"My first cosplay was back in 2014 and I presented it at a small local comic con at my local library. I decided to put together a Marty Mcfly cosplay from the 1984 film Back to the Future by just pulling pieces from my closet and my parents' closets. I even created a duct tape version of Marty's hoverboard to tie it all together. In the end, I won 'Best Thrifted' at the convention and my love for cosplay just grew from there."
"At my first convention I was just a child and saw so many people dressed up and saw a lot of characters I loved. I immediately fangirled, took many pictures, and thought 'I wanna make people just as excited to see me as I was for them'"
