What got you into cosplay?
my friend practically forced me into it
What was your first costume and why?
Ash Ketchum from Pokemon. I love Pokemon and all the main girls were taken... (except Dawn, but I really didn't want to be her. Heh, I didn't even really know what her name was until after that convention)
What is your favorite costume and why?
My favorite would have to be Demyx just because he is so much fun to cosplay and everyone seems to love his character. ^-^
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Chrono from Chrono Crusade. I love his character and my friend will be my Rosette when we decide to do them. However, I really need to work a lot to be able to do him.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
There have been a lot. Over the past few cons, I've made a ton of friends that have expanded my cosplay group as well as met my first boyfriend (Oni-Con 2011). I guess, Anime Matsuri 2012 sticks out in my mind because it was my most recent one. I met a ton of awesome people, nearly filled my Organization group, and learned that running an artist alley table is crazy. It was also the first con that I spent with my boyfriend and we took Akudemy pictures together.
Do you participate in masquerades?
Not yet, but my first one will be at San Japan 2012.
