What got you into cosplay?
I have always knew how to sew. I started to get bored of just making daily outfits, so I went into making numerous evening gowns. Eventually that lost its challenge so I started to make costumes, but I had nowhere to wear them to. Cosplay became the solution to my defeat. I was introduce to cosplay through Fanime 2003.
What was your first costume and why?
My first costume as a cosplayer was doll 5 I chose this one because it was easy and because I only had 4 hours to complete it before the convention started. Really bad timing. However even though this costume was simple I really loved the character and her childlike demeanor yet at the same time she is highly complex.
What is your favorite costume and why?
I don't have one because I always fall in love with a new one. :D
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
My dream costume would include a magical poofer. You know the magical wind that goes under the dress and keeps it straight and you can run in it without tripping. Just like Robin's dress (witch hunter Robin). Oh I also love to have a magical mage staff that glows and sparkles.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
fanime 2004 my first convention
AX the biggest convention
Ani-magic meeting friends
Metreon the surrounding environment
Do you participate in masquerades?
YES, sometimes...I do less nowadays as they are pretty stressful.
What was your best masquerade experience?
No best experience, but the wait is the worst.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
8 awards total
3 hall cosplay
5 official masquerades
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
I dedicate a lot of my projects to my pet cats because they are there with me through out the whole process. They know the frustration and the success I go through. They pull all-nighters with me and snuggles me when I pass out from exhaustion.
