About Me / Q&A

What got you into cosplay?
Back my 7th or 8th grade year of middle school we had one of my childhood friends (mothers ex-friend's daughter) living with us. I had no idea what anime was at the time (though had watched it since I was little without knowing it). She really introduced me to anime and manga, letting me read some of her collection. Well when I entered high school she came back to visit and asked if I would like to attend a local convention, Animazement, with her and her brother. One thing led to another...I heard about people dressing up, but chose not to given it was so last minute. Granted, I didn't enjoy myself all that much but decided to try again the next year in costume. I had a blast and have gone every year since, rocking various costumes.
What was your first costume and why?
My first costume at an actual convention was Black Lady from Sailor moon. I had been looking around on ebay (yes, i know, bad.) and came across the beautifully made dress by a local seamstress. The costume was amazing, the wig I constructed....was horrifying. But it was a great first experience.
What is your favorite costume and why?
So far? It had to be Joker. Its comfortable, its detailed, its just an all out amazing costume to me. Though the lack of need of a wig may make me completely bias....
