What got you into cosplay?
Mostly the same as everyone else. I liked looking at costumes on TV & games and thinking "Wow..if I could do that." But what really got me into it was conventions. The thought of walking around as my favorite character and taking pictures baffled me. I had to do it!
What was your first costume and why?
Kuroneko, I love that kitty! But my costume stunk because all it was, was I panted whiskers on my face, and whore a black top, skirt, boots, and hose. But..I did wear an awesome kitty hat. ....Gosh that was such a bad costume. I'm glad no photos of it lie around XD
What is your favorite costume and why?
Lately, my favorite costume list has been going up. It's so hard to pick between the chillin's now! I do enjoy my Rhyme, Yuffie, and Olette...oh wait Lu! Bright and colorful characters like that I enjoy!
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Well, I would say..but since I'm going to make it in the future and I want it to be a secret, I won't say ^^
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
I really have two..Winning Best Skit at Onicon 3 was one. The skit we performed I had written and it was originally a fan fic..and it was also my first award. My second is winning best overall at Ikkicon. Third would be this past Ikkicon and Effervescence and I trying to do a serious skit. I just love doing skits and hanging out with friends! Those are the best memories a gal can have!
Do you participate in masquerades?
Indeed I do! It's fun to perform skits and meeting other cosplayers (but best of all is cheering for your friend to WIN!)
What was your best masquerade experience?
Look under most memorable :). I think winning awards and/or your friends winning is great. I love the feeling when they call someone's name and you're like "OMG I KNOW THEM. THEY WON. YAY!"

Tell us a little about yourself
I'm in my first year at college and so I still live with my family. My house is a zoo (4 dogs, 2 cats, 1 brother). I adore theatre and was in two local companies. I've gotten roles like Piglet in Winnie the Pooh, the Wardrobe in Beauty and the Beast, and M'lynn in Steel Magnolias. I love crazy random outfits and I LOVE RAINBOWS! I've worked EVERYWHERE from photography, costume shops, to retail. I love meeting other people also! My other hobbies include music, blogging, the internet in general, anime, video games, drama, writing, and reading.
My life goals are: To be a beautiful trap, be a rock in a play, and to be that old lady that has 50 cats in her house.
No. I'm serious.
