What got you into cosplay?
Halloween has always been my favourite holiday. I love dressing up and as soon as I discovered cosplay ("You mean I can wear costumes on days other than Halloween?!") I had to get involved.
What was your first costume and why?
The very first costume I attempted to make myself was a very unsuccessful Regency era dress. I still shudder at the problems I had with that thing. Eugh.
What is your favorite costume and why?
So far it would probably have to be my Kay Faraday cosplay. I really learned a lot while making Kay.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Oh, so many! To name a few: Chii (Chobits), Tira (Soul Calibur IV) and Shinku (Rozen Maiden). I'd also like to recreate a few gowns seen in period films such as Marie Antoinette and The Duchess. In addition, Rogue (X-Men), Padme's picnic dress and packing gown from Star Wars: Attack of the Clones, and Eowyn's green gown and funeral gown from Lord of the Rings.
