What got you into cosplay?
I was looking at AMVs on Youtube when I clicked on a cosplay skit and I absolutely loved it - it just looked like so much fun. I then started searching deviantart and was in awe of how awesome the costumes people were making were. I talked to some of my friends about it and we decided to give it a go, too.
What was your first costume and why?
L from Death Note. Two of my friends were planning to be Matt and Mello for Halloween, so I asked if I could join them as L because he was my favourite character from the series (and he looked easy too!) and it all kind of snowballed from there.
What is your favorite costume and why?
I love being Ash. Pokemon was my favourite show as a kid and getting to cosplay him is just fantastic. It's also amazing to see how people react - especially little kids who recognise me, too.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Lots. Too many, in fact. At the moment, my dream would be any version of Link from Legend of Zelda. I'm a little too intimidated by the props to try it right now!
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Going to Fanime '09. It was amazing. Seeing the costumes some people could make was awe-inspiring.
Do you participate in masquerades?
After being convinced by my friends I took part in the Masquerade at Eirtakon 2010... I felt so awkward on stage xD
Tell us a little about yourself
I'm in my second last year of school and am working pretty hard at it, so unfortunately I don't have much free time to dedicate to cosplay right now. I don't mind though - I'm quite a nerd and love learning xD
