What got you into cosplay?
Halloween, video games & anime. The simple fact of being able to dress up as your favorite character and interacting with people.
What was your first costume and why?
My first costume was a self-created vampire character for Larp. It was an old-victorian style design, similar to the Castlevania series. First convention costume was Zero/Lelouch from Code Geass.
What is your favorite costume and why?
Currently, Samus is my favorite to wear. It's a lot more comfortable then it looks, and who wouldn't want to be a bounty hunter?
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Valefor turned out so well, so I really want to try other large mascot costumes, and very intricate ones next~!
Also Leonardo, I love Turtles~
Do you participate in masquerades?
Yes! They are a lot of fun~
What was your best masquerade experience?
2010 was the best, only because it was my second time joining, and I somewhat knew where to go that time, so I wasn't so lost. Also met some awesome people who are now Den Buddies. :)
