What got you into cosplay?
My love for the TV show Firefly and my friend Reannaremick who got me to join the Peach State Cosplay Society (PSCS).
What was your first costume and why?
Browncoat Soldier. I'm a huge Firefly Fan, but I wanted to do something wholly unique. So I decided to go as "Browncoat" and began making the hodgepodge uniform and buying the gear necessary for it.
What is your favorite costume and why?
Current Fav: Roland (Borderlands 2 variant). My first time working with pepakura and armor making.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
ORC Armor from Appleseed (Manga), Red Trooper from 'The Red Star', Crossing Point Scout (Abhorsen Trilogy)
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
DragonCon 2012. Myself and my significant other were cosplaying from the Disney short "Paperman".
We were flagged down by animator Brian Kesinger who worked on Paperman (and a lot of other Disney films), so that he could get a picture of us and tweet it to Paperman's director.
Do you participate in masquerades?
Not regularly. Starfury: Serenity "Fancy Dress Competition" (UK), Atl. Kunicon's Cosplay contest, East Meets South 2005 cosplay contest, and MTAC 2007's.
What was your best masquerade experience?
Starfury: Serenity "Fancy Dress Competition". All the cosplayers had to walk a circuit around the main hall as well as pass by the table of guest judges: Nathan Fillion (Mal), Morena Baccarin (Inara), Jewel Staite (Kaylee), Ron Glass (Book), Mark Shepard (Badger), Summer Glau (River), Chris Buchanan (Executive producer), Alan Tuydk (Wash).
I stopped in front of the judges table in my Browncoat Soldier uniform and snapped off a salute only to have Nathan Fillion jump up and salute me back to the amusement of the crowd. I had a grin from ear to ear returning backstage.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Best Props - Group: MTAC 2007
