What got you into cosplay?
I saw a friend cosplaying Zia from mysterious gold cities and then I wanted to cosplay too.
What was your first costume and why?
Merle because she's cute
What is your favorite costume and why?
Astharoshe Asran because it was the hardest costume ever done by me, and it was a success.
And also the fighter from Granado Espada, cause we were very cool and had a huge success. I guess it's the costume that fits me better.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Seth, Miruka Fortuna and Queen Esther from Trinity Blood.
Also Marie-Entoinette form the movie, and lots of Victorian Dresses
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
When I first got on scene cosplaying Merle, everybody applaused and said I was great. That was my first memorable experience.
Recently, I have been selected for the cosplay summit 2006 to represent my country, France with my Astharoshe Asran costume (along with Lena, the girl who cosplayed Zia a long time ago and inspired me into cosplay. She was cosplaying Kaya from Trinity Blood.)
Do you participate in masquerades?
What was your best masquerade experience?
When the japanese jury announced our duo as the one selected for the cosplay summit at Japan Expo 2006.
I had a lot of great experiences, it changes every time, but being selected is something.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Yes : 2nd place for Merle from Escaflowne, 4th place for Evila from Space Channel 5 and Ruchielu from Magna Carta, 3rd place for Mai hime, 4th place for our C.A.T cute trio, 3rd place for our huge Trinity Blood group in costume quality category, selections for the WCS for our Trinity Blood duo, 1st costume quality and public's choice for golden angel, 1st costume quality for Yűko, 2nd costume quality for Granado Espada, 1st costume quality for Saint Seiya Golden Angels, 1st for our 2nd group from Granado Espada and some others I don't remember...
Honestly I can't and won't list them all, but my pride is having been selected for WCS in 2006.
