Alari Cosplay and Couture
I really enjoy seeing Cosplayers who understand their worth, but keep their head about them. I also love Elsa and just about anyone who cosplays as her. I really would like to revisit cosplaying her and seeing Alari cosplay as her is really making me want to hop on it. You'll definitely have to see what I'm talking about

How long have you been cosplaying?
About two years, but I've taken sewing classes since 8th grade and I've been taking online fashion college classes for three years.
What got you into Cosplay?
Since I was a child I've been obsessed with Charmed and Alvin and the Chipmunks, and always wanted to dress like them and wear their outfits, I just didn't know it was called cosplay back then :) and in 4th grade is when I really made my first attempt at sewing. It's been an on and off thing since then due to depression and lack of funds throughout the years. But now I'm back on track and it's not going away. :)
Favourite Costume? Was it bought or made?
My favorite is Queen Elsa. My coronation cosplay was purchased, but for my snow dress look, I made the skirt and bought everything else. However...Rumor has it I'll be starting work on making my own ice corset within a month... :) I also have the most fun with my Rarity (started making a new one last night) and my Harley Quinn and Twi'Lek. :)
What are your goals as a cosplayer?
My goal is to expand to be a bit of a media influencer. I currently model for two online companies and want to continue doing that alongside my cosplay.
Which Cosplayer inspired you to cosplay?
My cosplay life/dream honestly really wasn't 'inspired' by a specific cosplayer, just characters. I do have a former cosfriend who helped guide me back onto the road of cosplaying and helped me relearn to sew, but she didn't inspire me. :)
My dream cosplay is teen Molly from Pokemon 3, and I want to make an Entei costume for my dog. :D I'm not sure how likely it is, though...
Favourite Skill of Cosplay? (Wig work, sewing, armor, etc)
I have not expanded with too many skills yet as I am still fairly new to this, but I will be working with SO much new stuff this year. Shoe making, jewelry making, armor making...Follow me on my handles to watch me grow :)
The photographer who took my swimsuit Harley Quinn pictres is Echo510 Photography. The coronation Elsa and my French Rarity is my sister at Masha Rosela Designs (trying to convince her to add "and Photography" because she's been doing it for over a decade) and the rest were by me.
