Who on Earth is Angela Nicole Chu?
Howdy, y’all! Welcome to my corner of the Interwebz. My name is Angela Nicole Chu (alias “AngieChu”), and I am a writer, wellness guru, cosplayer, and gymrat from Louisville, Kentucky. The creative arts have always been my one true passion ever since I was a wee tot. I was influenced early on by true crime mysteries, medical whatsits, and general nerdism, and these can all be seen with my work. Have fun!
How old are you?
I am currently 29-years-old. My birthday is June 27th, 1990 🙂
What is your ethnicity?
Born and raised in the good ol’ USA, but I am Nigerian, Irish, Ghanian, French, and Shawnee Native American 🙂
According to 23&Me, I also have small amounts of Spanish and Chinese in me 😮
What do you do in your free time?
If I am not writing, working out, or prepping a cosplay, I can generally be found on my couch playing either my Nintendo Switch or my Xbox 360. I also love to go hiking with friends, riding roller coasters, and attending concerts!
Do you have any piercings or tattoos?
I have four tattoos: a peace-heart on my left wrist, the quote “Life Has Many Doors” from Ed, Edd ‘n’ Eddy up my left forearm, a Pikachu with balloons on my right wrist, and the quote “…and in this moment, I am happy~” from Incubus’s Wish You Were Here on my left bicep. I plan to get many more in the near future.
I have six piercings: a 2g spiral in each earlobe, a 16g hoop in each earlobe, a 14g industrial bar in my right ear cartilage, and a 14g banana bar in my belly button! There’s not many more piercings that I want actually 😮
What music do you listen to?
My one true love is late 90s – early 2000s alternative rock, but I also enjoy jazz, swing, K-pop, 90s pop, EDM, and pop punk! My favourite artists include Incubus, 30 Seconds To Mars, Chevelle, Little Big, Michelle Branch, Smile Empty Soul, BTS, Good Charlotte, Skrillex, and Cab Calloway.
What television shows do you enjoy?
I actually don’t watch a lot of TV! I used to in my youth, but I’m honestly too busy now. The only shows that I keep up with (thank God for Sling TV DVR) are The Challenge, Pretty Little Liars, LetterKenny, WWE RAW/SmackDown/NXT.
What games do you like to play?
My favourite series are Dance Dance Revolution, Saints Row, and the Pokemon RPGs. There are also soft spots in my heart for Bully, Jet Set Radio, Crazy Taxi, Fallout: New Vegas, The Fractured But Whole, Snowboard Kids 2, and Left 4 Dead.
What was your first cosplay?
My first cosplay was Sailor Mars! I put her together in about three-days’ time with absolutely no clue what I was doing and wore her at ColossalCon 2008!
Who is your favourite character to cosplay as?
Either Kai’Sa, Moana, or the Deckers Specialist from Saints Row: The Third. Both of them are just so much fun, and I love those cosplays!
