What got you into cosplay?
Costumes are more fun then normal clothes.
What was your first costume and why?
Sailor Jupiter's school uniform. It was when I was around sixth grade, my friend and I were going to a Halloween event and she was spending the night. (Yes we were guilty of watching Sailor Moon, but we were young.) We made our costumes in one night, so we used what we had available. For example I found scraps of fabric and used white out on them for the striped cuffs and then put them on our shirts with safety pins, we used tissue paper for the big bows and coloured on cardstock for Sailor Moon's locket. It worked out fairly well because my friend is a blond and I'm a brunette. She was way shorter then me too back then. Hee Hee looking back at our outfits they were horrible but fun.
What is your favorite costume and why?
Captain America! That monster was crazy! All the dying and man's pants.
Friends asked for Captain America to come to their son;s birthday. It was priceless. That face when Cap came to the door, awww!
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
One day I will transform into Seth Nightroad, novel illustration version. When that day comes, I will be fulfilled in my cosplay.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
My fiancee only gave me 4 days to make a Mugen costume from Samurai Champloo. When it was finished I ran around campus that night crosscosed as Mugen. My roommate followed me around with a camera as I acted "Mugen-ish" towards everyone we saw. It was great stress relief.
Do you participate in masquerades?
