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.
