About Me / Q&A

What got you into cosplay?
A great way to enjoy my favorite characters.
What was your first costume and why?
Golgo 13, the manga was highly recommended to me by a friend.
What is your favorite costume and why?
Evangelion Type 00. Right now I am attending Goldy's Akihabara workshop and we have Type 00, 01 and 02. I don't think you can find all 3 units together anywhere else. This is also the first mecha I have made on my own, it took about a year and a half and I love it.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
My next project is Lucius from Termae Romae. One costume I would love to down the road is Captain Juhzoh Okita from Uchusenkan Yamato but like when I'm older. I would like to make a mecha from Gundam or Evangelion but haven't decided which one. Mazinger Z - perhaps will remain a dream Bison from Street Fighter
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Judging an event in China, 8 hours a day, 3 days straight, performances had 30-50 cosplayers on each team and performances were between 15 and 30 minutes long in 35 degree heat. (95 degrees Fahrenheit) Truly unforgettable, the performances were excellent too!
Do you participate in masquerades?
Yes, I have been to maybe 10 countries now going to anime and manga events for university research, judging and/or as a representative of the World Cosplay Summit.
What was your best masquerade experience?
I would say performing on the Japan Expo stage as Unit 00 with Nadia SK from Italy as Ayanami Rei.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Nope, but I've given out a lot of awards.
Tell us a little about yourself
Teach at university. Like cake.
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
The first desire to wear a costume, no matter what form, the first 'akogare' (longing) is a moment to be cherished.
