Regina The Evil Queen (Once Upon A Time) Gallery


With the Season 4 finale of the ABC television series Once Upon A Time airing this Sunday (May 10th), it seems like the perfect opportunity to showcase my Evil Queen costume. Regina is the Evil Queen from the classic story Snow White. She has banished all of the fairy tale characters to a town called Storybrooke which resides in our world. As if being banished wasn't bad enough, all of our heroes have also been mind wiped and don't remember who they are thus ripping away their happy endings. Regina holds the position of Mayor over the town thus "ruling" them. Seasons 1-3 can currently be viewed on Netflix while Season 4 is streaming on Hulu. Regina is ruthless, sexy and smart. She doesn't let anyone stand in her way and has no problem voicing what she thinks, no matter how brutal.  Below is a gallery of my Regina costume and her Storybook alias, Mayor Mills. You may also notice some other Once characters in the photos ;)

Why The Disney Princesses with Realistic Waistlines Movement is Nonsense

Photo credit: BuzzFeed
There have been several articles circulating on the internet criticizing the bodies of Disney Princesses. The first one popped up in October 2014 on BuzzFeed and there have been many more ever since. Many people claim that the princesses weight is not realistic and projects a bad image to young girls around the world thus leading to low self esteem and eating disorders. The articles are all accompanied by photo shopped images straight from  Walt Disney films featuring "Realistic Waistlines".


So let me get this straight; in cartoons featuring mermaids, magic spells, talking animals, poison apples and fairy god mothers, you are complaining about realism and are targeting the princesses weight? Seriously?

Jillian's Cure

This is Jillian. She has a disease called ADOA (Autosomal Dominant Optic Atrophy) which involves vision loss, hearing loss, disturbances in the nerves used for muscle movement and sensation, and muscle weakness. Jillian has been given an estimation of being blind before her sixth birthday, and she’s currently very close to turning five years old. They say her hearing will be gone as a pre-teen as well. ADOA affects every child differently, so there are many who aren’t as fortunate to have their senses as long as Jillian has. ADOA is one of the most under-funded and under-researched causes that there is, and I’ve been working with Jillian’s family to help raise awareness about the cause and the efforts that are finally being put into place so that research can begin for the sake of Jillian and all others like her. Please help me spread the word by sharing this post and also following her journey on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/JilliansCure/) for more information on ADOA, as well as opportunities that you may have to assist in aiding the research efforts so that a cure can be found sooner rather than later.

Having The Courage To Cosplay Whoever You Want

Photo by Green House Photography
As a Puerto Rican girl from Philadelphia I have been told numerous times on what I "can't" do. It started early on in my childhood because I was told Hispanics could not accomplish anything. I was expected to drop out of school, join a gang, get pregnant at 16 and other stereotypes. I was even told I was brown eyed (even though my eyes are clearly green). Gender also played a part. I wasn't suppose to read comic books because I was a girl. I shouldn't be collecting action figures or wearing comic themed t-shirts. I was weak because males are the stronger sex. These criticisms often came from strangers, kids on the playground or classmates. Teachers have told me because I had "the face of an angel" I wasn't very smart. When I began costuming in 2006 I was told repeatedly by followers of cosplay (never from a cosplayer) that this was a hobby I should give up because there aren't many Latinos in geekdom. I couldn't do it. Supergirl isn't Puerto Rican. There are no Hispanic Final Fantasy characters. There is no Latina Disney Princess. Once again, I decided not to listen and had the courage to cosplay whoever I wanted. Along the way, I have encountered other individuals who do not let gender, race or weight stop them from portraying their favorite characters.
