Alexzandra Stoldt cosplays under the name Lilly Ruffles. She is a Lolita Model, Cosplayer, and Designer. Raised in Renaissance festivals and a Shakespearean atmosphere since she was born, Lilly feels at home when dressing up. Finding the Japanese street fashion named Lolita in 2012 she fell in love with it and has been designing clothes to fit the wide variety of themes under the Lolita name. Lilly has officially been cosplaying since 2013 but has been dressing in unique outfits since birth. Only in 2015 has Lilly finally touched Mistress of Snark's sewing machines as she was taught to hand sew since the beginning and can only operate a sewing machine at turtle speed.
Why do you like Lolita?
I like Lolita because it is about being cute but modest and because it isn't limited to just a pale pink frilly dress. You have everything from Gothic Lolita to Sweet Lolita
Why do you like Cosplay?
I like Cosplay because it is a second home to me. I have been dressing as characters from books or from my own imagination since birth. The word I first knew that meant dressing up in costumes was Dress Up, then it was Costume Time, now it is Cosplay.
Why do you only do a few con's a year?
I am a full time college student currently working towards two majors and two minors. Majors; Veterinarian and Marine Biology. Minors; Journalism and Communications.
Do you make every outfit?
No, I do not make every outfit. My family and I love to recycle and upcycle anywhere we can that includes for example: using vintage pants for the Cowgirl Pinkie Pie cosplay.
