What got you into cosplay?
My friend, Caitlyn
What was your first costume and why?
Gaz from Invader ZIM. I hadn't watched very many anime series, and I was (and still am) a huge fan of Zim.
What is your favorite costume and why?
Hermione Granger, because I've looked to her as a role model since I was 7.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Hermione's Yule Ball gown, and Violet Baudelaire
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Walking around in public nearby a convention, and being recognized as the character I'm cosplaying. This happens most often when I cosplay Disney and Harry Potter characters.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Yes! I'm actually on a winning streak. I've never walked away from a contest without having won something. My biggest achievements include:
Judges' Choice and Artistic Quality, Novice section of Cos & Effect 2011's Costume Contest, for "Babydoll"
Best Hair, Masters section of Cos & Effect 2012's Costume Contest, for "Rapunzel"
First place, Intermediate section of Anime Evolution 2012's Cosplay Contest, for "Babydoll"
