About Me / Q&A

What got you into cosplay?
After getting sick and tired of seeing the run of the mill costumes, I wanted to challenge myself and create costumes from video games and anime's.
What was your first costume and why?
The Red Mage Artifact Armor from Final Fantasy XI. Since the first Final Fantasy, I have been in love with the Red Mage job and it is one that I still treasure to this day. My favorite armor is the one from Final Fantasy XI.
What is your favorite costume and why?
My current favorite is my Jill Valentine costume from Resident Evil 5. Mostly because I am proud of myself for making something that was so intricate and with fabric that I had never used before. A few tweaks to make, but I was happy with the overall outcome.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
I would love to find a way to make Jenova from Final Fantasy 7. Totally not feasable with my budget, but that's why it's a dream costume.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
A-kon 20 (2009). Mostly because I had to be asked by almost everyone who I was dressed up as. :( Kids these days need to watch more Evangelion! But when I found my Eva comrads, it made the day better.
Do you participate in masquerades?
n/a
What was your best masquerade experience?
n/a
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
No, but as a costume nub it's understandable.
Tell us a little about yourself
Currently in school working on my PhD in film studies.
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
Clearly my name shows that I have an affinity for Final Fantasy, but I have a general respect for all forms of Japanese entertainment.
