About Me / Q&A

What got you into cosplay?
I'm not really sure. Ever since I was young I enjoyed dressing up and later on I stumbled onto anime and the world of cosplay(online).Something in me just wanted to do it and since my first(and only) anime convention I haven't been able to stop.
What was your first costume and why?
Amazing Nurse Nanako. Since I was going to be attending an overseas convention I wanted something a little "out there" I really liked the look of this costume and it was something that didn't seem too popular so I didn't have to worry about anyone dressed as the same character....hardly anyone recognized me! I had no means of making a costume at the time so had this one commisioned but landed up fixing a lot on it :/
What is your favorite costume and why?
I'd have to say Fuu from Samurai Champloo. It was a fun costume to wear and I look remarkabley like her too :) For a while I had been wanting to make a kimono/yukata and this was the perfect opportunity.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Hmmm,this seems to change all the time :D In the future I'd like to make something that incorporates a full body suit.I'd also like to do a mascot costume of Sgt Keroro!!
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Definately my first cosplay experience at Anime North in Toronto!! It was my first an only time at a real anime convention(living in South Africa makes it a pretty big deal!) and nothing so far compares to it at all!
Do you participate in masquerades?
Unfortunately there are no masquerades where I live but I do take part in little cosplay competitions when they do arise. I had attended the masquerade at Anime North but opted to watch it instead of entering.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
