What got you into cosplay?
Craftsmanship and love for the characters
What was your first costume and why?
Hitomi Kanzaki from Vision of Escaflowne, because she is one of my favorite characters and exemplary of a strong female lead.
What is your favorite costume and why?
Sailor Uranus, because I am very proud of how it turned out, and I have a lot of fun cosplaying with my friends as the other Sailor Soldiers.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
General Olivier Armstrong from FMA: Brotherhood!
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
I was dressed as Sailor Uranus, and a little girl came up and asked for my signature in her princess book, and told me that Haruka was her favorite scout.
Do you participate in masquerades?
What was your best masquerade experience?
The most fun was probably performing with my best friend at Super Dimension Convention 2017.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Yes, since I started participating in masquerades I have won Best Craftsmanship, Best Performance, Novice/Intermediate Best in Show, and Judge's Choice!
