TLG: What made you decide to get into cosplay?
Jenifer Ann: My friend, Candy Keene, that owns Three Muses Clothing got me into Cosplay with her.
TLG: Do you like video games? If so, what are some of your favorite video games?
Jenifer Ann: Love! Way too many to name!! I like some games as simple as Plants VS. Zombies or as complex as W.O.W or SWTOR..
TLG: What was the first cosplay you'd ever done? Tell us about it. Was it good?
Jenifer Ann: Slave Leia was my first Cosplay and I enjoyed it very much!
TLG: What is the most outrageous or ridiculous thing you've ever done?
Jenifer Ann: Drove cross country in less than 48 hours without sleeping...LOL
TLG: Do you feel that cosplaying is competitive? Do you find yourself judging the other artists?
Jenifer Ann: At times I feel judged, but I don't judge others. I cosplay because I enjoy it and all that goes with it. It is a creative outlet for me.
TLG: What do you enjoy most about cosplay?
Jenifer Ann: Creating the costumes.
TLG: What is the hardest part about cosplay?
Jenifer Ann: Same as above, LOL!!
TLG: What were your least and favorite costumes? Why?
Jenifer Ann: Least favorite costumes are ones that have corsets, after two hours I am in pain. Favorite would be my most recent one which I put many, many hours into; Grace from Soulfire.
TLG: Do you currently make a living off of your cosplay? If not, do you plan to in the future?
Jenifer Ann: It is not a means of living for me, rather just a hobby. I have a normal job outside of this. It would be great to be able to only Cosplay
TLG: What advice would you give to someone who has never done it before, but really want to get into it?
Jenifer Ann: A lot of the cosplayers out there are really friendly and glad to help, otherwise there is always YouTube tutorials
