What got you into cosplay?
Just the fun to be someone else - mostly my favorite characters
What was your first costume and why?
Shinji (Neon Genesis Evangelion) - it was just hangin in my wardrobe.
The first "real" costume was Satoshi/Ash from Pokémon, because I like him ^o^ Need no other reason
What is your favorite costume and why?
My favorite costumes are my two Kairi costumes (v2 of the KH version and the in-game version of KH2), the Yuna Summoner costume and my Clow Country Sakura.
I do love those characters so much, so I've tried to be as accurate as possible and to work as good as possible.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
I do have too many of costumes I really love and dream of to make one day to list here, so wait and see.
Do you participate in masquerades?
Yes, I love stage performances.
What was your best masquerade experience?
My performance in the DCM final round 2008. I've been scared to ruin the whole show because I had not enough time to practice Yunas dance - just tried it two or three times about two hours before I was meant to go on stage and show it >___<
But in the end everything turned out great and I was told how wonderful my performance would have been and a few times I heard people cried, just because they liked it so much ^^
I didn't win anything, but to hear so many nice things about my performance and to have so much fun with the other final participants made this day something really special ^^
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Yes. A couple of small awards, 'best in show/individual contest' with Yuna Summoner and became 'Female German Cosplay Master 2009' with my first TRC Sakura costume.
Tell us a little about yourself
I'm working in a labratory of a clinical center. Most of the time I like my job, but of course there are days I just hate it ^^;;
Since I moved to munich I don't see my family very often - my elder brother still lives at my parents and my elder sister moved to vienna together with her two children and her husband. Only my younger sister (Evil_Uke_Sora here on cosplay.com) lives in munich as well, so we can meet whenever we want to.
