What got you into cosplay?
Just looking at some of the wonderful cosplay pictures that can be found online! It made me so happy to look at cosplay pictures of some of my favorite characters, because it was like they had suddenly come to life. I am also an aspiring photographer, so it's nice to be able practice two of my hobbies at once. ^^
What was your first costume and why?
SNJ Kakashi, because it was a simplistic design and because Kakashi is one of my all-time favorite characters.
What is your favorite costume and why?
Tifa Lockhart, because I have a natural resemblance to her, and the costume is also very comfortable to wear. Aerith is my favorite Final Fantasy girl, but Tifa is a close second. Also, Tifa's outfit was the first costume I made from scratch, including styling and straightening the wig by myself. I'm very proud of it.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
LOL, I have had several amazing and hilarious cosplay experiences, but I'd have to say the one that I love the most was during MetroCon 2009 when I was cosplaying Tifa. There was one point when a group of about ten guys all mobbed me at once after one screeched "OMIGOD, TIFA!! TIFA!!!! IT'S THE REAL TIFA!!" and they all crowded around me, hugging me like crazy, gushing over my costume, and taking turns getting pictures with me. It was overwhelming, but in a good way, and very flattering. I always love watching people get so excited to see me in costume. XD
Do you participate in masquerades?
I've had plans to in the past, but have never gotten around to it. I probably will at some point soon, though. ^_^
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
No, because I have never entered any of my costumes in competitions as of yet.
Tell us a little about yourself
I live in sunny Florida, where there are thankfully an abundance of conventions. :D I work at GameStop, it's the best job ever. Plus, I make money and as we all know, such a thing is a necessity in the realm of cosplay. XD
I have several hobbies, my favorites among them being cosplaying, photography, daydreaming, drawing, writing stories and poetry, skateboarding, dancing, surfing, playing video games, reading, and playing with animals.
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
Not really......But feel free to message me about anything! ;D
