What got you into cosplay?
I think it was a combination of a lot of things. I've loved pop culture for a long time and I definately partake in all things comic book/video game/anime/manga. Art is my passion and making costumes was the natural road for me to go down when it came to going to conventions. In fact, I cosplayed to my first convention and have never looked back!
What was your first costume and why?
My first official cosplay was Kairi from KHII. To be honest, it's what my friends wanted to do and I thought it looked like fun and I do love that character, so I thought why not.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
OH gosh yes! I'm in the process of making it right now: Bayonetta.
Also, a Granado Espada Warlock, those costumes are GORGEOUS!
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
I cosplayed as Appa to SDCC 2010, and Adam Hughes' assistant hauled it across the dealers room to tell me I had to go talk to Adam! So, I did and he was SO excited about my costume, he took a picture of my on his phone and sent it to all of his friends. Oh my gosh, it was so amazing! And I still get breathless just talking about it.
Do you participate in masquerades?
I've done one and it was so scary! I dont' think I'll do masquerade again unless I have the perfect costume to present and if it meets the standard of everyone else's cosplay.
