What got you into cosplay?
Originally, just liking some of the characters I saw in anime. Now, because of the fun it is to be the characters and seeing the beauty and artwork that many cosplayers put into their costumes.
What was your first costume and why?
Duo Maxwell from Gundam Wing. He was my favorite character from Gundam Wing and for a new college student, the cheapest costume I could make.
What is your favorite costume and why?
Made: Steampunk Hexadecimal - Because no one cosplays Hex very much, and steampunking her makes her so much fun!
Undertaker (Kuroshitsuji) - Because he's just such a fun guy!
Seen: There are far too many to state.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Currently working on one of them - Steampunk Hexadecimal. Another one I'd like to make is a female version of Loki from the live action Thor/Avengers movies.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Being asked to have my picture taken while wearing my simple Duo costume with people who obviously had more time to truly create their awesome costumes.
Do you participate in masquerades?
Not currently. Eventually I may.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Won Judges Award for Costume at ConTemporal (2013) by Dr. Fantastical.
Tell us a little about yourself
I work in a toy store, so I always have a reason to be happy (even if the job itself may suck at time). Seriously though...
I'm an active LARPer - Dominion (http://dominion.inclave.com). While I currently cannot afford many cons, I do try to go to some in North Carolina, particularly around the Raleigh and Durham areas.
I'm a hobby artist, particularly in decorating the windows (and sometimes body) of the vehicle I'm currently driving. I'm trying to get more into making costumes and cosplay as I'm tired of never finding that right look for various characters from store bought (and even salvage store bought) costuming.
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
I like hockey.
