What got you into cosplay?
It's like Halloween, only not my birthday.
Do you participate in masquerades?
4 times so far, more in the future.
What was your best masquerade experience?
Each has been *special* in its own way.
Mikomicon 2007: It was last minute but I put in a lot of effort. And I danced onstage like an idiot but it turned out to be a good thing.
AX 2008: I can haz crew and build a giant boat, but my arm failed to be stretchy enough. But we rocked the Nokia theater stage as best as possible. Mikomicon 2008: more dancing, more last minute :P Fanime 2009: We took the show on the road and it actually came together, despite lack of food/sleep/booze/practice.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Mikomicon 2007 - Best in Show
Anime Expo 2008 - Third Place
Mikomicon 2008 - Honorable Mention, Performance
Fanime 2009 - Honorable Mention, Group Performance
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
I like to cosplay obscure characters but get little recognition. Why do I like the characters that only appear for a couple episodes??
That or the extremely recognizeable characters with alternate costumes.
My favorite anime
At the moment: One Piece, Eyeshield 21, Cromartie High School, Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei, Samurai Champloo, Genshiken
