What got you into cosplay?
My friend wanted to cosplay for Sakura Con, and wanted me and some other people to go. My mom has always made these beautiful costumes for another convention she goes to, and so I thought it would be fun to do something like that too.
What was your first costume and why?
Mint Aizawa. My friends got together and since there were five of us we decided to do Tokyo Mew Mew, since it's fairly well known and their costumes didn't seem too complicated.
What is your favorite costume and why?
Dawn. It's a comfy costume, and I can wear it outside of conventions.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Rosa from FFIV... it'll be hard and time consuming, but someday I want to make it =D
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
While cosplaying as Dawn walking around a mall near by Kumoricon with my friend as Ash, a Misty cosplayer went up to us and said "Ash!!! You're cheating on me!" xD It made my day.
Tell us a little about yourself
I'm a music teacher a violinist! In the rare times I'm not doing something for work or at a rehearsal on violin, I often will be found playing FFXIV or watching Netflix! I usually make a costume a year for Sakura Con in Seattle, where I get to hang out with long-time friends and fangirl over well done cosplays!
