"I definitely love being characters that I love but I also love just looking cute. I love taking things beyond, you don't really get to do that in everyday life. If I could dress up like this everyday I would."

"I didn't sculpt any of this, it's mostly latex and cotton and I just had to find a way to get things to line up anatomically and that was a challenge."

"Cosplay is kind of a magical thing. It's a great way to simultaneously be the truest form of yourself while giving yourself a mask that makes you comfortable enough to be yourself. I find a lot of people who are really good at cosplay are introverts and that's their way that they get out of their shell and that the way that they express themselves. "

"I made everything myself. I sewed my own wing, my leggings, my tights. I used techniques like patterning, I satin stitched my leggings. All of thenbeads I've done myself, there's over 40K beads, rhinestones and sequins. It's all made by me. This is what I do, this is my passion."

"I had no idea there was a place you can go and do Halloween any day of the year and it just kind of all fell from there. It's another form of artistic expression, it's a way for me to relax and it's a way for me to get stressed out, but It's never-ending passion."
