Sarahndipity hasn’t been cosplaying long, but in the 2-3 years she’s been doing this she’s already cultivated a wonderful community of support. There’s a uniqueness to what she does that just pulls you in. From popular Marvel heroes like Miles Morales & Domino to lesser-known heroes from Dungeons and Dragons podcasts, Sarahndipity executes her cosplays perfectly, sometimes even using Tik Tok to truly step into the character and create some hilarious content. She’s quickly become one of my absolute favorite cosplayers and it was an absolute joy to sit with her.
Explain your cosplay name
I like words that have the sound of my name, and putting my name in. Serendipity is one of my favorites so when I made my page that just sounded good. It’s essentially a pun.
Where did the idea to do cosplay with tik tok come from?
I saw people doing it and it looked like a fun time so I figured I’d give it a try
What is The Adventure Zone?
The Adventure Zone is a podcast from the McElroy family. It’s them playing Dungeons & Dragons but not really knowing what they’re doing. They end up telling a great, and very funny, story.
Ok, please explain your love for survivor?
It’s a really interesting game. If I ever got the chance to be on the show I’d love it, it’s so well put together.
Alright, so I’m gonna let your mind play for a second. My Hero Academia: Survivor. Students only, whose winning, and whose voted off first?
The first person out would be Koji because he lacks social skills, and the winner would probably be either Momo or Invisible Girl.
So according to twitter you do D&D. What’s your character?
I have a lot of characters, making characters is really fun.
Have you listened to Wonderwall yet?
I finally did, but I wasn’t impressed. I feel like it’s been overhyped cause of the meme for it. I probably would like it if I’d heard it earlier in my life.
Who was the first character you cosplayed?
Officially, it would’ve been Emerald RWBY.
What got you into cosplay?
The Peter Pan actor from Disney Parks that went super viral on tumblr a few years back. It made me want to work there as Jasmine and after seeing some incredible Jasmine I cosplayers I finally made a costume when I got invited to Colossalcon a few years back.

The apocalypse has come and you can have a survival squad made up of you, one god tier character, and two characters you’ve cosplayed
That’s actually a really hard one. Let’s say Shigaraki, Domino, and Deadpool. A villian, and 2 mercenaries. Shigaraki could defend well turning everything to dust, Domino’s luck would definitely help, and Deadpool’s humor would keep morale up.
3 Breakfast Essentials
What new skills have you learned since pursuing cosplay?
Before this, I didn’t know how to use a sewing machine, but after getting one as a gift from my high school home ec teacher and watching some YouTube tutorials I figured it out. I also learned building and constructing with foam and wires.
What’s your favorite thing about cosplay?
Getting to be creative, and figuring out how to make things work since I usually make my cosplays, and of course, portraying the character.
As a black woman, what is your dream cosplay?
I don’t know at the moment, because it used to be Jasmine, but I did that.
What’s your dream?
I want to do something creative, probably being a writer since that’s what I study, but as long as I’m being creative and enjoying it that’s what I want.
Do you know how dope you are?
Well, I don’t know. I guess that’s pretty cool to hear. Thank you.
Writer, cosplayer, gamer, survivor, regardless of the medium, Sarahndipity is a true creative, and I’m eager to see what she’ll create next. She seems almost fearless and unbelievably driven, facing challenges head on, learning whatever skills she needs to overcome new obstacles. She’s an inspiration.
