What got you into cosplay?
My first con was Ani-Magic 2003, and I felt very out of place amongst everyone who was dressed up. The next year at AX2004, my friends and I cosplayed and have been doing so every year since.
What was your first costume and why?
My first costume was Shuuichi from Gravitation. I was a big fan of the series as a young teen. Needless to say, I've grown a bit and moved on to more mature fandoms, but it was a fun costume to wear, and really easy to spot in a crowd. XD
What is your favorite costume and why?
My favorite costume thus far probably has to be Mello, simply because of all the work that went into a costume that was supposed to be so easy.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
I'd love to try and make a costume from Le Chevalier D'eon, but my sewing skills are at novice level, at best. Getting to that point is a long ways off!
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
adjusting my Mello costume the day of AX. @_@
Do you participate in masquerades?
No. I don't completely make my costumes because I'm not that skilled yet, but I have a lot of creative ideas for skits that would be a ton of fun to perform.
Tell us a little about yourself
I'm currently attending California state University, San Bernardino as a Theatre Education major. I'm hoping to go for my masters, and maybe even a PhD in education. My family is down in San Diego, where I'm from, so I don't see that much of them. But it was a crowded house, so I'm glad to be out on my own. My hobbies include performing in plays through my school, anime, cosplay, drawing, and making cosplay videos for youtube. I have plenty of problems, just like everyone else, and I'm a full time student, so no job...uh...That's it, really. D:
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
