What got you into cosplay?
You know, I'm really not sure. I don't remember how I found out about cosplay, but I started going to cons when I saw the commercial for AXNY late one night and decided to go. From there, I started building an interest for cosplay and cons and the rest is history~
What was your first costume and why?
Su-Yung/Madoushi from the first CCS movie, since it's what I was watching at the time. Shitsux. I'll do it right someday.
What is your favorite costume and why?
Really not sure...even tho its kinda retired now, I had the most fun in my Fuu costume, so I guess that. It was one of my first costumes and I have a lot of memories attached to it; both good and bad, but mostly good...like meeting-my-idol good :D It may not be the best costume I've made, but who says that a well-made costume has to be my fave?
Rika's a close second, because she's my favorite character, and the reactions I got for her made me really happy too.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
I've so far made my dream costumes XD I suppose Gallantmon and Sakuyamon from Digimon Tamers are up there for dream costumes, on account of the insane armor.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
3 little kids came up to me and BlackMarth when we were Ben and Gwen and they asked for our autographs X3 That's why it's good to cosplay American cartoons at anime cons- the kids love it!
Do you participate in masquerades?
Yup. And I love every one I've been in since it's been a dream of mine to perform on stage and entertain an audience. Wonderful, wonderful feeling.
What was your best masquerade experience?
Katsucon 2008, with my Cowboy Bebop skit. This was my first time running a skit and despite some problems, it turned out well and it made the audience happy, so in turn that made me feel like a million bucks.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Yes, but I rarely compete in contests. I only enter things I'm super proud of.
