What got you into cosplay?
Dressing up as characters and being that person for a day was always fun. Plus I needed to learn how to sew and making cosplays was a good way to learn (and it gives me something to do)
What was your first costume and why?
Katara, from avatar. I did this one for costume day at school, but it was mostly spur of the moment. I've yet to cosplay her for a convention and I probably won't
What is your favorite costume and why?
Deidara. He's the perfect cosplay for me. My hairstyle makes me look like him w/o trying, I'm a clay artist, easily annoyed, and the same height (5' 5"). Plus I love the Akatsuki to begin with, so i jumped at the opportunity to cosplay as one of them.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Cynder, from The Legend of Spyro, I guess. Its something I'd like to do someday, but I don't know if I will.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
At AWA 14 (2008) my friends and I were hanging around near the parking lot waiting for someone's ride. Suddenly we hear someone yell "We love you Deidara!". When I turn around, a van goes by with 4 girls hanging out out of the window waving at me. My friend says that I would've been kidnapped if they hadn't been driving away
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
I'm going to enter a few contests in the near future, so we'll see.
Tell us a little about yourself
Right now I'm in my senior year of high school. I'm an artist, mostly drawing and sculpture, play violin, keyboard, and guitar, and swim.
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
I love dragons and collect plushies
