Pike is a fan of cosplay, in which participants wear costumes to represent a character from anime, comic books, cartoons, video games or movies. After sitting as a body paint model for a friend, Pike realized she could still dress up without having to make a costume.

Pike refers to all her creations as her “little paint children”. She said it would be boring and lonely to do the painting without an audience.

“At the end, it’s a little sad to wash it off”, she says.
