What got you into cosplay?
I've always been into making costumes, and I enjoyed anime as well. When I found out about conventions and that people actually dressed as characters, it was a quick and easy progression from ren-faire costuming into cosplay.
What was your first costume and why?
Princess Serenity and Tuxedo Mask (my twin went as TM) for halloween. We had random costume items that sort of looked right and went with it.
What is your favorite costume and why?
Donna Noble from Doctor Who. It gives me an excuse to be my normal sarcastic self while in costume and have it be acceptable.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
In the middle of a random battle (for RBG) exchanging my Yuna staff for Ward's really tall spear and screaming "white magic sucks" which sent most of the group into convulsive laughter.
Do you participate in masquerades?
What was your best masquerade experience?
Tekkoshocon, 2008 walk-on. Its the masquerade where I won my first award.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Best Novice Craftsmanship - 2008 Tekkoshocon. For Jade World Sakura from Tsubasa Chronicles
2nd Place Journeyman - 2009 Setsucon for Kapelteta from Straight Jacket
2nd Place Journeyman 2010 Setsucon for Outo World Sakura from TRC
1st Place Advance 2014 Tekkoshocon for Kusuriuri from Mononoke
