What got you into cosplay?
I would read about anime cons in anime magazines and it looked like something that I would enjoy.
What was your first costume and why?
Fan-fic costumes aside, my first cosplay costume was Mr. Slave from South park because i knew people would get a laugh out of it
What is your favorite costume and why?
Probably my colonial marine costume because I spent a lot of time putting it all together. Both the costume itself and the props to go with it. Plus I didn't want to spend $500 on pre-made Colonial marine armor and wait nearly a year for it to come in the mail.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Yun or Yang from Street fighter III: Third strike (done), Lord Raptor from Darkstalkers, Jeice from Dragonball Z, Minatek or Bullzeye from Bio-FREAKS
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Probably the overall experience of cosplaying.
Do you participate in masquerades?
No, but I would like to
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
A $50 gift card to FYE, One of my costumes made the front page in the Massillon Independent, and another one of my costumes was a finalist In the Vampirefreaks costume contest twice
Tell us a little about yourself
I'm a high school graduate. I work as a custodian at a Special ed./Alternative school (which I was also a student there for a number of years. I was transfered there for issues at my previous school). In my off time, I like to play guitar, make AMVs, play Xbox, shoot and collect Airsoft guns, hang out with friends and try to keep up with all the social networking stuff I'm apart of (I have profiles on facebook, youtube and Vampirefreaks)
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
My favorite anime
Outlaw star, Blue submarine #6, Tenchi muyo, Evangelion, Sailor moon, Cowboy bebop, Zoids, Ikki tousen, Barefoot gen (the only anime that almost made me cry)
My favorite game(s)
If I play a game, it's to unlock achievements. At the moment, I'm working on Resident evil 5. But one favorite of mine would have to be COD- Modern warfare 2 because of the interaction over XBL. Plus I'm thinking about doing something that's military orientated in my future.
My favorite book(s)
Don't really read much
