What got you into cosplay?
An elaborate combination of getting into Naruto, our high school's literary club, and the Internet. That and I've always loved costumes, but until I discovered the culture of cosplay, I never expected to actually ever make my own costumes!
What was your first costume and why?
My first attempt at cosplay was Haruhi Suzumiya, I suppose. First one that I made myself was Yoko Littner, but I started making things before that, such as parts of my Haku Yowane (not listed on my profile right now) and Anya Alstreim.
What is your favorite costume and why?
Right now, I'd say Tess, since I look so different as her, and she's a character I never expected to really pull off. I also love how colorful and adventurous I look! It's relatively comfy, except for the ears. They're on a headband that is a little too tight for comfort.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
There's always characters that I want to do, and I know I'll do them one day. But in general, things or skills I want to master are armor, perhaps a fur suit/mascot suit, ball gowns, wings, props, kimonos, and something with lots of applique and similar detail!
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
I have had so many that very few truly stick out in my head- they were all special and good times!
Do you participate in masquerades?
Yup, I love to do masquerades! I enter whenever possible, and also run the masquerade for one con. =)
What was your best masquerade experience?
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Yoko, Tess, Blue Rose, Esmeralda and Nagi have all won awards.
Tell us a little about yourself
I love costume design, film, drawing, and having fun!

If you ever have any questions about my costumes or cosplay in general, feel free to ask me! ^_^
