Q: When did you start cosplaying, and what got you started?
A: My first cosplay experience was at Anime Boston 2006. I found out about the convention a week ahead of time, and didn’t want to be left out when my friends were wearing costumes. I had so much fun that I never stopped!
Q: What is your favorite part of the costume-making process?
A: My favorite part is seeing all the pieces come together. It’s so much fun to see all the fabric scraps, jewels, and assortment of craft supplies that you purchased start taking form into something recognizable.
Q: Which costume are you most proud of?
A: Everyone tells me that my Velma is my best costume, but I’m probably most proud of my Gajinka Flareon from Pokemon or Rosette from Chrono Crusade.
Q: Do you have a favorite Arda Wig style and/or color?
A: No. I love them all. I feel like it’s just a matter of time before I have most, if not all, of them on heads around my apartment…
Q: What advice do you have for new cosplayers getting into the hobby?
A: Do what you love. Pick a character that speaks to you and just have fun with it. The fact that you love it will come through with your finished product. It’s a lot more fun making something that you’re motivated to do, rather than one you are doing because you think you should.
