12. What are your favorite movies/shows to watch or music to listen to while you craft?
Its a very good question because I can not work in a quiet workshop! In my workshop I have a little screen and I generally watch toy story movies. For music, I generally listen to 80s rock but of course my music taste depends on my mood.
13. What are your social media/website links? Where can we find you?
14. What message do you have for people wanting to break into cosplay? What have you learned in your time working in Cosplay?
I would like to say this to people whomever wants to start cosplay; people can say to you that this is an empty thing to do. People can judge you, people can bring you down. Don’t mind their opinions and be the hero you wanna be. There are lots of things I’ve learned from cosplay, like staying up all night to finish something, not caring bad comments, being confident.
