Meet Tiffany "MzzSkittles"
If I were to introduce you to people what name do you go by?
What's a quote/motto you like to follow?
In life: “What defines us is how well we rise after falling.”
In Cosplay: “Cosplay your way”
Are you a Cosplayer or Utility (Photographer, Graphic Artist, Foamsmith, 3D Designer, Seamstress, MUA, Hairstylist, Gamer, Cosplaying Sex Worker, etc) and for how long?
Before becoming a cosplayer I had always considered myself an artist. I am a full-time Graphic Designer but that is just my favorite medium to work in. I have been cosplaying since 2017. Now, I would not consider myself a seamstress but I do make and build most, if not all my full cosplays.
Tell Us About You
Well, I’m a lifetime blerd enthusiast, Graphic Designer/Artist and DM(V) based Cosplayer. I am a Co-Founder of Urban Anime Lounge and a Co-Host of The Blerd Spectrum Podcast. My favorite fandom would probably have to be Anime general speaking but I am huge Marvel Comics stan. But I dabble in pretty much every fandom I have a favorite somewhere. In fact, a lot of them have had a major influence on how I’ve moved through my life. For example, Sailor Moon is the reason why I started drawing and then Final Fantasy is the reason why I decided to pursue a career in art. Initially wanting to be a game art designer and then finding my passion for graphic design. PreCOVID I traveled a lot (I miss it so much) and music is life.
What are your fandoms/ favorite communities to be apart of?
Favorite Fandoms: Anime, I would say I’m definitely a Shonen head! Moonie for life tho!!! Video Games: Mortal Kombat and Final Fantasy. Comics: Marvel all day but Batman and Harley Quinn are baes!! But also special shoutout to Tuskegee Heirs, Black Sands Comics and Stranger Things Comics. I’m going to stop here because I could go on forever.
What future goals would you like to accomplish. Which ones have you accomplished so far?
In life, working for myself has always been ultimate goal. As a cosplayer, my only goal is to share my creativity with others and show people of all ages like me that it’s ok to be unapologetically blerd and proud. As a black business owner, I hope to continue to build on a brand that identifies as a close knit family and a safe space where black geek culture it’s normalized, accepted and celebrated.
