Favorite Cosplay & Why : Hard to say since i've only done a few and they each have something special about them. But if I had to pick one as my favorite it'd probably be my senatorial Leia. It's such an iconic look that everyone instantly knows and loves.
How Long Have You Been Cosplaying? A Little over a year now
Do you make your own or commission? I make most of my cosplays because I really enjoy creating something and then showing it off. I also like having control over how I want things to fit and look.
What's your favorite thing about cosplay? My favorite thing about cosplaying is the people i've met through this hobby and how helpful everyone is. Have a question about how to make something? Here's ten people who've made the same thing and a bunch of tips/advice to help you.
Next Convention? Wisconsin Comic Convention!
Best Experience Cosplaying? Best experience hands down has to be Star Wars Celebration. I was lucky enough to start cosplaying and then months after celebration was announced in a city near me. From the time I brought badges to the actual con, I made some really great friends so it was great seeing them in person after only taking over instagram. Also at celebration I debuted My Shaak Ti cosplay and at the risk of sounding vain, I loved the attention I got. So many people wanted pictures and asked how I made my lekku. I loved explaining the process to people and talking about my cosplay.
Advice for new cosplayers:
As someone who doesn't have a whole lot of experience under her belt, a piece of advice I would give to new cosplayers is don't be afraid to learn and ask for help. Each of my cosplays I needed to learn a new technique and at first I was intimidated but watching hours of YouTube and getting tips from other people, made it so much easier!
