What got you into cosplay?
A friend convinced me to Cosplay as the Crow at Toronto Fan Expo 2007. I was instantly addicted and swore to anime cosplay for 2008, the rest of my natural life and then some.
What was your first costume and why?
What is your favorite costume and why?
Allen Walker Crown Clown has fantastic depth and detail. I had to wear 4 layers of clothing to truly capture all the detail.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Hmmm. Not yet but I'm looking for a challenge.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Three japanese girls, wearing D. Gray-man uniforms recognized my Crown Clown outfit and I thought they might pee themselves with excitement.
Do you participate in masquerades?
I didn't for Fan Expo 2008 but I will for my next convention.
Tell us a little about yourself
A supportive wife who made most of my Allen outfit. 4 & 6 year old boys who think it's cool I cosplay, at least for now. Love my job as a Multiplex movie theatre Gen. Manager. Many of my employees will be joining me for the next convention.
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
I wish I had more time to meet all the great cosplayers at these conventions. I'm older than 90% of them so I don't aggressively convers with them. I've learned that's been a mistake after meeting two great cosplayers (Code Geass) on the third day and had a great chat in line and still chat with them.
