What got you into cosplay?
Going my first year to AE in 2004, I noticed the culture of it grow and kinda felt like an outsider in my anime t-shirt -_- So I decided to join the fray! ^_^
What was your first costume and why?
Misa Amane from Deathnote. I love the character and her style. It was a gong-show, so I'm not sure if I'll ever put the pictures up, no wig and I improvised the costume mostly from clothes I already had. I'm hoping to redo it really well someday. It was a start anyways.
What is your favorite costume and why?
Probably Charlotte because I like the way the gijinka design worked out and with the hood it was pretty instantly recognizable. Calmasis was really fun too because hardly anyone ever cosplays them. ^^
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Many actually, the main ones are:
-Sakura from Tsubasa (In one of the more ridiculous outfits)
-a KH2 cosplay (secret) the hint is... it's an enemy
-Tommy (Young Avengers)
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
AE 2012 I think. I can't believe the pictures we got of us, I had so much fun, my brother met his girlfriend and I met many of the friends I have now and it'll just get better as the years come. Sakura Con 2012 was amazing too.
Tell us a little about yourself
