What got you into cosplay?
Final Fantasy! #8 specifically. I needed a Halloween costume, so I decided to be Irvine Kinneas from FF8. Then I figured out what cosplay was. And it's been a wonderful money pit since! =D
What was your first costume and why?
Irvine Kinneas from Final Fantasy 8! I have the same hair as him, so I just when with that and created a Halloween costume!
What is your favorite costume and why?
Dr. Franken Stein! Because it's the only one I've worn to a convention. And that convention was the best weekend of the entire year! So whenever I see my costume or think of Dr. Stein, it always makes me feel unbearably happy!
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Vincent Valentine from Final Fantasy 7 is my dream costume for sure. Others include:
Kefka from Final Fantasy 6 (Dissidia version)
Squall Leonhart from Final Fantasy 8
America from Hetalia
England from Hetalia
Russia from Hetalia
Prussia from Hetalia
Envy from Fullmetal Alchemist
Kadaj from Advent Children
Undertaker from Black Butler
Beyond Birthday from Death Note
Kaze from Final Fantasy Ulimited
and lots of others. The list changes almost on a daily basis. XD
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Getting to talk to the voice of Dr. Stein (Chuck Huber) while dresses as Dr. Stein! In Chuck's voice acting panel at the convention I went to, the first 12 people in line got to do an acting game with him. I was the 4th person, after the Powerpuff girls who got there a few minutes before I did. So I got to play the game "Donkey" with Chuck Huber! AND I WON! It was so cool!!! Then after, Chuck signed a few of my things and my life was complete. X3
Do you participate in masquerades?
I've only been to one. Well, I've only had the opportunity to go to one since I've only been to one convention! I went as Dr. Stein with Medusa. SO MUCH FUN!!!
What was your best masquerade experience?
I have no clue how to dance. So some guy (I think he was from the staff?) taught me how. It was a lot of fun! And at the end he got down on one knee and kissed my hand!
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
I have a chicken/chocobo rider costume that I have won numerous prizes with!
Tell us a little about yourself
I love reading, drawing, hiking, sleeping, sewing plushies, making costumes, and more! I love so much, we'd be here forever if I tried to list it all!

but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.
