What got you into cosplay?
Honestly, my fiance. He asked me if i wanted to go to a small convention. When he told me that people wore costumes that they made, I got excited about that and decided (since i was already making our halloween costumes) that wed use them for the con. I entered the cosplay contest, won best prop, and have been addicted to it ever since!!
What was your first costume and why?
Malon from Ocarina of Time. It was a pair to my fiance's Link costume I made him. <3
What is your favorite costume and why?
Than Ive worn, Nico Robin (Alabasta) from One Piece. Im beyond happy with how it turned out and it attracts other One Piece fans! haha
That Ive made for someone else, Brook from One Piece. Im very pleased with my work on that one.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
I have a couple floating around in my head. One of which im working on.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Hhmmm.....Drunk One Piece guy. This guy came up to me and he was kinda drunk. (it was an 18+ con). I was wearing my Miss All Sunday/ Robin cosplay and he started talking about how much he loved one piece. We ended up talking about One Piece for a while and lets just say he got a little emotional.
Do you participate in masquerades?
No. Ive never done a skit, but I have done a walk on in a fashion show.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
So far ive won 3 awards total.
