My favorite fans are most certainly the kids though. They are both excited and shy and they just light right up when they get to see and talk to one of their favorite movie characters. The most adorable thing is letting them wear the hat which is usually twice as large as they are, but they don’t care, just smile and run back to their moms giggling. It really makes things special while being in La Muerte.

I was honestly shocked at how much attention the costume got when I showed up. I had people yelling Rick and Morty quotes at me as soon as I walked in andstopping me every few minutes for pictures. I had a blast but I felt bad in a way that a costume that cost me about $5 to make was getting more attention than the hardcore cosplayers that spent large sums of money and countless hours of time and effort on their outfits. My girlfriend was with me the whole time as Tank Girl and I totally thought that she was going to steal the show. I guess you should never underestimate the power of good cartoons and obscure food references.

Creating costumes is always a careful process for me, I tend to get stuck on a concept when I create mash ups or themed costumes for a character. So like the many that had come before, this was a new style and several different patterns of skirts, boleros, capes and bodices that I then ‘mashed up’ to create the particular look I wanted.

Really the main point for us was the props. For the instruments, because of my musical background, we already had many pianos and violins to use as well as lots of sheet music. I even had all the music for a majority of the pieces they played in the anime. We also had pink flower petals as well as the letter that Arima received at the end of the series both at the con and for shoots.

Honestly, I wouldn't have been able to make this costume without Anarchy Girls Cospace. It's a cosplay workshop in Utah (my home state) that supplies members with an area to work and a vast amount of tools to use. The only materials I had to buy for Pet Shop were my boots, gloves (inside the wings), and the felt for my wings! Everything else was supplied by Cospace or something I already had. They even allowed me to stay until 5am on multiple occasions to finish him! I'm extremely grateful for them and their help.

I saw Rogue One 3 times in theaters and it has been my favorite of the new Star Wars films so far. I am a rebel leader at heart. Like Jyn, I aspire to be a voice for justice and to always fight for what is right. It is inspiring to see her brave sacrifice for freedom in the galaxy and it brings me personal strength to embody her character. Plus, she's the only blue eyed brunette protagonist in the live action Star Wars universe!

They say don’t procrastinate, but I prescribe by the philosophy of go big or go home… so in the six days I took to make the costume, I didn’t sleep for three days straight. I also initially made the headpiece way too big – probably carved away about two cans of expanding foam by the time I was happy with the size. Other fun moments include retouching the details on my kimono the night before the WonderCon masquerade, and bribing my brother into helping me paint my back twice over the course of the weekend.

One of my favorite ones was with this little girl who was also dressed as Wonder Woman. She was soooo excited to see me that she ran over for a picture and her face completely lit up when I asked if she wanted to hold the lasso for it. Every once and a while we really get to make a kids day and those moments are pretty awesome.

Oh, gosh. Tell you what -- I have never made this many children cry before. Having said that, I also posed with a lot of badass little princesses who were not daunted by the creepy goat-person. They were just vaguely disappointed that I was not, in fact, Groot. Bahaha.

Cosplaying has affected my life in the most positive way! Most of the close friends I have, I've met through or because of cosplay and I couldn't ask for a more supportive group of people to surround myself with! It's also helped boost my self confidence in ways I couldn't imagine! There's something about becoming another person or character that makes you feel more confident and I've been lucky enough to have that confidence stick with me in my day to day life!

I read Fairy Tail manga and I remember a chapter where his armor appeared. It was so different from her other armor and weapons and I knew I wanted to cosplay it!

I had a really surprising and positive response! I didn't expect it to be so well-received, and bringing it back this year with Hendo Art with her awesome Buzz Trooper was just lot of fun. I was glad that so many people got what we were, it was nice to have both Toy Story and Star Wars fans come up to us.

The process of creating her took me about 4 months. I spent a lot of time thinking about how to tackle her wig mostly, which I actually attempted to make in June 2016. In short, I started her wig first, and then trashed the first attempt because I was not satisfied with the engineering of the wig – the support system, the weight, etc. After I trashed it, I took a little break to rethink it and then finally restarted the project in November 2016 and successfully completed it in February

I had several friends that would greet me at conventions with a "HEEELLLOOOOO NURSE" which was what made me realize I absolutely needed to cosplay her! I also really enjoy cosplaying intelligent women, and as the show points out, Hello Nurse has an IQ of 192!

Between the MCU, the multiple Comic Book versions, and the shows, we had to figure out which Cloak to go with. We decided to go with the seaming from the movie, the gold trim and the pointed collar from the comics.

You have no idea how many young black men and women wanna cosplay but they are afraid because of what family would say, or even their friends. They see me cosplay and they see how happy I am and they ask me things like "how can I cosplay" "where do I start" etc.

I think it's always funny when people maybe don't recognize me right away, because they'll be looking at me with a look of confusion, like why does this girl have a unibrow and mustache? but then I can see the gears turning and I can see them realize who I'm supposed to be (even if they don't remember her name) and I think those moments are always the best because it's really funny to see people put it together who I'm supposed to be.

Just lots of admiration, comments about how creative it is (and, original, as I am the very first), and wanting to trade weaponry during photo ops. I traded my lollipop for a barbed-wire covered bat (imagine Negan holding a lollipop), also traded guns for the lollipop in certain posed pictures. Everyone was super respectful and really loved the concept of the mashup of the country girl from Kansas and the Princess in the bikini.

One of the most memorable moments at a con for me was when I was requested to play soccer with a few adults and a group of kids. It was a blast but the kids were so amused and enamored at how my tentacles were able to kick the ball. The just couldn't figure it out.

I found when I wore it to the Fan Expo in Vancouver that I had a lot more people recognize Babar compared to ECCC but I always love the response I get “OMG! Babar! You were my childhood!!!”. I also tend to get more adults then kids get excited to see Babar. From kids I get “Who is the big elephant . . . ?“
