What was your first Cosplay Experience?
The first time I ever cosplayed was a version of sailor moon for Sadie Hawkins in Highschool. It wasn’t very well made but it was a lot of fun!
How long have you been Cosplaying?
Going on 4 years!
What is your favorite cosplay you have worn/created?
One of my favorite cosplays I have ever made was my power girl costume. I bought all the fabric in one day and plowed through the whole costumes in about 8 hours. Though its not a very difficult costume, it makes me feel beautiful and powerful. When I wear it I feel amazing and like an actual super hero!
If you had unlimited resources, what Cosplay would you create?
I am currently working on one of my dream costumes. I am doing lake dress Padme from the second star wars prequel. It has to be made of all natural materials such as silk (which is pricey!) so it can be dyed. Currently the fabric is going to cost at least 200 dollars so I am saving up to make this beautiful gown. If I could I would make all of padme’s gowns because they are stunning.
What advice would you offer others trying to break into Cosplay?
Everyone has to start somewhere. It does not matter if you buy or make your costume as long as you are having fun! Never let anyone make you feel bad for having fun!
