What got you into cosplay?
A combination of love for anime and being raised by a mom who always made my Halloween costumes by hand.
What was your first costume and why?
Kurapika, from Hunter x Hunter. He was my favorite character at the time and his outfit was really easy to make.
What is your favorite costume and why?
It's a tossup between Kurapika (my first), Lithuania (who I pull off really well), and Apollo Justice (who I also pull off really well).
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
A few. Rosa from FFIV, Oscar from Rose of Versailles, Utena (Rose Bride Dress) from Revolutionary Girl Utena.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
I have a few.
1. Cosplaying Apollo Justice for the first time and meeting a crapton of awesome Ace Attorney fans.
2. Keeping track of how many guys checked out one of my friends while she was corseted. She literally stopped traffic with her amazing rack.
3. Hosting an awesome tea party for Teahouse fans after a really fun photoshoot.
