What got you into cosplay?
I was asked my junior year of high school if I wanted to join in on a group cosplay. And then... it stuck.
What was your first costume and why?
Officially, it's Sora from KHII because that was the role assigned to me when I first started out.
In the past, I'd worn a couple "cosplays" for Halloween but I don't really count those.
What is your favorite costume and why?
Alice from Pandora Hearts. Comparatively, the amount of work I put into her seems paltry, but at the same time, she gave me a huge confidence boost.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
The thousands of different dresses Sakura has in Tsubasa... No seriously.
And as always, Rima. Rima, Rima, Rima. My favorite vampire in existence.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
A-kon 2008, when I fell asleep in a telephone booth for two minutes and woke up to a horde of gushing fangirls. Eesh. That was slightly awkward.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Portal Productions' Ducky Award 2009 for best craftmanship, OSAS Halloween 2nd place, OSAS Halloween 1st place, Tokyo in Tulsa 2011 3rd place [group], Tokyo in Tulsa 2012 1st place [group]
Tell us a little about yourself
I'm in school, I hate my non-existent job, I have a family, and my hobbies are photography, writing, musical endeavors, and cosplay. Duh.
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
Never give up what you enjoy because someone else ruined the experience for you.
