What got you into cosplay?
My very first convention! I really just wanted to dress up.
What was your first costume and why?
Tohru Honda from Fruits Basket, because I was 14 and super into it back then.
What is your favorite costume and why?
Any of my Tifa costumes just 'cause she's my favorite character to run around as. She's also really comfy.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Esther Blanchett's Queen of Albion outfit from Trinity Blood. Yukari Hayasaka's fashion show dress from Paradise Kiss. And Amulet Fortune from Shugo Chara!
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Once when I was crossplaying, I had to walk back to our hotel from the main hotel at San Japan 4 with my friend who was wearing a big poofy white dress and people asked us if we were married, lol.
Do you participate in masquerades?
Sometimes! I've only really done skits, though.
What was your best masquerade experience?
The masq. at A-Fest 2012! Where I performed "Gangnam Arcana" with my group, Tales of Cake. I was cosplaying Yukiko Amagi from Persona 4
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Not for my costumes per se, but I have for the skits!
Tell us a little about yourself
Born in '92 (you do the math), F, Leo, Monkey. I have two little brothers whom I love dearly and have them cosplay with me sometimes. I plan on having a Theatre major and a Business minor. I hope to become a great actress one day!
