What got you into cosplay?
For what got me into cosplay, I'm not really sure. I have always loved dressing up and pretending to be someone else, be it classic super heroes/villains or a Japanese student with unnaturally colored/gravity defying hair.
What was your first costume and why?
Technically my first cosplay experience was when I was 8, I loved Sailor Moon. I had all of the scouts+ Sailor Moon's costumes and accessories. My first official Otaku cosplay experience I dressed as Kagome(Inuyasha) and had a very otaku orientated camp out in my friend's backyard. Since then cosplay has become a prominent part of my life.
What is your favorite costume and why?
As of now, my favorite cosplay is the one I'm currently working on 'Grell' as for why I think it's because I love his character to a creepy level.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
My dream cosplay, that I really want to do but doubt I have the patience for is 'Angewoman' from the second season of Digimon.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Last summer, my friend who I haven't seen in 5 years came to visit me for 2 weeks. While she was here myself and a bunch of our friends planned and organized a huge Otaku party at my house, everyone was drunk and in cosplay. It's not the most exciting memory, but my most special.
Do you participate in masquerades?
I have, and I would love to again.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
No, I haven't. But, then again I have never participated in any competition for them.
