Hi! *waves* My name is Rachael Anne, but you can call me dillyshilly. I absolutely love everything about Disney's The Little Mermaid and Disney in general - beautiful artwork, the love stories, the magical voices and Ariel's spirit...
I attend various conventions around the UK dressed as Ariel in her many forms, and am quite happy to sing a song when requested! My friends call me a real life Disney Princess! *laughs* and it isn't just Ariel I cosplay! Occassionally I'll attend a con as another Princess, so if you have any requests, feel free to let me know!
What got you into cosplay?
Hmm, this is a hard one! I've always been interested in anime, Disney and video games, and when I was a kid I would pretend to be these magical characters! When I got older, it made me sad that I was 'too hold' to do this anymore. Then I found out about MCM from my best friend Nel...and the rest, as they say, is history haha.
What was your first costume and why?
I actually think it was Meg from Hercules, back when I was about 8! *laughs* but my first actual cosplay (as in, I knew it WAS cosplay) was Axel from Kingdom Hearts.
What is your favorite costume and why?
Ariel, just because I love portraying her! We have similar voices and features, so it's a match!
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
I'd love to do Giselle's wedding dress from Enchanted! And Ariel's pink dress.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Probably doing a photoshoot at my town in my Ariel costume! It was great to sing and have little kids be so excited to see Ariel wandering around!
Do you participate in masquerades?
What was your best masquerade experience?
The Resi skit we did! Zom-B-Gone!
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Not so far, though I may take part in Mays' as Ariel!
Tell us a little about yourself
Well, what can I say? I am 18 years old! I am an aspiring author, but I love to sing even MORE than writing, if you can believe that! I hope to make my living performing as an artist or writer someday, but for now, I work as an assistant editor and part-time writer! I occassionally do some performances, too!
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
