What got you into cosplay?
I've been watching anime since I was... well... born pretty much. I managed to hitch a ride to Sakuracon 08 with a work friend of my moms. I've been going to S-con and K-con ever since.
What was your first costume and why?
My first at con cosplay was L Lawliet. It was simple, cheap and easy, and I had no cash left over for costumes. It was also very short notice that I even went to my first con in the first place.
What is your favorite costume and why?
So far... my new favorite Asuka Kazama or Lady or Paine. Paine because it's so difficult to wear :D It makes it interesting. Lady because it's so ridiculous, and Asuka cause shes a favorite of mine. My old favorite was Anko
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
I would like to do Raiden in his new cyborg suit from the new game. I want to do Fran from FF12, but shes too dark. I want to do Ryoko from Tenchi, Lain's bear suit :D Juri from YYH. Lulu from FFX and Penance/Hollow from X-men
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
All the bros I meet every con. There hasn't been one con where I haven't made more friends.
Do you participate in masquerades?
I have before. I had a specific cosplay for it. It was a genderbend Joker.
What was your best masquerade experience?
When I worked at Kumori-con, I was the Joker and I had to do rounds, but I got a break after line rounds for the Masq. and got to dance with my friends.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
My Ariel costume is featured in a magazine as prettiest Disney Princess.
Tell us a little about yourself
I'm going to college to be a high school teacher. I live with friends and I work at Carl's Jr. I like to make costumes, play video games, write and act. I also play Ultimate Frisbee.
