What city are you based in?
How did you get into cosplay initially?
I have always been over the top when it came to themed costume parties. I love Halloween and dressing up. I officially got into cosplay when I started playing League of Legends back in 2013. I saw that there were a group of League of Legends cosplayers that go to conventions and I decided to join them.
Do you have a cosplay piece that you are most proud of?
My favorite piece to date is the confetti jacket that Harley Quinn wore in Birds of Prey! I sourced the vest to the screen accurate maker and then spent HOURS hot gluing and sewing the metallic fringe to be as close as the movie as possible. It is such a show stopper piece and I am in love with what I created.
What do you hope to achieve through cosplay?
My favorite part of cosplay is interacting with young fans at conventions or events that I volunteer at. Seeing their eyes light up is my absolute favorite. I hope to inspire young people to be their true selves.
Is there a cosplayer that you look up to or inspires you?
There are a bunch of cosplayers that inspire me! Silhouette Cosplay is a true master! Every costume she makes is just dripping with an insane amount of detail. I also look up to Nonbinate. They are such a positive force in the community and their cosplays are always spot on.
If you could give any piece of advice to new cosplayers, what would it be?
There is no wrong way to cosplay! Wearing a costume you assembled from thrifting is just as valid as someone who hand sewed theirs. It’s ok to buy your costumes or commission them. It’s about having fun and showing off your fandom! Cosplay YOUR way!
What would you say is the hardest part of cosplaying?
The tendency to become your own harshest critic. If you overanalyze certain pieces because they aren’t accurate enough or weren’t made absolutely perfect, you won’t be having fun anymore. At the end of the day no one will notice but you and you will still look amazing!
