What made you think of your Cosplay name?
I chose my cosplay name off of just being me. I’ve always thought I was a Goddess so I went with that but then my best friend said go with CosGod, at first I didn’t understand what he meant by that. So he explained it, Cos meaning Cosplaying and then God meaning Goddess so the CosGod, Cosplaying Goddess. I loved it and went with it.
What made you get into Cosplay modeling?
I’ve always seen next Top Model and thought, “OMG those girls are beautiful.” I have the height for it and the body shape so I said to myself one day you’ll be a Top Model and work the runway. I’ve seen so many people cosplaying when I first started watching anime and always loved the amazing cosplayers so I wanted to be just like that and be the characters I’ve always wanted to be.
How long have you modeled?
I’ve been a modeling for 5 years now but didn’t really get into until 3 years ago.
Who’s your favorite character to model?
My favorite characher to model is HellGirl Aka HellBoy
Do you buy outfits or do you make them yourself?
I make some of them and buy some of them as well but I’m starting to make all of them now.
What do you feel about the presence of (or lack thereof) POC in the Cosplay scene?
I like the feel of the vibe it gives off. The vibe being exciting, joyful and ready to take over the cosplay world. We as black cosplayers don’t get the credit we deserve when we cosplay. We are always told we can not but we still do it because we show people thay our skin color doesn’t stop us from doing what we love. I love that their is passion in the POC community.
What are your favorite Cosplay events to attend?
MomoCon and Awa. Little events they have at little bowling places or bars
Are you watching any dope animes or any shows with Cosplay worthy characters?
All animes have some dope cosplays like Code Geass or even Inuyasha.

Wow, that’s hard to pick from all the ones I love but I would go with NANA,
Rurouni Kenshin and WitchBlade
Who was the photographer of your chosen photo?
Her name is E-Tech
Can you tell us anything about them? Maybe why you dig them as a photographer or a cool story about you two?
She has a great vibe to her. We rock together and make everything so fun. That’s my best friend as well. When we met we clicked right off the bat. Her skills are what made me want her to be my photographer. She has always been a hard workee when it came to her shoots or we working on a cosplay together. I love her passion and her happiness when she takes a photo.
Is there anything you want your fans and the fans of PUNK BLACK to know?
I want everyone to know that it’s okay to be who you are because there are people out there loving who you are. Never stop following your dreams because one day all the struggles you go through will be all worth it. Keep reaching for the stars and never stop dreaming.
