What got you into cosplay?
Going to my first anime convention.
What was your first costume and why?
Dante from DMC4, since I was on a DMC high that year and I was able to procure the costume easily enough.
What is your favorite costume and why?
Originally, it was Fujimoto (from Ponyo), but I think that the 11th Doctor has surpassed that pretty handily. Just too much fun.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Two - a Necron Lord and Inquisitor Gregor Eisenhorn from Warhammer 40,000. Not exactly anime related, but you know what, they're awesome enough to override that.
Do you participate in masquerades?
Tell us a little about yourself
I'm currently a junior at University of the Arts in Philadelphia, studying a BFA in Photography. I'm hoping to get into food/advertising. My hobbies are Warhammer and Warmachine (tabletop wargames), video games, reading, and just generally being a geek.
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
Not too much! If you see me at a convention, feel free to come up and chat - I'm very friendly and always open for chats and photos!
