Would you like to give a shout out to any people in the cosplay community that you would like to work with in the future?

I’ve had the fortune of befriending successful cosplayers such as Yaya Han and Jessica Nigri. I’d love to work with them someday.

Gijinka is a fan re-design of an animal-like character into a humanoid. It makes it easier for cosplayers without needing to commit to a full body furry suit. My vaporeon was designed by Cowslip.

I’m a UI designer in my muggle life. I’ve worked on a number of iPhone apps and Android apps. Also, I’m one of the producers of Nerdlesque Festival on April3-6 in NYC which will bring performers from around the world.

I’m known as the Anime Princess of Burlesque. I merge geek with striptease to create Nerdlesque. I’ve been cosplaying since high school but I started getting serious when I began performing burlesque. Some of my best acts are inspired by Tron, pedobear, Adventure Time, hentai, My Little Pony, and Firefly.


5. What would you consider to be your trademark 77075-3be0cc941261797185745f3e4e02d6b6fandom?

I’m not really sure which fandom I belong to. I am a fairly well rounded geek. Though I did run the anime club in college.

Sakizou Knocker. It’s my favorite cosplay this year.

The PAX from Firefly. Everyone goes to sleep forever but 10% of the population becomes cannibalistic reavers. Hope I’ll have some grenades.
