What got you into cosplay?
Being a fan of anime, manga, and video games, I frequent forums and websites dedicated to them. Through those sites I discovered cosplay, and have wanted to do it ever since. I've spent many years on cosplay forums and sites before I got into it myself, and it only encouraged me to do it sooner!
What was your first costume and why?
Tifa Lockheart from Final Fantasy Advent Children. Tifa has always been one of my favorite characters and I had long black hair at the time, so it just fit.
What is your favorite costume and why?
My Witch cosplay! It was so much fun :D
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
I have many. Zelda from Twilight Princess, Commander Shepard from Mass Effect, and Meru Dragoon form from Legend of Dragoon are my top three.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
I've had many memorable experiences, but one of the coolest was being interviewed for a cosplay documentary at a convention. That was pretty awesome :3
Do you participate in masquerades?
What was your best masquerade experience?
Winning audience choice. It was awesome to have so many people cheering for me!
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
I won "Best Invisible Detail" for my Glow Card cosplay at Cos & Effect 2011
Audience choice for my Rikku cosplay at Cos & Effect 2012
Tell us a little about yourself
