What got you into cosplay?
Halloween and Purim were (and still are) my favourite holidays. When I was little, I loved dressing up in costumes. Going to my first con (Anime USA 2004) and seeing all the awesome cosplay brought that love back. :D
What was your first costume and why?
Monkey D. Luffy from One Piece. It was a simple costume, perfect for when I was learning to sew.
What is your favorite costume and why?
Apollo Justice~! I don't think I've had more fun in a costume pre-Apollo since those Halloween parades in elementary school.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Belle (yellow ball gown), Sailor Mercury
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Just getting to meet new people at conventions, and getting to cosplay with my best pal. So many good memories, it's hard to choose one!
