Being in the cosplay community for so long, she has made a lot of good friends. Their creativity and friendliness is what has kept her cosplaying for so long. She has joined several cosplay competitions and amazes the crowds with her performances and character portrayal. Her favourite performance being Maleficent, where she took home first place.

She has cosplayed a lot of characters over the years. If she has similarities to the character or she just likes it, she’ll cosplay it. Some of her favourites being: Saber Nero, Maleficent, Synchronicity Miku, Umi Sonoda, Blood Moon Elise and Arcade Riven.Her biggest inspiration in cosplay is  Spcats Tasha.

She would like to thank her bestfriend Christine, for pushing her to cosplay for the first time. She also thanks her cosplay friends for always supporting her.
