What got you into cosplay?
I got into anime first and kind of shifted to cosplaying from there thanks to halloween and my annual attendance at Youmacon.
What was your first costume and why?
My first costume was Soubi from Loveless, I love the series and I did rather well with my soubi costume besides the wig's many faults...
What is your favorite costume and why?
That I have done would be Ariel, I am so mad that Miley Cyrus stole my cosplay...I am really excited about my troupe doing a possible batman themed cosplay though because it's a big thing among us as friends anyway...
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Currently Sophie Hatter...I plan on being a regular cosplayer of her...
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
My most memorable experience was absolutely the time my sisters and I went to the Disney store dressed as Ariel, Snow White and Belle and there was a little girl waiting in line. She had to have been no older than three but as soon as she saw us her eyes got huge and she tugged on her mom's sleeve exclaiming "I didn't know there would be real princesses here!". We all laughed because it was adorable and the little girl promptly put back the Cinderella costume her mother was waiting to buy and got a Belle one instead!
Do you participate in masquerades?
I tend not to only because I spend so much time on the actual costume that I never have time to figure out anything interesting for masquerade and I am too much of a show girl to just walk out and curtsy...
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Youmacon 2010 Hall Cosplay...I got a T-shirt ;)
