What got you into cosplay?
Hearing my friends talk about it, and seeing pictures for so long.
What was your first costume and why?
Duo Maxwell, Gundam Wing. He's the first character I really related to, and I (supposedly) look like him anyway. Plus I had the hair for it.
What is your favorite costume and why?
Duo Maxwell. He remains the one I can relate to the most, and it's the one I'm most associated with.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Several. The two that top my "dream" list (I really want to do them, but won't be able to for a looong time) are Utena (from Revolutionary Girl Utena) and Lulu (from Final Fantasy X).
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
There's too many.
Getting my pajama pants stolen by fangirls at Janicon 2007 and Maboroshi getting it all on camera.
Being recognized (and hugged) by Brad Swaile when I was dressed as human-Kurt (X-Men Evolution).
Do you participate in masquerades?
Still not really sure what this refers to, exactly.
What was your best masquerade experience?
Dressed as a "formal" Duo, (fedora and all) I was slipping through the crowd when a prom-dress-clad girl fell back into me. Without even thinking, I caught her in my arms before she fell, one hand behind her back and one arm over her waist. I swung her up onto her feet and slipped off into the crowd again as her friends were fangirling. XD
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Not really any worth counting.
Tell us a little about yourself
I'm working on a story that I some day hope to get published. I also hope to own my own bookstore one day.
I'm currently working at Home Depot, living with my girlfriend and a high-school friend (fellow cosplayers). I like photography, and making AMVs...
Right now... that's all I've got.
My favorite anime
Fullmetal Alchemist, Samurai Seven, Sword of the Stranger, Cowboy Bebop, Host Club, Howl's Moving Castle...
just to name a few. They're constantly changing as I discover new ones.
My favorite game(s)
FF 10, Kingdom Hearts (1&2), DDR and Guitar Hero
My favorite book(s)
Neverending Story by Michael Ende, all-time favourite. The movie sucks. x.x
Other than that, I have dozens of favourites. I was raised on books.
As for manga, I read more manga than I watch anime, so if that's a clue...
Cain Saga, Angel Sanctuary, Death Note, Fruits Basket, Revolutionary Girl Utena, Rurouni Kenshin...
My favorite character(s)
Duo Maxwell obviously. XD
My favorite movies(s)
Oh, I love movies too, this changes every month or so. I like mostly fantasy and adventure, but I also enjoy horror/thrillers, some sci-fi, almost anything Disney, and feel-good inspirational movies.
My favorite actors/actresses
Johnny Depp, Morgan Freeman (God! XD), Angelina Jolie, Halle Berry...
more recently, Shia LaBeouf and Steven Strait.
