What got you into cosplay?
I always liked dressing up in costumes, so I found cosplay something natural to get into.
What was your first costume and why?
Vaati... I was a huge Vaati fangirl back in the day so it was a natural choice, haha. XD
What is your favorite costume and why?
I really enjoy wearing Panty - all the details are amazing and it makes me feel so pretty! But I also love wearing Shizuo Heiwajima too *_*
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
As far as "doable" dream cosplays go, I have several dream costumes from various Final Fantasy games that I want to make; right now my top dream is to cosplay Cloud Strife. :)
My current "unattainable" dream cosplay is Vampire Hunter D.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Probably A-fest 2009 and A-kon 2010. A-fest 2009 was my first experience in a pro photoshoot and cosplaying with a group (that kind of got gathered along the way), and I met the amazing Izaya-chan. :)
A-kon 2010 was just plain EPIC; it was the first convention I went to every day and I had 7 cosplays that I wore over the course of the convention. All of my cosplays turned out very well, and I am glad to say the hard group of myself and my friends that I cosplayed with definitely made the weekend for me! <3
Do you participate in masquerades?
I used to, but they take up a lot of time and my cosplay partner Izaya and I have found that a more relaxed convention is a more fun convention :)
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
A-kon 2010: 2nd place (Walk-on group: War of the Austrian Succession)
A-kon 2011: Best Craftsmanship (Friday Hall cosplay contest)
