What got you into cosplay?
Oh I don't know. I guess it really fascinates me and it gives me something to do and feel great about. Knowing that I was able to make something and display it is rewarding by itself but just the feeling and the excitement of the pre-planning to actually making a costume or accessories is amazing.
What was your first costume and why?
My first costume was Nuriko from Fushigi Yugi because he is piratically my ultimate favourite character ever and I love him to death.
However, I guess if you want to go REALLY far back. . . when I was little I was the Pink Power Ranger for Halloween once - I'm not exactly sure if that counts, but it should since technically it is cosplaying XD
What is your favorite costume and why?
My favourite costume is Princess Garnet til Alexandros XVII. Not only is it my favourite because of how beautiful it came out, it is because I put so much time into it and am very proud of my costume. I also won Best Craftsmanship Novice division as well.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
All of Nuriko's outfits from Fushigi Yuugi.
KOS-MOS from Xenosaga
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Probably when I cosplayed as Princess Garnet - I got so many compliments, it was funny how people "knew" who I was but couldn't remember the characters name. One person asked "Would you prefer to be called Princess Sarah?" and I didn't mind XDD I also won Best Craftsmanship for Novice with this costume as well.
Do you participate in masquerades?
What was your best masquerade experience?
I'd have to say the first and only time I've been in a masquerade which was at AnimeNEXT 2009. My friend and I did the Death Note "Popular" Skit [which can be seen in High Quality here - http://www.acparadise.com/acp/vid/5276/h ~ you must sign up though] and we won a Judges Award!!!
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Yes. Best Craftsmanship Novice Division for my Garnet costume.
Tell us a little about yourself
Aside from cosplaying, I love to play video games, photography, draw, watch TV/movies and sing. I'm in a special program for film because I wish to go into that field when I am older. If that path doesn't end up working, my backup is definitely photography which I have been studying since September.
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
I love to sing ~ <3
