What got you into cosplay?
My older sister Samantha suggested we cosplay for my first convention, she planned on doing Alucard from Hellsing while I was going to do Jill Valentine from Resident Evil 5. Sam ended up dropping her costume but I carried on mine, and from then I was hooked!!
What was your first costume and why?
My first costume was Jill Valentine in her BSAA variant (which I plan on redoing, having a photoshoot and uploading pictures!) and despite my inexperience in costume making, I recieved nothing but compliments and was so proud!
What is your favorite costume and why?
I have to say, Jill is my first and my favorite. I love her. She's such a kick ass and the fact she and I look similar make me happy.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
My dream costume is probably Ruliya from Aqua Knight in full armor and her bathing suit. And Samus Aran... Zero suit + Varia Suit.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
My most memorable cosplay experience would probably be a tie between dancing at the formal ball with Chris Redfield while dressed as Jill Valentine and standing in the hotel center playing piano in the same costume, and having so many people come and listen and talk to me after.
Do you participate in masquerades?
I haven't yet, but I would really like to!
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
I won Hallway Cosplay award at Kumoricon 2010... don't think that counts...
