What got you into cosplay?
After attending my very first anime convention and seeing the skilled cosplayers there, I was motivated into trying it myself.
What was your first costume and why?
My first costume was a simple white lolita outfit. I pulled a white dress from my closet and had help making the hairband. It was simple to make so I did so.
What is your favorite costume and why?
Right now, my favorite costume is my costume of Long Kui from Chinese Paladin 3. I designed many aspects of her outfit myself, so it was really satisfying seeing the end product. It was also the costume I used the least pre-bought materials for.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
I'd love to make several, actually! Wang Yuan Ji (Dynasty Warriors 7) and Asuna (SAO) are among the few.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Actually, my most memorable cosplay experience has been with my Fluttershy outfit at Anime North 2012. I met many enthusiastic fans, and the community was warm and welcoming. I definitely had a lot of fun.
Do you participate in masquerades?
I haven't yet, but I'm hoping to enter my first this year.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Richmond Hill Cosplay Tea Party - Photographer's Choice
