What got you into cosplay?
All of the beautiful clothing that I realized suddenly I could make. That and Silent_Hill (Annie) she was a big part of it; She was actually one of the first cosplayers I actually saw who was really amazing.
What was your first costume and why?
A witch when I was just a weeee little thing. I wanted to be like Dori the good witch from a book I'd read so I wore my witch costume everywhere.
My first normal cosplay though was Steve Burnside from Resident Evil Code: Veronica.
What is your favorite costume and why?
My greatest two costumes thus far would have to be Elphaba, and Maggie Murdoch. I hope to have some more awesome things soon though!
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Big Sister from Bioshock, Bellatrix LeStrange, and it changes often.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
AnneCon 04, 05, etc. not really a con, but a get together of the Anne and I to take pictures for a week. All three so far have been very fun. My best actual Con though has been Katsucon cause it was all hanging out with Annie even though I was SO sleepy.
Do you participate in masquerades?
What was your best masquerade experience?
Winning best skit at Dragon*Con! Dave Tango (from Ghost Hunters) was one of the judges and he asked to get a picture with US afterwards!!

Tell us a little about yourself
I am a student at VCU for costume design, which sadly is eating up all the time I would otherwise use for cosplay stuff. Also I am now addicted to Beans on Toast. It is the best food EVER.
