What got you into cosplay?
I love the great designs, and I love fantastic characters. It also became a great way to meet new friends.
What was your first costume and why?
Well, I remember dressing up as Sonic the Hedgehog when I was really little. Other than silly costumes like that when I was a kid (I dressed up as Ash and Harry Potter XD), my first costume was Luke fon Fabre from Tales of the Abyss. I was originally going to be Sheena or Colette from Tales of Symphonia, but a friend and I decided that we wanted to be Luke and Asch.
What is your favorite costume and why?
Ivan from Golden Sun. I love his character, the costume is incredibly comfortable, and--CAPE! Capes make everything better.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Hikaru Shidou from Magic Knight Rayearth -- her outfit in the second manga series on the cover. (The one with the pink cape. Because CAAAAPE.)
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
After leaving the Ouran shoot at AUSA '09, a bunch of us accidentally lined up behind one another at the Steve Blum autograph line. It was an awesome coincidence for us all to end up together again when we had no idea we all would get in line within a few moments of each other!
Tell us a little about yourself
I'm going to Ithaca College; I'm majoring in journalism, minoring in history and writing. Writing consumes my life. When I'm not writing things for class, I'm writing for the magazine on campus, posting on my blog, or writing short stories and novels. My dream is to become a journalist for a video game magazine or any other techie mag. I'm also pretty sure that I'm gonna be poor and living in a cardboard box.
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
If you ever want to ask me something or just talk, feel free to send me a message!
