What got you into cosplay?
My friend got me a Tetsuiga replica for Christmas last year, and well, what's a sword without a kimono, wig, and dog ears :)
What was your first costume and why?
Inuyasha, since I already had the sword, I decided to get a complete cosplay.
What is your favorite costume and why?
Currently it's still Inuyasha, since its the only one I have. However, Inuyasha is now retired for the time being since I had some trouble with the costume at my last couple of cons and don't have the time/money to upgrade him just now.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Honestly, I would really like to make a cosplay from Samurai Troopers/Ronin Warriors. Specifically the white Heriol armor. Either that or Al Elric from FMA.
Also I have been playing FF IV for DS, and would really like to make Kain's Dragoon armor from that game.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Getting hugged by dozens of random girls at an anime convention! :)
Do you participate in masquerades?
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Well... I was the best-dressed half-dog-demon at my first convention! :) Now, I was the best-dressed half-dog demon that was a guy over 12 at my last convention lol.
Tell us a little about yourself
I am in school, and yes I do have a family.
I work for a video game and electronics store, which is good and bad. Good in that it's one of the better jobs that I've had, bad in that I am way to tempted to buy games and other electronic goodies.
My hobbies are playing my DS and GBA, posting on forums (if you call that a hobby), and watching anime and reading manga.
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
Don't take summer classes over the internet. In fact, summer classes are bad news in general. lol
My favorite anime
Mostly I enjoy the Shonen/action animes such as:
Wolf's Rain (all time fave)
Bleach (when it's not in filler..)
Soul Eater (currently watching)
Gundam (pretty much any, save 0080)
Naruto (also when it's not in filler)
Inuyasha (if only it could have had an ending)
Ruroni Kenshin (yeah same here)
Yu Yu Hakusho
D. Gray Man
Full Metal Alchemist
Ghost in the Shell SAC
... and of course all of the Miyazaki films!
My favorite game(s)
Nintendo is amazing and infuriating at the same time. They are capable of producing some of the most incredible games of all time, but allow hordes of crappy no-name games to flood the market.
Enough of my spiel, I play Zelda, Smash Bros. Pokemon, Mario, Metriod, Star Fox, Final Fantasy, Fire Emblem, Mario Kart, Kingdom Hearts, Tales Series, etc.
My favorite book(s)
I read mostly Manga and fantasy literature such as Chronicles of Narnia or Lord of the Rings.
My favorite character(s)
Ishiin Kurosaki (Bleach)
Sajin Komamura (Bleach)
Urahara Kisuke (Bleach)
Zoro (One Piece)
L (Death Note)
Lelouch (Code Geass)
Allen Walker (D. Gray Man)
My favorite movies(s)
Narnia and LotR movies
Batman Begins and Dark Knight
Hulk (new version)
Speed Racer (live action)
yeah... pretty much any good superhero flick with lots of action.
Also, Pirates of the Carribean, and just about all theatrically released Disney and Pixar films.
