Hi Kayt it is a pleasure to feature you on SimplySxy. Please share with our readers a little about yourself and where you’re from?
I’m 28 years old, living in New Jersey (right outside of NYC). I’m currently in school getting my RN and for work, I’m a nanny to two boys. I also work in nightlife in NYC with a performance team as a dancer and circus performer.
What do you love about cosplay?
I love being able to transform into my favorite characters. I got my first bachelors degree in theater, so performance of any kind has always been something I enjoyed. Cosplay allows me to take skills from all performance aspects that I’ve been fortunate enough to learn and create my own art. I have also been incredibly lucky to find some of my best friends through cosplay and the only thing that makes a hobby more enjoyable is when you are doing that hobby with friends.
Which is your most memorable cosplay experience to date?
I think New York Comic Con 2016 was my most memorable cosplay experience. I had just debuted my first Gwenom cosplay in the tunnel (where most photographers set up and all of the cosplayers met for photos) and I received such an overwhelming response from everyone. This was also my big “coming out” in the cosplay world after taking a very long break. I received some of the most amazing photos back from the first day and I made a ton of connections with people I now work with throughout the year in NYC.
Is there an experience everyone should try at least once in their life?
I am firm believer that everyone should travel as much as they can. I work full time and go to school, so I understand the struggle for money and the struggle of just taking time for yourself. Before I went back to school for nursing, I took a few years just working and performing. I was fortunate enough to travel for performances. I got to perform in Salt Lake City, Las Vegas, Austin, Maryland, and Barbados all within the same year. I met so many amazing people and learned so much about myself in that time traveling. Not only did I get to see these amazing places, but I got to work at music festivals and events where I met other performers and musicians that I had looked up to. It’s very humbling getting to see that someone you idolize is just as human as you.
Which fictional character do you wish was real?
I’m a HUGE Harry Potter fan. So if Harry could be real, or any of them really, then it would confirm my belief that my Hogwarts letter was really lost after all.
What motto do you live by?
“Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind.”
When people tell you that you go through a ton of changes throughout your 20s, they aren’t lying. The older I get, the more comfortable I am in my skin. The older I get, I realize it doesn’t matter if my stomach isn’t perfectly flat in every photo or if my face doesn’t look “modely” enough. The more I do the things I love, I don’t feel like I’m missing out on things I see that other people are doing. The more I surround myself with the people that support me (no matter how weird I can be at times), the fuller my heart feels and the more I’m assured I am right where I belong.
If you could describe yourself as a flavor, what will it be?
I don’t really know what flavor I would be. Maybe something sweet. But then maybe something a little more sour at times. Depends on the day 😛
What do you find attractive in the opposite sex?
Sense of humor is number one. Laughter truly is the best medicine and with the stress of school and work, sometimes I REALLY need to laugh. Next is confidence. There is nothing more attractive than someone who is confident with who they are and (to take my number one into account) can laugh at themselves. (Because, let’s face it, none of us are perfect.)
Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions Kayt. One question before we end, how do you define “sexy”?
My answer is going to sound redundant, but sexy to me is someone confident enough to laugh at themselves and make other people laugh. Someone who can leave an impression on a room full of people that they have never met before is so incredibly sexy and someone who understands the importance of honesty and respect. (Whether within a sexual relationship or just a friendship.)
