What got you into cosplay?
My friend and I found out what conventions were, then cosplay. We both really wanted to try it and ended up getting really into it.
What was your first costume and why?
Noel, from Mermaid Melody. My friend and I loved that anime, so we decided to cosplay our favorite characters.
What is your favorite costume and why?
Probably my Saber Alter or Nagi cosplay. While I purchased Saber Alter, she was still my favorite character ever, so I felt justice in being very accurate with my wig and makeup. I made my Nagi costume, and it came out better than I imagined.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Probably Saber Alter. It's not a huge dream I think, but I'm sure I'll come up with something better once I finish Alter.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Probably this past Chibi-Pa. I ended up actually hanging out with my con friends for a while. Usually I would just meet them and then say hi to them at every con. It was a lot better than I expected.
Do you participate in masquerades?
I used to, but lately I've been working on having stress-free cons. Eventually I'll go back to doing it, once I make more costumes I'm proud of.
What was your best masquerade experience?
I guess back in 2008 with my Vocaloid group? I'm not really sure, since no one even knew what Vocaloid was back then.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Tell us a little about yourself
I'm currently taking a break from school this semester and I have a customer service job. I'm currently at that point where TV and weekly Japanese-released anime are my hobbies, other than cosplay. It's pretty laid-back.
