What got you into cosplay?
anime + halloween = first cosplay
It was really just a throw together kind of thing with the help of my mom. I didn't know about "cosplay" until I came to school in my costume and people asked if I cosplay.
After that, I just sort of started making cosplays for Halloween and conventions. It's just fun to dress up when everyone else is dressed up.
What was your first costume and why?
Sasuke... Why? Because I really liked Naruto at the time. This was back in 2003. The costume wasnt' that great, but a lot of people knew who I was.
What is your favorite costume and why?
Gintoki. I put in a lot of effort into it. The kimono came out a little short, but whatevers. I have to stop doing these things in the middle of the night when my mind isn't all there.
I'm also fairly proud of Tosshi's otaku katana that I made. It's not perfect, but I also put in a lot of time and effort into it. A security guard actually had to ask me to check the sword even though it was already peace bonded. :)
