What got you into cosplay?
After going to my first con and seeing how much fun it is and its also good at conversation starters with some lovely ladies :)
What was your first costume and why?
The Angel of Death aka Walter C. Dornez from Hellsing. I chose this because it is my favorite character from that show, and possible of any show. It is also a very comfortable cosplay.
What is your favorite costume and why?
At the moment probably my Nigel Kirkland from BGC: 2040. I favor this over my Walter because it was the first cosplay I went on stage with (ACEN '08)
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
From BGC: 2040 I would love to make a Priss Hardsuit(mostly functional) and a full motoslave to match. I have the motorcycle, but to make the fairings...now that will take some time :)
Also if i could find someone to go as Henrietta from Gunslinger Girl, i would love to be a Handler.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Might not be totaly related to cosplay, but i got into a really good room party because i was by my hotel door and a blonde haired guy says " Hey i know that cosplay...your that butler from Hellsing. Come down a few more rooms and party!" So i did. It wasen't till the next day that someone told me that was A guests suite for a voice actor. Turned out to be Vic Mignogna, he's a pretty down to earth guy and was lost of fun, as far as I can remember :P
Do you participate in masquerades?
What was your best masquerade experience?
ACEN '08 As Nigel Kirkland form BGC:2040, I was up on stage with one of my best friends, he was a full hardsuit of Sylia Stingray.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Tell us a little about yourself
Done with school and work full time as a HVAC tech.
I enjoy most things motorsports except nascar, and favor towards F1 racing and motorcycles.
I also am an avid movie watcher.
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
I would love to host a panel at a con, that would allow me to get a tattoo live, for people to see. I think it would be interesting, and could answer a lot of questions people have on getting tattoos. This is not likely to happen though, with many laws involving tattooing. Maybe a recording of it is possible....Oh, here I go rambling off again...
