What got you into cosplay?
I've been converted to anime since 2001. I found out about a local con late in the fall of 2007 so planned to make it happen and it did. The group loved it so we'll return for year 2 and hopefully branch out to other cons as we go.
What was your first costume and why?
I chose a kitty maid. I love the adorable lolita outfits and decided to start out there.
What is your favorite costume and why?
My maid costume was comfortable, although the shoes were for only so long.. I can't wait to see what happens in the future for costumes.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Yukio The Time-Space Witch. I love her black outfit as it's my favorite and I'd like to try that down the road. One goal at a time.
Uotani in her Yankee days!!
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Seeing all the different choices for costumes, especially the cp's who are very much into character and do such a awesome job!
Do you participate in masquerades?
No, I haven't yet.
What was your best masquerade experience?
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
so far no as I haven't entered any events. But I plan on doing so with my costume for 09'.
Tell us a little about yourself
I'm looking at online colleges right now. I have 3 younger sisters 21, 19, and 17. I live in a house that is over 100 years old. I do hate my job, but it's work and I've been there for 3 years. It pays the bills. I raise Percheron draft horses and actually have 10 horses, 4 dogs, 3 goats, 6 cats, 2 rats, and 3 tanks of tropical fish. My room is practically full of books. I'm slowly getting a collection of good manga's and anime dvd's. I collect swords.
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
I love Hellsing, and I collect as many hellsing items as I can. I stupidly bid against my friend who was secretly trying to buy me a signed drawing of alucard by kouta hirano. I love Yukari Toshimichi's work of Hellsing and I am working on getting something done by her. I also continue to hunt for all her doujinshi's.
