What got you into cosplay?
I decided that I wanted to dress up for one day at my first convention, which was Anime North 2011. I was very inspired looking at pictures from previous years and seeing the effort and fun people had in costume.
What was your first costume and why?
My very first attempt at cosplay was when I was in grade 7 and wanted to do something different for the school Halloween dance. I had a half completed costume of Cornet Espoir from Rhapsody: A Musical Adventure. I did this character because of her love of music (which I can relate too) and it was a fun game to play. The costume was horrible though, so I got rid of it and didn't get back into it until last year.
What is your favorite costume and why?
I only have three at the moment and they are not 100% done, so I can't say xD
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Angewomon from Digimon!
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
My very first masquerade at Emiko's Mini Convention 2012! Please read below! xD
Do you participate in masquerades?
I've only participated in one at this point. I was slightly peer pressured and curious to try one out.
What was your best masquerade experience?
EMC4! (Emiko's Mini Convention 2012) I had so much fun trying it out for the first time in my cosplay career! I met many new friends, and got lots a tips and pointers from the more experienced cosplayers there. It was magical *w*
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Stocking Anarchy; School Uniform Version - Best Use of Legwear >///<
