What got you into cosplay?
when i was little, i was always the one running around with a costume on. I guess the love of costuming never left me, and when I became interested in (read: obsessed with) anime and manga, I discovered a community I fit right into.
What was your first costume and why?
Dog of the Military from FMA. I love the show, and the costume was great, but I felt like it needed something more. Then the ears, paws, and collar came to mind...
What is your favorite costume and why?
Master Form Sora. It's the most complex costume I've done to date and I love it.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Seiten Taisen from Saiyuki. I'm hoping to put it together one day when I have to skill and the cash to do it.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Getting all of Yondaime's team together at Katsucon. That was awesome, but I think we were a bit too goofy for our own good lol
Also, all of my experiences cosplaying Hunny from Ouran. It never fails to attract hugs and squeals. The best time I had was at MangaNEXT '07, thanks to my Host Club!!!
Arabian Host Club for the win!! (AUSA 2007)
End of Series Host Club for even more win! (Katsucon 2008)
Do you participate in masquerades?
never have, but I would like to some day
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
* Honorary Mention at MangaNEXT '06 for Goku
* 2nd Place Novice at Otakon '07 for Master Form Sora
* "Best Things Come in 3s" at Zenkaikon '09 for Wolfram von Bielefeld
Tell us a little about yourself
I'm 26 and currently looking for a job. I adore costuming in many forms, though my focus has shifted from anime to more sci-fi and live action. I'm in the process of setting up a website that I have been attempting to get going for several years now and I'm pretty proud with how it's turning out.
A friend of mine and I have started a small cosplay photography business as well, which I am greatly looking forward to getting off the ground!
