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)!
