What got you into cosplay?
I have always loved costumes so much! I wanted it to be like it was Halloween all the time. I also enjoy acting (I take acting classes) 'cause I'm a theatre kid. And I think sewing and DIY is really fun.
What was your first costume and why?
Pavi Largo from Repo! The Genetic Opera. It was originally a Halloween costume, but then I decided to just start going out in public in it and speaking in an Italian accent. From then on I decided I loved cosplay and I wanted to do more costumes.
What is your favorite costume and why?
Ciel Phantomhive. And It's my most recent. It's my favourite cosplay because it's from my most favourite anime in the world, Kuroshitsuji! Also, it has good memories attached to it because I wore it to KatsuCon recently and I had such a wonderful time.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Mina from Dracula. (Winona Ryder version) I just love the gorgeous red gown. I'd love to walk around wearing that. I just love Victorian clothing.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Definitely being Ciel at KatsuCon 18.
Do you participate in masquerades?
I haven't yet! But I really want to.
What was your best masquerade experience?
Haven't had one yet, but I hope I will some day.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Not yet. :(
Tell us a little about yourself
My name is Cara. I sing opera, dance ballet, modern, & para para, draw manga & realism (rarely), do makeup (horror & sfx as well as pretty, wearable makeup), act (I'm always in plays). I love horror movies, anime, comics, and musicals. I'm what I like to call a gothtaku. Pretty self-explanatory.
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
