What was your first Cosplay Experience?

When I was living in Long Beach, I was watching this show called The Guild and the characters went to a convention called Megagame-o-ramacon which was filmed at the Long Beach Convention Center.  I did some research and discovered the Long Beach Comic Con was actually going on the next weekend.  I bought weekend passes and the first day I came in regular clothes and saw so many people in costume that I went home and changed into an old Supergirl Halloween costume.  Ever since then, I’ve been hooked on cosplaying!

How long have you been Cosplaying?

The first time cosplaying was at the Long Beach Comic Con in 2011.  It was a store-bought Halloween costume that I wore to several conventions after that like Comikaze and Wondercon.  My first time at San Diego Comic Con is when I started branching out to different cosplays.  Since then I have met many talented cosplayers, seamstresses, and prop makers that have all made cosplaying way more fun and easier.

What is your favorite cosplay you have worn/created? 

My favorite cosplay has got to be the Lady Gambit that Castle Corsetry made for me.  Watching the cartoons growing up, Gambit has always been my favorite X-men.  Being able to cosplay him has been the best feeling.  Also I recently visited New Orleans where Gambit is from and I fell in love with all the Cajun food which helped me appreciate Remy Lebeau/Gambit the character and where he came from.

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

I would be a transforming Bumblebee from Transformers- the kind where if you crouch down, you become a car.  Those look so amazing and fun to do!

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

Cosplaying is about fun.  Cosplay what you love and enjoy yourself.  Pay no heed to negativity or drama.  Just focus on why you cosplay in the first place which is being able to dress up as your favorite characters and being able to pay tribute to them in your own way.
