TGL: I’ve followed you for some time yet never learned the origin story! Could you tell us how you got into cosplay and what led you to where you are now?
SC: The Origin of my story is pretty interesting at least I think. I was not really a comic book ‘nerd’ so to speak but I have always liked Superheroes and back in 2014 I got more into comic books and started collecting Wonder Woman because she is my favorite superhero because she is strong and she represents what woman should. My husband Adam Walsh (Speed Force Photography) had asked if I wanted to go to a Comicon and I was like, “Sure sounds like fun, should I dress up?” He told me it was completely up to me if I wanted to or not so I thought let’s see what I can find. I found a website that had plus size costumes because it is difficult to find my size however I didn’t know what I wanted to dress as then I found it the perfect costume. That is when The Sexy Cheshire was born. I went to Free Comic Book Day in May of 2014 wearing my costume because I wanted to give it a test run before the convention. June 2014 I attended my first Comicon Convention which was Phoenix Comicon. I went all 3 days but only dressed up on Saturday I was overwhelmed because I had never experienced anything so amazing. I was nervous at the same time because I didn’t know what to expect but I got no negative feedback and I felt comfortable in my own skin as they say it, I felt like I belonged.
they could fight alongside me without an issue. I would find a good location probably somewhere that those zombies have not already invaded as a base of operations. Always remember Survival Rule #1 CARDIO.
I want to give a huge thank you to The Sexy Cheshire for answering our questions! She is such a kind and wonderful human being that definitely deserves a like on her facebook page!
