What got you into cosplay?
An Animerica magazine had some info and pictures on it, and I've always loved costumes and tried to make anime/video game costumes even before I knew what cosplay was.
What was your first costume and why?
Rinoa Heartilly. Final Fantasy VIII is my absolute favorite game. I've always loved her outfit and thought she was the prettiest female in any Final Fantasy.
I also have had the biggest crush on Squall forever, so that also pushed me to make it.
What is your favorite costume and why?
My favorite costume would probably be Rinoa, just because she's been with me all these years.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Dream costume right now is Lulu from Final Fantasy X.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
I met my wonderful boyfriend at Colossalcon 2011, he was cosplaying Squall. I was Yuna at the time, but Rinoa was my Saturday cosplay, we hit it off really well.
We just celebrated our 1 year anniversary at Colossalcon 2012, in which he bought me Rinoa's necklae in silver as an anniversary gift.
I got him the silver Griever earring as my anniversary gift to him too. We swapped gifts during 'Eyes on Me' at the formal ball.
It was just wonderful and I'm so happy that one of my passions have introduced me to such a wonderful man whom I love dearly, and so many amazing friends!
Do you participate in masquerades?
Only one so far. I want to do more though!
What was your best masquerade experience?
Presenting my slightly altered newer Femme Squall design with my Femme Seifer, at Shinbokucon 2012.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
I won a Hallway award for my Tifa cosplay at Colossalcon 1.5 in 2011.
