What got you into cosplay?
The idea of bringing an image or a character to life. Not that I'm particularly good at acting as the characters, especially the stoic types. I imagine that's part of the learning curve.
What was your first costume and why?
If we're talking cosplay, then Ciel!Skull Bride version. XD I was really enthralled by the idea of creating the cage for this outfit, and the image itself was both beautiful and macabre. I guess I'm drawn to that sort of thing~
What is your favorite costume and why?
Anything that Ciel wears is a favorite. Although of what I've made, I really like the Skull!Bride outfit the most. Haha~
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
I'd like to complete Ciel's wardrobe. Haha~ There are a lot of cosplays I want to make: Carmilla from VH:Bloodlust. Seth and Esther from Trinty Blood. Magoichi Saika and Oichi from Sengoku Basara. Sima Shi, Sima Yi and quite a few others from Dynasty Warriors. Haha~ Like I said, quite a lot.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
I really liked going to Fanime in cosplay and going to the gatherings, but I think I prefer the smaller gatherings. You get to talk to your fellow cosplayers a lot easier. XD
Do you participate in masquerades?
I do now? Lol, I was kinda wishy-washy about entering tho~ Mostly because the cosplay I had on at the time was undergoing a test run :3
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Best Individual Cosplay for Oichi at DAIcon 2012~ :3
Tell us a little about yourself
I'm perpetually working and in school. I love my jobs (yeah, that's plural~). And I have way too many hobbies, and yet I'm still often bored! XD
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
