What got you into cosplay?
I had been planning to cosplay since high school, but I never had the money for it until recently.
What was your first costume and why?
My first true cosplay of a character was Tadase from Shugo Chara, though it still needs work as it was purchased online and the craftsmanship leaves much to be desired on the shorts. The costume has since been converted to Kukai Sohma from the same series as I don't have to wear a wig for Kukai.
What is your favorite costume and why?
State Alchemist, because I can easily run around in the miniskirt and most Roy Mustang cosplayers will make a comment about how all female officers should be in miniskirts.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Yes, but it's a secret for now.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Meeting a great trio of cosplayers from Final Fantasy VII Advent Children. Cloud, Aerith, and Reno. We're all friends now, and I'm actually getting more into the Final Fantasy games as well.
Do you participate in masquerades?
I haven't participated in any yet.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
