This adorable Harley is quite the character! Be sure to support her and the other cosplayers by following them and liking and sharing their stuff!
Hi, what are you known as?
Tell me a little about yourself.
I’m pretty new to the whole cosplaying scene and was introduced to it through my love of drama alongside a passion for all things creative.
When did you start cosplaying?
Pushing 3 years now!
Why do you cosplay?
I just find it an escape, where you can show your creativity in amazing ways where there’s an end product to see. There’s always this feeling of accomplishment when you go to a convention in cosplay.
What types of cosplay do you do?
I mainly cosplay Harley Quinn (Suicide Squad) which I feel is getting more accurate as I continue. Disney characters (princesses, etc.) are really fun to play around with as well, the Undertale characters are brilliant to use my makeup skills for and would love to look further into additional fandoms for cosplays this year.
What is the most difficult thing for you about cosplay?
The criticism. You will never get through “cosplay life” without having someone throw their opinion at you. Having cosplayed Harley for coming up to 2 years now, I’ve been labelled “basic” more times than I can count. It’s just learning to brush it off, and focus on what makes you happy.
What are your “fandoms”?
Let’s just list a few because there’s too many
-Yuri! On ice
-Any kind of musical! (Les Misérables, Phantom of the Opera…)
-Rick and Morty
What is something you wish beginning cosplayers knew?
Do not be afraid to start small! If you only have the makeup to look like a character, or a shirt that looks close to what they wear, that’s a great start. It just gives you a starting point that you can work from.
What cosplays are you working on?
Cinderella, Arkham Knight Harley, Rapunzel and working to complete my Animated Series Harley Quinn!
What cosplays do you want to do if money and time were no object?
I would love to cosplay Mercy from Overwatch, but I don’t have the money to complete something on that scale. It might be something I look to complete in the future
