What got you into cosplay?
Watching anime and thinking 'Wow, that's a cool costume!' and later finding out that other people thought the same thing, and made those costumes real.
What was your first costume and why?
Amane Misa from Death Note, because she was my favourite character out of everyone in the few animes I'd seen.
What is your favorite costume and why?
My favourite cosplay so far is Super Sailor Moon from Sailor Moon. It's not completed yet, but I am so happy with the the way it turned out for it's debut. I love that cosplay and I hope to revamp it more and more!
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
My dream costume at this moment is Princess Garnet's wedding dress from Final Fantasy 9. Another would be Esther Blanchett from Trinity Blood.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
My most memorable experience would be at Anime Detour 2010 in Minnesota, when someone came to me and told me that my Sebastian and I (Grell) were the best Kuroshitsuji cosplayers they'd ever seen. It was a very genuine compliment!
Do you participate in masquerades?
I participated once, in a Soul Eater group at Anime-Spark 2011.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
