What’s your name & how old are you? TJ Cosplay and I’m in my late 20’s.

How long have you been cosplaying? About 10 years, I believe.

What inspired you to start cosplaying? I always loved playing dress ups and performing, and have loved a lot of pop culture since I was a wee lass, so it was a natural progression.

What was your First Cosplay? My first costume made to be worn at a convention was Robin Sena from Witch Hunter Robin.

What is your most recent cosplay? I am often working on more than one at a time, but the mostly recently finished one was Princess Leia form the comic series.

What cosplays are you currently working on? A Kylo Ren gender bend (Kylie Ren), Raven from DC comics, I just saw Peggy Carter as Captain America too, so that’s been bumped up the list, and I’m updating a few older cosplays of mine like Black Cat and Belle.

Who are your favourite cosplayers in the community? I basically look up to everyone, friends or otherwise! Big shout out to Cowbuttcrunchies for being amazing at everything, and giving me great wig styling tips and inspiration. The sewing/craft costumes they made for Katsu were freaking gorgeous. Also, AK Wirru, just because his perseverance and work ethic is super admirable, as well as being an amazing craftsman. Let’s also say Flocks Locksy because I am SUPER EXCITED for
