What got you into cosplay?
I don't quite remember. I always liked to play dress-up when I was little, so I'm assuming subconsciously that's why I'm drawn to it. I also think it had something to do with seeing specific people on deviantART who made it look so appealing that I thought it'd be cool to try out, and what do you know...I'm hooked.
What was your first costume and why?
Axel and I'm not sure why. He was always my fave... Or maybe it was because he's so sexy? Ha ha. Or was it Hayner officially at a Halloween party in Canada, although it was hard to stay in character... I guess it all depends how you look at it.
What is your favorite costume and why?
Well, it was Axel from Kingdom Hearts 2...Now it's Undertaker from Black Butler/Kuroshitsuji. He's so fun, with his insatiable love for the dead and all. Ha ha.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Being Weeping Angel during a Doctor Who panel at Colossalcon11 where I reentered the panel just in time for the photoshoot and the host of the panel kept saying "don't blink, don't blink, don't blink" yet I still moved closer while everyone stared at me. Poke as Cleric Bob told the 10th Doctor (panel host) that the angels had a message for them, "not blinking doesn't work anymore..." - Everyone stared, it was hilarious. Though the same goes for the entire con because they'd keep their eyes on me at all times due to not wanting to blink!
Do you participate in masquerades?
Sometimes, but don't know about the future because it mostly eats up a Saturday...
What was your best masquerade experience?
Basically participating in any masquerade was my best experience...I like to remember the hype people have when you walk onto the stage in costume or when you do a skit... I've participated in the craftsmanship competition/hall cosplay (as Mad Hatter Undertaker) at Youmacon 2013; craftsmanship competition/masquerade (as Mad Hatter Undertaker) at Ohayocon 2012; received Honorable Mention for craftsmanship (with Poke) at Youmacon 2011; received a Fanservice Award (with Poke) at UBConXXI 2010; and participated in the masquerade (as Roxas with Poke as Sora in an epic keyblade fight called "Somebody's Going Down") at Ohayocon 2010.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Novice, Friday Hall Cosplay - Mad Hatter Undertaker @ Youmacon 2013
