What got you into cosplay?
One day during the summer of 2008, my friend was talking about Caramelldansen and the dance to go along with it. She was telling me that people danced like that at cons. So I said to myself "Sounds kinda interesting!" I wanted to go to another convention, but this time, in a costume and interested in anime. Then I started getting into anime. So I decided that my friend and I should dress up. Since we love Super Smash Bros. , I decided that we should choose characters from there. I obviously chose Pit.
What was your first costume and why?
My first cosplay was Pit because I love him so much! XD I also though that it wouldn't be a hard to make...knowing it was my first time ever making a costume. And it actually wasn't hard. I had lots of fun making it and wearing it!
What is your favorite costume and why?
I would DEFINITELY say Teto :D Her cosplay was the first one that I made everything! I styled the wig, sewed everything with my sewing machine...for the first time! IT WAS A BEAUTIFUL SIGHT! I'm very proud of the way it turned out :)
Although, I still LOVED my Pit cosplay. It turned out pretty good for my first cosplay! :D
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
I have two dream costumes I would LOVE to make! They are Palutena (Kid Icarus/Super Smash Bros. Brawl) and NiGHTS (NiGHTS Journey of Dreams)
I think Palutena is very pretty! Her outfit is wonderful, but the only thing that would cause a problem are her many charms on her belt!! THERE ARE SO MANY!
NiGHTS would be AMAZING to do! NiGHTS is my favourite game and it was just so awesome. I don't know for sure how I would make the costume, but I've seen some ways that I could make it happen.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
FanExpo 2009 - Reborn photoshoot that turned into a picnic, that turned back into a photoshoot. Lots of random stuff happend during that time LOL It was amazing!
