What got you into cosplay?
Well..since I was young my mother was very enthusiastic about Halloween. So when we made our costumes..they were really over the top and very detailed and everything we needed we made. Or for other occasions we would make an outfit for it so, that is what really gets me excited and happy to do it.
What was your first costume and why?
If you want to be real Technical, it was Ariel from the Little Mermaid when I was a little girl, I helped my mom make it for me. I love mermaids hehe. ^ ^ If not, then by Con ideals, it was Tifa Lockhart from the original FF:7 game, and I cosplayed her because my friends told me I resemble her a lot. And in many ways..@_@ but it was fun and it was easy for a novice like me, as well very comfy ^ ^.
What is your favorite costume and why?
Hm..I loved my Seras Victoria costume, mainly for the fact I LOVE Hellsing, and it is a very comfy outfit. Second to that is my Tifa Lockhart outfit as well, mainly for the idea of, I dont have to wear a wig.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Hm...Rosette Christopher, and it is in the process of being made lol with other costumes.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Hm...Oh my gosh!! okay. I did Tifa Lockhart from A.C. at this anime con where there were some videogame designers who came from Japan to show off their game and get fans and so forth. So, we lost our Aerith in the group and I went off to go find her. And when I passed their booth, suddenly I hear this loud and very surprised gasp, you know like when you see something that catches you off guard? Anyways, I stop and I look over to the booth and suddenly like...the entire booth crew just come to me calling me the real Tifa and just start bombarding me with wanting Photos hahaha. Then they start saying its scary how I looked like her and all that jazz. It was just so funny to me and it scared me for a little bit, I dont think I look too much like her, but the honor was nice ^ ^.
Do you participate in masquerades?
Yes I have, and in the ones I have participated in so far, I have received awards, I hope I can keep it up.^ ^ and if any of you have not been to join, Try it!!! it is fun ^ ^.
What was your best masquerade experience?
I was dressed as Princess Zelda and I had a Link as my partner and I was literally treated as a Princess lol it was funny, my poor link partner dealt with having to find a partner because of it. And it was just interesting, I had a lot of guys bowing and or kissing my hand and it was cute, especially with the No face.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
I have, I have won awards as myself in a single entry or myself with group entries, and I won some awards from contests that participated within the con.
