What got you into cosplay?
At first I was just into Goth victorian, Lolita and J-fashion and eventually went on into cosplaying. I just think it's interesting with the way that some people can put so much creativity into their costumes. I think it's just a great creative outlet for me..^.^
What was your first costume and why?
Aya Fujimiya from Weib Kreuz. I really love the anime.
What is your favorite costume and why?
Now It's my Bondage Alucard outfit..I put so much work into it and often believed that my theories on making it would not work half the time..but it did in the end..^.^
Castlevania Alucard is up there with it now!
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Lenneth Valkyrie from Valkyrie Profile with the full scale white wings. Maybe someday if I can learn how to make armor..T.T
or Vampire hunter D someday I hope..^.^. Lestat or one of the vampires from the Anne rices novels would be awesome..^.^
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
It's hard to choose..I think there's pretty much a memorable moment that could be linked to all my cosplays..^.^.
Do you participate in masquerades?
What was your best masquerade experience?
Going on-stage with my sis as Aya and Omi at Ikkicon for my very first walk on..^.^. I remember how nervous I was and how fast my heart was beating hehehe. Luckily I don't get as nervous now..^.^

Tell us a little about yourself
I'm kinda shy though I tend to break out of my shell just a bit when I go to cons! I go to college and know a little japanese, hiragana, katakata and some kanji . I hope to get better one day^.^;..My hobbies would be cosplaying, video games, anime, going out to dance, manga and listening to goth/industrial music.
I also love to sew cosplays though I prefer sewing by hand when I can or if time permits.
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
