What got you into cosplay?
Going to anime conventions and seeing all the other amazing cosplayers out there, and my friends who had been cosplaying before me, specifically Midge. =)
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Something from The Legend of Zelda games. I'm surprised I haven't done one yet b/c I've been a fan for so long. I guess I've also been putting it off b/c I want it to be perfect.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Staying up until 4am working on costumes the night before ACen 2009 ^_^
It was like a cosplay sweatshop: two sewing machines going, one iron, and people cutting fabric.
Do you participate in masquerades?
Yes, I've performed at ACen's Masq in 2008 and 2009. Both were wonderful experiences. The thrill of being onstage and people clapping and laughing is so amazing. =)
I also performed at OMG! Con's Masquerade in 2009. It was much different from ACen's stage but still a really fun experience.
What was your best masquerade experience?
Winning runner-up Best Skit at ACen 2009's Masq.
We didn't realize that it was our group that had been called so we just kept sitting in our seats until the group next to us informed us that we had won. =P
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Tell us a little about yourself
I recently graduated college and I have to start working in a real job now. =P
I've been working with The Enthusiasts. We've been covering a lot amazing and fun events, like Chicago Zombie March and other anime conventions in the Midwest. Be sure to look out for us!!!
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
I like candy. =)
