What got you into cosplay?
I'd always loved fantasy and had dreamed of being the characters, and soon Halloween wasn't enough, so I looked up anime cons in my area, and low and behold there was one!!
What was your first costume and why?
Miku Hatsune. She and Vocaloid were my craze at the time, and so of course I picked her to cosplay. It's because I didn't want to wait for Halloween that I went ahead and found an anime con.
What is your favorite costume and why?
Thus far Terezi Pyrope (Homestuck), not just because large fandoms are actually pretty fun to be part of (you just have to make sure everyone is behaving maturely), but also because it's probably the one I've been most satisfied with so far. I know a lot of people think Homestuck cosplays don't take much work, but I really think it's the most detailed one I've done so far. It really challenged my makeup skills especially when I realized I wouldn't be able to afford sclera lenses for her eyes.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Right now I'm working on what could be considered a dream cosplay - Ezio Auditore, with real leather, and plans to make the blade activate at a flick of my wrist. For the future though, probably Karliah from Skyrim. The Nightingale armor is just gorgeous, but that much leather will be hard to work with.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
My first year cosplaying, one of the people who were judging the contests told me that I looked just like Miku, who I was cosplaying at the time, and as a first time cosplayer it made me feel really good! :D As such I always try to encourage any new cosplayers I see.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Not thus far (unless you count my participation in some winning skits), but I hope to with my Ezio cosplay when it's finished.
