What got you into cosplay?
Well, I've been sewing since I was 8 and I've always loved designing and costuming in theatre, so I thought cosplaying would be fun to do.
What was your first costume and why?
First costume I ever cosplayed was Twilight Princess's Zelda simply because I love challenges (though it's not much of a challenge, it's just tough to find time to complete it!!!!!)
What is your favorite costume and why?
Zelda because she's my favorite character in the LoZ series.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Yes, and I am currently making it! ^________^
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Go check out my gallery, particularly the Princess Zelda album and you'll see my MOST memorable cosplay experience ;)
Do you participate in masquerades?
Yes, I have participated in two masqs and they were just awesome! ^_^
What was your best masquerade experience?
The skit I did at ALA 07 was a lot of fun, even though we did everything like an hour before we masquerade! haha good times! XD
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
TP Zelda - "Best Craftsmanship Overall"
TP Zelda - "Most Humorous Performance"
Tell us a little about yourself
I moved to Orange County and I'll be attending school again for my last semester to get my AA. I love video games (Zelda, Final Fantasy, Fire Emblem, etc), theatre, movies, and kitties!
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
I am a SUPER busy girl? XD haha well I am constantly busy, but I love other things besides video games and costuming. I love comics, listening to orchestrated music (usually my inspiration to make an original design costume, but I don't ever post those), acting, singing, and raiding Fashion District! haha XD
