4. What is your favorite comic book character ?
Batman is my favorite.

5. What are your favorite artist or writer ?

6. What got you into cosplay ?
I got into cosplay by attending an anime convention and finding I got really bored after a while so I decided to put my theatre skills to use and started making costumes.

7.If you do more then one character which one is your favorite and if you only do one do you have some ideas for more costumes?

If so what is it Harley is my absolute favorite, but I like doing many others. My first comic character was Poison Ivy and I did her for about 3 years, currently working on a new version of her in addition to my new Harley. Emma Frost is also a big favorite of mine and I have plans to do Livewire from Superman.

8.How long does it take for you to make a costume?
Making a costume varies for me, it all depends on how much time I have during a given day, how many commissions I am working on, and how fast I need to meet a deadline.

9.Have you meet any of the artist or writer that your costume is base  on there work ?
Yes, actually the artist who did Emma’s original series and I talked a bit as I was in the process of making the outfit.

10.Do you buy any toys, bust and etc  base on some of your favorite costume ?
I buy atleast one toy at every con with one of the characters I am dressed in.

11.So do people know you dress up like a comic book hero on your free time?

All my friends know me as a cosplayer, most of them are actually helping me with my press kit to be booked at cons this year and next.

12.What is the funniest thing that has happened to you at a convention?
I actually met my boyfriend at a convention because he thought I was such a cute Harley.

13.Do kids come up to you and think you are the real life character?
Little kids often mistake me for characters I am dressed up as, sometimes I think their daddies do too!

14.What do you like to do when you’re not costuming such as other hobbies ?
I always seem to be costuming. I am either making wigs for myself or for commissions, working on new projects, working as a co host on the internet radio show, Just Push Play, working on costuming websites such as CosplayDeviants, or something else related to the craft. It never ends!

15.Great do you have a website or a myspace ?  So people can contact you ?
