What got you into cosplay?
always made costumes and liked manga & video games....discovered cosplay and it just fit.
What was your first costume and why?
Lilith. My husband is into fighting games, and I always liked her.
What is your favorite costume and why?
Morrigan. There's something satisfying about cosplaying a character very overdone---yet in a new way.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Kei from Adam warrens dirty pair. But unless I start working out daily and suddenly be able to tan, that aint ever happening! I think Rita Repulsa from Power Rangers comes in second.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
meeting people through this hobby has been wonderful. All my best friends were through cosplay, one way or the other.
Do you participate in masquerades?
rarely. I'm not competitive, although i like creating skits for fun's sake on rare occasion. I just love making costumes. competing makes it too stressful in my experience.
What was your best masquerade experience?
AWA 01, when i won best in show for Shiva. because it was my first award, it was the most exciting. My husband was so proud and cheering me like crazy.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
yep. 4 best in show masquerade, and 2 best in show hall contests, and a few hall awards. but generally like i said, i hate competing. my attention span is too short. i like hanging out better than waiting in line to walk on a stage.
