What got you into cosplay?
I attended my first convention, Anime Weekend Atlanta, in junior high. When I saw the wonderful costumes all around me, I just knew I had to get in on the action!
What was your first costume and why?
Kanzaki Hitomi from Vision of Escaflowne. The show holds a special place in my heart, and I always found Hitomi to be a relatable character.
What is your favorite costume and why?
Daria Morgendorffer. People used to call me Daria in high school due to my general attitude, so I suppose I was destined to cosplay her. I got a lot of compliments on the costume at Dragon*Con 2009 as well.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
the doll from the Presence sequence in Robot Carnival
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Meeting Malcolm McDowell while wearing my Alex costume- he loved it!
