"Last year I got to go to the San Diego Comic Con, which is one of the largest in this country," said D'Angelo. "I even got to participate in the big masquerade contest dressed up as Queen Etherea from the 'Venture Brothers'".
"Designing this was quite tricky since the character wears a super-revealing public decency defying costume," she said. "My illusion worked with a nude swimwear lining, white knit chiffon, and white plastic strategically placed strips."
D'Angelo graduated with a bachelor's degree in fashion merchandising and design from Marist College in Poughkeepsie, N.Y. She also attended one year at Dutchess County Community College.
"Marist is a high-ranking college with an exclusive and extensive (fashion) program, where one can do internships with famous designers. I got to do mine with Donna Karan," she said.
