I attended my very first convention in 2012. I went for the vendors and panels, but got drawn to all the amazing costumes around me. I knew that I had to try it. The next year I made a costume from any materials I had around the house. I used an old sweater, hot glue, sticks and paint. And I loved it. That was the moment I knew I was in it for the long haul. My ultimate goal was to one day participate in an international cosplay competition, representing Canada. In 2014, I started competing in cosplay competitions. By the time I was 16, I reached the Masters Division in cosplay competitions. Ever since I have been competing as well as judging many cosplay events in Alberta, Canada.
Besides cosplay, I work in the Veterinary industry, as well as the equine industry. I am a Vet Technician Assistant by day and a horse riding coach by night. I have been teaching horse back riding since 2018, and have been riding since 2005. My horse is a chestnut thoroughbred mare named Monaco.
I am currently in school for a double major in Natural Science and Education. I have always been passionate about science, especially genetics and zoology of invertebrates. I will start my education degree in 2021 in hopes of becoming a science teacher! I love to talk about cosplay, but if you bring up how genetic methylation works, get ready for a 15 minute rant!
My plan for the future is to continue my cosplay journey, and trying to continuously level up my craft. I hope in my upcoming years of cosplay to do more for the community, giving more opportunities for other cosplayers to learn what I have discovered in my craft.
