What got you into cosplay?
*Friend me on facebook!*
I started watching Naruto, and after that I got more into anime and manga. I was surfing youtube and saw some masquerades and thought it looked like loads of fun. I also love to sew so I thought it was a perfect marriage!
What was your first costume and why?
The original musketeer and elementalist costume from Granado Espada. I had a lot of free time after a car accident left me in many casts, and after I started watching Naruto I pretty much just surfed the web all the time for cool anime/game things. A picture from this MMORPG popped up and I thought the costumes were so gorgeous that I ended up downloading the game and started playing so I could get screenshots of all of the costumes from every angle :P
What is your favorite costume and why?
There are too many to list! D:
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
The entire collection of Granado Espada costumes...wow, good thing it's just a dream O_O
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Not having my costumes done before going AB '10 and not sleeping (and barely eating) for like freaking 5 days to finish them. I finished them literally a few minutes before our craftsmanship judging and then we ran to the judging room and then ended up winning. Definitely best memory so far!
Do you participate in masquerades?
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
1st place in Master Craftsmanship at Anime Boston 2010. Best Master Costume Overall Weekend Katsucon 2011
