I've recently completed my Masters of Journalism and now I work for a government agency that gives grants to artists. I hope to have cosplay incorporated into my long term work goals.

I graduated 3 years ago from Fashion Institute of Technology with a BFA in Fashion Design. My specialization was in children's wear;




Now I work for UNIQLO a japanese clothing brand, doing their 5th ave window displays. It's really creative! I style the mannequins and make our accessories and prop pieces

I'm a graphic designer. I graduated with my bachelor's degree a few years ago, and currently work for a marketing firm that advertises a variety of brands and products on military bases stateside and abroad! So, I mostly work on printed materials like store signage, promotional posters/flyers, product displays, and anything else our company needs. As far as the brands I make stuff for, they vary from cosmetic companies like Bare Escentuals and Victoria's Secret, all the way to tactical items like utility knives and specialized bags and cases that active duty personnel take with them on deployment. And there's a lot of stuff in between, so I get to work with a variety of styles which is pretty exciting!

I'm considering going back to school for furthering my degree, possibly in design or advertising, or something entirely different! We'll see.

Wow, awesome stuff. You CR Ambassador's sure are an accomplished lot! All work and no play is a bummer though... sooo.....

What kind of fun stuff did you get up at AX 2013? I know there was quite a bit of epic cosplay action going on based on some videos I have seen, but there had to be some other stuff going down too!

I just graduated from Cal Poly Pomona with a Graphic Design BA. Learned a lot of interesting techniques there @_@ Although, what I really want to do is get into the gaming industry. I love the social aspect of gaming! Bringing the community together is something I would very much like to participate in.


Ohh! What type of gaming industry would you get into? MMO MOBA RPG? What type of games take your fancy and if you were to lead a team of designers, what type of game would you aim for?


I love the MMORPG industry mainly. I really like interacting with players, etc. Right now, I play A LOT of World of Warcraft! Been playing that game about 4 months after it first came out! Before that, I played Guild Wars (cause it was free). Still one of my favorites...it's so beautiful! @_@ I play a few others, but yes! I have made wonderful friends through MMOs and if I were a lead designer, I would keep that in mind. I think of MMOs as a lounge, where everyone with similar interests get together, chat, and have a great time enjoying the content.

my first cosplay is sephiroth and it is a bought costume. i dont know how to sew and even if I did there is no way i can make the costume look that good in my first attempt lol. i originally wanted to cosplay Cloud but there was so much cloud cosplayers at the time so i took a different route to 2nd fav character.

My first cosplay was Natsuo from Loveless! Hence, my cosplay name was born. So yep, first cosplay was a crossplay! And yet I didn't bind my chest as much as I should have at all.

Didn't do much the first day. Got to the con late as just tooled around in our room.

2nd day got up did some personal cosplay, then helped promote Elsword Online with our friend Aku Sesu. Love seeing these guys at AX and it's always a blast working with them.


3rd day was ATTACK ON TITAN day, and I was either hosting on the stage saying crazy things with Charmie Sweets or promoting the show. Once the dealer's hall closed we ran over to judge the masquerade. Got into costume at 9am, got out of costume at midnight. It was the best/worst day ever! So much fun!



The last day hosted the last part of Crunchyroll's AX livestream. I wore some super serious stuff that day.



Hope that answers your q! Happy Cosplay!
