THE CREATIVES:

1. Your cosplay game is elite from YouTube vlogs to your numerous creative cosplaying it’s always a fun surprise seeing your work.  for those who don’t know about you briefly tell them about yourself ? 
 

COOKIE:


First off, thank you so much! I’m honored that you chose to feature me.

My name is Cookie and I am a YouTuber & Cosplayer from Jackson, Mississippi! I fuse my love for crafting, cosplay, and GFX to bring my favorite childhood characters to life. I find joy in using cosplay to evoke nostalgic emotions and those fun childhood moments that we sometimes forget about as an adult. Aside from cosplay, I also have my own graphic design business called @inkfolio on IG and @inkfoliostationery where I handcraft wedding invitations for brides-to-be. I’m obsessed with all things Disney and have a strong love for Kid Goku!


 

THE CREATIVES:


2. There’s a lot of characters and work that you’ve done. What made you wanna start a creative career?

COOKIE:

Well, I’ve always been a creative since I was a kid. As a child, I use to illustrate books, which were really just my simple drawings stapled together as a booklet. I would sell them to my kindergarten classmates. They sold for $0.25 for black and white and $0.50 for full color lol. The kids would actually buy them. In college, I minored in art and found a passion for etching and pottery all while balancing a modeling career. However, somewhere along the way I kinda lost my desire for both drawing and modeling. I started Inkfolio a few years after graduating, however it wasn’t truly fulfilling me. It took a little while but I feel that I've finally found the perfect way to mesh all of my heart’s desires and skills together and here we are today. :)

 



THE CREATIVES:


3. Who were some of the creative icons or legends that inspired your work and content growing up?
 

COOKIE:


Most certainly Walt Disney. Disney has created some of my favorite characters and films of all time and is the main inspiration for most of my cosplays. I would also have to say Tim Burton and Johnny Depp. Both are such talented artists. I’ve always admired Tim Burton’s unique style, from Edward Scissorhands to Alice in Wonderland. His work is so peculiar and whimsical, words that I often use to describe myself haha.
 

THE CREATIVES:


4. Your creative artistry is one of the  craziest we’ve see haha. You’ve cosplayed many characters from our childhoods growing up including Bulma, from DBZ, Rugrats, The Proud Family and Chel from Road to El Dorado. What's the process like embodying these characters? Do you feel like you’ve grown as creative artist?


COOKIE:


I normally focus on characters that I love and I’ve had a connection with. It makes the process so much easier. I get excited and can’t stop. I can also thank my mom for that because aside from heavily supporting my Disney addiction with tons of costumes, she took making homemade Halloween costumes very serious at one point. It was the highlight of my year. I loved it! So I guess I have a little throwback experience in DIY cosplaying haha.

I typically pick from my list of cosplans and start brainstorming on how I’d like to bring the character to life. Most of the cosplays are pulled together from thrifting. I get any materials I need, do hair and makeup, attach my iPhone to my ringlight, use a remote to snap the photo and pray I get the winning shot lol. Then, I move on to editing and adding any special details that I feel might elevate the photo.

I definitely feel that I’ve grown as a creative artist, even from my first cosplay I posted on IG last November. I cringe a little at minor details that I wish I could go back and change, but I know its apart of the process. I’m happy to see growth and look forward to where my artistry goes.


 

THE CREATIVES:


5. Lastly, what can we expect from you coming up more videos and meet and greet?
 

COOKIE:


You can definitely expect more YT videos and maybe even a few impersonation clips in cosplay. I’m looking to launch my website and some cool Cookie Corp merch pretty soon as well. A meet and greet might very well be in the near future!
