What got you into cosplay?
I've been a huge fan of anime and manga ever since I was a little kid, and after seeing lots of beautiful cosplays on the Internet, I thought it'd be fun to try doing it myself.
What was your first costume and why?
My first cosplay was Taiga Aisaka from Toradora. Toradora was one of my favorite animes at the time, and besides, since I am only 5 foot, I figured it would be suitable to pick a short character. xD Also, my parents aren't too keen on spending money on cosplays, so they wanted me to get a costume that wasn't too expensive or wild-looking.
What is your favorite costume and why?
So far it's Hong Kong from Hetalia, because it's simple and comfortable. I can just use my natural hair instead of a wig, and the huge sleeves are fun to wave around xD
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
When I was at Fanime 2012 cosplaying as Death the Kid, a person walked by and yelled, "Not so symmetrical now, are you?" (I was carrying two bags that really did not match at all xD) I pretended to be traumatized while my friends assured me that I still had beautiful symmetry.
Do you participate in masquerades?
Nope, but I love watching them ^-^
Tell us a little about yourself
Right now I'm in high school and wish I could just hurry up and get out of here. I'm an only child. Aside from cosplaying, my hobbies include photography, reading, watching anime, drawing, listening to music, traveling, and eating.
