What got you into cosplay?
A few friends of mine a few years back went to a little Anime Festival held at a college. It was the first time I say anyone in costume and loved the playful atmosphere. I've decided that I wanted to cosplay at every convention that I went to after that.
What was your first costume and why?
Oh god, this question. LOL. My first costume was a VERY plain Cain from GodChild. You can't even really called it a costume. All it was consisted of was a plain white dress shirt, black slacks and boots. I just threw something together since we learned about the 'convention' a week before it happened. I can't even find any pictures lying around of that one though, thank GOD!
What is your favorite costume and why?
Hmm, right NOW its my Boa Hancock costume. Because it was the first one that I did on my own and put a lot of effort into. Before that one I had a commission and I felt a bit ashamed walking around and accepting compliments. Everything down to the stitching was done with effort. I didn't even care that it wasn't perfect and that it was done before the official colors were released. I just wanted to do the costume first and have A LOT of fun with it ^^
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
My dream costume used to be Akasha from Queen of the Damned. I recently accomplished the task (still having nightmares) and hope to make a better revised version in a few years or so. Right now, I'm playing around with ideas.Aphrodite from Saint Seiya is just a guilty pleasure of mine. I hope to one day make it. XD
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Wearing Akasha at Megacon. I remember freaking out in the hotel room, trying to convince myself that the costume wasn't bad. As soon as we got to the convention center, I was surprised that so many people stopped me for a picture. Never thought I'd see the day! XD
Do you participate in masquerades?
My last masquerade was Jacon 2006. And I haven't gone to one since. I guess I should give it a shot. But I'm mostly so wrapped up in other things that I completely forget about the masquerades. ^_^
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Won a Hall Costume Award at Megacon 2010. Totally took me by surprise!
