What got you into cosplay?
I loved the costumes in Anime/Manga and I learned how to sew. So I connected the pieces and began cosplaying. After that I heard of Anime convention and just keep making costumes.
What was your first costume and why?
Akamaru, because I was suppose to meet my partner (Kiba) at Sakura-con, but I couldn't find him. T_T It wasn't a fursuit but a human version of Akamaru.
What is your favorite costume and why?
Marluxia, because apparently I act just like him. Plus the wig I use looks like it's my real hair. It's fun going around anime convention or just on the streets acting like him. ^^
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Right now I'm trying to make a Shukaku (Gaara's demon from Naruto) outfit. It's very difficult with all the painting and sewing, plus I'm not used to using wiring (to keep the tail up and move it around for fun) but I'm determined to finish it.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
At Sakura-con, later day Saturday I changed into my Marluxia costume and my friends dragged me to the glomp circle. I've never been in one and neither had they, so it was new for our whole group. Apparently most people in the group luved Marluxia and would glomp me even if the bottle was pointing to someone else. It was so fun we stayed there for hours. The next day all of us were so sore from the glomp circle we had to leave the convention early because we were in so much pain. Or legs hurt for the rest of the week but I glomped and was glomped so many time my legs hurt for two weeks.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
I participated in the Anime Dating Game at Aki-con (2009) and all my answers were perfect for who I was cosplaying. I was a Female version of Marluxia. I won the game and got married.
At school we had a costume contest for halloween, in a club I was in. I didn't win an award but a piece of candy instead, and just because I made my whole outfit.
Tell us a little about yourself
I go to the Art Institute of Seattle. I do have a family of like over twenty aunts and uncles, a whole mess of cousins, two grandma, a grandpa, a mom, and two dads (one is married to my mom the other is my real dad).My hobbies include writing, reading, exploring, sewing, basically all crafts, anime, manga, and other stuff I'm to lazy to add right now.
