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?
Bilbo Baggins. I have been a huge Hobbit fan for a long time, and it was really
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?
Winning Best of Friday in the novice category for the hall cosplay competition at Katsucon 2013. It was an amazing experience and an even more amazing experience to have all of my friends were there with me.
Do you participate in masquerades?
never have, but I would like to some day

Tell us a little about yourself
I'm 28 and am currently working my way towards a Masters degree in social work. I adore costuming in many forms, though my focus has shifted from anime to more sci-fi and live action. I have finally gotten my webpage running, though it still requires a lot of work. Please feel free to take a look! I have also started up a facebook page, so please follow me!
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!
