Lola: What was your initial reaction to seeing people create fan art of you?

Angelica: I'm stoked! I love seeing what people can create! I love art!

Lola: What's the best part of cosplay for you? And what do you think defines a good cosplay?

Angelica: Meeting people and just the fact I get to create.v

Lola: Where do you see the future of cosplaying going?

Angelica: I really don't know. I mean I could have never imagined it being as popular as it is now. I mean I remember being a closet nerd in school or when it slipped out being called weird, but now it's cool. So who knows.

Lola: How "in character" do you get in costume? Like have you ever thrown down a bit of Italian while dressed as Ezio?

Angelica: I never really get into character. It's just so hard at a convention to stay in character. But I admire those that do.

Lola: Do you think the objectification of women in video games is a serious issue, or are people overreacting over something that actually reflects on male characters as well; that as a majority they are masculine and macho?

Angelica: I guess I just chose to ignore it. I mean to each their own right? If you don't like it then don't play it.

Lola: What do you prefer doing; your cosplays or modeling shots?

Angelica: I love cosplays... or anything where I get to create a costume.

Lola: Do you have any interesting projects lined up in the next few months?

Angelica: Yes I do! One with Amie Lynn for this summer. I'm sure as video game season continues and I read more comics I will find more characters I love and want to cosplay.

Lola: Any word of advice for the cosplay enthusiasts?

Angelica: Don't do a costume because it's popular, do it because you love it! Follow your heart!!

Lola: Will it be too much asking to write something for the readers of NoobFeed on a piece of paper and take a photo of it? Or with anything you want to surprise us.

Angelica: Yes, but not right now. I need to put makeup on I've been working on costumes and watch Doctor Who all morning.
