What got you into cosplay?
I went t my first anime convention in 2005...Anime Weekend Atlanta 2005. I was 15, and I went with my then-boyfriend, and was excited! When I got there, the first thing I saw was a cosplay of the Pyramid head on Silent Hill. At first, I thought it was weird as my boyfriend took pictures. But then I saw a cosplay of Final Fantasy X-2 Yuna's special dressphere, which I thought was beautiful when I first played the game. Long story short, history was made.
What was your first costume and why?
My first costume was in 2007, and it was LuLu from Final Fantasy X. I wanted to cosplay as her because I thought she was the most beautiful character on FFX. She was dark and mysterious, but she was caring and not afraid to say it like it is...she was a lot like me. Plus, she had the most unique costume, I had to be in it.
What is your favorite costume and why?
I have quite a few favorites, so I'll name a few. I like Devil Hunter Yohko's outfit, FF X-2 Rikku (Thief), FF X-2 Yuna (Gunner), FF X-2 Paine (Warrior), and Super Sailor Saturn, and Super Sailor Moon.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
I've never made a whole cosplay before, because I can't sow. But I would love to cosplay as some of my OC's. =) Soon....soon....
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
In 2007, cosplaying as LuLu, I got my picture taken so many times. And it was fun to reenact battles and scenes with random strangers dressed in FFX attire. I will never forget when I did a reenactment scene with a guy dressed as Wakka, reenacting the LuLu/Wakka scene on the boat trip...the cameras and fans loved it. =)
Do you participate in masquerades?
Oh no, I'm shy. O_O But I'd love to, though.
What was your best masquerade experience?
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
