What got you into cosplay?
I've always loved cosplayers, and it was something I wanted to be a part of because I like expressing my gratitude for the writers/artists who invent characters that I really enjoy reading about/watching a lot.
What was your first costume and why?
Shiranui Genma, from Naruto. I tend to flock to minor characters rather than major characters, and also to lesser-known fandoms. I like being an individual a lot, even in my cosplay.
What is your favorite costume and why?
I really love going as Mikami Teru from Death Note. You see a lot of Lights walking around, but they're always missing their Mikamis. I like to fill this need. :D
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
I want to go as Andromeda Saint Shun from Saint Seiya one day, with full armour. I WILL MAKE THIS HAPPEN ONE DAY. I've also wanted to do a Kanda Yu from D.Gray Man for a long time. Also, me and my friends want to do a Gurren Lagann group cosplay, with me as Viral. We're shooting for AWA 2010 for this, so keep your fingers crossed!
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Mikami Teru at AWA XIII 2007, along with my friends as the Wammy's Justice Club. So much fun!
Do you participate in masquerades?
I do not; I have yet to make a costume by hand. But when I make the aforementioned Saint costume, you can bet that I will!
