What got you into cosplay?
My friends Armanda and Vanessa. Like most people, I have the "They dress up at these things?!" exp with cons, but I've loved costuming all my life.
What was your first costume and why?
Tifa, because it was available, I had the right hair, I knew people liked it, and I knew I could pull it off (and I like Tifa).
What is your favorite costume and why?
I enjoy all my costumes for different reasons. :]
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
For now, it's Miss Riddel from "Chrono Cross" and Cheza, from Wolf's Rain.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
It would be really hard to pick. But I do love seeing the faces of fans when I'm very nice to them as Allen Walker.
Do you participate in masquerades?
Yes! I've loved the stage from a young age. I wish I could perform more. <3
What was your best masquerade experience?
Oh, I think it's got to be that dancing walk-on to "Puttin' on the Ritz" (ala Taco) for Ciel from Kuroshitsuji. Ahh, Hat-Dancing, you just can't get better than that.
Performing "What Would You Sacrifice?" at Akon '07 was extremely fun, but all the red tape getting there was just bothersome.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Yes! Thank you for asking. I received "Best Tailoring and Fitting" for Ciel Phantomhive (light blue coat) at Anime Iowa 2009, as well as Best Journeyman Performance. In 2010 at the same con, I won Best Character Recreation for Allen Walker 3rd Arc.
I may try for more in the future, but for now I am content with what I've gotten.

I seem to do an odd amount of cackling given that other thing I've just said.
