What got you into cosplay?
I've always been the only one in my family to be able to work a sewing machine, so one merry day I was looking in a magazine, saw some people dressed up as anime characters and...well, that was that!
What was your first costume and why?
The first REAL cosplay I made (well, technically my mother made it for me...I was an youngin' when I first started, alright!) was Rikku from Final Fantasy X. Not entirely sure why, it was quite some time ago.
What is your favorite costume and why?
Oh, thats a tough one. I really enjoy my Saya (Blood+) cosplay. Its comfortable, simple, and she's great fun to play. I also am particular to my Byakko (Yami no Matsuei) and Envy (Fullmetal Alchemist) cosplays, too.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Hm...this is also tough. I'd love to make Endrance from .hack//G.U as well as a couple of Trinity Blood art book cosplays. *sighs dreamily*
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Oh, it would have to be my first convention. I was so n00bish, it killed. But I just LOVE looking back that far and seeing how much I've learned over the years. =)
Do you participate in masquerades?
Yeah, here and there. I'm normally too shy to go up on stage by my lonesome, so I go with a group if I do.
What was your best masquerade experience?
Waiting in line the first time I ever went on stage. I was so nervous cause I was by myself, that I ended up getting someone from the same series to go on stage with me in the end. XD
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
A couple, but it was at a really small convention. I won a "2nd Place Best in Show", "Chairman's Choice Award" and "1st Place Best in Show Skit", all at AnimeLand Wasabi here in Denver.
Tell us a little about yourself
I am hopping to get a masters in Baking and Pastry Arts, I love baking! Oh, and my hobby is being poor. =D
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
To the extreme?
