Hi darlings! My name's Julie. I'm a french Canadian cosplayer from Montreal. I started to cosplay back in 2012, when I still had no idea what the hell I was doing. For the past years I've learned so much through cosplay; I had no knowledge of sewing at all, no clue where to start to create armor or props! I'm sure I was in the same situation as many of you guyz. Living in my small world watching animes and reading mangas, playing video games and drawing, participating in LARP games, working in my part-time job to pay for my expenses and school without knowing the existence of cosplay and conventions. But then, a friend introduced me to this magical world that I fell in love with. My world changed then. Young, I had always wanted to become a magical girl like Sailor moon or CardCaptor Sakura. But with time, my preferences changed radically. I was now into badass strong woman. I've guessed that it's probably why a friend suggested that I start cosplaying with Erza Scarlet from the Anime/Manga Fairy tail. I had never heard of that series yet and I got curious. I started watching it for a few days and it was already clear that Erza would forever be my only Waifu. That's how I got myself into armor and props crafting. If you don't know, Erza is known for her MANY armors. One of my dream is to make all of her armors and expose them on mannequins in a special room in my future house. In my heart, armor and props has always been my favorite part about crafting. I still enjoy sewing but on a totally different level.

What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Recently I've been asked to be a guest in a local convention. This con has putted so much effort into promoting the guests and I have been featured with my Shadow of the tomb raider cosplay a lot. It's so wonderful to see these beautiful photos of myself and the people I've met through this experience has been amazing also.
What is your favorite costume and why?
My new Shadow of the tomb raider Lara. I feel like it fits me so much more than others and I feel comfortable when wearing it. I love the mix of classic and new games feelings that it gives me. Makes me feel badass.
What is the biggest challenge you've overcome while crafting your cosplay?
Learning to sew has been very hard on me. I am an armor and props girl so for me to learn sewing, it's actually a lot more demanding. I've managed to make a ballgown not too long ago and I hope to be able to do even more from now on.
