When did you start cosplay? I attended my first con in 2009, bought a Rukia Kuchiki cosplay and sword, and had the time of my life. The first cosplay I made myself was in 2010–creepy space mom Jenova. It’s taken over my life in the best way since then.

My favorite things about cosplay are the time I get to spend with my friends, and the new skills I learn with every outfit. I tend to fall for beautiful, elegant designs, so I try to incorporate those ideals into every outfit I made. I like to think I’m tough, but really I’m just a shy vanilla cream puff. Come talk about nerdy things with me!

When did you start cosplay?: 2012

I got my start in 2012 when some co-workers told me about this magical event called A-Kon where fellow nerds dress up and hang out in costumes. It was instantly addictive, and I’ve never looked back!

As an educator and lifelong student, I love that cosplay constantly teaches me new things. Every element of this hobby is a learning process, and I don’t think I’ll ever run out of new ideas. I tend to cosplay Amazonian warrior types, but I also adore the fluffiness of magical girls and enjoy making elaborate dresses and corsets.

When did you start cosplay?: 2010 is what I use as my official start year, but I “cosplayed” prior to that, albeit badly, before I knew what it was called.

When it comes to cosplay, I focus mainly on sewing; I do a lot of research to keep improving, because my goal is always to create a clean, precise result! I mostly crossplay, so cosplaying magical girls is a little different for me (in a very refreshing way)!

I’m rather awkward irl, so please don’t be intimidated if you meet me. I’m actually a huge fangirl and never shut up about my love of birds (or my current obsessions, One Punch Man and Mob Psycho 100)!

Soy Latina y hablo español. Es un placer cosplear con Cosmic Coterie!

When did you start cosplay?:   AnimeFest 2015

I had never heard of cosplay until I stumbled upon photos of cosplayers in Eternal Sailor Fukus while looking for a Sailor Venus Halloween costume. I decided to commission DaydreamerNessa for an Eternal Sailor Venus fuku when she opened commissions in late 2014 as my very first cosplay. My first con ever was AnimeFest 2015 where I showed up by myself in full Eternal Sailor Venus cosplay, determined to make new friends who shared my love for Sailor Moon!

I met The Geeky Seamstress and Dani at the AnimeFest 2015 convention, and the rest is history! I’m constantly building new cosplay skills and look forward to being all the magical girls and idols one day! I really love meeting new people and making friends! If you see me, I always welcome a hug!

Outside of cosplay, I enjoy physics and astrophysics, going to concerts and live music gigs, and having chill lounge days with my friends. I’ve been married since 12/16/17, I have a baby boy (Theodore – born 3/5/2018), and I have a crazy loud bengal cat named Cara!
