What got you into cosplay?
I would have to say my childhood friend Kagura. She got into cosplay herself, and then one day she invited me to go with her to Anime Expo, and we did a closet-cosplay for myself. I don't know if it turned out well or not, I try not to remember too much.
What was your first costume and why?
My first costume was a closet-cosplay, throw-together... Which as I stated preiviously, I try not to remember too much. I know it was a lot of black and red with bells on it and other such... nonsense. My first official costume however, was an original pirate costume of my original character Amie Harlock.
What is your favorite costume and why?
My favorite costume at this time, would have to be Russia's from Axis Powers Hetalia, simply because it is the first canon costume I've done completely. I've done Roger Smith, but without a wig or having black hair, it's kind of hard to.... I wonder if I can genderbend him. Hmn.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
I know I do-- I have like fifteen. @_@;; Don't make me list them all out please.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
This past ALA, in 2011, when I was cosplaying Russia, I was kidnapped by a bunch of youngin's. Safe to say, I had fun. I also met the third most amazing person ever in the universe. 8D
Do you participate in masquerades?
Someday, I would really like to participate in a masquerade.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Nope. To do that, I would have to enter something.
Tell us a little about yourself
I am currently a sophomore in college, working on my AA before I transfer to SFSU where I will work towards a masters in Creative Writing; I ultimately plan to get a PH.D and a double major, which I have yet to decide on. Although History or Cultural Anthropology are looking good as candidates, that or a Literature major. In my life, I've done quite a bit of theater, make up art and photography, the latter of which is a favorite hobby of mine. Another hobby I frequently like to partake in is Literate to Advance Literate Role Play. I have never played D&D, though some day I would like to try; I would also like to a find a good LARP group and give that a try as well.
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
I love animals, am conversational in German and I am currently working on learning Russian (along side of German) and Korean. Oh-- and I am not a nautral redhead or have naturally curly hair. I just like those both so much that I have it done. :/ Don't judge. It makes me feel better about myself.
