What was your first costume and why?
First costume? Aside from a couple iffy Halloween costumes, that would have to be the Mad Hatter (Belial) from Angel Sanctuary! I love the character and the series, so it felt like a natural fit for my first foray into cosplay.
What is your favorite costume and why?
Definitely Grune, from Tales of Legendia! She was so much fun to make, and lots of fun to wear to conventions. I get so excited when someone recognizes her~
Do you participate in masquerades?
I'd love to, but I don't at this time.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?

Currently a grad student (boo) researching cosplay and costuming. I love to sew, knit, draw, sing and dance! Video games and anime are much-loved distractions, as are cats!
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
I'm conducting interviews about cosplay for my thesis now! If you want to participate, drop me a line - it'll be fun!
