What got you into cosplay?
Well, I used to think cosplaying was weird, and I think growing up I had a bit of a prejudice mindset (tumblr and the internet seems to widen your mind. or just going into the true world). I thought cosplaying was weird, the shows were weird, and didn't quite see how you could really fret over such things. But after being exposed to Hetalia, that opened the flood gates to a lot of things.. Including cosplay. As soon as I saw England, I knew I would be cosplaying as him.
What was your first costume and why?
Technically i cosplayed on halloween in 2010, but i didn't know what cosplay was. I was Link. My true first cosplay that I put more money into and such was England though.
What is your favorite costume and why?
This is a toughie. Only because my favorite costume that I won is my 10th Doctor, but I have not been able to wear it yet!
So for something I have already worn I would have to say Ellis. I made the shirt design myself, I got a lot of props together, and made quite a lot of it. So I was really happy with it and people actually recognized me!
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Pit from Kid Icarus-
The wings and other props would be the challenge. This would be a cosplay I would want to make myself.
Link from the Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess-
My childhood basically is the Legend of Zelda. The Ocarina of Time is another design of Link I want to do, but I also would like to make the Twilight Princess design since it's so detailed. This would be fun to wear.
Loki, The Avengers-
I really like his design from the Avengers. This cosplay would be a great challenge because of material and details. It will be fun constructing every bit of clothing and prop.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Going to San Japan 4TW. It was my first con and it was awesome!
Do you participate in masquerades?
I have not, but would love to!
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
In a Hetalia cosplay contest I won 2nd place out of everyone else in attendance (quite a lot of people). I was wearing my Halloween 2010 England.
