What got you into cosplay?
I just really wanted to dress up and go to a convention and meet people with similar interests as mine. I lived in a very conservative town, so it was hard to find people who liked anime or J-rock. And I wanted an excuse to start working with more unconventional fabrics, like PVC.
What was your first costume and why?
Toshiya's white MACABRE TOUR 00>>01 military costume. Haha, I hadn't a bloody clue as to what I was getting myself into when I decided to make this costume; I'd barely gotten halfway through making it when I felt like I wanted to give up. But I on trucking for the sake of showing my love to Dir en grey and Toshiya. XD
What is your favorite costume and why?
Erk... I can't really say since I've only gotten one finished so far. But I'll predict that Toshiya's plaid MACABRE TOUR costume will be my favorite. It's so cute and I don't think many people--if any--have attempted it yet.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Juclesia's (from the Korean game, Magna Carta) outfit. Oh my gosh, it's sooooo revealing (how about half of a skirt, eh?), but it's really gorgeous.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Otakon 2005 and getting all the compliments and photos.
Tell us a little about yourself
I'm a high school student in New Jersey, who wants the get the HELL out of NJ into Parsons School of Design in New York City and become a famous fashion designer. But you're not interested in that, so I'll just say: I was born, I'm here, and eventually... I'll die. XD Morbid, right?

Love and peace is all you need.
