What got you into cosplay?
I've always wanted to do it, but had no where to go or no money to do it. This was my first year cosplaying, I went to NYCC. I love dressing up as my favorite characters. It just makes me more in love with the character or the show/game. It's an amazing experience and I cannot wait to do more!
What was your first costume and why?
Misty from Pokemon. Pokemon is the first thing I ever got into; the shows, the games, the cards, the stuffed animals. I had to do a character from there, also with a tight budget. That's where Misty comes in and it turned out great. Everyone loved it and asked for my picture :D
What is your favorite costume and why?
My favorite is one I have not yet worn to a convention. I'm using it for Connecticut in July but it is Piplup, the penguin Pokemon.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Right now my dream costume is Ulquiorra. I absolutely love him and cannot wait to get that outfit together. Hopefully soon. Beside that I would love to do a skyrim costume or Lady Loki. I would love to do Erza from Fairy tail but I could never compete with her boobs ._. Also, I wouldn't know where to start with making armor.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
It was my first time at a convention, and I was dressed up as Misty and every where I turned someone was asking for a photo of me or with me. It was weird at first, but I grew to love it. I can't wait for an experience like that again.
