What got you into cosplay?
When I was 14 my friend told me to dress as Lara Croft for Halloween. Later on I found a website that had Lara Croft look-a-like competitions, so I entered, and slowly found out about cosplay.
What was your first costume and why?
Lara Croft from the video game Tomb Raider; Lara's always been a hero for me personally.
What is your favorite costume and why?
Deffinetly my Lara Croft costume(s), I've put so much sweat and blood and love into all of them ESPECIALLY the traditional outfit! It's taken me 4 years to finally 'finish' it to the point where I'm satisfied with it!
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
I've always wanted to make the Antartica outfit from Tomb Raider III, along with the bomber jacket from Tomb Raider II.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Deffinetly Katsucon 8! It was my first real convention, and I went with a HUGE group of friends, and it was just a wonderful experience!
Do you participate in masquerades?
Not yet, but I hope to soon!
What was your best masquerade experience?
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
I've won Lara Croft look-a-like competitions. But I've never entered them into judging for cons, if that's what you're wondering :-P

I just became a certified ACO (Animal Control Officer); Yes, like the animal cops you see on Animal Planet, haha! I love photography SO much, it's in my blood.
