What got you into cosplay?
I had always wanted to cosplay and I had only been to two conventions before hand (K con 06 and K con 07) the first time I could only go one day, the second time two days, and the third time I could finnaly attend all three days of the con. So I decided to make it the first year I cosplayed.
but my true inspiration is probaly the Tuxedo Team from the Philippians : ) they really got me excited about it.
What was your first costume and why?
That halloween I persuaded my aunt to let me borrow her sewing Machine for the making of my first costume, Merleawa from Magical x Miracle. I have not worn her since as she is not my best costume..... seriosly the sewing sucked xP
I never actually wore her to a Con, she was a meetup only.
My first REAL cosplay was Blue Chocobo xD Which wasnt even meant to be a cosplay but it turned out that way and It's been one of my favorites ever since, but has long since gone into retirment never to come back out so only limited pictures are availble.
What is your favorite costume and why?
I gotta say for wearing thats Kairi from KH2 as shes easy to put on, and shes not a hassel to walk in.
However as far as abosulte favorite goes I think I have to say Princess Peach as it is the first costume I sewed myself (designing help from Macy and a bit of instruction as to how to follow the patern by her mother) though I dont like putting her on >_<
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
God yes I do xD I REALLY want to cosplay a Gundam xD I know I'm crazy and its more labor with modling plastic than sewing but It's my dream costume.
As far as sewin goes my current dream (and lined up to be the next one I do) Is Rosette from Chrono Crusade as she is my alltime favorite character.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
I think my most memorable experience is as the blue Chocobo.
It was at the con and we were all heading to the mall across from the hotel for lunch, the rest of my group had just gotten through the huge registration line and we were starved.
Going up the escalator to the food court I suddenly saw a flash and looked around, to find a girl I had never seen before, not in cosplay and with no con badge, taking a dozen or so pictures of me.
then later while in the line for subway i had just gotten my food and I turned around to another falsh and there the girl was again, taking another bunch of pictures and then she ran away before I could even say anything.
Do you participate in masquerades?
I do : ) I help my friends Bang Bang Neko with their skits and play extra parts when they need me. I really enjoy it but I'm planning my own skit this year.
What was your best masquerade experience?
Best experience? First year i did it. It was my second year of K con and my friend Megan said they needed "sexy" girls for their skit as extras, I said I would help but had no costume. She lent me her lolita dress. It was incredibley short and I didnt have any shorts so I was really nerveos >_< But I had so much fun in it and we ended up winning best in show! So afterwords we went and all had dinner to celibrate : )
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
For my costumes? Sadly no but I do have two nice awards from being apart of the winning skit.
Tell us a little about yourself
Im a high school student who has way more free time than I should. My personal sewing machine seems to be eternaly broken so I have to walk up to my best friend Macy's house everytime I want to sew something.
as far as hobbies go I'm a novalist first and formost and an artist second.
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
I am hyper active and have now mastered the art of not breathing thanks to the corset I wear for peach -_-
