What got you into cosplay?
I've always had a lot of love for fantasy and adventure. There's something incredibly exciting about stepping into a very different outfit or walking around with elf ears for a few hours. It's very easy to imagine you're a different person and it's so cool when you find people you can share the experience with!
What was your first costume and why?
My first costume was Fina from Skies of Arcadia. The friend I was going to the convention with decided go as someone else from Skies and we wanted to be in theme. I happened to look a bit like Fina, so it was a pretty decent match, even though she wasn't my favourite character.
What is your favorite costume and why?
This is probably my Female Protagonist costume from Persona 3 Portable. I'm just so happy with how it turned out, and I did all of it 100% by myself and made a lot of great decisions. It was a quality costume that I'll definitely wear again!
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
I used to want to make a costume of Terra Branford from Final Fantasy VI. I don't really have a dream costume anymore... I just want to make quality cosplays. :D
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Nothing much, really. I guess it was being recognized as Fina for the first time. The whole, "OMG! You're from Skies of Arcadia! COOL!" just makes you beam with pride.
Do you participate in masquerades?
No, I'm too nervous. ._.;; I always say I'm going to, but I chicken out at the last minute after seeing people who look GORGEOUS. ^^;
Tell us a little about yourself
I'm mostly an average person. I like to write, read, and play video games. I have a full-time job as an assitant manager of a video game store and I'm still struggling to find my place in the world.
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
Not really. :P
My favorite anime
It's hard to say, as I don't watch a lot of it anymore. I still like magical girl stuff like Cardcaptor Sakura and Sailor Moon.
