What made you want to be apart of the creepypasta fandom? Also, how did you meet Mr. Creepypasta?
well I like scary stories and movies. and I’m talking scary, not gorey, like all blood and guts - that’s just a gimmick - but true horror. And I was looking for real ghost videos on youtube, and stumbled upon a few scary stories that were read. But they all had one thing in common, no visuals.
I went to school for film and video, took a year for animation, minored in electronic imaging (digital graphic design), so I cornered the niche. Everyone else had slowly moving images waving back and forth - I had full on animation.
I met @mrcreepypasta through a mutual friend at the time, and I fangirled when I was introduced. But soon after, we clicked when we both discovered our love for Cowboy Bebop and Ghostbusters.
I believe we were in a call together in 2012, and he made a general announcement about something we were going to be working on or something, and he wanted to make sure we all were listening, and after I made the comment:
“OK, important safety tip. thanks, Egon.” He erupted in laughter, and we’ve been good friends ever since.
I’ve been extremely fortunate to have MCP as one of my closest friends. I have had many opportunities thrown at me, and they are all because of him. From voice acting work, to networking, to going to my first comicon, to being in a book, to marrying him and @creepy-rainbow-pasta (seriously, I was the officiant at their wedding), and this April, I’ll get to cross off another bucket list item - being a part of a Con Panel at NoBrandCon.
I’m REALLY excited.
