What’s your name & how old are you? Ellie Christina, in my 20’s.

How long have you been cosplaying? For about 6 years, although I’ve always loved playing dress ups

What inspired you to start cosplaying? I stumbled across a photo of Yaya Han dressed as Catwoman. I assumed it must have been from an upcoming film. But I ended up on her website and I found out that cosplay was a thing. I still wasn’t sure what it was, I thought it must have been for a few select models for photoshoots only, but decided I wanted to try.

It wasn’t until a year later that I realized that Perth actually held comics cons, and that people would cosplay. I finally attended my first event and fell in love with cosplay and never looked back.

What was your First Cosplay? Zatanna

Who else do you want to cosplay? Darth Talon, Jinrai, Jessica Rabbit

Tell us an odd fact about yourself! I’m a Type 1 Diabetic with an insulin pump, which means every cosplay you see me in I’ve had to come up with a way to ‘hide’ my pump!
