2.When did you become interested in cosplaying? What influenced you or who influenced you?
I became interested back in 2016.
There was a pop up bar that was themed after the Cantina in “Star Wars: A New Hope.”
I went with some fellow Marines and I decided to wear a Halloween costume, Slave Leia.
What I did not realize was that there would be entire families, young children included. I was mortified to say the least.
At one point, there were two young girls dressed as Star Wars characters looking right at me. Their mother came up to me and asked if I could take a picture with them. I agreed, albeit still nervous.
As I was taking the picture, the girls told me how I was their hero and how I defeated Jabba the Hutt in my armor.
That’s when I realized that they didn’t see me as a girl in a bikini.
They saw me as their hero.
That’s when I decided to delve deeper into the world of cosplay.
