What got you into cosplay?
When I was about eight years old, I was totally obsessed with the Zelda games. I liked all the characters outfits and personalities, and I thought it was a fun game. So, of course, since I loved zelda so much I just *had* to be link for Halloween. Of course, at the time, I didn't know I was cosplaying or anything like that, I just thought I was having fun running around in a green outfit. Now, of course, I realize that back then I was actually cosplaying. I cosplayed without knowing what I was doing from ages 8-11 and I've cosplaying and knew what I was doing from age 12 right up till now. So, overall, I've been cosplaying for about six years.
What was your first costume and why?
Like I said before, my first cosplay (or shall I say crossplay) was Link, from Zelda. I cosplayed as him because I loved Zelda and I loved Link.
What is your favorite costume and why?
I really love my Goddess Karin (Kamichama Karin) dress. It's poofy and pink and when I wear it I feel like a princess.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
I really want to make Reira's (From Nana) purple lily dress. Right now, I have the skill to make the dress, I just don't have the money. *Sighs* Being a student with almost no cash flow sucks.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Lemee think.... Oh! I know! One time me and some friends of mine were going to go to a local theme-park for the day, and we all decided we wanted to cosplay for that day and do a photoshoot at the park. It was great! Everyone was staring at us like we were on drugs and people kept taking our pictures with their cell phones!
Do you participate in masquerades?
No, not yet. I've wanted to participate in one for a long, long, long, time but for one reason or another, I haven't been able to.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
No, not yet. I hope that someday, after I have more experience as a cosplayer, that I will win at least one award.
Tell us a little about yourself
I'm currently a student who is going to be in ninth grade this August. I have no job, and my family is really strange. I play the Viola, Figure Skate, Draw, Swim, and Write.
