What got you into cosplay?
My parents finally let me go to Anime North with 2 of my friends from school and one of my friends suggested I try cosplaying. At first I had it all organized that I was going to BUY my costume, but she convinced me to make my own.
What was your first costume and why?
My first costume was Roxas from Kingdom Hearts II. It was the only PS2 game we owned at the time and the costume looked easy enough to make...It wasn't
What is your favorite costume and why?
My FF7 Tifa costume. I almost died wearing the darn wig but I felt just so sexy.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Make, hell no! I can't sew worth sh**, though I would love to go as more Final Fantasy characters.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Filming our AC report 'Roxas wants Hugs' sequences and getting mauled by fangirls as well as getting held hostage by Afro Tousen at AN09.
Do you participate in masquerades?
Sometimes when I can think of a skit. My friends entered me last minute into the Anime North 2007 Saturday night Masquerade.
What was your best masquerade experience?
The gratifying sound of fangirls flipping out as I Roxas ran onto stage.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
No, but just you wait ;)
