While I’ve been working on this site, I have been answering my Facebook and Instagram messages, and I’ve been noticing that I keep getting almost the same ones over and over again. Unfortunately, because I have a full-time job and personal responsibilities, I simply cannot answer every question and comment (though I try)!.
PrincessJazz Cosplay FAQ.
- How did you start cosplay?
I kind of fell into cosplaying. I’ve studied textiles and dressmaking previously. When I went to uni for my nursing/paramedics degree they had a Heroes and Villains night and for the hell of it, I made Jill Valentine (STARS) from Resident Evil for it. Made everything, (even the gun). A couple of weeks later was a major Convention in Australia so I decided to go with a girlfriend wearing the same costumes we had made for the party.
- How long have you been cosplaying for?
I’ve been cosplaying since 2010 and re-enacting since 2013.
- Do you make your own costumes?
I try to. Since I started costuming I’ve strived to make all of my costumes, even going so far as to learn new techniques, (Like how to sew spandex and latex) to be able to make the best possible looking costumes.
- Can I see more photos of the Slave Leia?
Sadly I no longer have that costume, I didn’t feel comfortable wearing it as I had just started cosplaying when I inherited it, so I wore it that one time and then sold it. But I am going to be getting a better quality one.
- Do you have any advice for new cosplayers?
Just do it, you aren’t alone, we are all one big community, and you will find people who have the same interests as you. Likes don’t mean anything, it all depends on how much fun YOU have.
- Are you single?
I am not, I am actually married to Doc of FIHCostumes, who has been cosplaying since 2006! We got married in 2017, and I’m now mum to a gorgeous Treklet
- Where are you from?
I am from Australia, born and bred.
- When is your birthday? How old are you?
My birthday is Halloween, and don’t you know its impolite to ask a lady her age?
- What do you do when you aren’t cosplaying? What do you do for work? Can we be friends on Facebook etc?
I am a Registered Emergency Nurse. My Personal Facebook is for close personal friends only and trust me, you can contact me on my Cosplay Facebook page for all my cosplay updates.
- Can I send you things?
I have a PO Box that you can send me whatever you want. its
ATTN PrincessJazz Cosplay
PO Box 574
- Do you have Skype / WhatsApp etc?
I don’t have either of these apps and trust me with my chaotic work schedule, Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat or Instagram are much more efficient means of keeping in touch with me
- Where did you get your TOS dress pattern? I got it from here
- How did you start cosplay?
And now the answer to the question I get more than any other.
Yes, my boobs are real, they are natural and are currently a 34G(12G) <- Not that that number means anything to most of the people asking. I am aware of how big they are, as my back and shoulders like to remind me every day. I do not cosplay specifically to show them off. I will also not show them to anyone, no matter what compliments people give me.
