What got you into cosplay?
Back in the summer of 2006, I attended a convention, not having expected to encounter dozens of talented cosplayers in the con area. After that day, I promised myself to put a cosplay costume together the following year. The promise held, and I've been making costumes ever since!
What was your first costume and why?
Kino Makoto in her high school uniform from the Stars season, as I needed something fairly simple to start off with. In addition, I didn't need to bother with purchasing a wig. XD
What is your favorite costume and why?
My favourite costume varies all the time. I usually find myself loving my latest costumes the most - I suppose that's because my skills keep on improving! At the moment, however, I think I love Leetah (ElfQuest) the most: not only because I'm happy with the way the costume turned out, but also because of so many feels attached to EQ!
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Currently, Leetah from ElfQuest (the first outfit that appeared in the comic) and Balsa from Seirei no Moribito. I hope to complete Leetah during 2014 and Balsa next year!
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Definitely getting to meet some pretty amazing and talented people, many of whom I'm now happy to call my friends! And, being called cute by Tohru Furuya. Priceless!

I love Sailor Moon! As if that wasn't obvious enough from the costume list... ^^;
