What got you into cosplay?
Thinking about it, I loved playing dress-up as a child. I really got into costuming when I entered my pony, Shadow, into a costume class, and we went as a knight and jousting horse.
What was your first costume and why?
My first costume was Xena Warrior Princess. My first astual cosplay was as Youji Kudou, from Weib Kreuz (Knight Hunters). Weib was my first anime obsession.
What is your favorite costume and why?
This changes from time to time. Right now, I would say that Jack Sparrow is my favorite costume.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
My dream costume is in the works. Krad from DNAngel with full sized, moving wings. I had debued Krad an FanExpo 2006 but the costume was not yet complete and thus, still in the works.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Most recently, I entered a competition with my partner as Moiraine and Aldieb from the Wheel of Time series. The costume judge was the daughter of the books author who passed away not so long ago. She came out after the show and thanked me for honoring her father. I was so touched, I cried.
Do you participate in masquerades?
Yes, I love to compete and strive to get better and better.
What was your best masquerade experience?
My best experience came at Polaris 2011. We walked onto stage and could hear the audience gasp in delight. I felt like a movie star as the blue lights reflected off the sequins of my white gown...I still get shivers thinking of that moment.
