What was your first Cosplay Experience?
My first cosplay experience was at Baltimore Comic Con with a bought Cat Women costume not gonna lie!! I just feel in love with dressing up and becoming someone else that I decided to start making my own cosplay! But I love my first con everyone was so nice and I bought way too much!
How long have you been Cosplaying?
I have been cosplaying for over 2 years now and don’t plan on stopping!!
Who or What inspired you to take up Cosplaying?
I got inspired to cosplay by the fact that I could put on a costume and become someone else and that is just so fun. I have found out that I act differently when in cosplay because it is kind of like your own secret identity and protects you.
If you had to pick a favorite Cosplay you have worn or see someone else where What would it be?
My favorite Cosplay would have to be Gyarados but I love seeing other cosplayers Demon Hunter from Diablo and I try to lean from other cosplayer so I can some day make it!!
If you had unlimited funds and resources, what Cosplay would you create?
I would have to say Demon Hunter from Diablo!! I love all of the details and that she is just so cool!!! I have never done a complete armor cosplay so I’m still in the process of leaning but hopefully soon I will get confidant enough to make it!
What advice would you offer others who are aspiring Cosplayers?
Best advice is to have fun and don’t let other people’s criticism get to you. People have always been rude and mean and will always continue to be there but it’s our job to not let it get to us. We have to be the bigger person and move on and be awesome because people are mean most of the time because they are jealous and wish they could be doing what we are trying to do!!
