What got you into cosplay?
Funny story that. It was actually my friends mom who was like "You guys like that anime stuff, don't you? There's this 'anime festival' near where I work, you should go."
So a couple of friends and I ended up at AnimeNext 2004.
What was your first costume and why?
Lulu, from FFX. I didn't really know much about the game at the time, but my friend lent it to me, and I thought the character was really cool. With some help (aka a LOT) from my mom I managed to put together an actually fairly decent cosplay. Haha. Aside from the metal mouth.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
There's a lot of costumes I'd love to make. Romeo in his armor from RomeoXJuliet, Rosa Farrell from FFIV. Akroma the Angel of Wrath.
My favorite anime
Black Lagoon, Claymore, RomeoXJuliet, Cowboy Bebop, Zoids, Hellsing (and Hellsing Ultimate), Elfen Lied, Haibane Renmei, Higurashi no Naku Koro ni, Soul Eater, Ghost in the Shell, pretty much everything by Miasaki. All that comes to mind at the moment.
