Introducing Erica a.k.a. @geekchic51
I have been cosplaying since 2016, but always loved Halloween and dressing up.
My first cosplay was Black Widow. My work related cosplay was Dana Scully from X-Files. Dressing up at work for Halloween was frowned upon, but after a year or two of doing characters in business suits the company started to relax the dress code on that day.
The challenges of Cosplay are my age versus the characters I choose to cosplay. I'm 49 years old so it's a consistent struggle against the ravages of time. I strive to be as accurate as I can with funds, ability to create and time, but I'll never be able to pull off looking like a twenty-year-old again.
Best con experience?
I am extremely shy and an introvert so my best con experiences include people actually talking to me. I've met some fun and amazing people at Cons and feeling like I actually belong makes for the best experience. I'm signed up to attend Awesome Con and Rhode Island Comic Con.
What do friends and family say about you cosplaying?
Most people I know are very supportive of my cosplay even if they don't understand it. My mother is always having me show her friends pictures of me dressed up as Wonder Woman.
Where can people find you?
Growing up in Los Angeles in the 70s/80s we visited Disneyland on a regular basis and often after school, before "Annual Passes".
