What got you into cosplay?
I saw other people do it. It looked so fun parading around as a character. I saw a bunch of skits and clips from cons and I thought it'd be just awesome sauce. I also was into anime since I started to remember things and I really wanted to dress up as them (Sailor Moon was my first anime and I loved it) So, when I heard about cosplay, I wanted to partake in the fun and start with the anime I liked at that time. After time, I actually got to it and found it very fun and exciting. I started my hobby of cosplaying on Halloween 2010 so I'm new to this.
What was your first costume and why?
My first cosplay was Belphegor from Katekyo Hitman REBORN! I cosplayed him because his outfit seemed really fun and easy. Plus, I liked wearing stripes and going around saying,"I'm ignorant because I'm a Prince!" I didn't have a wig though... I didn't have time to get it. (it was almost Halloween at the time and cosplays come in about 29 days.) And I still got recognized by someone.
What is your favorite costume and why?
So far, my favorite cosplay is my Fran cosplay! I loved walking around in it. But It smelled horrible- well, to other people, at least. Apparently, like gasoline.)And I didn't have a frog hat, either, but I had fun parading in that cosplay. I wore it all the days at my first convention, ALA 2011. It was really fun and I was the only Fran there! It made me feel really special.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
My dream cosplay is probably Uni. I really want to pull her off and I want to look as accurate as possible! Her cosplay is so beautiful. I can't help but want it. >//v//<
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
I think it'd have to be when I was in the Dealers' Hall at Anime Los Angeles and my friend, Cady, and I had our first meet. We hugged and I was so out of character. We had just met and we instantly became friends.
Do you participate in masquerades?
I've always wanted to! It seems so fun but really scary! I plan to be in one someday.
Tell us a little about yourself
My hobbies include drawing, singing, cosplaying, dancing and making friends! I love all of these things with all my heart. But I want to get better at them.
I'm in school, yes. I'm but a junior high student.
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
I'm just a young kid exploring the world and life of an otaku. I want to know all there is to know about these unique people.
Aside from my otaku life, I'm just a Jr. High student looking for my calling. I wish to find it now and work very hard at it.
