What got you into cosplay?
I finally gave in to my geeky friends and watched an anime. After that I always thought it would be fun to cosplay even if it was just on Halloween.
What was your first costume and why?
Grell Sutcliff; I love that gay boy. It was thrown together rather quickly and included a (cheap) wig that I sharpie dyed myself. It was too short to begin with (He was...uh...growing it out) and ended up pink. Ah, well. I tried.
What is your favorite costume and why?
My weeping angel, so much fun to mess with people.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Well, I wore my Grell cosplay to my ghetto community college on Halloween and there was this guy who apparently recognized the character. Anyway, he kept popping up around me all day and would give me this deer-in-the-headlights look every time. Finally in my best whiny voice I asked him what he wanted. It sort of went like this:
Me: Uuuuuh, what you want?
Guy: Death god?
Me: Grell-aaaah Sut-ah-cliff.
Guy: You're a very ugly Shinigami.
I ended up chasing him down the hall shouting at him not to insult a lady and snipping my little red scissors at him. The look on my Biology teacher's face when we sprinted past her? Priceless.
Do you participate in masquerades?
Nah, never been to a con. My car's not good on long trips so it's unlikely I'll ever get to one in the foreseeable future.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Psh, no. I just do this stuff for the hell of it.
Tell us a little about yourself
I'm in college right now and am the model of "broke college kid" . All of my sewing is done on a treadle sewing machine which I've gotten quite good at using. Considering, you know, I've been teaching myself how to do this stuff.
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
I "Rawr" alot?
