Tell us about yourself: I'm currently a student in a photography program at my local college. My average day involves reading, tumblring, video games and hanging out with friends as well as occasionally spending days on end getting costumes made and ready to go for conventions! My love for cosplay actually stemmed from my sister, Geek Girl Stephanie, who started going to conventions only a year before she got me hooked! Ever since then, I have fallen in love with the craft and with each costume, I try to improve. Aside from cosplaying, Iím also very excited to be a part of the photography side of things. You can often see me in front and behind the camera!)

Have you always been a geek?: Absolutely. When I was kid, my parents would bring me with them to Star Trek conventions. I have quite a few photos of me as a kid in various Star Trek costume pieces while I sit in my stroller. Star Wars was very much my childhood thanks to my parents. George Lucasí world was so exciting to me, I am proud to say I even had a pet named after the loveable Chewbacca when I was younger. My interests then turned to anime and slowly into the world of cosplay. Now I enjoy a nice balance of sci-fi, fantasy, anime, comic books and video games!

Geekiest thing about you: I have an entire room full of cosplay supplies from wigs to costumes to shoes. Some people might think itís a bit much but it hasnít stopped me yet. I add to it pretty much every convention.
