What got you into cosplay?
I was with a few of my friends back in freshman year of my high school when they first started talking to me about Anime Expo. At the time, it had just taken place, so I got to deciding on who I wanted to dress as for the following years Anime Expo. I experimented with it on Halloween.
What was your first costume and why?
My first costume was Inuzuka Kiba from Naruto, I was a newbie at cosplaying then, and the outfit was given to me by a friend who had cosplayed him before.
He ironically had already been my favorite character from the series, but since that was back in 2006, I've moved onto bigger things.
What is your favorite costume and why?
My favorite costume would probably have to be Dhalsim's outfit. It's easy to make, but to actually look like him is where it takes some skill.
I am skinny but toned, so it has been a great experience and a lot of fun.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
I dream of making Zero's outfit, (Code Geass: Lelouche of the Rebellion), it's so stylish, and since people with darker skin tones, like myself have difficulty cosplaying, an outfit that covers everything would be the best.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
My most memorable experience by far would have to be at Anime Expo in Long Beach of 2007. I was dressed as Captain Jack Sparrow, and when I had rounded a corner outside to the entrance of the Expo Center, there was a bus of tourists from Japan that had just emptied.
They all screamed and made me pose, but there were so many taking pictures, I was posing for a good five minutes. So, it's been engraved in my mind ever since.
Do you participate in masquerades?
No, I've yet to really get into one. But hopefully someday.
