What got you into cosplay?
I got really into Yugioh in February 2011, and I joined a bunch of communites on tumblr ans such. Then I started finding out that people dressed up as characters, wait what?! I just had to try it and I've been hooked ever since! :D
What was your first costume and why?
Atem from Yugioh. I think I wanted to do someone recognizable (and what isn't more recognizable than that hair), but also not the standard. So I went for his Egyptian version :D
(also I did not want to buy a duel disk.. still don't! xD)
What is your favorite costume and why?
Ohhh hard one... Possibly my Edward(a) Elric one, because I still wear that dress casually and feel like a boss :D I really like my Fem!Kakashi one as well!
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Somone from Black Butler. And I would sew all the clothes myself >:D soo... holding off on that until I get better xD as of now, it's the Insane Black Rock Shooter I'm working on for AN'13!
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Ahhhh, definitely the FMA photoshoot at AN'12!! The friday shoot was awesome, but the Sunday one was just fantastic! So many cosplayers and photographers, it was just amazing meeting everyone. Best memory from the entire con :D
Do you participate in masquerades?
I like to try, but only at smaller ones. I did GoDaikocon, Con-G, and I'm planning on entering ConBravo'13. I wouldn't even dream of entering something bigger, like AN just yet!
What was your best masquerade experience?
Err.. I've only been in two so far OTL But the green room at Con-G was awesome, my den was basically last to go, so we had a nice 3 hour chat with each other :D
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
...does the "Gay Bacon Strips" award from a cosplay picnic count? That's legit what the certificate says. It's apparently awarded to the most flamboyant person. I went as Jean Havoc from FMA if that matters xD
Tell us a little about yourself
Ahh, Just finished grade twelve, but I'm a few credits short so I have to go back for a victory lap. Oh well. I don't have a job, but wish I did.. Cosplaying is an expensive hobby man D: Next year I'll be president of the Anime Club, so I'm quite excited about that :D Ahh, I also run a Yuki Sohma RP blog over on tumblr ^^
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
I may not be the best cosplayer ever, but I sure as heck have fun with what I do :D And that's the entire point, yes?
