What got you into cosplay?
When I saw pictures of people in Zelda related costumes. I became interested, and found this website.
What was your first costume and why?
Tetra, because it was an extremely easy cosplay to put together. I also liked her character in Wind Waker.
What is your favorite costume and why?
Link has always been my favorite and most comfortable cosplay to wear.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Wolf and Oni Link from Zelda. Darkrai from Pokemon. Centaur Man, Fire Man, Elec Man, Tornado Man, Quick Man, and Cut Man from Mega Man. Probably something from Kingdom Hearts. Pit from Kid Icarus.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
AnimeNEXT 08, my very first con, was definitely the most memorable by far. I met awesome cosplayers, got pictures with them, and had LOTS of fun.
Do you participate in masquerades?
I don't, but I always envision myself up there on stage...
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
I haven't entered any contests yet.
Tell us a little about yourself
My name is Cheyenne. People just call me Chey for short. I am 17, and I am a musician, an artist, and an old school gamer. In my free time, I'm either playing games, practicing music, attempting to draw, or doing school work. I also like to go bird watching on a daily basis. I play lots of video game music from Zelda and Mega Man mainly. I can currently play the recorder, the piano, the panflute, and the Zelda ocarina. My side hobbies include: fishing, swimming, and plant care.
I often get inspired to create cosplays, but I'm a very lazy and slow-paced person. Not having a sewing machine also makes cosplays take four times longer to complete. Being a perfectionist also contributes to my cosplay construction delays.
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
I am a very diligent student. I work very hard at school maintaining my grades. That's why I don't have a whole lot of time to do the things I want to do, like creating cosplays. I currently attend MOA, a program from Fort Pierce Westwood High School. My school focuses solely around marine biology - so basically the sciences. It is what you would call an "advanced" school. Academic standards are higher than those of other schools, which is why many of my peers have left MOA.
