What got you into cosplay?
It's been slow going. After my first con (in '06) I decided I wanted to cosplay the next time. Bought my first costume (in '09) and have been trying to make my own more recently.
What was your first costume and why?
Amu (Shugo Chara). I actually made this one for my sister, and in the end she didn't want it anymore so I kept it for myself.
It's retired at the moment because it's in bad need of repairs and re-doing.
What is your favorite costume and why?
Jade Harley (Eclectica Dress) because it has such fun bright colors, and the outfit is comfortable and feels like something I just need to be wearing.
The Hell Girl sailor fuku is my next fave. I bring it to several cons just to bum around in.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Sakura (Cardcaptor/Tsubasa Chronicles) ANYTHING. Honestly, my dream is to just burn through all her outfits one by one. ;)
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Good: Getting a pic with Buddy Jesus.
Bad: Getting hugged from behind by someone I don't know as I was leaving the con at night. Seriously freaked me out! Definitely memorable though.
Do you participate in masquerades?
I've been to one. Wasn't cosplaying though. The room set-up was gorgeous, but the bf and I aren't very good dancers.
What was your best masquerade experience?
When we entered the masquerade and were announced as "Lord" and "Lady." And the Baron (The Cat Returns) was the host.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Nope. I'm super n00b.
