What got you into cosplay?
A friend of mine introduced me to anime, and since I've always loved costuming, it was a no-brainer
What was your first costume and why?
Temari from Naruto (shields from tomatoes) It was my first official anime! I dabbled in the Sailor Moon movies as a kid but never really got into it until I realized, "Hey! There's more than just Sailor Moon!". When I first saw Temari, I flipped out because I loved fans. I mean, hello? 3 foot tall fan? Yes, please!
What is your favorite costume and why?
I have to get back to you on that one ^o^;
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Konohana Sakuya from Persona 4. I don't know why, but I am dying to make those shoe/stilt things.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
At AWA 2010, I went to a photoshoot dressed as Lala from D. Gray-Man and one girl demanded that I lay down like I was dead and let her sob over me. We had everyone laughing so hard that nobody could get a decent picture.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
I won Judge's choice for Mami Tomoe at AWA 2012. Since it was my first self-made costume, I almost cried because I was so excited :'D
Tell us a little about yourself
I'm a college freshman and newbie seamstress/hot glue gun wielder.
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
Cosplay is for YOUR entertainment. Don't let anyone's negative opinions stop you <3
