What got you into cosplay?
Anime Club in high school. I found out about it and thought it would be pretty cool, then I started seeing them more common online and decided to do it at an anime convention (Zenkaikon in 2009)
What was your first costume and why?
Misa Amane from Death Note- because I was poor and didn't have the skills or time to make my own, I improvised.
What is your favorite costume and why?
So far, Skarlet from Mortal Kombat. It was the first cosplay I made by myself with my very first sewing machine and when I finished I felt so proud of myself I almost cried. Lol.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
I'd like to make something with plaster and bloody goop. Like the Silent Hill nurses or pyramid head. I've always wanted to do a big project like that.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
My first time going to New York Comic con. It was amazing, stressful, amazing again, and exhausting. I got to cosplay Skarlet from Mortal Kombat, and Dark Phoenix from X-Men. I was so surprised that people recognized my Skarlet and since it was the first full costume I ever made I took a lot of pride in showing it off and receiving positive feedback.
