What got you into cosplay?
Well, i was a big fan of Anime...so when a friend invited me to an Anime convention i thought it would be something fun to try!
What was your first costume and why?
My first costume was hikaru from Magic Knight Rayearth. It was a mess! I had no idea how to sew and I didn't realize how hardcore people were when it came to making costumes!
What is your favorite costume and why?
So far I'd have to say My Ichigo (Tokyo Mew Mew) costume. There's something fun about being so bright and cute. Not to mention I loved making Masha.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
All of my future costumes are kinda like my dream costumes. I seriously have a power point with nothing but pictures of costumes I plan to make haha.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
They're all pretty memorable. One year I forgot my contacts at home and walked around blind the whole convention! Meeting new people and learning new techniques always makes it worth all the work.
Do you participate in masquerades?
I haven't yet, but maybe one day.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
In 2007, me and a group of friends had a Tokyo Mew Mew group that won 'Best Group' at AWA. It was a wonderful feeling to have all that hard work pay off.
