What got you into cosplay?
I love Trinity Blood and it has amazing character designs, so cosplay was the logical step. XD
What was your first costume and why?
Astharoshe Asran from Trinity Blood. Because I was crazy.
What is your favorite costume and why?
So far, Ion from Trinity Blood. It's the most visually interesting of all my costumes, and I'm happy with the workmanship.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
I do, but it changes every few months. As of May 2012, it's Klaus from Scissors Crown.
Do you participate in masquerades?
I try to, as long as I have a costume finished that I'm happy with.
What was your best masquerade experience?
Anime North 2012. My den was awesome, and my monologue went well! So many awesome people in the green room, and my awards made it even better. XD
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Best Worksmanship Dotcon 2008, Best presentation novice AN 2011, Best in class journeyman AN 2012, honorable mention for presentation AN 2012, and a bunch of hall awards.
