OhHeyTracy & the Cosplay Community
When did you get into cosplay?
I got into cosplay around 2014, pretty late in the game really.
What got you into cosplay?
My biggest influence was centered on this idea that I, for all my life, was the proud little nerdy girl who made her own band shirts, tutus, comic book accessories, and of course Halloween costumes- but why did I have to always wait for Halloween? With all the characters I loved it would be impossible to dress up as all of them with that kind of limit. I started seeing more cosplayers and said fuck it, I’m going to dress up every damn day.
3) What do you like the most about the cosplay community?
I think my favorite part about this community is how supportive everyone is. We hype eachother up on the daily, I see cosplayers and I don’t bother to look at their following I just go on a hype-man spree lol I want them to know their effort is noticed because It feels great when people do that same for me. We meet at cons and it’s like a family of cheerleaders, we are just excited to connect on this mutual love.
Who is your favorite character to be? Why?
Right now, my current favorite is Velma from Scooby Doo strictly because its so easy to play around with it and she’s someone I grew up feeling connected to. I loved her focus on learning and I found her to be the most visually interesting on the show- id wear that outfit every day in a heartbeat. But I also love the girls from My Hero Academia, especially Nejire and Camie, so you see A LOT of that on my feeds.
Who is your favorite superhero? Why?
So im definitely more of a villain person lol I always found them wayyy more interesting. But if I had to choose it’d be Zatanna from DC comics. I love a girl with insane amounts of power to the point many would fear her- is that bad? She’s great, im shocked I haven’t cosplayed her yet I should get on that.
What is your favorite version of Harley Quinn?
I’m a huge fan of Arleen Sorkin’s takes on Harley from Batman the Animated Series, Batman Beyond’s Return of the Joker to Gotham Girls. When people do a Harley impression- they are doing Arleen’s Harley, its just that iconic even years down the line.
What is your favorite video game?
It’s a tie between the Fable series and Dragon Age Inquisition. I’m a sucker for an immersive story I can follow for years on end, fully absorbed by the lore and character relationships.
What music do you like?
I listen to a mix but my usual go-to genres are a bunch of different rock genres, alternative stuff, lo fi hip hop, and a lot of 90s throwbacks. My current tops on spotify are A perfect Circle, Burbank, Siouxsie and the Banshees, The Distillers, Ashnikko, Pixies and FKA Twigs.
Projects, Stories, and Pillow Talk
Do you like to cosplay in the bedroom?
Yes I do lol I hoard lingerie costumes a lot, I think time in the bedroom should always be fun. I know the cosplay doesn’t always stay on long but it’s a fun tease to welcome your partner as their favorite characters in lingerie or cook in that while they wait.
How tall are you?
If we met in person, would you have a pillow fight with me?
We can try. I talk a lot of shit for a 5’3’ brat who pouts for everything. I might lose- but god ill talk a lot of shit on my way down lol
Any funny or scandalous convention stories that you would like to share?
This will sound horrible but not really lol 90% of my time at conventions is just drinking with my friends. I think the most scandalous thing is how often I scope out any food vendors selling dippin dots and how much I can inhale before I'm sick. If anything, the weird shit always happens to my friends and I'm always rescuing them. I mean i get drunk and run around like an asshole but don't we all?
What exciting projects are you currently working on?
Right now, I’m on a cosplay binge since starting my only fans. I think this is the most I’ve ever cosplayed- I’m constantly trying to think of creative twists to spice up a look. I’m also streaming a lot more on twitch, usually just drinking and laughing with everyone which I love. My community and I are the ultimate trolls lol we just laugh at each other and talk about everything imaginable. And this isn’t a project but im telling the world- I GOT A KITTEN. There is no follow up there im just really fucking excited lol
