What got you into cosplay?
Sewing and dressing up is always fun!
What was your first costume and why?
San from Princess Mononoke. I love wolves, and San is a very strong and wild character, and I fell in love with her.
What is your favorite costume and why?
I can't really pick a favorite yet, since I haven't done all the ones I want to do, but I am very fond of my Seramyu Sailor Saturn.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Hotaru's New Years furisode (long-sleeved kimono for young women); the pattern for the furisode and obi are far too intricate for me to attempt to paint, so I'm hoping to find and buy a vintage furisode and obi with the patterns. I'd also love to do Yumei from Valkyrie Profile.
Do you participate in masquerades?
Someday. I'm far too shy and my chronic fatigue keeps me from being able to stand in line for long periods of time.
