Cosplayer Of The Month Questions
What city are you based in?
Edmonton! I’m from Calgary originally.
Can you tell us about your first cosplay?
It was a mixture between trying on my older sisters cosplays and Wendy Marvell from Fairytale. The dress was handmade by my sister as well!
Do you have a cosplay piece that you are most proud of?
I would say any recent wigs I’ve styled because of how far my work has come with help of the techniques I’ve learned through other cosplayers.
What do you hope to achieve through cosplay?
Inspire other cosplayers, create patterns, and commission wigs one day! But mainly it’s just a hobby!
If you could give any piece of advice to new cosplayers, what would it be?
Definitely try (safely) meeting other cosplayers in your age group! Not having a lot of experience was definitely difficult but having mutual friends with similar hobbies definitely helped me become the cosplayer I am today!
What would you say is the hardest part of cosplaying?
Getting into character and finding the motivation to some days. Yes, it’s really fun but somedays it can be exhausting especially at conventions.
In honor of the 20th anniversary of Lord of the Rings, what is your favourite movie from the trilogy?
Oh gosh, this is going to sound awful but I’ve never actually watched the trilogy. Definitely will have to add it to the watch list!
