What got you into cosplay?
On 2006, I went to the Video Games Live concert in Rio de Janeiro. There, I saw two wonderful cosplayers, Yuki (yukilefay) and Vingaard (vingaard) cosplaying as Cloud and Sephiroth, from Final Fantasy VII. I was fascinated seeing two of my favorite characters fighting right in front of me, so I decided to research about that. I ended up finding out about cosplay and decided to try it out ^^
What was your first costume and why?
My first costume was my Professor, from Ragnarök Online. By the time I made my first costume, I used to play that game everyday and my favorite class was the Professor, so I decided to start cosplaying as one ^^
What is your favorite costume and why?
My favorite cosplay is my Lord Braska, from Final Fantasy X, because I worked very hard with my mom to make that staff and all the accessories and they all ended up really beautiful.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
My dream costume is Emperor Geldoblame, from Baten Kaitos (ok, I admit that he looks like an old lady, but he is so cool and evil *-*)
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
It was when my photo got into Cosmode #031. I always saw those great cosplayers there and thought that I would never be able to get one of my pictures there. I was really surprised and happy when I saw that actually I could.
Do you participate in masquerades?
What was your best masquerade experience?
It was when I performed as Lord Braska, doing a monologue. Basically, the text was a message from Braska to Yuna that he recorded knowing that he would die on his pilgrimage. It's very poetic and touching and I loved when I made some people on the audience get really emotional and nearly cry because of my skit ^^
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
My Lord Braska won a 3rd place for Best Male Cosplay of The Year at Cosplay Brasil Awards and 3rd place for Best Traditional Skit on Garça's Cherry Blossom Festival.
