What got you into cosplay?
Moving out and deciding that I want to live my own life with my own hobbies.
What was your first costume and why?
Final Fantasy X Lulu (I was going to Videogames Live Concert). I bought it on Cosplay.com's Marketplace... but I couldn't find Lulu's hairsticks... so I had to make them. And so started my crazy (and sometimes expensive) hobby.
What is your favorite costume and why?
Final Fantasy X Shiva. This is my first hand-made cosplay and means so much to me. I did not have much support at the beginning but I am glad I went for it because the product was amazing. It was also the project that allowed myself to prove that anyone can do this hobby.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
FF IV Rydia - I'm always in awe in the many FF Amano costumes out there - congrads to everyone who makes one!
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Otafest 2012 - So incredibly cool! I met so many nice and like-minded people there!
Do you participate in masquerades?
What was your best masquerade experience?
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Terra Branford - Best Cosplay Runner-UP (Otafest 2012)
Tell us a little about yourself
Hobbies - I do not like to admit it (but I will to you guys...) I LOVE VIDEO GAMES ~ ! I make crafts, dress up, and I have a HUGE Final Fantasy GF/Summon Collection. I take HUGE pride in it! I love it!
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
ALICE COOPER!!! In my opinion he is the best performer/musician!!
My favorite anime
Animes - I'm an old school anime lover (Ex. Utena, Sailor Moon, Evangelion, Magic Knight Rayearth) But I've also liked some of the newer ones (Ex. Chrono Crusade and X/1999.) I'm a fan of Fushigi Yugi (especially when I've had break up.... ah.. Tamahome. Move over Miaka!)
My favorite game(s)
Favorite Games: Final Fantasy Series (Especially FF IV!), Zelda Series, Mario Series, Xenosaga Series, Odin Sphere, Resident Evil (sigh... Leon,) Kirby, Kingdom Hearts, Fatal Frame, Silent Hill, Lunar Series, Parasite Eve... Okies if I keep going I will have not space! Basically I love a good story with good graphics. (I'm a girl - if the graphics are ugly I won't play.)
My favorite book(s)
Ceres: Celestial Legend, Tokyo Mew Mew, Sailor Moon, The Legend of Zelda, Chrono Crusade, Ragnarok Manga Series, Magic Knight Rayearth
My favorite character(s)
FF IV Kain - I love this guy! I just wish he'd find happiness and get married! AND get over Rosa!(But I don't Square Enix is going to ever let that happen....)
Resident Evil Leon - The one and only reason I got into Resident Evil in the first place.
My favorite movies(s)
Legend (1985 Tom Cruise) - A forest boy going to save a princess from a Devil... sound familar? Yup this movie was the beginning of the Legend of Zelda Series (I just didn't know that then.)
