Q&A Interview with Karrigan Taylor

Where are you from?

I am from Massachusetts!

How long have you been cosplaying? 

I have been cosplaying for about three years.

What first got you interested in cosplay? 

I was huge on playing dress up when I was young and for one of my birthdays I received an entire wardrobe filled with Disney costumes. I remember when I was young I wanted to be a vampire, devil and princess on Halloween. My parents told me I couldn’t be them all, so I came up with an original character that was all three of those things in one. It was a huge hit.

What do you think is the most difficult thing about cosplaying? What is the thing that you enjoy the most about it?

I would say the most difficult thing about cosplaying is finding time to take photos, make sure the costume looks perfect in the photos, etc. I often take around 2-5 hours just self-shooting cosplays and editing them myself.

Do you watch anime?

Yes! I do.

What are some of your favorites?

I like dumb animes. My favorite type of anime is what I call "titty anime" so basically really simple plot with a lot of cute anime girls. Right now I would say my favorite anime is Future Diary because I love Yuno.

What are some of your favorite video games?

I love Overwatch, Final Fantasy XIV, The Witcher series, and Lolipop Chainsaw, just to name a few of my favorites of all time.

Playing anything currently?

I haven't been gaming a lot recently, as I haven't had much time and I haven't found a game I've been interested in.

Favorite television show?

I don't really watch conventional TV, but I like Black Mirror and America's Next Top Model.

Favorite movie?

My favorite movie of 2019 was Aladdin. I have a lot of all time favorites though! I am a huge movie buff.

I was worried about seeing live action Aladdin. Since you liked it, do you think they should continue doing more live action remakes of Disney classics?

I love Disney. Writing for Disney is my dream job, so some part of me wants them to come up with new unique story ideas so that I can help them develop and write them in the future.

Favorite band?

My favorite band is Starset and Slipknot!

Is there a cosplayer that inspires you?

Alyson Tabbitha is a cosplayer that I admire! However, I admire all of my cosplay friends!

Plans for your next cosplay?

I have a bunch of plans in the works, but I really want to cosplay my Final Fantasy character.

Tell me something about yourself nobody knows. 

I am pretty open, so people know mostly everything about me. I would say something most people don't know is that I love to dance and have performed over 100 times.

Where can fans find more of you?
