What got you into cosplay?
My friend asked me to go to a convention with her because she knew I was into Anime. I borrowed her L cosplay and I had way to much fun so I decided it was time to get my own cosplay.
What was your first costume and why?
Mello from Death Note was my first costume, because when I started cosplaying I was obessed with Death Note, and I loved Mello's look and style.
What is your favorite costume and why?
I really love my Amber Sweet, Princess Tutu, and Batwoman cosplay! Amber I love because Repo! is one of my favorite movies, and a lot of work went into her. I love Tutu because Ive been a dancer my whole life, plus I love when I get to use rhinestones in a costume! And Batwoman because she is my favorite character ever!
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Alice from Batwoman Elegy and Cinderella/Belle :)
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Meeting Terrance Zdunich as Amber Sweet at Zonacon 2009 was AMAZING.
Do you participate in masquerades?
Not really, only 2 costume contests and 2 skits. I hope to enter more though :)
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Best Novice at EXPcon with Mami Tomoe!
Tell us a little about yourself
Right now, I work in character entertainment at Walt Disney World! I love my job! I competitively dance and currently my studio is #5 in the nation (Starz Dance Galaxy) and I also teach ballet there!
