What got you into cosplay?
My interest in anime started when I was young, I watched Sailor Moon as a child and loved magic girls. I drifted away from anime as I got older, but when InuYahsa debuted on TV I was enthralled again. The first time I cosplayed I just wore a gynamstics body suit, and a dark blue cape I made, for Raven from Teen Titans. I was also Haruhi from The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya. After that, I stopped cosplaying for a few years. I don't know how it happened but I got back into it again, and now my love for it is stronger than ever. I consider my first real cosplay Haruko from FLCL at Sakura Con 2011. I love my cosplay community and I love cosplaying with my sister.
What was your first costume and why?
Like I said above, I consider my first real cosplay to be Haruko from FLCL.
What is your favorite costume and why?
My favourite costume so far would have to be my Sheryl Nome French Girl. I bought it second hand, but It wasn't very good, and it didn't fit me well. So I completely changed it myself. I also got a teddy bear made, to match the teddy bear in Ranka's Niji Iro Kuma Kuma concert. As I first wore this cosplay my sister who was wearing Ranka's pastel outfit from the concert.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
There are lots of costumes I would like to do. Unfortunately I do not enjoy sewing and I am a Full Time student, so I don't have the time to make my own cosplays. But some dream cosplays are:
-Eureka from Eureka seven
-Many more Sheryl Nome outfits
-Cure Black (with my sis as Cure White)
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Well, my sister and I and a few friends were at the summer festival 2011 at SFU. And we were looking at the water lilies in the pond, and I was wondering how deep the water was. A random guy walked by and asked what we were doing. He then proceeded to take all his clothes off and jump into the pond, OMG! He pulled up the stem of one of the lilies to show us how long it was. He then jumped out and put his clothes back on and walked away....
Do you participate in masquerades?
I have been to 2 masquerade Balls so far. One at Cos & Effect 2011 and one at Sakura Con 2012. Last year my sis and I just wore out grad dresses, but this year we actually cosplayed Sheryl Nome and Ranka Lee, in their White and Red dresses. It was lots of fun. I made us matching masks too
What was your best masquerade experience?
This year at sakura Con was lots of fun...except having to wait in line to get in.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
I don't make my own costumes do to my time constraints, so i have never entered into any contests.
