What got you into cosplay?
I grew up and still currently live in a halloween town. Fearborn (Fairborn) is home to the Foy's Halloween store. Every Halloween we have a parade and a competition for best costume within certain age groups. I've always been interested in anime, cosplay, costumes, and fantasy.
What was your first costume and why?
My first costume would be a cat... but my mom made it for me. I've always been in love with animals and cats even more so.
What is your favorite costume and why?
I love the 17th century, 18th century, renaissance, fantasy... Basically anything that makes me look as regal as a queen or goddess even. I love big flouncy skirts, hoopskirts, lobster cages, the 6 hoop ball gowns. I also really love anything that is fantasy, lolita, gothic, ballgown, steampunk, and victorian.
In other words I don't have a favorite I just have a lot of style.
Do you participate in masquerades?
Haven't yet but I am only in college (soon to be sophomore at good ol' Amherst :3) I do plan on attending various vampire masquerades and just cosplay for fun. Probably won't participate in actual competitions or anything.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Haven't made any or had the chance to go to a con yet.
