What got you into cosplay?
I started watching anime at a pretty young age, and about a year later, I got interested in cosplay too. I didn't have any friends who liked anime and cosplay (or even knew what those mean), so it took a long time before I actually cosplayed anything. Before my first cosplay, I was pretty secretive about my hobby as well. After a while though, I finally decided to "come out of the closet" and tell my friends about anime. They suddenly got interested too and so we all started cosplaying for realz. xD
What was your first costume and why?
My first costume was probably Orochimaru from Naruto. My friends made me cosplay him, and even though I didn't like it at first, the costume was fairly easy to make so I ended up cosplaying him. It was a complete fail. That mutant creation of a costume will never see daylight again. Anyway... The first costume I actually wore to a con would be the western-version of Souji Okita from Hakuouki Shinsengumi Kitan. I absolutely love the character and I more or less resemble him too (looks AND personality) + he's so unbelievably awesome and hawt! >///> So yeah, my favourite character.
What is your favorite costume and why?
Well, since I've only made a few cosplays, it's easy to guess. Souji-kun of course! I've never spent that much time making a cosplay before, and god, I had fun while doing it. It was pretty complicated for a beginner like me, so I actually had to order the vest-jacket-thingy, but I made most of the cosplay myself~ I did make some errors along the way and it isn't the most comfortable cosplay ever, but I still absolutely love it.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
I don't really have a certain dream costume, but if I had one, it would be something with lots and lots of details, preferably an armor of some sort, and the character would have to be someone I really, really like.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Ehehe~ That's getting a little private. *wink wink* (...Get out of here, pervy sage.) (Naruto reference anyone?)
Tell us a little about yourself
I'm a hyper, positive and upbeat otaku/fangirl from Finland. My hobbies are anime and cosplay (of course), studying japanese and everything about Japan, parkour, just relaxing and listening to music, hanging out with friends, and playing games on my computer and Nintendo.
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
I'm going to be the pirate king, a'ight? ...Joking. I love One Piece.
