What got you into cosplay?
Halloween only comes once a year. Having to wait that long for an excuse to dress up just isn't enough! Cosplay is a nice reason to get to wear whatever you want and be whoever you want. ^^
What was your first costume and why?
First one that could be considered cosplay? Em...Oh! There was this sort of anime day at the theatre in NoHo when I was in middle school, and my friend told me about it like the night before and said we should go dressed up, so I just had to throw something together that night. I was Bakura, from Yu-Gi-Oh! Nothing special, considering the very limited time I had. ^^;
What is your favorite costume and why?
Inazuma! Cuz it's awesome~! :3 As far as everyone knows, I'm the first person ever to cosplay as him (How can you tell? Well, apart from the dates on my photos and all, my outfit is still black and white. I was halfway done with it by the time the colorspread came out, so I'm still manga colors.), and I always feel a special sense of accomplishment when I wear it because of that. Anyway, apart from that, I'm very happy with how it turned out and I love wearing it (it's quite comfy).
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Aeon from Castlevania: Judgement. He. Is. Epic.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Getting "married" in my Gokudera cosplay to my friend who was cosplaying Adult!Lambo. XD We went to the park and had a party, and all my friends had to come in cosplay. We had quite a crew!
Do you participate in masquerades?
I'd like to someday. =3
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Tell us a little about yourself
I'm a grad school student who currently works at a pet store. :3 I like reading, drawing, sleeping, playing OP D&D with my nakama, and RPing with my lil' sister Chelsea and my twin Waterwindow. =3 I also have the greatest boyfriend in the world, and I love him heaps.
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
I'm a yaoi fan, but I can be picky about my pairings sometimes. >w> But IceburgxFranky is the best pairing EVER and always will be.
