What got you into cosplay?
When I went to Anime Expo 07 for the first time; coz my friend asked me if I like Anime so much, why don't I go to conventions?? XD! After that experience... I was pretty much hooked.
What was your first costume and why?
My first cosplay was Link from Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time. I chose Link because I am a big fan of the game series and his costume was easy to make in the time I had. ^_^
What is your favorite costume and why?
Right now it would have to be my Yami Yugi cosplay I made for AX 08. I had fun making everything from the costume to the wig, and the props that went along with it. Also when I was at AX, so many people complemented me on it saying I was the best Yami they had ever seen! ^__^ that was so nice of them!!
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Samus & Lilith Sahl... I want to go all out with these two, but I need a lot of funding...
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Having my costume win Excellent Craftsmanship for the first time... & Getting stopped for a sobriety test while in cosplay, twice!
Do you participate in masquerades?
I have only done a walk ons. For the first time at Ani-Magic 09. I wore my Yami Yugi cosplay. I've also participated in Pacific Media Expo 2009 and Anime LA 2010.
What was your best masquerade experience?
Ani-Magic 09 was best I suppose because it was my first time. When I was on stage posing the audience kept shouting out "heart of the cards!" "It's time to Duel!" & "Exodia!!" which made to break character and start laughing.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
My Yami Yugi Cosplay was featured in Cosmode #25, not an award per say, but I feel like I won something ^_^
*I won Excellent Craftsmanship in the Novice division at Ani-Magic 09
