What got you into cosplay?
Basically, I've always felt like the transgender anime, comic book, and game characters were underrepresented at conventions. Which is an utter shame if you ask me. Plenty of women have absolutely no problem putting in the time and effort to portray a female-to-male character, but there's very few men willing to go all out for the male-to-females.
What was your first costume and why?
My first costume was way back in 2005. I went as Gino Gambino from Gaia Online. It was absolutely awful, but I stand by it damn it!
What is your favorite costume and why?
Favorite costume so far would definitely be Dr. Girlfriend. She was a lot of fun to wear, and I'm one of the few who can actually pull off "the voice". XD
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
I want to cosplay any and all transgender M2F characters I can find. My to do list so far includes Poison (Final Fight), Erica Anderson (Catherine), Bridget (Guilty Gear), Birdo (Mario), and Isabella (Paradise Kiss).
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Hands down, getting into an argument (in character) in my Doctor Girlfriend costume with a man doing a spot on Monarch impersonation. This went on for several minutes until it ended in hugs and feelings.
Do you participate in masquerades?
Not yet, but I'll be doing a walk on for SacAnime 2013. Cheer real loud for me!
Tell us a little about yourself
Right now, I'm doing a lot of work with other people's pets. It's super rewarding, and I've met a lot of really cool people on the job.
I've been studying up on gender illusion for the past two years, and finally decided to go public with it at conventions. Gotten a lot of wonderful feedback so far!
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
If you see me at con, say hi! I'm not jaded in the slightest, I'm a huge geek who loves to meet new people. :D
