What got you into cosplay?
One day I was at a local gaming shop. Talked to the girl behind the counter. She dragged me kicking and screaming, it was quite painful to be honest. Then after a few years (and some mild weight gain) I slowed down becuase I didn't fit into most of my older costumes very well, and there aren't many charactors I like enough to cosplay left.
What was your first costume and why?
If you want to get techinal. Jason Voorhees is my first costume that was "Made" so to speak, and not bought. It was for Halloween, so I'm not sure how much that REALLY counts. But I did it becuase it's a fun costume to act out in. My first real cosplay was Luigi because, lets face it I'm lazy and he's easy.
What is your favorite costume and why?
Rocky Balboa. It's just such a random thing to be wearing to these kinds of events and I get so many random guesses as to what the costume is. Plus I think it's highly amuseing to hear parents explain a costume to their kids instead of the other way around.
Though now that Rocky is semi-retired I'm really likeing Dr. Who (11th) since he can fit into ANY event.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Thanos from Marvel Comics. But that body type is so out there that it's too unlikely to happen for me
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Probably Onna! (Yeah I know I'm going to be the first and only person to say that) But that was the first time I got to put alot of faces to names I had heard.
Do you participate in masquerades?
Only one, honestly I don't see myself doing it again. Takes up too much time at the con.
What was your best masquerade experience?
Eh. Not a fan of them.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
No, nor do I care to.
Tell us a little about yourself
I have a decent job at a bank . Play Heroclix at times, read more American Comics then I do mangas, though I do try to follow One Piece at the very least.
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
My favorite anime
Sailor Moon, DragonBall Z, One Piece, Neon Genesis Evangelion, Haurhi, Azumanga Daioh (Perfer the manga though),
My favorite game(s)
I'm a big fan of the older 2d platformers 8-bit and 16-bit were my favorite times of gaming. But I'm also a big fan off all the Wii Sports games. Mostly because I don't devote as much time to video gaming as I used to. But the Marvel vs Capcom series has always been alot of fun.
My favorite book(s)
I'm a big fan of Sarah Vowell's work, The Looking Glass Wars is a good series of books, Haruhi light novels, Stanton Friedman's work on UFOs are good reads, and I was a fan of the Oz Books when I was younger. (Giant run on sentence of DOOM)
My favorite character(s)
Too many to list. For I am fanboy.
My favorite movies(s)
Star Wars, Friday the 13th, Ginger Snaps, Ghost Dog, there's really alot and I'm pretty randomly into different genres
My favorite actors/actresses
Baw. No answers for you internet!
