7. What kind of games do you play? Videogames? Tabletop? Wargames?
I’m an RPG gamer, whether it is tabletop or video game. I also attend many LARPS, including Mind’s Eye Society Vampire games, Dystopia Rising, and a recently discovered local Warhammer LARP. Elder Scrolls is one of my favorite franchises and I love everything about it. After having played over 300 hours of Skyrim, the release of ESO was an exciting opportunity to learn more about that world. The same can be said for Fallout, I have always been a huge fan and love the style.
8. What conventions do you attend? Have you guested/spoken on panels/competed in contests?
I have been to so many conventions that I have a stack of con badges a mile high. Paneling and guest judging is something I offer to every convention I go to. Usually, I will be a guest at 2-3 shows per year, but I sell my wares and leather goods at 1-2 shows per month. I was a costume judge at Dallas Comicon in 2016, a guest at Yellow City Comiccon, All-Con, RealmsCon, and several smaller shows last year. I have also competed and won awards at multiple conventions over the last 8 years.
9. What projects are you working on in the future?
I am currently working on a Tomb Raider (Another of my favorites and one of the strongest gaming influences on me as a kid) cosplay and Aloy’s Carja Blazon armor from Horizon Zero Dawn. My biggest project for the year is a Krampus, the Christmas demon of old German lore. The face is a canine skull with two sets of horns. It will have hooved satyr stilts, clawed hands and a bandoleer of clanging rusty bells with bones. I am creating it for a LARP event being held by Mad Raven Productions at RealmsCon in October this year. Crossing my fingers on the time for a Sister of Battle sometime soon as well!
