What got you into cosplay?
My Friends at the time
What was your first costume and why?
Grell from Kuroshitsuji, because my friends were doing a Kuroshitsuji group and I was the only one who could do the Grell faces perfectly, so they asked me.
What is your favorite costume and why?
I love Lucille from Grand Guignol Orchestra, but I also love Charden Flamberg since that is always so well recieved. Plus, how often does one get to run around in a 15" tophat?
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Since I already succeeded in my major dream cosplay, Isaak Fernand Von Kampfer from Trinity Blood, my current dream cosplay are:
Rolan Flamberge from Rolan the Forgotten King, Rufus Barma from Pandora Hearts, Hugue De Watteau from Trinity Blood, Faust VIII's shaman fight outfit from the Shaman King Manga, and Zoisite from Sailor Moon.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Anime USA 2011. I was cosplaying as Charden Flamberg from Black Cat and Monical Rial, who does the English voice of Kyoko Kirasaki (Charden's Partner) in Black Cat was guest. I wore my Charden cosplay becuase there was no way I was missing an opportunity to meet Charden's partner while dressed as him. Anyway, I was in line to meet her and I suddenly got really nervous and insecure about my costume, afraid she wouldn't recognize my outfit, but she was still signing the DVD for the person in front of me and she looked up, waved and exclaimed "Hi Charden!!" and proceeded to tell me how amazing I looked and how much she loved my costume and that she really appreciated me wearing it just to meet her. Then we both agreed Charden is very good looking without his sunglasses and I impressed her by having the scene in the anime where he first removes said glasses committed to memory. Then she gave me a big hug and her best Kyoko pose for a picture and told me, and I quote, "I'm just so tickled, I've never seen a Charden before!" She made my day and I told her that.
Do you participate in masquerades?
Not Yet, but someday.
What was your best masquerade experience?
I've never actually performed a skit, but my best experience from viewing a masquerade had to be when the MC asked "How's everyone doing tonight?" and on a whim I yelled "I WANT A PINEAPPLE!" and the MC heard me and said "You want what?" and the room got all quiet and I swear a couple Mukuro cosplayers started staring at me when my friend yelled back "You heard the girl! She wants a pineapple!"" and he said "Well good luck with that!"
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Tell us a little about yourself
I work at a comic shop part time, I have a dog named Sunshine, and I like to cosplay in public. My Friends and Family are my life and when I'm not cosplaying, I'm working on new costumes/props or writing my Novels.
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
I'm a Spazz. :3
