What’s your name?
Where are you from?
What got you interested in costuming?
My girlfriend. It was kind of "her thing" for a while and I never really took costuming seriously until the new "Battlestar Galactica" came out. Until then, I had no desire to throw a costume together. Long story short...The Colonial Fleet came about and thanks to it, I met some of my best friends in the world. Little did I know, I've always been pretty interested in cosplaying...it just took me a while to admit it. I'm a big Marvel and Vertigo fan, so I'm pushing myself to try out new costumes. That and missing Dragon*Con this year sucked hard and I'm determined to get a head start on next year!
How did you find out about The SCF?
Followed a friend's Facebook link a few months ago. Truest_Strike over at cosplay.com was nice enough to remind me of this place and I'm glad he did. I've recently been inspired to take my costuming hobby more seriously and learn how to get better. As it stands now, I don't trust myself with a sewing machine.
What’s your favorite character?
Julian Keller...Pete Wisdom. Depends on the day. :)
What Costume are you currently working on?
Okay, ignoring the part where I admitted having no skills... I'd love to complete the following by Dragon*Con 2011:
- Julian Keller
- Deadpool Corps
- Ada Wong (RE4)
- Lightning Farron (FFXIII)
- Rubi Malone (Wet)
What Character would you most like advice on?
Probably Hellion. I have no experience wearing or dealing with spandex and may need to commission the base suit. What would help me tremendously to know is:
- How easy or difficult is it for a beginner to deal with sewing spandex?
- Are there higher-quality fabrics I should look out for as an alternative to spandex (something with heavier weight but less shine than PVC)?
What’s your dream costume?
The TRON lightcycle suit. Not reaching at all...
What Cons have you attended / plan on attending?
Been going to Dragon*Con since 2002... Attended Comicon 2006... Usually try to hit up Emerald City Comicon or Norwescon. Curiosity's won over and I wanna check out Megacon and Sakura Con next year. :)
Is there anything else you’d like to tell us about yourself?
Hmm...I'm a media producer...I work in video production...motorcycle enthusiast...newly minted soccer fan (Seattle Sounders FC)...fitness junkie. Been known to RP online from time to time... Always happy to meet new con buddies, so please feel free to add me:
Do you have any general questions about The SCF? Where to post a topic? How to post a picture in a thread?
Everything seems pretty straightforward. Great community so far! Looking forward to being an active part of it. :)
