What got you into cosplay?
I liked the idea of changing one's persona for a time being, so cosplay is like a way for me to have fun by pretending to be someone else. That, and I really like the outfits.
What was your first costume and why?
Ehhhhh, the first cosplay I actually worked on was Pyramid Head from Silent Hill 2, and that's actually completed. I have an incomplete Kingdom Hearts I Sora that I worked on before that I don't intend on finishing. And if you count non-effort closet cosplay, I did Ed from Ed, Edd 'n Eddy once for Halloween, and that was terrrrrible.
What is your favorite costume and why?
My favorite so far is America from Hetalia. Even though I plan on remaking the outfit, the fun times I had with the first go at the costume were all too awesome. Out of all the other characters, I think America is more like my personality (being born and raised in the US and all....) so dressing up as him is always fun.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Ahh, KOS-MOS's version 4 outfit from Xenosaga 3. I already have an idea of how I'm going to go about doing it, it's just I always tend to have another outfit I really want to do even more than KOS-MOS, so I've never gotten around to working on it.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
When I sang "Take On Me" dressed as Lucy from Elfen Lied at a small con in my area.
Do you participate in masquerades?
I like to, but I'm always conflicted as to what skit to do....
What was your best masquerade experience?
Well, I've only been in the masquerade 4 times, but only 2 out of those 4 was actually planned. The other 2 were just dumb dance skits that I did just to pass the time, I wasn't really serious in actually trying to win anything with them (even though I did win best skit for one of them, for some reason). Out of those 2, I'll have to say when my friends and I did a Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep skit where the guys try to get Kairi's attention, but in the end Kairi ended up being a trap that liked Aqua, hahaha.....
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Not for my costumes, but I got Best Skit at one masquerade.
