What got you into cosplay?
Well, I went to this one website www.usagikou.com. . . cause I had been looking to buy a Sailor Moon costume for halloween, and I saw this beautiful girl with pale skin, and real odango atama, and a Serenity Royalty dress. . . I was dumbfounded. . . I thought it was the girl Naoko must've used as her model. . .and then I found she was a regualr person. . . I skimmed her photos, and ever since I have just loved SM cosplay.
What was your first costume and why?
Well, it doesn't really exsist yet. I have sketches, but I can't quite make it myself yet. . . because I don't know all the techniques I'd need to complete it, and if I had it commissioned, it'd be around 1,000 dollars, and I don't have that kind of money to throw around, technically. I want the Neo-Queen Serenity Manga version dress, done to my very specific uhhh. . .specifacations. I love all of the Serenity Royalty (up untill Rini's dress, I don't like it), and their gowns. I absolutely love love love the manga version though because of the bodice, it makes the dress that much more beautiful.
What is your favorite costume and why?
Actually, this one done by Barbie Tsukino (google her). . . the wig, and the form, and the fact that she is beautiful . . she did an Anime NQS, and it was perfect!
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
For myself, I wish I could make the perfect-est Anime NQS gown. . . I wouldn't mind wearing it how I have in my head to prom ^^
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
I went to Sakuracon '05 in Seattle with my enemy who doesnt know he's my enemy. . . it was awesome, my first and last (for a while) CON. I wore this pink prom dress, and it had the ombre` fade effect. It went from light pink at the top, to dark pink at the bottom, and we got some kanekleon fske hair, about 45 inches long, and pink spray for my hair, and I was Princess Rini, the really half-assed version. It was great though, everyone asked me how I figured out the cone-like odango atama!
Do you participate in masquerades?
What was your best masquerade experience?
. . .
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Sadly no =\ (but you can tell why obviously.)
Tell us a little about yourself
Well, I attend a school. I don't really live in Tokyo (or do I?) I quite enjoy Harajuku on a Sunday, or sometimes the little cafe` outside my house in a small wood-land town in Washington. I go to (Insert name of town here) High Scool, in Washington. My natural hair-colour is dirty blond, but I chopped off about two feet of it three months ago, and dyed it black (stupid stupid me!). I am letting it grow back out though (it's currently shoulder length. . .like just bearly touching or a bit above my shoulders). My hobbies are web-design, listening to Dragostea Din Tei, and obsessing over Sailor Moon.
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
I'm a Sailor Moon whore. . . and Saiya is hott. . . oh and the guy who played Mamoru Chiba in PGSM is really hott too.
