What got you into cosplay?
The fact that I was going to AnimeNorth. I researched the AnimeNorth website, saw all the fun stuff otakus were doing, like dressing up and such, and I wanted to join in on the fun! Oh, and because I heard Kirby Morrow went to conventions and I wanted to meet him! Sadly, I still haven't, though...
What was your first costume and why?
My first costume was Yuna from Final Fantasy X. The reason I chose her is because it looked like something that could be made by me, so I went for it.
What is your favorite costume and why?
I loooooove my Re-L costume! It turned out really, really well first try. I'm so proud of it but I still touch it up here and there just 'cause...^^
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Of course I do! But I have a LOT of dream costumes I'd love to make/have. Let's just say if I had the money and time, I would own quite a few "dream costumes". Examples: Sesshomaru from InuYasha, Helena from DOA, Albel from Star Ocean 3...;)
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Hee, hee, getting my picture taken! I'm such a picture whore d(^^)b
Do you participate in masquerades?
I've participated in one masquerade and one skit competition so far^^
What was your best masquerade experience?
Since I've only been in one, I'll talk about that:P It was fun to get out on stage and perform but the wait to even GET on stage was very tiresome! The time I went, there was a lockdown because a kid had gotten lost. Anyways, my performance can be found here...hee, hee: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-stHlETSOpM&search=anime%20north%202006
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Yep, well, for my masquerade performance. Does that count? I won an award for Best in Show, I think. The judges dubbed my preformace "Walk like an Egyptain".
