What got you into cosplay?
My friends and their love of anime.
What was your first costume and why?
Toboe from Wolf's Rain. I had originally planned to go as L from Death Note due to how easy the costume is, but we failed to get my hair to dye black. It was the night before the con and I had to come with a character who's hair color was close-ish to mine, which is why I picked Toboe. I bought everything that night.
What is your favorite costume and why?
Probably Emil from TOS 2, he was first that cosplay that I made 100% by me. I also fit him more than any other character that I have cosplayed and was told, more than once, that I looked/acted a lot like him.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
A Koing Wolf (Zoids) Quadsuit. I know how to make a Quad, but I have no idea what to use to make the armor.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
One of them has to be:
A little girl came up to me while I was wearing Noishe and petted me while saying "Doggie". It was so cute.
Another one was when I was stuck at a convention by myself (as Emil) and a group of Tales cosplayers took me in.
I have so many, but those are the first that come to mind.
Do you participate in masquerades?
What was your best masquerade experience?
I had an amazing experience at a tiny, one-day, free con. The people were so friendly and I got to know the ones that were sitting by me.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
I won First place in Kitsunecon's 2011 cosplay contest with Noishe (old version). I won best Novice with Julio at Animarathon 2012. I won a Judge's Award with Noishe (new version) at Ohayocon 2013.
Tell us a little about yourself
Get ready for the random:
I am in my Senior year of High school. Sewing is one of my biggest hobbies, but I also write. I love the Pokemon video game, too. I wish that I had fabric store closer to me.
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
I seem to cosplay video game characters more than anime. (Or at least I tend to make my major ones from Video Games.) I want to cosplay more from anime, but I always find myself going back to games.
My favorite anime
Ginga Densetsu Weed, Wolf's Rain, Prince of Tennis, Zoids, and so many more that I will list later.
My favorite game(s)
Tales of the Abyss, Tales of Legendia, Tales of Symphonia, Pokemon, Okami, Monster Rancher, and The World Ends With You.
