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?
Every time I wear a new costume I call it my favorite.
Aside from my first two closet cosplays, all of my costumes:
Have been my favorites...
Though I guess if I HAD to pick one it would be Genkai because she is one of my favorite characters from my most loved anime, Yu Yu Hakusho!
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
I have so many
But I'd really love to do Rapunzel from Tangled!
And I someday hope to have accomplish making all of my favorites from Yu Yu Hakusho :3
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
Tell us a little about yourself
19, freshman in college
I love anime, manga, cosplay, conventions, writing, reading, and video games and sweets mmmm.
I'm going to school for baking & pastry arts ^_^
So I hope to work somewhere where I can make cakes and breads or open my own little bakery one day!
I'd love to meet some new people who can tolerate my weirdness and anime obsession. Because as my friend pointed out I talk about anime waaay too much.
