About Me / Q&A

What got you into cosplay?
My friends. They cosplay with me and I first got into it by seeing how much fun they had getting their pictures taken and making the costumes late into the night. It's a way to geek out and be someone else.
What was your first costume and why?
My first cosplay was Saki Hanajima. It wasn't very good, though. I had long dark hair and a black cape and decided to try it. My first good one was Mikuru Asahina in her bunny outfit, though even that one wasn't completely good(ripped down the back).
What is your favorite costume and why?
It's probably a tie between my Haruhi Suzumiya Bunny Girl and Beach Suki (AtLA). I love the Bunny Haruhi because it isn't something I'd normally do. Beach Suki tried my patience since I was trying to get it done mostly by hand at college. It was fun since we had a large group doing Avatar cosplays.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
I don't know about that. Possibly Kyoshi Warrior Suki, but nothing that I really want to do that I haven't already thought about.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Probably after the Avatar gathering at Anime Expo 2010. My extended group went and decided to see how long it would take us to get down the long hallway. We then went and sat in a quiet area and had our friend, who's a professional photographer, come and do our own little photoshoot.
Do you participate in masquerades?
No, I don't.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
None, and I don't really feel that I want to. For me, it's all about having fun and enjoying myself.
Tell us a little about yourself
I go to school at Ohio Wesleyan University, though my family lives in California. I write when I can and hope to self-publish in Summer 2011, probably shortly after Anime Expo.
