...I was amazed by how many people wanted my picture...
-Captain Torrez Cosplay

For many cosplay is an expression of freedom and joy. A chance to experience the world from a different perspective and be someone else.
For others, it's a chance to finally be themselves.

Comic Book Illuminati:
What's your best cosplay moment so far?

Captain Torrez Cosplay:
My best moment would have to be the first time I cosplayed Sailor Moon at Comicpalooza 2014. I've loved the series since I was a child and always hesitated to dress up as my favorite heroine. When I finally did it I was amazed by how many people wanted my picture and the smiles that little kids had when they saw Sailor Moon. That experience is something I'll never forget.

Comic Book Illuminati:
Have you been approached filmmakers?

Captain Torrez Cosplay:
I have never been approached by a filmmaker which is probably a good thing for me, seeing as I get very nervous in front of a camera sometimes. I can do photoshoots with no problem but if you tell me to act I get all kinds of nervous [Laughs]!

Comic Book Illuminati:
Have you ever been recognized out of "uniform"?

Captain Torrez Cosplay:
Can't say that I have been recognized outside of cosplay. I have been told I look a lot different out of costume which means I'm doing something right!

Comic Book Illuminati:
What's your best personal nerdgasm story?

Captain Torrez Cosplay:
This also happened at Comicpalooza 2014. I am a huge Doctor Who fan and actor John Barrowman who plays Captain Jack Harkness was there signing autographs. I had been cosplaying a genderbent version of the tenth doctor and only a handful of people knew who I was cosplaying as which was kind of a bummer. I got to meet Barrowman and he shook my hand and gave me a big smile and said he loved my doctor cosplay and that made my entire day.
