What got you into cosplay?
I was at a local Japanese festival my town was holding and fell in love with the concept of cosplaying when I watched their cosplay contest.
What was your first costume and why?
My first costume was Chen Yakumo from the Touhou Project. I was still relatively young then and figured it would be a good idea to cosplay a younger character as well.
What is your favorite costume and why?
I'm not quite sure at this point! Back when I first began cosplaying four years ago, I didn't make any of my costumes because I didn't have the skill. Therefore, I suppose I don't really have any opinion on how well the costumes turned out.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Not really. At this point, I'm just trying to get back into the cosplay scene!
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
I believe it was when I grouped up with a bunch of other Touhou cosplayers and roamed around a con. Many people gathered around to take pictures and I truly felt like a star.
Do you participate in masquerades?
No--at least not yet. I'm very into theatre, so it wouldn't surprise me if I eventually will.
Tell us a little about yourself
I'm a student who loves theatre, neuroscience, playing the piano, drawing, singing, and playing video games. Even though I tend to have a lot of hobbies, I have difficulty balancing my work with my free time, haha!
