What got you into cosplay?
I really enjoy cosplaying. I feel that putting yourself into a character can be an adventure. You can be a whole different person, but yourself at the same time. You can feel the magic from where your character is from, whether it's a video game or a television show. Cosplaying can guarantee you new friends! It's a great experience to go to all these cons and bring together everyone who loves what you love.
What was your first costume and why?
My first costume was Ayame from Inuyasha series. How embarrassing! If only I had photo's. Me and my friend, Charlotte, always got together every friday night to watch the series. It was really fun. We were always into "putting ourselves" into that character. I often pretended to be Kilala, while my friend was Shippou. Since I was a nub, and didn't know how to make a fur suit, I thought Ayame would be easy! I did it very basic. I got a lot of photo's that year, but I thought it was embarrassing. Now I'm excited to get photo's taken! I have really opened up.
What is your favorite costume and why?
My favourite costume has got to be something thats dark and mythical, or cute and fluffy. Two complete opposites.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
A dream costume I would like to make would be the Forest spirit from Princess Mononoke, or a HUGE totoro suit.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
It was a long time ago, Im not too sure what the character was. It was a white wolf at Anime North 2007. She was too cute, and cosplayed perfectly. She did hilarious poses in photo's. Very inspiring

What was your best masquerade experience?
My best masquerade experience was getting ready before anime north 2010's masquerade contest. I was in Den #3, along with wolf link who is my best friend. We were so nervous, our den mama had to teach us to BREEEEEEEEATHE. It was too funny.
