What got you into cosplay?
I love to sew and at the time I was really starting to get into anime, so cosplay seemed great cause it combined the two things I love most.
What was your first costume and why?
Inuyasha, because being a demon seemed fun!
What is your favorite costume and why?
The Ciel Phantomhive costume, because it's so deliciously opulent.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Rondo from Eternal Sonata
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
When I cosplayed Temari from Naruto, I made the big almost 6 foot fan from scratch. At the convention a person stopped me to ask for my picture, and the second I opened my fan a huge crowd of people converged to get a picture of it. It was really fun!!!
Do you participate in masquerades?
I will be participating in my first this spring
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
I did win 3rd place for my Ciel Phantomhive costume. I don't think I'm going to enter anymore competitions, that took a good chunk out of my day doing that.
