What got you into cosplay?
Discovering a cosplay convention while staying at a hotel with my family during a vacation.
What was your first costume and why?
My first ever costume was a ballerina's recital costume I wore for halloween when I was 5. My first COSPLAY costume was Card Captor Sakura when I was 16.
What is your favorite costume and why?
My favorite costume is my Alice in Wonderland dress I acquired just last year. It was professionally made for me by a costume maker who works in NYC and is made of the best fabrics and comes with all the accessories!
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
If I learn to make my own costumes, I want a Coppelia costume. Coppelia is the lead character from a famous ballet of the same name, and he tutu/costume is based on a toy doll image. It would be cool to make this some sort of EGL version!
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Meeting up with 4 other Alices at a convention last year. We all had our pictures taken alot and we spent the afternoon hanging out and making the scene at the convention. Plus I was the only male Alice getting to hang with all the cute girl Alices, couldnt get much sweeter!
Do you participate in masquerades?
Yes. As much as possible.
What was your best masquerade experience?
Attending a Civil War theme masquerade a couple years ago and getting to wear an amazing Scarlet O'Hara-ish antebellum ball gown, complete with hoops.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
I won 2nd place for that just mentioned costume.
Tell us a little about yourself
College. I also dance with a local dance company (ballet of course) And I have danced girls roles before! Cosplay comes in handy for that! Also theatre, especially musical theatre.
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
Costumes are the best! If it was only appropriate to dress-up everyday, I would do it!
