A: Am I too predictable if I say wigs? It’s just so crazy what you can do with a handful of fibers and some hairspray! I also really like detailed work, like crafting and finishing accessories.
Q: Which costume are you most proud of?
A: For the moment, definitely Beauty from Ghost Trick. Obviously, the wig was an insane challenge, and I still can’t believe that it all held up haha. It was also my first time having an intensive body makeup. I wanted so much to do the character justice, and the results were far beyond my expectations!
Q: Do you have a favorite Arda Wig style and/or color?
A: I’m not even sure I’ve ever used a same style twice, but I’d say I really like the Jareth for its fullness and the ease of spiking. I like the fact that Arda always has the perfect base wig for any project I want to tackle. As for colors, I’m really fond of the purple palette and I have a soft spot for Ultraviolet (AR020), it’s just so vibrant!
Q: What advice do you have for new cosplayers getting into the hobby?
A: Don’t be afraid to TRY! Try to use a pattern, try some new materials, try the new technique you read about, try to make that wig that seems challenging, try to make that costume even if you’re not sure you have the skills. Sure, you’re gonna make some mistakes at first, but I have been in this hobby for 10 years and I wouldn’t be where I’m at if I hadn’t stepped out of my comfort zone. Just do it! And nobody can tell you what you can or can’t do!
