About Me / Q&A

What got you into cosplay?
I wanted something different for a Halloween costume rather then the same boring store bought ones. I decided to be a video game character and make my own. I didn't know it was cosplay at the time.
What was your first costume and why?
Rikku's Songstress. I was shy for my first costume and wanted something a little more modest and easier out of all her costume choices.
What is your favorite costume and why?
i love my Princess Zelda cosplay. It started in Sophmore year when my friend wanted me to be Zelda with him for Halloween since he was Link. It took off and ended up being added and altered every year for the holiday, and wore to my school. I got a reputation for being the "girl who dressed as Zelda every year." haha
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
I have a few that I would love to do, though money is a large issue in that factor. I've completed a few that I wanted to test. Like a historical ball gown and greatly updating Zelda. I'd like to expand my skills though. Something with armor or more complex sewing designs. I made a Captain America costume for my boyfriend, and that was definitely a challenge.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
I went to Anime Expo for the first time in 2009 I believe. It was my first con, and I debuted my first real costume knowing it was a cosplay. I had worked so hard on Theif Rikku with my mom, it was so great to see people like it.
Do you participate in masquerades?
None yet. Not sure if I'd want to. I can't think of any skit idea's and a walk on seems a bit boring.
Tell us a little about yourself
I'm in my second year of college majoring in Art (so I'm going to starve lol) I love making costumes and I'm thinking about possibly going into a career line for it, but wont hold my breath. I'm in retail and see every type of person you could imagine, which is not always the best thing. I'm definitely a "right side of the brain" kind of girl. I can draw you a picture and build something with my hands, but if you expect me to solve an algebra problem you are mistaken. Tall for a girl, and a bit of a spitfire. It can get me in trouble for it :P
My favorite anime
I'm a fan of the 90's esk anime. Sailor Moon, DBZ, Evengelion, Trigun etc. I recently finished Gurren Lagann and Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood. Still watching a few more.
My favorite game(s)
I'm a bit of a gamer, long time Sony fan, though I've played Xbox. Not that good at any turn based, or RPG. I like platformers and story based games as long as its not too much of a free roam. I'm also a fighting game fan. Very much into Street Fighter.
My favorite book(s)
I read a lot. In fact you could say I read too much if it's possible. I love historical murder mystery and fantasy/sci fi.
My favorite movies(s)
Any action or suspense. No horror or needless carnage/gore. it's pointless and scarry.
