What’s your name & how old are you? Breathless-ness (Jill), 34

How long have you been cosplaying? 14 years

What inspired you to start cosplaying? Seeing other people doing it at my first convention. It just seemed like a lot of fun. I’ve always been a creative person, so it was another outlet for me. I honestly can’t believe I’ve been doing this as long as I have!

What was your First Cosplay? It was an original character… I thought it would be easy to make something I designed for my first sewing attempt. The costume came out pretty well for making clothes the first time. After that my next costume was Tohru from Fruits Basket and was mad entirely of poplin. Hahaha, I think everyone started on super basic fabrics like I did.

What is your most recent cosplay? That would be Sailor Captain America which I wore at AVcon earlier this year. There was a group of us all doing different versions of the Avengers as Sailor Scouts. Such a fun day and amazing group of cosplayers

What cosplays are you currently working on? Currently working on a Hannah Alexander design of Sailor Jupiter, which I’ll debut at Sydney OzComicCon

Who are your favourite cosplayers in the community? My best friend JusZ Cosplay and all my cosplaying friends actually! They all inspire me to try new things and just have fun with cosplay

Who else do you want to cosplay? I have an extremely long dream list, but I think my next costume might be a genderbend Gladiator Thor or Valkyrie. I feel like either of these would be a good armour challenge.

Tell us an odd fact about yourself! I like to collect tea cups and pots
