What got you into cosplay?
When I went to my first con. I didn't even know that where actual conventions for cosplay. Lets just say when I first saw all the con goers having so much fun. A whole another world was introduced to me, and from then on I have just been addicted. Its my peace and love to make a fictional character to come to life. Its so inspiring to me to see cosplay, it is truly a art form of its own and has a huge community made up of the best people I've ever met.
What was your first costume and why?
My first official cosplay that I made myself was Yuuki Cross from Vampire Knight. I made that cosplay the summer I attended my 2nd convention, Otakon 2009. I was fully aware you could purchase it fully made, but I saw all of the other cosplayer and their dedication to their own creation and decided I too would create it. I was so happy with that as my first cosplay. I can honestly say now it I have improved so much from when I first started cosplaying.
What is your favorite costume and why?
My favorite cosplay to date had got to be without a doubt my Lightning (FF XIII) cosplay. I wore it for my 2nd ever Otakon and was recognized so much, and so many pictures taken, fanboyed/fangirled a lot I was filmed and met by Acksonl before he was ever really known. I also met some of the best people in that cosplay. I have some of the best memories ever in that cosplay. I also apparently look like Lightning according to many of my other friends.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Currently my dream cosplay would have to be 1/2 of the Shiva Sisters from (FF XIII). All that construction/details/body paint ><;;;
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Most memorable everyone's reaction to my Lightning cosplay, being filmed and interviewed by other people who wish to know about the cosplay world. Knowing how hard I worked that summer to fix up that cosplay.
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
