What got you into cosplay?
I can't really remember, it just feels like I've always been interested in it.
What was your first costume and why?
My very first cosplay was a persocom, since Chobits was the first anime I had watched that wasn't played on YTV.
What is your favorite costume and why?
I don't have one at the moment, but I'm hoping my Anemone for Anime North this year will be it!
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
I have so many in my mind but I'd have to say Takuto from Star Driver as Ginga Bishounen! I'd love to level my tailoring skill enough to actually make it all on my own.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
When I cosplayed Hanyuu Furude at Anime North, and it was my first experience being asked by a photographer with a "big camera" to take my picture. A girl walked by and said, "Wow you are so pretty!" It just made me feel really good about myself.
Do you participate in masquerades?
I have once, it was the masquerade at Anime North the first year I went!
What was your best masquerade experience?
Chocolate Fondue + Strawberries
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
No! Besides my current inability to sew, I would be way to nervous to enter any kind of judging.
Tell us a little about yourself
Currently I am in my first year of College, I really don't like it. I am studying Travel and Tourism as I want to be able to experience other cultures around the world.
I am living with my other half, I don't know what I'd do without him.
I distract myself with video games when I'm bored or when my awesome memory forgets school work! I am currently on a hiatus from WoW hoping that will help with school.
