ILSN:  Tell us a little bit about yourself?  Do you have a mini bio about yourself?

Freddie Nova:  I’m just a really hyper chick who has never had the patience to even try to fit in with the “norm”. I’m an independent business woman with a pet care business by day/Action hero by night. I’m all about chasing dreams & running around in capes, spandex & armor happens to be one of em! 
ILSN:
What is the craziest story you could tell us?
620498_4412375476260_1628253743_oFreddie Nova: Freddie Nova:  That’s a WAY hard question when crazy is my everyday. I mean one day I made a passing comment on a photog’s FB page, the next day I bought a plain ticket, 4 days later I was a viral sensation as Venom. Surreal is just a thing with me.
ILSN:
Do you have any projects coming up?

Freddie Nova:  Always 🙂
Working on some pirate Disney characters, a new silicone Witchblade & planning one last symbiote shoot. Hope to rock Lagatha from Vikings one day as well.941634_557771394273697_923850795_n
ILSN:    Can you tell us your experience when you were on Comicbook men?
Freddie Nova:   Well i made it into a 3 day journey to visit Convention friends along the way since I had low expectations of filming so that way the trip would be fun no matter what. But overall I had fun when I got there, everyone BUT Walt was really nice. While I was hoping for a more stimulating conversion about comics or Cosplay, Walt steered it in a lame direction but I was happy the show was so well received.
ILSN:   Tell us about your website? ?
Freddie Nova:  Anyone is welcome to hit the “Follow” button on my personal page but to follow my costume progress, con experiences & general shenanigans, I JUST started a public page finally “Super Nova’s Costuming Guide to the Galaxy”.FreddieTLHow did you get into doing cosplay costumes?
Been reading comics for over 18 years, saw people dressed up at Cons & wanted to give it a try. After that I was hooked!
ISLN:   What inspires you when you choose characters?
Freddie Nova: First it was favorites, then I look for build challenges or characters I think I can pass for. I really love to transform into looking just like them & not recognizable as myself. That’s a far greater accomplishment.

ILSN:   Marvel vs DC vs Anime?
Freddie Nova:  I equally enjoy Marvel & older DC. But if you see what I Cosplay, you can tell I prefer independents.
Not an anime fan at all (sorry, just not my bag)superman_2 copy
ILSN:    What was your childhood like growing up?
Freddie Nova:  I was lonely, black-sheep type, so my imagination & creative side excelled as a result
ILSN:    Where do you see yourself five years from now?
Freddie Nova:  OLD! I’m already 32, I honestly don’t know that i’ll be cosplaying past 35 but still plan to hit occasional conventions & really want to get back to writing my own Graphic Novel
ILSN:   What do you do to inspire yourself?
Freddie Nova:  I don’t stress the little things in life, I am hyper & hate sitting still, so I do things to stay active & productive. Cosplay is a great outlet if you just do it for fun.10505438_10202452303411282_2471192532297603114_n
ILSN:  What do you like to do for fun?
Freddie Nova:  COSPLAY!  Workout, play with zoo of creatures, make Rockwear, accessories, collect useless crap, listen to music & I love cooking.934743_10202440216989129_5902391029990349857_n

ILSN:  is there anything you are promoting right now?
Freddie Nova:  Just to keep an eye out for the new Lady Death when it comes out. Hoping to have accessories available for sale in future but not there yet
10356307_10202212726302004_5103801576093151026_nILSN:    What is the nerdiest thing you have done?
Freddie Nova:  Not sure I could ever pinpoint one thing! What just popped in my head though was one time at a Steel City Con, a guy was selling an 8ft Millennium Falcon from when the original films were released & it was a ceiling display at Toys R Us. I geeked! I made him a cash offer, he accepted but was a really nice dude & asked how I was getting it home, I said my SUV & he was like “it won’t fit, it only fits into a 2 door commercial van & bigger. I was like “NOOOOOO!”. Went & measured my car, then spent next 24 hours trying to find a way to get it back  to my old house 2 1/2hrs away but there wasn’t a non-rapey priced way to do it. I was so sad panda 😦
ILSN:    Do people ever recognize you when you go out?
Freddie Nova:   Sometimes, but not too often. At conventions for sure but everyday life, it’s rare. Especially since i’m a master of disguise in costume.10290669_10201962380363512_3424997797803140985_n
INSL:   What is the craziest gift a fan has ever given you?
Freddie Nova:  Probably the squishy brain toy that felt like a sweaty ball sac.
ILSN:  What is the hottest costume you have ever worn?
Freddie Nova:  Probably Witchblade or Vampirella, I def felt naughty in them
ILSN:  Favorite food?
Freddie Nova: Chipotle & cupcakes!
