What got you into cosplay?
Um... I really don't remember... I first heard about it online I think, but... I guess it just seemed natural to cosplay to a con.
What was your first costume and why?
Android #18 from Dragonball Z BECAUSE SHE'S KICK-ASS!!! XD Well, at the time, Dragonball Z was my favorite anime (and I still love it, but I've branched out more since then, I guess), and well, she's certainly my favorite character. :3 Plus, thinking from the perspective of "This is my first cosplay and I want it to not-suck", it's a fairly simple cosplay. I mean, I got all of my items at a thrift store... Granted, I had to modify the shirt and the vest, but that was the fun part. ^_^
What is your favorite costume and why?
I had a lot of fun in my gender-bent Altair cosplay. I really need to finish that one soon.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Story of Evil Rin. *-* That dress would be SO pretty!!! >.<
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
At Anime Expo 2008 (my first con and also where I did my first cosplay), someone stopped me in the dealer's room to tell me my cosplay was perfect. XP It was my first cosplay, so hearing someone compliment it using the word "perfect" made me happy. ^_^
Do you participate in masquerades?
I haven't yet, but I may in the future.
Tell us a little about yourself
I'm a college student. I like making AMVs, but I really haven't been doing much of it lately. =/ I edit with Sony Vegas. (It's my baby! <3) My usernames on YouTube are AmandyChan and xAmandyChan. I have my AMVs up there. ^_-
My favorite anime
Either Death Note or Code Geass. Some other ones that I REALLY love, though, are Ouran High School Host Club, Fullmetal Alchemist, and Dragonball Z.
My favorite game(s)
Definitely the Assassin's Creed series. But I'm also a big fan of Gears of War. I used to be obsessed with Kingdom Hearts, and even though I'm not AS into it as I used to be, it still holds a special place in my heart because it was the first game I was obsessed with.
My favorite character(s)
Vocaloid: Rin and Len. I love them both, and I like them best together, but if I had to pick one over the other, I'd pick Len.
Death Note: Misa. Quit picking on the poor girl. I actually like her. Sure, she got in Light's way sometimes, but that's what made her a good character. She wasn't as smart as Light or L, but she made her own decisions and didn't always do what Light said. Besides, you all know that no matter how smart you think you are, you'd look like a dumbass against Light, too. (Side note: Light pwns L, and in the end, L died first. *gets shot by an L fangirl*)
Kingdom Hearts: Riku. He's epic. End of story.
Ouran High School Host Club: Tamaki. He's hilarious.
Fullmetal Alchemist: Edward Elric...He's short. XP
Dragonball Z: Android 18. She. Kicks. Ass. Plus... she totally owned Vegeta. I must say, I enjoyed seeing the "prince of all Saiyans" (which basically amounts to five people) get his ass kicked by a woman. XDD So much for his Saiyan pride!!
