What got you into cosplay?
My childhood bffl, Kagura. She invited me to AX 2006 and the rest is history.
What was your first costume and why?
A closet cosplay because it was literally last minute I was going to a con.
What is your favorite costume and why?
Once it was Russia, because it was my first canon character cosplay. Now, it's Rose Quartz because I feel magical and I love interacting with the fans.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Being Russia, and then being Rose Quartz. I love seeing people's faces light up when they see me and they ask for a hug.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
I won a Hallway award for my Queen Elizabeth I dress.
