What got you into cosplay?
I've always enjoyed expressing my interest in a movie, series, book or what have you... So cosplay just came natural for me.
What was your first costume and why?
My first costume was actually a generic Jedi Knight outfit. Why? Because there was a "Star Wars Celebration" coming up, and I wanted to have a costume.
Since than my collection has, of course, grown...
What is your favorite costume and why?
Right now that's going to have to be my B-wing pilot, as seen in Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi. I've put a lot of money into the costume and a few years of work, and while I continue to make improvements to it, it's really come out well. It's one of the most (if not the most) accurate fan-made B-wing pilot costumes yet.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
I'd actually like to make a Gundam cosplay... Of the RX-78-2 Gundam, or possibly a GM or GM Cannon. I think that would be fun!
There are also various characters I'd like to cosplay as... But I should probably lose some weight first.
Of course, I would also love to pull off a stormtrooper, or even Darth Vader!
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
The Star Wars Celebrations (mainly V and VI) have been wonderful experiences for me, and I've had a lot of fun, especially with the Rebel Legion. The group photo shoots are always a blast.
Do you participate in masquerades?
Not yet, but maybe one day.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Other than admiration, no, I have not.
