What got you into cosplay?
Getting into anime and learning about conventions, and combining that with the fact that I've always loved dressing up!
What was your first costume and why?
My first cosplay was Rinoa Heartilly. I love Final Fantasy 8 and I thought it would be simple for a first cosplay (Even though it was all tailored and store bought stuff).
What is your favorite costume and why?
It's so hard to choose which one if my favourite. It depends on what I'm excited for at the time!
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
I have a binder full of costumes I want to make. D: Though three of my long-time dream costumes since I started cosplaying have been Laguna Loire (FF8), Jillia Blight (Suikoden II), and Ursula (Breath Of Fire IV)
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
My most memorable experiences have been when people come up to me at a con and say that they admire my costumes, especially when I'm cosplaying something more or less obscure. Those moments are the best. :)
Do you participate in masquerades?
Sometimes I do, less so nowaday days.
What was your best masquerade experience?
Anime North 2010! Did a Reitman's commercial parody with a couple of my bestest friends. It was awesome!!!
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Honourable Mention (Masq) @ Anime North 2005, Honourable Mention (Hall) @ Youmacon 2009, Best Artisan @ Anime North 2010
