What's your Favorite Costume &Why?
My favorite cosplay is my newest cosplay the Insomniac Spider-Man suit. I'm in love with the game and it's one of my favorite interpretations of the character to date. I also put a ton of work into puff painting every line and adding Dragon skin silicone to give the white accents of the suit texture and shine. It's been a labor of love for the last 2 months.
How Long Have You Been Cosplaying?
I've been cosplaying since 2014.
Do you make your own, or commission?
I do a bit of both. Sometimes i'll entirely make a cosplay from scratch, typically from EVA foam. But there are times where i'll buy things I don't feel are within my skill set quite yet.
What's your favorite thing about cosplay?
My favorite thing about cosplaying has been meeting incredible people and making life long lasting friendships.
Advice for new cosplayers:
Cosplay whatever you want regardless of gender, race, or body type. When it comes to making your own props and cosplays i'd say keep trying and don't get discouraged if your first cosplay doesn't come out as you intended. Like with most things, practice and patience are the keys to honing your crafts.
