What got you into cosplay?
I went to my first con in 2006, and I was really amused how people could dress up as their favorite anime characters. I gave it a try in 2007, going as Yoko Kurama from Yu Yu Hakusho, and I loved it! A lot of people liked my cosplay and gave me hugs and even took pictures of me!
Nowadays, I try to improve on my older cosplays while trying to make some new ones. It takes a lot of time and money, lemme tell you, but I always love trying on a new cosplay at a big con!
What was your first costume and why?
Yoko Kurama was always my favorite anime character. Yu Yu Hakusho has been my favorite anime for years and I've always wanted to cosplay as one of the characters.
What is your favorite costume and why?
I try not to play favorites but Yoko is definitely my most well-made and fun-to-wear cosplay.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
I'm currently working on some awesome new cosplays. I wouldn't call them so much as a "dream" as I hope to make them into reality!
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Just shopping around in the exhibitor's hall and getting tackled and glomped by fan girls.
Always scary at first, but I like it. XD
Do you participate in masquerades?
No, not at the moment.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Nope! But I don't cosplay for the awards so it's cool.
