We had the good fortune of connecting with Cheesy Cosplay and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Cheesy, what led you to pursuing a creative path professionally?
I hate the idea of putting myself in a box. I’m hyper creative and needed a medium for that energy. Having the ability to create over multiple platforms in different mediums gives me life.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I’m a trained pastry chef, but at the moment I’m devoting my time to cosplay and acting. I go in deep with my characters. I love to get into the mentality of the character as well as the costume. I love villains, two of my favorites are Belatrix Lestrange and Harley Quinn. I don’t sleep, I have several costumes that each individually took well over one hundred hours to create. All of this is fuel by pure passion, love, drive, and willpower. One of the biggest lessons I learned is I cant make everything by hand, I have to purchase some things but I still hate it. Hot glue, twine, duck tape, and a staple gun can fix most problems. Stay tuned for more cheesy chaos, there is always a lot going on, I’m currently working on scenes for Harley and Belatrix with the goal of expanding them into short films.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Red Rocks is a must Either to see a show or just to hike. Watercourse foods is fantastic, even though I’m not personally vegan their food slaps. I would likely plan the week around the mineral gem and fossil show at the colosseum for crafting materials, inspiration, and general good vibes. Lastly can you even say you were in Denver without visiting the green mile? Responsibly of course, and only if your into that kind of thing.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
The Fondude family (my followers) have given me more support than anyone else in this creative journey. I cry over their love and support on a weekly basis. They will truly never know how much I love and appreciate every last one of them.
