What’s your cosplay alias and why did you choose it?
My cosplay alias is Player Two which was given to me by the guys of Next Genesis Comics while I was at FanExpo. I was dressed as Luigi and being teased by them for not being Mario. Eventually they stopped calling me by my name, and started calling me Player Two. It stuck!

How many years have you been cosplaying and what got you started?
I started cosplaying in 2010 as Wonder Woman for a woman’s charity and fell in love with it. Earlier in 2012, I became a part of an awesome group of cosplay girls called GeekxGirls and they have become some great friends.

What has been some of your favorite things to work with when constructing costumes and why?
I have always loved sewing, and sewing costumes has to be one of my favorite things about cosplaying, let alone constructing costumes. Seeing my designs become a reality is amazing!

What are you excited to be working with in the future and why?
I’m excited to work with new costume constructing materials this year, including: latex, leaves, and body paint. It will broaden my costume design and constructing “portfolio”.

What are some of the traits you like to see in other costumes and who do you think does well in them?
Accuracy is something I love seeing in other costumes. Don’t get me wrong, I love to see people put their own spin on their favorite characters, but an accurate costume is always really well done. As for whom looks best in these costumes, I think that anyone and everyone who wears them does! All you need is a little confidence (certain costumes may need a lot of confidence, hehe) and the know-how to back that character up.

What is your view of the “cosplay scene”?
I love the cosplay scene! Everyone is always so friendly and supportive and offer advice for future costumes. I have received nothing but support and encouragement as well as compliments on my costumes, which is awesome. : )

What are some of the things you want to see change in the scene?
I think the only thing I would change about the cosplay scene is the skeptics. The people who think that girls can’t be geeks. I’m sure we can all agree that is not true.

What is some advice you could give people starting to get into cosplay?
The best advice that I could give to someone who is starting to cosplay is BE AWESOME. Be confident in yourself and your work. You’re an awesome person and no one can take that away from you.

What are some of your favorite conventions you’ve attended and why?
I’ve just recently started attending conventions, but FanExpo has got to be my favorite convention. At FanExpo this year, I met Alan Tudyk and received a wicked compliment on my Lady Ash (Evil Dead) costume. He even played with my chainsaw. SO AWESOME!

Give a random fact about one of your costumes that you’re proud of!
Lady Ash is one of the costumes I’m proud of. Random fact: That was a last minute costume choice that I borrowed from one of the guys of Sky’s the Limit Costume and Design and is actually for a man. ; P
