What was your first costume and why?
Technically, Xellos from Slayers for Halloween back in high school, mostly from stuff from my closet, some cardboard, and tin foil. Thankfully, no pictures exist. :)
Seriously, Lightning from Final Fantasy XIII. Because it looked deceptively simple (ha!).
What is your favorite costume and why?
Currently, Haruhi from Ouran. Simple, but effective. Fond of Ciel, too, now that I've got better shoes and the wig's styled right.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
A steampunk version of Ciel Phantomhive (Kuroshitsuji), Lina Inverse (Slayers), or Sora (Oh! Edo Rocket).
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Getting chased/"threatened" by shinigami three different times at ACen 2011 as Ciel.
Do you participate in masquerades?
No. I'm slowly learning how to sew, so my husband does most of the work on my costumes for the time being. My main job right now is cutting and detailing. :) Once I can make one on my own, I might give it a go.
I am planning on possibly entering a closet/found object one soon, though.
