What got you into cosplay?
The love for the idea of dressing up as my favorite character and lightly roleplaying them at conventions.
What was your first costume and why?
Vash the Stampede from Trigun. He is one of the most lovable characters and one of the most similar in personality to my own. He cares for others like me, cries like me, has physical scars like me, and he's a hot bishie. Lol. I loved his coat too so I decided, he'd be my first.
What is your favorite costume and why?
With each year my life of costumes grows little by little, however I always have fun as Vash the Stampede and Joker simply because they're both very loved and recognizable characters, but I've also had fun cosplaying as Dante from Devil May Cry 4, Wesker from Resident Evil, and I look very forward to cosplaying Grimmjow from Bleach.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
One day when I have lost the weight, and got abs, I dream of cosplaying Grimmjow Jaegerjaquze in his Espada outfit.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Cosplaying Joker at Sac Anime back in 2008. With the death of Heath Ledger, the response I got to my costume was immense. It felt like I was bringing Ledger back alive for his fans so it felt like I was giving everyone a gift. It sounds corny, but it was very uplifting to see everyone smile and have a good time, especially when I did my stage performances on Joker's scar stories.
Do you participate in masquerades?
What was your best masquerade experience?
During SacAnime in Aug.2008 when I cosplayed TDK Joker for the first time. The response I got from the con attendee's goes without words. They loved it! It was the best experience I've had for a costume.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
At first I wasn't getting anything. But overtime as my skills in costume modification progressed and my skits became a bit more sophisticated, I started winning awards. :)
Tell us a little about yourself
For a career, I'm a graphic designer with an associates degree, but for hobbies its mainly gaming, cosplay, anime conventions, and hanging with friends. But one day I hope to get married.
