What got you into cosplay?
Hmm, probably seeing all these epic cosplayers around and being like "I want to do that too!" I may never be at their level but I'll do my best!
What was your first costume and why?
My first costume was a Gothic Lolita. Why, because it's cute and less finicky than an actual character. It sucked but at least held merit from not being ita-loli, ah on to better things now *sigh*
What is your favorite costume and why?
Probably my Rise cosplay because it's accurate-ish. Though Akihiko and Death Scythe were fun too!
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
One that had every detail perfect and fit me really well, not sure if I have a specific in mind... Just something super cool XD
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
AN 2011 Persona photoshoot was boss!

My other passion is ABJD (Asian ball jointed dolls). You can find me on DoA as Yuu-chan :3
Sometimes I do dolly cosplay for them.
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
Modifying regular clothes into J-Rock stuff is fun!
