What got you into cosplay?
I first came in contact with cosplay by reading AnimaniA, a german anime and manga magazine and later the community of animexx.de. Later, when I ordered my ticket for AnimagiC 2003 I was already determined to try it myself. I didn't know many animes or mangas at that time but one series got me hooked. Dragonball. My favourite character was The Great Sayaman, so naturally I was eager to cosplay him. I've never sewed before, nor did I know how to start, so what I did was buy some cheap cloth, take my fathers sewing machine and just start.
My finished cosplay was abysmal. (Not that I would have noticed it at the time) and I am deeply ashamed for the pictures that were taken of me. But it was fun.
Last year I took what was left of it and renewed everything, so I could roam the streets as Sayaman again.
I'll never forget the night before the convention. I helped a friend of mine to finish her dress by attaching countless safety pins and push buttons to it. Nethertheless, the next day she looked like she would burst at any moment.
What was your first costume and why?
The Great Saiyaman was my first and now my last costume. He is my favourite charakter of Dragonball manga and I know I have to cosplay him!
What is your favorite costume and why?
Hm... probably my Druid Tier6. I love it's natural and wild look and it just a great feeling, to be someone different. It was also awesome to be so... hm... sexy! I liked it a lot and my staff Journey's End is still my favourite one!
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Oh yeeeees: Bumblebee from Transformers. I will cosplay it someday, I know it!
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
I guess, it was this awesome weekend at Blizzcon 2009. I never expected to win something so amazing like a free trip to Anaheim and to met so much and so nice people. These days motivated me a lot to keep on working and to improve my skills and I hope to be there someday again!
Do you participate in masquerades?
Yeah! I love to go on stage and to play my character!
