What got you into cosplay?
I actually didn't get into it for a while. I liked looking at other people's cosplay, but people I knew outside of the internet made fun of it, so I was reluctant to try. That, and I thought I was too old. I used to love dressing up for Halloween though, and acting is always fun, so I decided to give in and give it a go! It was actually a friend that I first met over the internet as well as a couple cosplayers that really got me to go ahead and try it.
What was your first costume and why?
Izuru Kira, Asato Tsuzuki and Ukyou Sakuraiji are the three I got together for my first convention. Why them? They were simple for a first time and are among my favorite characters.
What is your favorite costume and why?
Probably Guy Cecil. I had a lot of fun being him, especially during the photoshoot when the girls decided to pick me up and drag me away after I pretended to be unconscious from being touched too much, hah hah.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Ninian from Fire Emblem is one I'd really like to make when I have the skills. I really like her character, and I'd feel quite accomplished if I could make that outfit.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Anime Boston 2011. I got along with the Tales of group so easily- I'm usually very shy and quiet around people I don't know, but I had absolutely no problem opening up to them, talking and hugging them despite having never met them before. The photoshoot Friday when I was Guy was also quite interesting, as mentioned above. Also, having people rave over my Hisoka plushie! I had a couple people taking pictures and telling me how adorable it was, that really made me proud of my work. <3
Do you participate in masquerades?
I will someday, since I do love skits.
Tell us a little about yourself
I've completed the Early Childhood Education program at URI and plan to teach preschool and Kindergarten. My main hobbies are gaming and cosplaying. I like to make my own costumes (though I'm still a beginner), and I am a beginner at making little plushies as well.
