What got you into cosplay?
Watching Japanese anime. Plus the massive amount of love for certain characters and wanting to dress up to look like them.
What was your first costume and why?
It was Halloween, and my favorite show at the time was Pokemon. So I decided to be Ash Ketchum. I even had a Pikachu plushie on my hat. It didn't win the costume contest, but a lot of the kids knew who I was.
What is your favorite costume and why?
I like my Haseo Xth Form costume since it's very comfortable and detailed.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
I would love to be Ikaros from Sora no Otoshimono, CC or Zero from Code Geass, Laura from Infinite Stratos, and more.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Otakon 2007! I loved going and I had a lot of fun. I also met a lot of new people there, too. I think it was most significant since that's when I went to my first .hack photoshoot, and it was a huge crowd. The group went around the city and we had a lot of fun. Otakon 2010 was also really good, too.
Do you participate in masquerades?
No. I easily get stage fright and freak out.
What was your best masquerade experience?
Never Masq. before
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
No. I don't really care for awards. None at the moment. I think wearing the costume and having fun being that character is more important than winning something.
