What got you into cosplay?
The NiGHTS into Dreams fanbase at NiGHTSintoDreams.com. I saw epic work there and knew I had to try it.
Additionally, I love creative challenges. Sewing was always fun for me, and cosplay gave me the chance to branch out beyond pillow cases!
What was your first costume and why?
NiGHTS from NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams!
I wanted something that would be a bit of a challenge, and seeing as how I was obsessed with that game at the time, I had to choose NiGHTS as my first cosplay.
What is your favorite costume and why?
I'm very pleased with the way Suki came out as a whole- it was definitely a construction challenge, but I get so much love from it! I feel like it's the most complex outfit I've attempted thus far, though I hope to try even more complicated outfits later on.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
If anything, my 'dream costume' would be Imagni from Lynne Triplett's comic Engelbaum. The makeup would be similar to that of Suki, complicated armouring and sewing techniques would be needed, I'd have to cast new ears and work with an incredibly long wig, as well as rig a tail and learn to survive in stiletto heels. It would be painfully gorgeous!
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Any time I spend with friends. :)
Do you participate in masquerades?
Not yet, but I hope to in the future!
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Honorable Mention, Katsucon Hall Costume Contest- not bad for my first cosplay!
