What got you into cosplay?
Friends who wanted to go to comic-con! I cosplayed for Comic-Con after that, but now I'm actually getting into the scene. Going on the coscom forums, attending gatherings, etc.
What was your first costume and why?
"Generic pokemon schoolgirl" or something. Haha. I just made a basic sailor uniform and brought along a pokeball. My friends were supposed to cosplay and I thought hey, might as well. Out of my 6 friends who went, only 2 of us cosplayed. :(
What is your favorite costume and why?
Elsie! Because it was my first time sewing a full outfit.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Too many to count. Aisaka Taiga from Toradora, lots of Miku costumes (mostly Project Diva 2), Golden Sun, Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica, etc.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
After going to Anime Expo 2010, I think AX was the most memorable Con I've ever been to! I've always been going to SDCC, and while there's not too many cosplays at Comic-Con, there's so many amazing cosplayers at AX though! Not to mention I met an amazing guy before AX and we were friends... after Anime Expo we started dating. ;) So, thank you AX forums! Haha.
