What got you into cosplay?
I've loved anime for a long time. I also love performing arts, where you're generally required to wear costumes during recitals and concerts. So put two loves of mine together, and you have a hobby.
What was your first costume and why?
My first costume in general was a Fluttershy cosplay that my good friend made for me. After altering it a bit to fit my frame better, I've started wearing it again.
The first costume I made for myself was a ballgown loosely inspired by 'Rose of Versailles'. It's an awesome gown that gets a lot of attention!
What is your favorite costume and why?
Gods, how to choose just one? I think if you put an honest effort into a costume, I'll love it all the same.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Sailor Kakyuu, for starters.
Do you participate in masquerades?
I just started participating in Masquerade at ALA 2013.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
ALA 2013 - Excellence in Design award.
