What got you into cosplay?
My city finally got an Anime convention of its own. I had always wanted to try cosplay, but this was the first opportunity I had to actually do it.
What was your first costume and why?
Madame Red from Black Butler/Kuroshitsuji. I found costumes from the series online and thought they were pretty so I looked in to the series. I fell in love with her character and just had to cosplay her.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Far too many to list here. :D
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
*Spoiler alert if you haven't read Black Butler/Kuroshitsuji*
This one guy came up to me when I was cosplaying Madame Red, gave me a hug, and said "I was so sad when you died!" Made my day. XD
Do you participate in masquerades?
Only once. I have a terrible case of stage fright. My first year, they were desperate for people to go on stage, even if it was just exhibition so my friend and I got goaded into going up there as Ciel and Madame Red.
Tell us a little about yourself
Currently a college student with a nearly full time job. I hope to graduate spring 2012. It is tough to balance everything, and I will be glad when school is over so I can earn more money and time for cosplay. And a pony. I have expensive hobbies. >.>
