What got you into cosplay?
When I was over at my friend's house and her sister introduced me to cosplaying, and I had my first experience at Anime 2006. Since then I have fallen in love with cosplaying and has been doing it ever since.
What was your first costume and why?
My first costume was an Organization XIII member from Kingdom Hearts II. No particular character, just the cloak, which was actually made from an old halloween costume lol. Also Kingdom Hearts was a major obsession of mine at the time and I didn't have the time nor money to make another costume.
What is your favorite costume and why?
I would have to say my favorite costume is Naruto. I'm known by that character and his personality is a lot like mine. I will never retire Naruto.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
It would probably be a tie between 4-tailed Kyuubi Naruto and Ven from Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
My most memorable experience was at Anime Expo 2007, where I first met many of my cosplay friends I have today. The Naruto gathering was amazing.
Do you participate in masquerades?
At time to time.
What was your best masquerade experience?
I only did one skit, and it wasn't that good, so I'm hoping to do a better skit at Anime LA 2009 or Anime Expo 2009.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Tell us a little about yourself
I'm 17, and currently in the 11th grade. Cosplaying is currently my favorite hobby but I also enjoy drawing. I hope one day to become a famous animator.
