What got you into cosplay?
The quality of costumes I've seen others do, and the fun they all seemed to have showing them off. I love acting, and cosplay just feeds into that.
What was your first costume and why?
Seifer, from Final Fantasy VII. I am a big Final Fantasy fan, but so many people tend to do the Clouds and Squalls, I wanted to be different and do a villain.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
A Veritech fighter from Macross/Robotech
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
At Anime North 2013, dressed up as Tonberry. Was heading to the Saturday afternoon Final Fantasy Photoshoot, and got tapped on the shoulder. Turned around, to find a Metro Toronto Police Officer standing there! After gulping in worry, the officer asked to take my picture, cuz he recognized me from the game!
Do you participate in masquerades?
Sometimes. In a group.
What was your best masquerade experience?
Only had one so far, and the entire masquerade was so much fun!
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
