What got you into cosplay?
I love to play dress up ^___^ (Seriously, I'm like a little girl)
What was your first costume and why?
Schuldich, from Weiss Kreuz; My friend needed someone els from Weiss to go with her Omi costume, and I guess I look vaguely like Schuldich
What is your favorite costume and why?
My berserker Rikku, it was my first major award and I was completely hand sewn ^_^.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Nuriko, he's been my very favorite character since I was just a newbie, and I really want to make one of his costumes wonderfully because he is such a special character to me.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Saturday of Anime Detour '04, I ended up changing my costume about 4 times (from Theif Rikku to Eiji to Songstress Rikku and then back to Eiji) And putting up and taking down the Rikku hair twice ^^;;
Do you participate in masquerades?
Yeah, I love chatting with other costumers in the greenroom ^_^
What was your best masquerade experience?
CONvergence 2005, I LOVE they way their masq. is set up and it was a ton of fun!
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Yup, got an Award of Excellence for my Songstress Rikku at Anime Detour '04
plus hall awards for my Ed Elric and Roy Mustang at AD '05
also Best in Class Novice at CONvergence 2005 (for Berserker Rikku)
and Best Group at AI '05 for the FMA group I was in/costumed (though most of the credit goes to Mario for being an awesome awesome Hughes)
Tell us a little about yourself

I love my Job at Hancock fabrics for the wonderful 20% employee discount.
Hobbies!? Other than cosplay!? Digital graphics stuffs, Knitting, sewing, cooking, yaoi
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
I'm a raging fangirl, especially when it comes to yaoi ^______^.
Also, doing my Rikku hair lowers my IQ by approximatly 53 points
Quote from me while under the influence of Rikku Hair:
"So as we were like walking in, I like looked inside, and I was like OMG! there's another Songstress Rikku here, she looks totally like me, but then like I realized it was my refection in the glass door!"
