What got you into cosplay?
I had heard from my friends before Anime Expo 2001 that most people dressed up like their favorite characters. Being a sheep, I dressed up.
What was your first costume and why?
Jessie/Musashi from Pocket Monsters because she was my favorite character back then (shush)
What is your favorite costume and why?
I like a lot of aspects of each of my costumes so this is hard! I guess I have a soft spot for Russell Tringham because no one else cosplays him.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Arranaro from Bleach in his true form just because it'd be so fun to walk around and scare people with. It's also uber difficult so it's probably going to remain a dream.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Too chicken to ever enter contests. I am content with dressing up with my friends.
Tell us a little about yourself
Graduated from USC as a BA in Fine Arts in 2008. Whoo.
My other hobbies include drawing, tennis, and film.
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
Most if not all of my cosplay photographs have been taken by Vincent Diamante since 2007 (http://www.apocalypsewow.com/).
I owe him a lot for all the work and the length he's done to capture such great shots!
Also, I have a tendency to be slow on uploading pictures as well as in order. So sometimes I'll upload old cosplay pictures from ages ago along with current things.
