What got you into cosplay?
My cousin playing Kingdom hearts 2 in 2007, I was hooked on that game since and then they introduced me to Youtube where I saw people dressed as the characters of Kingdom hearts and i really wanted to do it.
What was your first costume and why?
My first was Kairi from Kingdom hearts 2.
I was new to the cosplay scene so I went as her because she was the only character I liked at the time that was female, I didnt even think about cosplaying anyone male at this point.
What is your favorite costume and why?
So far...thats tough...I guess My Hinata cosplay from Naruto Shippuden.
It was Bought for me as a christmas present by my wonderful boyfriend the first christmas we spent together.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
I guess that would really be Cornelia from Code Geass.
At the moment I really admire that character so I would really like to play her, but I want to make it myself so i can get every detail of it correct.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Oh that would be in 2009 where I borrowed a friends Naruto cosplay and me and a Kakashi cosplayer got up infront of a whole crowd of people in a photoshoot and Kakashi asked me to marry her as a joke. After that all I heard was screaming, lost my balance hugging the Kakashi and fell back when out of no where I get crushed at the bottom of a massive dog pile!
Lol wont be forgetting that exsperiance any time soon!
Do you participate in masquerades?
I did once, again 2009, and I have competed in smaller cosplay competions at my local ForbiddenPlanet.
2009 I was in my friends Naruto costume and we went in the masqurade as Naruto, Temari and Gaara, we looked like right idiots dancing on stage, but it was alot of fun.
And at the 2 competions i've been in at ForbiddenPlanet I have been 1 of 3 winners in both of them.
What was your best masquerade experience?
Errr.....dont really have one to be honest, but if i had to say, winning the cosplay competions as Bellatrix Lestrange was really funny XD
Me shouting "I'll kill you all you fithly half bloods"
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
No not really, Prizes at Manga night but thats it.
Tell us a little about yourself
Well I'm a student about to start a Production Art course in Costume hair and make-up at Leeds City college.
I have a Part time job working in "The Works" its a discount book store (gets confusing sometimes) I really like working there and my boss is so nice, if it wasnt for that job i couldn't cosplay at all....
I have a lot of different interests, like Horse riding, drawing, reading, sewing, collecting Manga, hanging with my friends etc
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
I am apart of a cosplay group that meets up every month called LCG (Leeds cosplay group)
It can be a bit of a pain at times, but hey what am I meant to do about it?
To be honest its because of that group I met my boyfriend as well as some of my closest friends.
The Leader of LCG is going to be in my class at the new college i will be studying at.
Rachel is gonna be sorry she ever told me about the course. HE HE HE
