What got you into cosplay?
My friend TokaiHara (Kill_Your_Tv) introduced me to the world of cons & cosplay in my senior year of high school but after graduating I fell out of it. Then my friend Mew_Illusion (also a friend from high school) revamped my interest. Then that lead on to meeting other people online. CJ (Youtube Kefka) really inspired me (Mew_Illusion showed me his vids). And it blossomed from there!
What was your first costume and why?
The first one I ever made was a moogle because it was may and I was supposed to go to Metrocon later that summer so I needed something easy to make. But stuff happened, I ended up not going to Metro and i never got to wear it in full to a con. Though I did wear the arm & leg warmers, headband and wings on friday at Janicon 07. I did eventually wear the Moogle in full at Megacon 2008.
The first i actually wore at a con was my SNJ Zabuza. It actually started as a joke. My friend Corey and I were talking online and i was telling him how i had cut my hair short and dyed it black. Jokingly he said that i should cosplay snj zabuza and i ended up taking the idea and running with it. So that was my first =3

Tell us a little about yourself
This is my 2nd cosplay.com profile. I'm originally known as MachinaPrincess but I had issues with that one so I made this one!
I've been cosplaying since 2007 and still haven't gotten to a point where I can make some really epic stuff (though there are a few in the works) I'm currently employed at a fabric & craft store which is awesome for the discounts lol. I met my bf through cosplay and we have alot of projects we want to start working on as soon as finances provide. I am also a gamer and love animation of all kinds. :3
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
"If you're gonna be original, you can count on being copied."
Me: "I was completely walled."
Brio: "You mean floored?"
Me: "Pffft...whatever...I defy gravity."
