What got you into cosplay?
I can't even remember...maybe, after reading the manga Dramacon, I looked into everything about anime conventions, and found out about cosplay that way.
What was your first costume and why?
Toon Link from Legend of Zelda. In eighth grade me and my best friend (she was Toon Zelda) decided to correspond our Halloween costumes. I think it was somewhat of a disaster, because the actual making of the costumes was incredibly last minute, and neither of us wore wigs. *Sigh...
What is your favorite costume and why?
Haruhi Suzumiya. :D It's comfortable and I feel very natural in it. I love screaming at my Kyon--my boyfriend--and people at cons think it's funny. :P
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Asuka. Plugsuit. :D
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
My first photoshoot. I ran into some of the photographer's friends by chance, and they got me and my Shinji together with him. We learned he was a huge Evangelion fan! :D It just made the whole experience so much better.
Tell us a little about yourself
I'm a senior in high school. I have two parents (still married) and two older brothers. I've lived in Georgetown (a suburb of Austin, TX) my whole life. Besides cosplaying, I enjoy watching anime, reading manga, playing video games (including visual novels,) writing, going to conventions dancing, hanging out with my friends, and listening to music. I also enjoy spending time with my boyfriend, Preston, who is also an anime fan and who I cosplay with often. I wish to one day be a prosthetist, or if that doesn't work out, an occupational therapist or maybe something in emergency medicine (like a paramedic!) but I know for sure I want to go into medicine. My father is the pastor at our Presbyterian church in town that I grew up in and my mother is a stay-at-home mom. That being said, I'm a Christian, and no, I'm not going to shove my beliefs down your throat.
