What got you into cosplay?
I got into cosplay by seeing an image of Jan Kurotaki cosplaying. It seems so long ago, but the image really inspired me to want to cosplay too. My obsession with the anime, manga, fashion and cosplay just grew from there.
What was your first costume and why?
My first costume was Gaara from Naruto. He always fascinated me, there was so much more to him than a hard exterior. And I knew there was a reason too, so even from the beginning I loved him the most out of all the characters.
What is your favorite costume and why?
My favorite would have to be the one I call, "Oops I forgot my pants at home."
It was a mixture of japanese street styles and such. I wish I had taken pictures of myself before I left the house to my first con. I tried to look for the ones people took at the con but...no luck.
The top of the costume was a black formal-ish jacket that was at a short dress length. It had gold trim on it with white lace peeking from underneath the sleeves. The buttons were gold and went all the way down. The collar was formal, kind of a piratey touch with a white collar sticking out from underneath. The bottoms were a pair of white bloomers! No pants :P because the top was more like a dress type. I wore knee high black socks and platform mary janes.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Hmm...my dream costume would be Ikuto from Shugo Chara. But I'm not tall enough! (I'm very short) Waahh! *sob*
But since height is an issue with me my dream costume would be Takuto from Full Moon. (I think I have a thing for neko now that I think about it o_o;) Hehe
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Well I wouldn't say it's a good memorable cosplay experience but it's sure memorable lol. I spent HOURS on my Naruto costume and I had a little break, went upstairs to get some juice. And when I went back downstairs one of my animals chewed through my jacket! I ended up not cosplaying on Halloween...I just threw on some of my regular gothi-chan (my knickname) clothes and went out. No one would have guessed!
Do you participate in masquerades?
I don't think I've been to a masquerade actually *blush*
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
I'm wayyy to shy to enter any of my costumes! No skits or fashion shows for me, I'd probably trip, faint, freeze or worse.
Tell us a little about yourself
Of course the one thing you'd expect me to say is, I LOVE ANIME. I honestly do. And I love BJDs. I own a Delf El named Loki, he's so precious to me. I'd never take him to a con though, I'm too scared that something would happen to him.
And I have to admit I am a yaoi lover. But please don't judge me, I am not judgemental myself. I am a very VERY open person and accept everyone. My heart has room for everyone =)
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
Um... I love sushi?
