What got you into cosplay?
My awesome sister.
What was your first costume and why?
Ehehe, let's ignore the one I would run around in when I was six. I got seriously into cosplay for the purpose of cosplaying England from Axis Powers Hetalia because he's pretty much my favourite anime character of all time.
What is your favorite costume and why?
At the moment, Grell. I guess because his/her/zir personality is so fun, combined with the fact that I love scaring myself with how much I don't look like me. X) That said, all my cosplays are special to me for different reasons.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Bunches. A super elaborate pirate!England, Roy Mustang from FMA, Kenshin Himura from Rurouni Kenshin, The Operator (a.k.a. Slenderman) from Marble Hornets, Asher from Sugar Stars (because not only is he awesome, he has the same name as me! :D), and a cosplay duo of Grell and Madam Red as a steampunk Victorian Team Rocket.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Either Otakon 2011 or Katsucon 2012. Or both.
Do you participate in masquerades?
Not yet :(
Tell us a little about yourself
Currently in university. I spend my free time reading, writing fantasy novels, making cosplay, roleplaying, drawing, playing violin and guitar, reading manga, watching anime, and forming an army of minions to take over the world. Y'know, normal teenager stuff.
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
All my costumes are handmade.
I'm part of the duo This&That Cosplay (I'm That, for the record; This's cosplay.com account is deidemL) and my Hetalia-centric cosplay group is called Nation Imposters.

Yikes. I guess England from Hetalia, tied with L from Death Note, and then Russia or maybe America for second... nono, Grell and Undertaker from Kuroshitsuji would be second, maybe? Oh yes, and then Envy and Mustang from FMA for, er, third? Ah, forget it.
