What got you into cosplay?
Well, I've been a anime/manga-fan for a very long time, but meeting certain friends and being able to talk about it and fangirl with them ignited my passion even more.
Then one of them said that we should cosplay, which I had never really considered for myself before. And so the journey began! |D
What was your first costume and why?
My first costume was Lucy from Elfen Lied, and I consider it my first REAL cosplay. Anything before that doesn't count. She's a really interesting character, and I think her whole story kind of makes you think about things. For me it's difficult to really like her, because of her cruelty, but I can also empathise. Definitely a very powerful character, I think, and the anime and manga really got me emotional.
What is your favorite costume and why?
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
An entire list of them.
I just don't have all the means for them yet.
Helen from Claymore, Vocaloid VY2 Yuuma, the Dolorosa and Aradiabot from Homestuck are the most prominent, I'd say. They'll just stay dreams for a long time probably.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Meeting new friends and talking to them about our fandoms has been wonderful!
Do you participate in masquerades?
I do like watching them, but I don't really want to participate. 1. Because I hardly have any special craftmanship skills so far. 2. Because I don't care too much about that competitive side of cosplay.
Tell us a little about yourself
Not much to say, really.. I'm 19 and in 12th grade and apart from cosplay I also enjoy reading. I collect manga and watch anime, too, but I guess that's mostly a given. Hmm, and I guess I could mention that I'm vegetarian, mostly vegan.
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
If you like - message me!
I don't bite and enjoy getting to know new people with similar interests. :D
