What got you into cosplay?
The internet, Sailor Moon (mainly) and comic books.
What was your first costume and why?
For Halloween 2009, I was Sailor ChibiMoon
My first CON costume that I've made was my Nijihara, Ink from Moetan. It was a cute school girl costume and was for my very first convention. I was looking for pink haired characters with a friend or something in the same series that had blue hair for my friend to be. We came across the series on the ACD and checked it out and found the show to be cute!
I really like the character since she's bubbly, and is in high school but looks like a little kid. The show is hilarious, only lasted 13 episodes, and is a little bit dirty.
Another "first costume" that I made would be Plusle Gijinka from Pokemon.
What is your favorite costume and why?
My current favorite is Super Sailor Moon and Small Lady Serenity.
Super Sailor Moon: Little kids recognize the character and she's easy to identify, it's also pretty comfy to wear.
Small Lady Serenity because I get to feel like a princess.
My future favorites will probably STILL Be Sailor Moon of course. ;D
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Super Sailor Chibi Moon-manga version. The dream arc is an amazing series.
Also Princess Small Lady Chibiusa-manga version. Which I'm going to have prepared for Sakuracon 2011!-COMPLETED.
My new dream costumes are:
Zelda from a Link to the Past
Children of Mana-Tumble and Secret of Mana-the Amazoness princess.
And other characters from western media.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
The escalator high fives at SakuraCon 2010! It was amazing and past so much time! Just going up and down high fiving strangers, then going through out the halls and doing the same! Besides who wouldn't high five a cute girl? ;P
Performing on stage at Sakura Con as Sailor Moon.
Do you participate in masquerades?
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
An internet award, I came in second place as Link from Legend of Zelda for a halloween contest.
Tell us a little about yourself
I love sketching, writing, dancing and modeling, as well as fashion design.
I've always enjoyed comics, and Sailor Moon is my favorite anime/manga of all time, and I'm really drawn to magical girl stuff because of it.
I also really really enjoy the Sookie Stackhouse novels and TrueBlood.
I'm trying to get a new job, I do take costume commissions on occassion, and you can follow me on facebook!
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
I'm really friendly; I work for the D20 Girls Project as a model and an assistant manager, and I love to read Marvel comics.
