What got you into cosplay?
Well, I was going to my first Anime convention (Anime Boston 2008) and I figured I'd do a costume to get the full experience! It was really frustrating at times but I finally finished! It was far from perfect but it was so much fun that I plan to do more cosplay again!
What was your first costume and why?
Zelda from the Legend of Zelda. I loved playing as Zelda in Super Smash Brothers Melee, so it was a natural first costume. The armor didn't turn out well at all (note to self: cloth makes terrible armor) but I learned a lot from the experience and even improved my sewing skills!
What is your favorite costume and why?
Hmm, well have to see what I make in the future! ^^
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Zelda (Twilight Princess) or Falco Lombardi (SSBB). Gosh I love them both, but I don't have the skills yet to do them justice. One day though!
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
One derived from my cosplay experience: from my sewing skills with satin (which I used for Zelda's skirt) I managed to take a random piece of striped satin and turn it into a fashionable shirt for my friend's dance performance in two hours! Not to mention the dance was only 5 hours later after we finished! ^^
Do you participate in masquerades?
As of now no. I'm a little stage fright but I'm sure once I get the courage to do it it'll be lots of fun!
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Nope, haven't even aimed for those yet.
