What got you into cosplay?
It was an excuse to crossdress in public! I still got a lot of flak for it...
What was your first costume and why?
Kiki from Majou No Takyuubin (Kiki's Delivery Service).
What is your favorite costume and why?
That's the only one.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Getting hit on by creepy old guys while dressed as a girl.
Do you participate in masquerades?
Not anymore, unless you count going to clubs and shopping "in costume"...
Tell us a little about yourself
I am a freelance computer programmer / web designer / musician / engineer / video editor / writer / etc. Last I checked this I was working on a playstation portable game. I've worked on multi-million selling titles for Playstation 2, X-Box, Gamecube, etc. . I'm also a part-time transvestite... hence then interest in crossplay. I sing and play guitar (for real) in a drag show in North Hollywood. I've sold over 100 copies of my 5 song EP, and been featured on two compilation CDs.
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
I'm not gay, I'm just pretty!
