What got you into cosplay?
I'm not really sure...! When I heard people often dress up as characters when going to anime convention, I was all for it! So, I cosplayed my very first con!
What was your first costume and why?
My first cosplay was Tenten from Naruto. Me and my friend were big into Naruto back then, and those costume are very simple (which was good since I had very little sewing experience). And I liked Tenten and resembled her! So, I made that costume and a Sakura one for my friend! (The costume. Was pretty terrible.)
What is your favorite costume and why?
Right now I am very satisfied with my most recent cosplays, so I can't pick a favorite. However, I had an ABSOLUTE BLAST as Danny Phantom, an experience that right now can't compare.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
My dream costume has always been making a pilot suit... and well, now that I have, I'd have to say my new dream is to make practically every outfit that Lelouch wears, hahah. O.O And well, everything Ken, too. SO that I can go to the Digital World. :3
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Hmm... I'm not really sure. I'm not a very eventful cosplayer, so I guess just attending cons! It's always makes you feel good when someone asks to take your picture! I hope to maybe enter some events sometime. And of course, being able to group cosplay with friends!
Do you participate in masquerades?
No... I'm not really made for the stage ^_^; Unless someone forced me, lol.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Haven't entered any contests! Though, I'd like to!
Tell us a little about yourself
I am a recent college graduate with a BFA in Graphic Design and a Minor in Japanese... I love animals of all sorts! and hope to one day live in the middle of nowhere on a farms with my horses, dogs, and other creatures... But for now, I'm stuck in suburbia... One day, I hope to make my own comic! One day...
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
I was so lucky to spend 4 months in Tokyo, Japan for a study abroad program in spring 2008! It was the experience of a lifetime and I hope to be able to live in Japan again!

今、私は日本語を勉強しています。 本当に日本語を上手になりたいです。だから、できれば、日本人の友達をしたいです。 あなたは日本人でアメリカ人に話したかったら、PMやEメールをしまんか？ コスプレについてことだけじゃなくて、何でももいいですよ。 よろしくおƆ
