About Me / Q&A

What got you into cosplay?
I probably saw it first on deviantART though to be honest I can't remember. I know the first time I did an actual cosplay was for halloween because that's the one time of year it's acceptable (according to 'normal people') to be whatever character you want, and I had just recently fallen in love with KH and was starting to watch anime and k-pop.... it kinda came as a package deal for me.
What was your first costume and why?
Kairi for Halloween in 2009. To be honest even now I only made it halfway through KHI (I just don't have the video game skills) but I was immersed in the fanart and (yes) even a fanfic or two that used the characters from KH. So maybe my perception of them is a bit skewed, but I loved how simple Kairi's costume seemed and how cute she was.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Something elegant or fluffy... along the lines of Luka's Duchess of Venomania Dress or something from a Ghibli movie. The latter would be hard to pick though because there are just so many wonderful characters I would love to pay tribute to. <3
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Anime Expo by far... it was my first convention and I dove in head first :) It just felt so flattering to have a ton of people want my picture as Venus and it felt so welcoming to have people greet me or give me hugs as Winry. It's hard to explain it to someone who hasn't been to a con, but it was the most amazing feeling.
Do you participate in masquerades?
I haven't yet but I really want to once I have a costume I have made enough of and feel proud of. I have felt like that about my Magnet headphones and my Kairi Keyblade but I haven't made the outfits to go with so I'm waiting until I finish either that or a much bigger dream project.
