my local comic book shop.  Basically, instead of families taking pictures with Santa Claus they take them with superheroes.  I wore Johnny Storm, aka The Human Torch, to it.  At first I was nervous because this was a new experience for me, but I quickly settled in and had a blast!  In addition to having a great time, I made new friends in the process.  This event was my cosplay genesis and I’ve enjoyed the ride ever since.

How long have you been Cosplaying?

Over 2 years, but the number of cosplays in my repertoire makes it seem like I’ve done this longer! lol

What is your favorite cosplay you have worn/created?

That’s a hard one because it’s like asking a parent who their favorite kid is.  Gambit, Arrow and Anakin Skywalker are definitely a few favorites I love to wear thanks to my charity work with Heroes Alliance, The Rebel Legion and the 501st Legion.  Casey Jones, Eric Draven, Tarzan, Nightwing and Fred are fun as well.  Recently, I’ve enjoyed Scott Pilgrim and Michael Corvin.

If you had unlimited resources, what Cosplay would you create?

Rowen of the Strata from Ronin Warriors.  I’m not a big anime fan, but I always loved that show growing up.  Being a big fan of Samurai history, the armor and weapons on the show were glorious!  I have a few other dream costumes, but Rowen is the ultimate one!

What advice would you offer others trying to break into Cosplay?

Have fun with it, but don’t let it get out of hand.  This hobby can be both addicting and expensive.  Make sure you have a budget every time you’re planning out a new costume or if you’re thinking about attending a convention, especially one that’s out of state.  I can’t stress budgeting enough to first time cosplayers.  Be sure to ask for help if you’re struggling.  There will undoubtedly be times where you’ll become frustrated and have no clue how to figure out an issue.  When that happens, ask for help.  People are willing to help if you ask.  Believe me, I pride myself on figuring things out on my own, but when I couldn’t, I asked for help.  Finally, don’t let anyone discourage you from doing a costume based on height, weight, ethnicity, gender, etc.  Cosplay is about having fun and exploring yourself through creativity.
