What got you into cosplay?
Our local anime festival, Otafest. Seeing the richness and diversity of the costumes was very awe-inspiring.
What was your first costume and why?
Haven't got around to creating a costume for myself. I photograph other cosplayers to show off the awesomeness of their costumes.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Currently, a Dalek and a Gundam suit.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
It's gotta be the cosplay photoshoots. Every photoshoot is different and unique. Encouraging others to bring out the persona of their costume is very rewarding. The challenge of scripting a story for each costume and directing the photography is more fun than a regular fashion photoshoot.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Nope, but maybe one day if I get around to building those dream costumes.
My favorite anime
Macross (or more specifically, only the Robotech Macross saga) because it was so cool when I was young and the love triangle story was deep for its time.
Macross Frontier is also a great tribute to the other series!
My favorite game(s)
Anything Final Fantasy related.
FFVII is special. FFVI is classic. FFIX is heartwarming. FFVIII should have been the movie, not FF:TSW!
