What got you into cosplay?
I liked the clothes they wore on anime better than what they sell in the stores, so I decided to make a closet of costumes to wear. Sad to say, it's hard to do when you're poor.
I later made it into an independent business called Wingless Angel Cosplay and then gave the business completely to God! It's a Christian Cosplay company that works purly for His Glory.
Wingless Angel Cosplay also has a facebook under the marque of the company.
What was your first costume and why?
My first costume was a Japanese School Girl, Kagome (InuYasha) because I thought it looked easy. It was much harder than I thought. But now I make school girl costumes no problem.
What is your favorite costume and why?
My favorite costume I've made so far has been my Beldandy costume. I made it for Junior Prom and ended up selling it to a friend for a con and that's where I got the idea to make Wingless Angel Cosplay.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
My dream costume? Hmmmm....probably Sakura's Dragonslayer costume. The headband and collar look like fun to make. And it's a pretty costume.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
People hoarding me for pictures and constantly complimenting my work. It's really nice of them. And it's all thanks to God!
Do you participate in masquerades?
I will next year for OniCon.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
I won an award for my Urd cosplay at Action on Film Festival in summer 2005.
Tell us a little about yourself
I'm the runner of Wingless Angel Cosplay. It's a business that belongs wholly and completely to God that's run by His loyal servant, Brandi (Phanari).
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
Please PM me and ask about my cosplay.
My favorite anime
Petshop of Horrors! IT'S THE BEST! Cardcaptors, Inuyasha, Evangelion, Jubei-chan (it's so ridiculous that you can't help but laugh your head off), Galaxy Angel, Angelic Layer, ANYTHING by CLAMP, Samurai X, and Cowboy Bebop.
My favorite game(s)
Any fighting game (especially DOA2 and Soul Calibur), Space Channel Five. I also like Tomb Raider, Spyro and Death Jr.
My favorite book(s)
Anything fantasy!!!! I just finished Eragon, I love the Silken Snare seriese, anything by Piers Anthony as long as it's fantasy. His Sci-Fi is a bit too raunchy for me. I don't mind that content in anime because I can just not pay attention, but when it's on paper, it's a whole other thing. I mostly read his Incarnations of Immortality series. I love the Incarnation of Death! That and Nature are my favorites.
My favorite character(s)
Faye Valentine, Spike, Kero-Chan, Kagura, Sesshoumaru, Yue, Kurama,
My favorite movies(s)
Mononoke, Cowboy Bebop Movie, and when it comes out in 2011 or whenever it comes out, Cowboy Bebop live action movie. I LOVE BEBOP ENOUGH TO LOOK PAST THE ACTORS!
