What got you into cosplay?
I like to sew, so cosplaying gives me an enjoyable outlet for making some radical articles of clothing. I also had friends who were into cosplaying, and it just sort of went from there.
What was your first costume and why?
Merle from Escaflowne. It was; and still is, one of my favorite anime's.
What is your favorite costume and why?
I don't really have a favorite costume. I love everything I've ever made for different reasons.
However, I have the most fun cosplaying Char. It's pretty comfortable, and I worked hard on all the costumes I've done for the character.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
I'm working on my dream cosplay for Otakon 2009. I thought it would be hard to make, but it's turned out to be a very straightforward process. ( I'll share what it is as soon as I debut it... I'm still kind of nervous about how I'll be recieved at the convention.)
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
I didn't think anyone would recognize me as Dr. Strange, but people at AWA 2008 kept glomping me for cosplaying the Sorcerer Supreme. ^_^
Do you participate in masquerades?
Don't have anyone to participate with :(
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Being well received by fellow fans is the best reward. :)
Tell us a little about yourself
I work full time, so cosplaying is really my only hobby at the moment. I build Gunpla ( Gundam plastic models) as well. I'm planning on getting my first Perfect grade soon.
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
