About Me / Q&A

What got you into cosplay?
Well in 2011 we went to anime north for the first time, and needless to say i was ignorant, I thought nobody would be dressing up and it would be dumb, as soon as the first day was over i wanted to make 90% of the costumes even though i didn't know how. Just being in the presence of such awesome costumes lifted my ignorance and made me want to do it!
What was your first costume and why?
Gildarts Clive from Fairy Tail was my first and so far only costume. When I decided to do it i thought it would be easy and he had this level of "badassary" that only the worlds most over powered people can have. Yet he was calm collected and funny. I thought it would be a piece of cake, It took me 4 months to do and i was up till 2:30 the night before finishing.
What is your favorite costume and why?
Gildarts was my favorite. He was hard but soo worth it in the end. Too many times i wanted to quit but kept at it. The cloak is probably the deciding factor though as it's a legitimate wool cloak that could be used in cold weather and has an 8 inch collar and pauldrons.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
My dream costume used to be Canti from FLCL but im a bit OCD about all the fine details, and although i like to think im fit i don't have the 9" circumfrance stomach Canti has (nobody does). Otherwise i guess a cooled gundum suit something i can wear all day and has little computer fans powered by 9v batteries keeping it cool!
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Fairy Tail 2012 at Anime North, My first and so far my only photo shoot but everyone was amazing, such a friendly atmosphere i felt bad walking by other photoshoots that just weren't as into it as us.
Do you participate in masquerades?
Not yet...Maybe later
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
My personal approval and most pissed off sister that got tired of helping me...thats about it.
