What got you into cosplay?
I went to a convention in 2008 and thought it looked like a lot of fun. I decided to try my hand at it and am now insanely in love with it.
What was your first costume and why?
My first one was a Riza Hawkeye cosplay (which I've since updated). I choose that one since I didn't trust myself with a sewing machine at the time and preferred to buy pieces to a costume rather than making them. Plus, I love Hawkeye. She's a fantastic member of the FMA cast.
What is your favorite costume and why?
Frau (casual). Hands down. I love going as Frau; he’s an awesome character to go as and I love having his scythe.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Sort of? I'd love to do a cosplay for a character from Black Butler/Kuroshitsuji, but... I don't really know which one though... XD Their outfits are sooooo pretty though! ^_^
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Probably cosplaying as Starfire at the San Diego Comic Con 2009. It took about four weeks to make it, but it was totally worth it. I loved finally being able to go to SDCC and I had a blast meeting other cosplayers there as well.
Do you participate in masquerades?
I haven't yet, but I wouldn't say no to one if it was a decent skit. ^_^
Tell us a little about yourself
I'm in school right now and majoring in Film. I like to read and write, but recently, crafting has become a hobby of mine as well. I'm always thinking of new ways to improve my costumes, so even if I post something as 80 or 90 percent done, it's probably 100 percent done and I'm just being picky about it. As for pictures of my costumes, I'll try to get good ones up as soon as I can.
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
Can't wait for the next convention! :)
