What got you into cosplay?
Anime Boston 2010.
I was mesmerized by all the fantastic costumes so I started planning for the next year.
And as I think I've heard a lot of people say, my love for Halloween!
I've always loved dressing up for that, even in the most horrendous costumes. So when I discovered the concept of cosplay I was like getting to dress up outside of October? Let's do it!
What was your first costume and why?
It was a closet cosplay I threw together for Halloween sophomore year of hs. We were allowed to wear costumes to school & I'd developed a Death Note addiction so I did my best with my zero skills and last minute time limit XD
But I do really love Misa's character. And even if it's just a crappy closet cosplay, I love the excuse to wear the red lips and black liner
What is your favorite costume and why?
Currently it's my Angel Stocking!
Was a bit of a challenge to complete and still needs some work, but I'm happy with how it turned out!
Stocking is one of my favorite characters
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Dead Master from the 2012 Black Rock Shooter anime!
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
When I cosplayed as Dead Master at Anime Boston 2012. I was very proud of the costume, and it was the first time anyone stopped me for pictures, which was exciting
And also when I wore my Genkai cosplay this year. I made it mostly all myself, aside from buying the clothes that went underneath, and got stopped for pictures and had many people complimenting it!
It just made me so proud of myself for actually accomplishing the cosplay and having people aside from me like it XD
