What got you into cosplay?
I first discovered cosplaying from Demyx Time. I had heard the word before from Ouran and a few other places but I wasn't entirely sure about what it was. After watching Demyx time, I had really wanted to try it. It looked really fun. I started by buying satin (REALLY BAD IDEA) and attemped to make Tifa's costume with a pattern made of newsprint paper. I't didn't really work out since I had too long of a zipper.
What was your first costume and why?
My first costume was Tifa Lockheart from Kingdom Hearts 2. It's finished, but I didn't do a very good job on it. I'm not planning on wearing it to a convention because I used Satin and It turned out horrible. I also had a very bad wig that my mom bought me from a party store. So my *official* first costume is be Deep Dive Riku. I had a lot of fun making it and wearing it too.--Even though it was REALLY hot, since I wore it in the beginning of September this year,....and I made it out of pleather! I loved wearing the wig and had lots of fun acting like Riku.
What is your favorite costume and why?
It would be Merida because it's fun to be a princess!
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
My dream costume, I'm not to sure of yet but I think that it would have to be somone with a detailed cosplay. I don't have a fixed cosplay yet because I have so many I want to do. I just want something challenging.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
The last day of Geek.kon 2012, I wore Neku and went to the Masquerade feedback panel and afterwords the people in charge were joking about something that happened during my tech rehersal the day before. I joined in and said something that had been mentioned, It was like, "Everyones named Jen now." and I had said that the day before. The head looked at me and I told her it happened during my tech rehersal. She said she didn't realize I was the same person because I was Yumi the day before. she said that meant I had a good cosplay. I was so proud.
Do you participate in masquerades?
What was your best masquerade experience?
Even though it was bad, the fire alarm before the masquerade. We all went outside and the three people and I who were barely wearing tank tops huddled with Wolf's Rain cosplayers to stay warm
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
