What got you into cosplay?
What got me into cosplaying was watching my favorite animes and playing my favorite games and thinking, "wow that's pretty damn cool" and so after years of having that idea in mind and attending a few anime cons I finally did the research of how it can be done and then walla here I am today.
What was your first costume and why?
I'm currently working on it. It's a original character I created, Steampunk theme. His name is Joel Langridge. Reason why is because I was thinking of dressing up for the con and then I thought of trying to do something simple and within my reach of skill. Then I started learning more and more about steampunk and then I had a crazy moment of "why the hell not" So now I'm working on it. Hopefully it'll look alright. I know it's not true cosplaying but it's to get my feet wet and see how it goes and of course learn.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Ha ha ha ha yes a dream costume. My dream costume is to make the Mark VI armor from Halo 3. For years I've dreamed of having that armor and now after all that time I'm so close to having it, so close to making it a reality.
Do you participate in masquerades?
If there was one at Kawaii Kon you bet I would attend. But there isn't one. Yet.
