What got you into cosplay?
In 7th grade is when I first had a desire to dress up as my favorite characters, such as Sailor Moon, but I didn't do it until my freshman year of high school when I heard of cosplay from the anime club I was in. The idea of it was just fun sounding and tada! We all cosplayed on the last day of school and ever since, I've been cosplaying.
What was your first costume and why?
Rin from Naruto. She was simple, underdone, and one of my favorite characters as well. It was easy to do, though I was inaccurate on a few things, such as the color of thigh highs and shoes, but other than that, I loved what I did! It was a fun and unique experience for me!
What is your favorite costume and why?
As of right now, I'd have to say Sakura's Gunner Uniform from Tsubasa: Reservoir Chroincle OVA; Tokyo Revelations. It was my very first full on cosplay, wig and everything, and even though it was simple to finish and make, I simply adored it because it was underdone and it made Sakura look very awesome. I simply loved taking pictures in that cosplay as well! I think for a while, it will remain as one of my favorites!
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
I have a few dream costumes I'd love to complete, but I'd truly love to cosplay as Sailor Saturn from the Sailor Moon series. Sure, she's simple and widely well known, but ever since I was little, I've always wanted to dress up as her!
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
I'd have to say that my most memorable cosplay experience was at the Anime LA picnic in May, 2010!
I wanted to cry tears of joy since it was my first actual full time cosplaying and people knew who I was, well a few! It was so much fun and I enjoyed doing a mini photoshoot with my friend otaku_drea! Overall though, I think I'll have even more memorable moments with cosplay!
Do you participate in masquerades?
Sadly, I haven't participated in any masquerade yet, but I am determined as ever to get brave enough and enter one, whether it be by myself or even with a group of friends! I've seen some amazing masquerades and overall, I think doing just one or a few would be fun to do.
Tell us a little about yourself
I'm currently a student at Antelope Valley Community college, working towards my degree in Medical Assisting. I love my family and friends and they're always around when I need them. They're such great supporters and encourage me as well. I love to write stories, roleplay, and take pictures!
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
I'm funny, can be perverted, shy, try my very best at everything I do, open hearted, caring, and an overall good person! It's very hard to make me mad and sometimes, I think I'm too nice since I give people more than once chance, but that's just who I am and I've always been this way.
