What got you into cosplay?
Though I always dressed up I didnít become aware of Cosplay culture until I was in my early teens and met a few girls into Anime (which I hadnít heard of before). They started dressing me up for conventions. At first I didnít like it that much - I was too shy! - but after a while I found it to be a blast!
What was your first costume and why?
Well when I was a kid I bought a dress to look like Dorothy and a little blouse to go with it and I searched everywhere for red patten-leather shoes, but when those didnít seem dorothy enough because they didnít sparkle I glued sequence all over them! My first technical cosplay costume for a convention was Sally Po from Gundam Wing. My best friends chose it for me; I donít remember why. I remember looking around for actual military greens and then modifying those myself. Thatís usually how I make my costumes. I find something already constructed, then modify or deconstruct and recreate it.
What is your favorite costume and why?
Morrigan has been my favorite costume. I have a strong affinity for the character and a happy history with my closest friends and Dragon Age. It was a work of passion.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
I have several ideas for future costumes - at this point they are all dreams :)
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
Thank you to all my friends, and my family, those talented collaborates without whom I would have no inspiration and no art.
