Why Do you Cosplay?

“Cosplay changed my life for the better. I adore it and when I started 13 years ago it was a landslide into what it is now. I made friends through cosplay. I met my husband through cosplay. I met my best friend through cosplay. I love meeting new people and seeing the are work everyone puts into their costumes. I love the art of it. I love the craft of it. I love representing a character I adore.”

When you hear the words ‘Cosplay Community’ what first comes to your mind?

“Honestly? Home. That’s the first word that pops into my head. I started in this community a long time ago so the social media thing didn’t exist yet and getting people to know who you were was harder but the people who did know were like my family. It’s one of the most loving communities I’ve ever had the honor of being a part of.

“Who inspires you?

“Karmada Cosplay. Have you seen her work? It’s Amazing. And my buddy Malindachan. Both of them are just fantastic in their work. But all of my friends inspire me. I love seeing people grow from all skill levels.”

Do you have any goals you wish to share?

“I want to spread more positivity! I want to just be a happy person with a happy life. Love Life Love Cosplay! Everyone’s wonderful and I want people to know that.”
