What got you into cosplay?
Anime Expo 2004; I went, I saw the amazing costumes, I immediately wanted to join in.
What was your first costume and why?
Made for me: Sumomo. I loved her personality, it was bouncy and great. One that I made: Songstress Yuna, my friend and I decided to go as Yuna/Lenne to a Halloween party.
What is your favorite costume and why?
Has to be A.B.A; I've been on this badass red-head kick lately and she was the way to break my cute and fluffy motiff. Not to mention that really, REALLY got my dad and I going on props.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Randgris from Ragnarok Online
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
My entire family cosplay. We did a masquerade skit at AniZona II with my dad as Link, mom as Zelda, brother as Skull Kid and me as Navi. Greatest.thing.evar.
Do you participate in masquerades?
I've done a couple so far ^^ I love them.
What was your best masquerade experience?
This past masquerade, I won an award for my key, Paracelsus. Getting to make fun of a keyblade on stage was pretty awesome. I've never, ever seen so many camera flashes in my life. As was stated; super model status =3
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Honorable Mention for Craftsmanship- Amazing Engineering and Best Prop Ever.
Tell us a little about yourself
I'm a full-time wine snob. Cosplay will forever remain my favorite hobby. Lately it's been my boyfriend and I frequenting the conventions with our Artist's booth; and I wouldn't trade it for anything- I meet so many interesting people there. I also write, paint minis, draw, and perform on my clarinet.
