What got you into cosplay?
I joined my high school's anime club freshman year. And they all dragged me to ACen, told me to cosplay.
Have always made my costumes. Love-in it since then.
Haven't missed an ACen yet.
What was your first costume and why?
It was my first con, and my first costume.
I was a freshman, had just found out all the shows that I had been watching forever were called ANIME, and at the time, was IN LOVE with Sanosuke from Rurouni Kenshin.
So I made a female variant of Sano.
What is your favorite costume and why?
Rikku. I will just continue to make it better. And can always roll back to it as a back up. And I know everyone will love it.
Now. As of Youmacon 09, I debuted [human] Luna from Sailor moon (with Artemis and Diana). I LOVED wearing it. And its not a costume that has been done by many other people.
So much fun.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
I'm actually about to start on of them for ACen10.
*waves finger* But, its a secret. =^___^=
Do you participate in masquerades?
I just started, with Youmacon09. And plan to at each con. And if not, at least do walk-ons.
What was your best masquerade experience?
Our Youmacon09 skit, with Man moon, we just got a memorable mention.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
No. Though Youma09 was the first time I've entered anything.
Tell us a little about yourself

My family consists of my mother, father, and I have one younger brother(3yrs younger than me).

I professional commission costumes and take photos(but will often do photo shoots for free).
