About Me / Q&A

What got you into cosplay?
I've always enjoyed arts, crafts, and handiwork - so the idea of cosplay always appealed to me. When I learned that one of my coworkers (Tassie) had attended cons and done some cosplay I dragged her back into the hobby. But, I don't think she minded too much.
What was your first costume and why?
My first costume was Luppi of Bleach. I was a huge fan of the arrancar costumes. The black on white just looks so sharp. Plus, a certain livejournal community had me craving the crack which the arrancar arc so steadily provides. Since I'm short Luppi was one of my top choices from the start. In the end there were 2 things that sold me on Luppi. 1. His sleeves rock. 2. He had the guts to talk back to Aizen.
What is your favorite costume and why?
Well, so far I only have Luppi. But for what it's worth, I LOVED playing the cocky little punk!
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Currently, I'd have to say Guru Clef of Magic Knight Rayearth or Eidel from Princess Tutu. Both of those costumes have their challenges. With Clef, it's a level of detail which will take many months of hard work to achieve, and since I'm kinda trying to finish a Ph.D. right now it's kinda out of the question. Miss Eidel has gravity defying hair and clothing. I love her character, but I'd want to find some other Princess Tutu cosplayers before I commit to her.
Do you participate in masquerades?
I've been in one skit. It was lots of fun. We wrote a comedy script and I got to goof off on stage as Luppi. I was so excited when people actually laughed at it. It's too bad that no one got it on video - I would've liked to see the result.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Ha, I'm still a noob!
Tell us a little about yourself
I'm a graduate student, which is kinda like school and a job at the same time. The coolest thing about my line of work is that I'm vaccinated against just about everything there is a vaccine for. My immune system can beat up your immune system!!! >:3
My favorite anime
Princess Tutu, Bleach, Cowboy Bebop, Soul Eater
My favorite character(s)
I ususally don't play favorites, I either like a character or I don't. I do have a particular fondness for Kinomoto Sakura (of Cardcaptor Sakura). She's such a loving and well-mannered child. I hope any children I have are as kind and helpful as Sakura!
