What got you into cosplay?
I just immediately loved the idea after seeing cosplayers at Anime USA 2009, and I just thought, "I really want to do that!"
What was your first costume and why?
My first costume was White Mokona without a wig. I did it to match my best friend who was Black Mokona.
What is your favorite costume and why?
So far, it's probably Spain from Axis Powers Hetalia. I was my first full cosplay with a wig that I put together myself. I'm very proud of it.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Oh gosh. I would love to do Shaman Fight HoroHoro, Syaoran from TRC, Daichi from Yankee-kun to Megane-chan, Tono from Gakuen Alice, and many, many more.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
So far, It had to be at Anime USA 2010, my first time cosplaying. I was wearing White Mokona from Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles and my friend was wearing Black Mokona. The second my friend and I walk away from getting our badges, we run into Princess Tomoyo and Fai. They came straight up to us completely in character and we take some pictures together. Within minutes, we were surrounded as a group and had so many photos taken. It was such a great feeling :D
Do you participate in masquerades?
No, but I would love to.
What was your best masquerade experience?
I haven't participated yet, so I can't say.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Nope, I don't make costumes for competition.
Tell us a little about yourself
I'm still in school, living with my family, keeping a 4.0 in school. (I'm a work-a-holic and stress al lot.) My dad is in the navy, so I've moved a lot, hopefully make it through high school withput moving. I don't have a job, I play volleyball through my highschool and I'm pretty obsessed. I also draw and condition (once again, addicted) besides cosplay. I still have no idea what I'm going to do when I grow up.
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
I hope to improve a lot in cosplay/crossplay and I will talk to anyone :D
