Please check out my patreon for the most recent updates!
I’ve been cosplaying since 2008 and have made over 30 costumes and altered many too. I’ve came back to cosplayisland to update everything I’ve been doing and to link all my costumes to that lovely timeline of events. It’s a simple by amazing idea which I love!
1.How did you discover cosplaying?
I descovered cosplay originally just online while watching anime. Then I realised people did it closer to home to started to go to small cosplay meets.
2: What was your first cosplay?
The first ever cosplay I bought was Risa Harada fm DNAngel, which has now been sold. My first handmade cosplay was Kagura Sohma from Fruits Basket
3: Have you ever been in a cosplay contest?
Yes, I’ve been in quite a few. My favourite one was when I entered Shedinja into Sunnycon’s Rising Stars contest.
5: Do you prefer sewing, armor making, or wig working?
Sewing!!! I’ve sewing almost all of my handmade cosplays and only done 1 armour one.
6: Do you prefer to do photoshoots at cons or at specific locations?
I prefer them at locations , I’m normally too hot and flustered and conventions to organise a photo shoot.
7: Is there a type of character you cosplay frequently?
I don’t have a character I cosplay frequently however, I have done a few Pokemon cosplays and have more planned too.
8: Do you have any favorite cosplayers?
All my friends are my favourite cosplayers, Kalila Cosplay, white Enchantress and Kovie Kixx and loads more
9: What's the most detailed cosplay you've ever done?
I don’t think I’ve done a totally detailed cosplay yet, but out of what I’ve done I’d say my Rose from Titanic
11: What is your favorite cosplay you've done?
My favourite cosplay so far is Shedinja, only because I tried so hard to do armour for the first time and it was an ambitious design
12: What is your worst cosplay "horror" story?
I would say my cosplay falling apart at the con, Shedinja wasn’t built very well the straps came off my wings. Luckly I had a playsuit on which saved me a bit ha
14: What's the best in-character interaction you've ever had?
Being Princess Aurora, all the kids were really excited to come talk to me. I literally couldn’t get through the corridor for kids stopping me.
15: Have you ever cosplayed with a family member?
Yes, I have cosplayed with my sister but mostly I cosplay with my niece Little Niko.
16: What is your favorite cosplay photo of yourself?
I love my Rose from Titanic photos, I made the cosplay in 2011 and only got the photos done so I was thrilled to get those
17: What are your go-to stores for cosplay materials/full cosplays?
eBay mostly for equipment, 1st for fabrics for fabrics and coscraft for wigs
18: Do you prefer to buy pre-styled wigs or style your own?
I prefer to get a close enough wig but I do reuse them for more than one cosplay

Yeah quite a few times, I’ve been Al mistook for Ed and I’ve been Fullmoon mistook for a Sailormoon character
21: What's the biggest con you've cosplayed at?
London MCM I think would have been the biggest.
22: Do you prefer cosplaying characters with props, or characters that you don't need to carry a prop around all day?
It really depends, I like to be hands free if I’m with my niece but on my own I like to have a prop
25: Do you prefer to cosplay solo or in a group?
I love group cosplays, the feel of everyone together is amazing. You get people coming up for group photos over and over again
27: Have you ever done a cosplay panel?
Yes, i did one at Fortcon, it was about cosplay for beginners. I was so nervous!
28: Do you prefer to buy or make cosplays?
