Tell us the first time putting together a cosplay piece.

The first time putting together a cosplay piece I had no idea what I was doing, but what I knew for sure was having a vision of what it was going to look like. I used wood, lights and electronics and even a car battery. It was daunting but I was excited about the challenge of doing something new.

What are the types of characters you’re drawn to cosplaying as?

I am drawn to large armor and bigger than life characters, they usually tend to be robotic, or the main big bad guys in comics or films. I tend to also find characters that will work well by incorporating music and sound electronics, and lots of LED lights.

What do you want to achieve through cosplaying?

This is a great question for me. I guess it’s about learning new skills and growing as a crafter and artist. It’s a huge building and creative outlet for me and pushing skills I have learned to do more things. Plus, it’s a great community and getting to know more people that enjoy similar things.
