To start with please tell the readers a little about your background.
I’m a cosplayer from the UK and my day job is a Community Manager in the games industry.
How long have you been cosplaying? Which costume was your first?
I’ve been cosplaying for a little over two years, my first Cosplay was at May MCM 2011 and I cosplayed Itachi from Naruto.
Who’s your favourite character to cosplay?
My favourite character to cosplay is Lara Croft, she is a character who is very close to my heart and one that I can have the most fun with while cosplaying.
Do you make your own costumes?
I make the majority of my costumes, things like regular tops, shorts and military gear I often buy but unobtainable accessories and items of clothing I do make form scratch.
Is there anybody you would like to cosplay that you haven’t or can’t?
I would absolutely love to cosplay a hunter from Monster Hunter, I’ve started planning it so it’s just a matter of when now.
Have any of your cosplays ever gone wrong?
The only thing that has gone wrong with my cosplays is the yellow paint on my Miranda costume started peeling off all over. That totally doesn’t stop me from bringing all the supplies in the world just incase though.
Have you been to many conventions?
Compared to some, not that many. I mainly do the London conventions such as MCM, Eurogamer and LFCC.
We’re going down to the Eurogamer Expo in September, are you going this year?
Yes, I will be at Eurogamer on Saturday and Sunday.
What game(s) are you playing at the moment?
At the moment I’m heavily into Black Ops 2, I’ve just started playing Splinter Cell: Blacklist and doing another playthrough of MGS 4.
I’m currently playing Splinter Cell Blacklist myself, how are you finding it?
I only just started playing it, from what I played I really like it, I’m especially looking forward to trying the multiplayer though.
How long have you been into games? What’s your first gaming memory?
I’ve been into games since I was really young. I remember a friend of mine had a Megadrive and I used to play Sonic whenever I went over, the first console I had myself was an N64.
What’s your favourite game or gaming genre?
My favourite game is Halo and genre is FPS.
