What got you into cosplay?
Pretty costumes; the community (there's just this... "cosplay vibe"); getting more out of cons; free Pocky, apparently.
What was your first costume and why?
My first costume will be Tooru, from A-Channel (debuting at Aki Con '11). I decided on her because her outfit is fairly simple and I like her character.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
I have dozens. Right now, I'm excited for cosplaying as Joshua (The World Ends With You), genderbent Auron (Final Fantasy X), and genderbent Yuna (also FFX).
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
The "not having a memorable cosplay experience". :l
Do you participate in masquerades?
Would if I could.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
I *hope* I will, at some point...
Tell us a little about yourself
I'm just starting out my sophomore year (quite pleasantly, I must say), and I'm turning sixteen on September 19th! I have one father and two mothers (all of them are involved in a big cuddly polyamorous triad), and then a sister and brother. I like to read, write, draw, sing, act/roleplay, compose music, and come up with ideas for various things (like anime and video games). I am currently attempting to learn Japanese and Chinese.
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
I am awesome. And female. I'm really looking forward to Aki Con and GeekGirlCon, and am currently in the process of working on my Tooru cosplay for both of those events. I also really want a cosplay girlfriend. xD I enjoy BL, GL, AND het, and I really hate Joshyme for some reason. IT JUST MAKES NO SENSE.
