Get To Know Our Master Crafters: Malinda
Favorite current anime/game/movie/show:
My Hero Academia, and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and Your Name (I don't watch normal TV oops).
Favorite nostalgic anime/game/movie/show:
This is also a difficult question because some cons I'll go to for the location (Daishocon), the cool costumes (Katsucon), the excellent staff (Anime STL) or the friends I'll get to see (Cosplacon).
Favorite cosplay I’ve made:
My Bard from Final Fantasy XIV, or Twilight Princess Link (though I did about half the work on that costume).
My costuming/crafting strengths:
Wigs, sewing, and painting.
If I could improve one cosplay skill, it would be:
Larger props. I've mostly worked in a smaller space with limited equipment for it.
A quote that inspires me to keep going:
"Take chances, make mistakes, get messy!"
-Ms. Frizzle from The Magic School Bus
One thing I can’t live without at a convention:
My phone! I go to cons more for the people than anything else, so I want to make sure I can get in contact with my friends. If I’ve got work or guest obligations, I also need my phone to keep track of time and my schedule.
Weirdest thing to happen during a convention:
#elfboyfriends or #iamyourrolanberry
