What got you into cosplay?
Well, ever since I remember, when I was playing Video Games or watching Anime, I'd just say to myself sometimes "Man, it'd be cool to have clothes like that." Then one day I found Cosplay.com, looked at a bunch of pictures, heard about Otakon 2004 from a customer at one of my former jobs, registered, and then bang, something clicked and I wanted to make some costumes.
What was your first costume and why?
Squall Leonhart from Final Fantasy VIII. I figured he would be easy to pull since my hair length was almost the same and people said I looked like him, but oh MAN, the costume was so ghetto. I had so much fun though.
What is your favorite costume and why?
It's a tie between Cloud Strife from Final Fantasy VII and Kamina from Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann.
Cloud is one of them because I just love his character and he's always been one of my favorite Video Game characters, so when I was able to begin cosplaying him thanks to some help from a few good people, it felt awesome. I wanted to do it years ago when I was in middle school, so when I got the ability to do so in 2005, I jumped on it.
Kamina is the other because the love I have for Gurren Lagann is ENDLESS. Just to walk around wearing some awesome looking sunglasses and sporting an awesome full body tattoo is massive fun.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
I have several:
- Sol-Badguy from Guilty Gear
- Brooklyn from Gargoyles
- Dart from Legend of Dragoon
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
- Attending Anime Expo 2006 and being part of Lionboogy's Fenrir project.
- Viva La Resistance skit at Katsucon 2008
- Gundam Wing Footloose at Katsucon 2009
Do you participate in masquerades?
Yes. I participate in masquerades every now and then. My very first masquerade was Katsucon 2006.
What was your best masquerade experience?
