What got you into cosplay?
My friends started cosplaying, so to support them I did it too. I gained more interest in it as I grew older.
What was your first costume and why?
My very first cosplay was "Random Kouga Follower" because my best friend cosplayed as Kouga from Inu Yasha. I wanted to support her, so I made that one up. The year after though, I sewed a Kagome cosplay - also from Inu Yasha, and the rest is history.
What is your favorite costume and why?
My current favorite is a human version of Rarity from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic because it's an easy cosplay that a lot of people recognize.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
I have many dream cosplays. :)
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
During a SF Cherry Blossom Festival I wore my Kagome cosplay with my friend who was Kouga. We ran into a Sango and Shippo and took photos. Before we knew it, we gathered a crowd and a lot of people were snapping photos of us. Standing there for those several minutes was quite the adrenaline rush for a first time cosplayer! Loved every minute of it.
Do you participate in masquerades?
No, I'd prefer to watch.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Tell us a little about yourself
I've graduated college and the Wedding Planning Institute, so I am a certified wedding planner. I have a lot of hobbies: reading manga, watching anime, making deco den items, origami, cooking, shopping, singing, drawing, writing and so on. I'm an occasional video gamer girl too.
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
I love people and things that combine geekery/nerdy stuff and weddings. <3
