What got you into cosplay?
I dressed up for my first convention, and then found out that there was a whole hobby dedicated to dressing like characters.
What was your first costume and why?
Edward Elric, because when I first started, Fullmetal Alchemist was my WORLD. Plus I looked like the character, which was a nice start.
What is your favorite costume and why?
My favorite cosplay at the moment is Juliet Starling from Lollipop Chainsaw. It was the first cosplay I sewed everything on my own, and I'm really proud of it.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
I have a lot of dream cosplays, but my primary one would have to be Lulu from Final Fantasy X. I'm hoping to be able to do this within the next couple years.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Some of my favorites have been meeting Jessica Nigri, meeting Jen and Kelly from Parle Productions, and just going to conventions and meetups in general.
Do you participate in masquerades?
I haven't yet, but I'm hoping to sometime in the near future.
