What got you into cosplay?
I decided I wanted to dress up for Halloween, and I was really into Yu-Gi-Oh! GX and so I wanted to dress up as Alexis Rhodes. My friend told me to look up the costume online and so I did, but ended up having it made. I also remembered my friend was going to Anime North, and I wanted to check it out myself, so I registered and when Anime North came around, I went. It was pretty fun.
What was your first costume and why?
Alexis Rhodes and Jesse Anderson from Yu-Gi-Oh! GX. I guess I chose them because I liked their outfits. I still have to re-make some stuff on both of them though.
What is your favorite costume and why?
I'm actually hoping to get it done for this year, Hungary from Hetalia - in her military uniform. It's my favourite version of her, plus I wanted something less..."girly" because she's usually drawn in her green maid outfit.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
I'm cosplaying from stuff I used to watch when I was a kid, so cosplaying from Sailor Moon would be nice. A bit of nostalgia I guess. It'd really nice to make a costume that's really elaborate, but right now I don't think I have the skills for that, but maybe sometime soon.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
I was glad that I had a lot of people came up to me during Anime North and told me that they loved my costume. Made me feel really happy; though the only thing I didn't like about my costume were the boot covers I made, haha.
Do you participate in masquerades?
No. It sounds fun but I don't think I have it in me, hehe.
Tell us a little about yourself
When i'm not pretending to be somebody else, I like to watch sports. I love hockey and baseball and sometimes watch soccer. If you're a Leafs/Habs fan and a Blue Jays fan then you'd probably be my best friend. And of course, you'll catch me watching the World Cup and the Olympics (go Team Canada!).
I love rock music and love to read books and of course some of my manga.
