What got you into cosplay?
My boyfriend was cosplaying for Otakon and invited me to come with him. Since our favorite series and ship at the time was Raikou/Gau from Nabari, that's what we did. I fell in love with the hobby!
What was your first costume and why?
Gau Meguro from Nabari no Ou. Tenpa-kun here is very close to my heart for a number of reasons -- we are the same. For a first costume, I'm glad it was him.
What is your favorite costume and why?
God Tier Dave, for ease of comfort and the fun I've had in him so far. Heather Mason, because I adore Heather and response was AMAZING. Eileen Galvin, because I adore Eileen and it was a dream to be my Silent Hill OTP with my boyfriend. There are quite a few!
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
God Tier Roxy Lalonde from Homestuck! Princess Velvet from Odin Sphere! Mami Tomoe from Madoka! These goalposts keep moving as I keep accomplishing them!
Tell us a little about yourself
College sophomore who writes and cosplays, loves cats and cooking, and wants to work with languages and digital narratology someday.
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
We all start somewhere. Look at my gallery -- you'll see. Cosplay is not and should not be a hobby exclusive to people who fit a certain physical/financial/etc. mold! If you want to do it, do it, and I'll cheer for you.
