What got you into cosplay?
Nothing really. I just like to show off my love for Dir en grey
What was your first costume and why?
My first costume was Larva from Vampire Princess Miyu, but ultimately it sucked. I could kick myself for doing it cause I didn't have it all put together, nor did I know how to cosplay.
I don't even consider that one a cosplay...
My second one was Kyo (DIR EN GREY) in his "The Final" outfit, but that sucked too.
So, my first real cosplay was Kyo in his "Obscure PV" outfit. I did it because it was a challenge & I wanted to prove that I can be a good cosplayer (plus, it's fun). I see a lot of half-ass kyo cosplayers so I wanted to make mine realistic & right to the small details.
What is your favorite costume and why?
Kyo in his Obscure oufit. I loved the fact of hiding my whole face, it makes the cosplay more believable & I love the artistic creepiness behind the outfit itself. It's also very random and I love to scare people :D
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
I'd love to do all the Kyo DIR EN GREY outfits. My one favorite would be to re-do "THE FINAL" & make the "SAKU" outfit. "Drain Away" would be fun too.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
One girl squealed and tried to lift me into the air as she hugged me tightly (she was shorter than me).
Also, I was on my way to a Jrock photoshoot and these girls saw me, grabbed me and pushed me out the doorway to the photo shoot yelling: "WE'VE GOT A KYO! AND A GOOD ONE TOO!"...that made me happy :]
Do you participate in masquerades?
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
