What got you into cosplay?
Well, I've been an anime fan for quite awhile now (since I was in 7th grade). My friend and I went to our first con (AX) in 2002, and we saw people dressed up as anime characters. We vowed, "Next year we are soooo dressing up!!" So that was it.
What was your first costume and why?
Technically? I made a makeshift Chang Wufei for Halloween so I could trick-or-treat.
For AX2003 I dressed up as a random school girl and Relena Peacecraft. I choose Relena because I wanted to do a girl from Gundam Wing, and at the time she was fairly recognizable.
What is your favorite costume and why?
It is very hard to say, since all of my costumes have something I like about them! My top TOP favorites are probably Ahiru, America and Sora.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Yes! A few of them. XD
1.) A gundam! Seriously, it would be cool to pull that off.
2.) Space Paranoids Sora! I want to GLOW.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Meeting Kiba's English VA, Kyle Hebert, at ALA2006 when I was dressed as Kiba.
Meeting Luci Christian when I was dressed as Duck/Ahiru at AX '08!
Participating in Video Games Live in Los Angeles in October, dressed as Sora~
Do you participate in masquerades?
Nope! Maybe someday?
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
First place in ACP's Soul Eater contest, 1st place in Cosplay Lab's LJ Kingdom Hearts contest and various hall cosplay ribbons but IDK if those count xD;
I don't really do a lot of cosplay competition events.
Tell us a little about yourself
My name is Amy! I'm 26, from California and I'm a Christian.
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
I have an unhealthy obsession when it comes to owls and buffalo. I DON'T KNOW. I like collecting things with owls or buffalo on them. ....
