About Me / Q&A

What got you into cosplay?
I'd heard that everybody dressed up at cons so I thought it'd be fun. Since I didnt know how elaborate costumes got I made a Sally Po costume.
What was your first costume and why?
Sally Po, it was supper easy. I really liked Gundam Wing and I could pull of her hair with no problem. I didnt have any real sewing skills at that point so I jsut wanted to throw together a costume. I think only 2 people recognized me. ^^;;
What is your favorite costume and why?
Usually whatever I've made most recently. Sometimes Helena. Right now, Noin.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Not really, theres allot I'd like to make but nothing really sticks out. Check out my cosplaylab.com page if you wana see my in progress work.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Oh! I spent 2 hours on a paper mache wig for Ryoko and it collapsed. It was horrible. I ended up spending 10 hours on the monstrosity and I took home Crowd Favorite for out lil J-Pop dance.
Do you participate in masquerades?
Yup, I've been in a few.
What was your best masquerade experience?
At Anime Boston 2005 I had an awsome time. People kept coming up to me afterwards asking for a pic of me with the cookie.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
I got 2nd place for my Zelda and Link costumes at my high school's anime club's J-Pop dance(2003). I also recieved Crowd Favorite for Ryoko at a J-Pop dance (2004) held by the Upstate New York Cosplay Society. In 2005 a group of my friends and I made up a skit and entered in Genericon's masquerade. We won 1st place for skit... Granted we had no competition. 2006: Best in Show - Honorable Mention for a skit by Hailo, Mystic Blossom and I (Sailor Moon charactes). 2007: Honorable Mention for Rose Bride Juri at Anime Next 2008: Honorable Mention for Rei Witch at Anime Next
