What got you into cosplay?
A while after I had been getting into anime, one of my friends got the bright idea that we should go to a small nearby anime convention. That convention was JAFAX. I, as well as the rest of my friends, was told by the one instigating the trip that I should come up with a costume. I thought that was silly at the time and did not. After going to JAFAX, I realized it was silly NOT to when at a convention, so I sought out getting myself a costume for the next time and I've been cosplaying ever since.
What was your first costume and why?
My first costume is my ZAFT uniform. Gundam Seed is one of my favorite shows, and of all the outfits in the original show, the ZAFT uniforms looked the coolest.
What is your favorite costume and why?
I can't really say that I have a favorite. I might have favorites in a decade when I hopefully have enough costumes to be able to do so, but I like pretty much all the ones I have now for different reasons. My ZAFT uniform was my first, my EAF uniform is the most comfortable, Char is just plain awesome, and Sailor Mercury is fun to walk around in.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
I don't think I have a dream cosplay, although there are several I would like to do that will probably always be out of reach due to complexity.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Nothing particularly noteworthy.
Do you participate in masquerades?
What was your best masquerade experience?
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Nope. Just because I like doing this doesn't mean I'm good at it. =P
Tell us a little about yourself
I develop software for a living, having gotten a degree in Computer Science from Michigan. I enjoy anime and cosplaying, but I also enjoy sports (Especially watching my Wolverines, Lions, Red Wings, and Tigers), video games, going to the beach, playing cards, golfing, bowling, or pretty much anything if I'm in the mood for it.
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
I am a Jesus freak and enjoy every moment of it. He's the reason I'm here today, and the best thing that has ever happened to me. =)
