What got you into cosplay?
I've always been into anime, and my sister had always wanted to go to Otakon. So, one year we decided to meet up with two online friends and thought the perfect place would be Otakon! We got together some last minute cosplays (haha) and went! After seeing so many amazing cosplayers there, I really wanted to try and make some awesome ones myself.
What was your first costume and why?
My first cosplay was at Otakon 2010 and it was a Risa Koizumi cosplay from the anime Lovely Complex. I chose it because I really didn't know much about cosplaying and thought you had to pick a character pretty much exactly like you haha. She was super tall and so am I, so I thought it would fit! Hahaha.
What is your favorite costume and why?
My favorite costume is, right now, Matryoshka Luka. It was my 3rd cosplay and I really tried to put a lot of effort into it, and it was my first time crafting some of the props in it. It was super hot in it and pretty uncomfortable, but fun nonetheless and everyone seemed to love it!
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Hmm, I don't really have a dream cosplay, but I'd really love to make something much more complex in the future. I hope to be able to craft more of my cosplay each time I make one.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
My most memorable cosplay experience was at Otakon 2011 while we were walking back to the hotel from the Masquerade. I was dressed in my Matryoshka Luka cosplay and suddenly someone comes beside me blasting Matryoshka, so of course we all started bobbing up and down and dancing xD haha
