What got you into cosplay?
I first got into cosplay by seeing them first on Youtube. I then realized what cosplay was and always wanted to give it a try at the age of 16/17. I saw how fun anime conventions were and how fun dressing up as characters could be. So thus, my cosplaying life began. I got fortunate for the last few years because my costumes have been made...but this year I'm actually making them this year. :)
What was your first costume and why?
Riku from Kingdom Hearts, but it was more of a "Hurry up and chose this" kinda thing. At that time there was a Cosplay Contest at my local library. So I quickly put that costume on and did a walk on. I was an epic moment, I made a huge mistake on stage and caused the crowd to laugh. DX It was horrible. But hey, it was my first time being on stage in cosplay. We all begin somewhere. :D
What is your favorite costume and why?
A mix between my Finland cosplay and my sister's Fem!Sweden cosplay. My friend made both for a convention here in Texas. I love wearing both of them. They are so easy to wear and are so comfy. :)
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Fem!Prussia - Nyotalia/Hetalia
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Last June, at A-Kon 23 2012. It was my first time going to my dream con, A-Kon. Not only did I get to go with my best friends and cosplay. We all got to participate on stage for a skit. We didn't win but it was fun though. I also got to meet two of my favorite J-Rock/Visual-Kei bands, OZ and AYABIE. I got to shake their hands and get autographs. I gave the singer of OZ a drawing I made and he loved it. It'll stay in my heart forever! <3
Tell us a little about yourself
I'm currently going to a local community college and dreaming of becoming a Concept Artist. I'm the youngest of my household and the most positive. I have been through a lot and am still alive in this world. I have two fat and lazy parakeets who can officially say 3 words. I love drawing, cosplaying, role-playing, sleeping, writing, reading, watching anime, reading manga, playing video games, hanging out with buddies, meeting new people, cooking, sewing, listening to music, dancing, working out, laughing, having fun!
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
I'm very shy at first, sometimes I feel nonexistent at times. I'm very loud and outgoing once you get to know me, in fact, my parents say it's quiet in the house when I'm away.
