What got you into cosplay?
The idea first hit me when Suncoast use to hold costume anime events at their locations in the malls near me. Ever since then I've loved it.
What was your first costume and why?
For my first costume I chose to be Ichigo Kurosaki in his Bankai form as he was just one of those characters that thoroughly blew my mind as he got more powerful :]
What is your favorite costume and why?
So far I've only done Ichigo Kurosaki, and Natsu Dragneel from Fairy Tail so for now I've gotta say Ichigo, mainly because I made that costume and I got a lot of compliments on it at the Zenkaikon '09 despite it's faults.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
All my cosplays are my dream cosplays, things I aspire to one day have done. I know eventually I'll get most of them ;D
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Making my Ichigo Costume and going to my first cons with a lot of my good friends :3
Do you participate in masquerades?
I have not yet :c
