What got you into cosplay?
I love dressing up as my favorite characters, or basically anything that looks pretty cool. Characters from various series have inspired me to recreate those outfits.
What was your first costume and why?
Summoner Yuna, because at the time I was infatuated with Japan, and I loved her pseudo Kimono.
What is your favorite costume and why?
Lightning from Final Fantasy XIII, I spent three months working on her and got her completed long before FF13 was even released in Japan, I drilled it down to every last detail. It's my favorite because Lightning is so strong and fights for her sister Serah.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
All costumes are dream costumes.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Right now, EXP Con 09. The most epic con I have been to yet.
Do you participate in masquerades?
What was your best masquerade experience?
Jacon 2008, even though I left early.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Kind of. I was featured in Cosmode Issue 32, which was a reward in itself. Then I won a poster on 1up.com of FFXIII signed by the producers, because I posed in my costume.
