What got you into cosplay?
I have always liked dressing up as characters from TV, movies, and musicals. I have been Eponine from "Les Miserables", one of the "Cats", as well as a hobbit.
What was your first costume and why?
My first anime cosplay was Yayoi Matsunaga from "Nightwalker". The costume looked easy enough for a beginner, and she was my favorite character from the series.
What is your favorite costume and why?
My original character Furrie Feline. She was in Anime NebrasKon's fanfilm parody Awesome Rangers.
I stopped traffic in that outfit, literally. XD So much fun.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Kegalesia from Engine Sentai Go-Onger; Marilyn Nebraska from Trigun
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
My first convention -- Anime NebrasKon 2004. I got so many compliments from my Yayoi costume, it was unbelievable.
Do you participate in masquerades?
Yes, but I haven't been able to for a while (lack of good solo skits...)
What was your best masquerade experience?
Winning Best Musical Skit at Anime NebrasKon 2005 -- I sang "I'm Not That Girl" from "Wicked" in my Ayame outfit (InuYasha).
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Yayoi Matsunaga (NightWalker) -- Anime NebrasKon 2004 -- 2nd Place Best Overall Costume
Tell us a little about yourself
I'm a theater major with an emphasis in costuming and directing.
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
I know LOTR Elvish extremely well. I taught myself Quenya and Sindarin in the summer of 2003.
I prefer cosplaying characters that aren't done very often.
