I love the sphere on conventions, the cosplays that you see every convention and of course the people. I love to meet people with the same interest as me.

What is the most difficult thing for you about cosplay?

The awful comments some people have about your cosplay. I don’t like to get those, because not everyone has got the money and skills to make something screen accurate. But now, I try to ignore those comments.

Who is your favorite character to cosplay?

Nymphadora Tonks, she is really a awesome character, little rebelious, but also very clumsy.

Harry his triwizard outfits and I’m trying to upgrade my Tonks cosplay.

What cosplays do you want to do if money and time were no object?

Hermione’s Yule Ball dress. And maby Harry’s Yule Ball costume. But making his Triwizard outfit is going to cost a lot of money.
