What got you into cosplay?
I've always been into animes like Pokemon and Yu-gi-oh as a kid, and when I was in 7th grade a friend was reading Fruit's Basket and I fell in love. She explained more about anime and then shortly after I found out about conventions and cosplay and been going to them and working on cosplays ever since.
What was your first costume and why?
My first real cosplay was Shikamaru from Naruto. Was a character I really loved and the first character I felt I could really cosplay.
What is your favorite costume and why?
That would have to be my Riza Hawkeye cosplay. I bought the original costume a while back and plan to make the uniform myself one day. I've always felt really awesome in the costume itself and have always had a blast when wearing it at conventions.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
I've got a pretty big lost of cosplays I'd like to do but I'd say a dream cosplay is Jaina Proudmoore from World of Warcraft. She's a great character with an interesting and awesome design and I hope I can not only make the cosplay but pull the character off someday!
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Ohdear. There's a lot, I have a ton of amazing and fun cosplay memories! I'd haveto say I always have a blast setting up and playing Ultimate Werewolf. It's a lot of fun and I've met a lot of great people that way!
Do you participate in masquerades?
Not yet, I really want to one day though.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Nope, never had the chance to enter a contest. Once I start getting better at making my own cosplay I'd love to enter one someday.
Tell us a little about yourself
I'm not working right now, I'm married and my husband works. I'm working on things like sewing and other crafty stuff and I'd love to hopefully make a living off that someday. I've always loved animals and would love to work with them as well. That husband I mentioned is amazing and we have two dogs, a Corgi named Nina and a Shetland Sheepdog/Border Collie mix named Nixie. As far as hobbies go I crochet, sew, occasionally work with clay, and play videogames like World of Wacraft and Pokemon.
My favorite anime
Dogs:Bullets and Carnage, Fullmetal Alchmist, Fruits Basket, Black Butler, Spice and Wolf, YuGiOh, and many more. As far as other shows goes(since there isn't a section for that) there's Bob's Burgers, MLP, and more that I can't think of right now.
My favorite game(s)
World of Warcraft, Okami, the Ace Attorney series, Harvest Moon, Pokemon, Animal Crossing, and I'm sure there's more.

Anything WoW lore related, Harry Potter, Hunger Games and probably more, I don't read very often.
