What got you into cosplay?
My first anime convention.
What was your first costume and why?
Android 18, because at the time DBZ was my anime. It was what got me started, and I love 18, she is awesome.
What is your favorite costume and why?
I haven;t done a lot of cosplaying yet, but, probably my first one since I put it all together myself, hastily, and all out of common items. It was fun.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Well, while I have no skills at making costumes, I would like to have a commissioned costume sometime from Kirarin Revolution for the song "Papan Cake". At least for now, that is my biggest wish. I am currently working on doing one for "Koi Kana" from the same anime.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
"Hey, shouldn't that skirt be shorter" LOL. I dunno that line just stuck in my head once when I dressed in a schoolgirl (yes a short skirt version). The random things you hear I guess. (No I am not the type that finds it offensive either).
Do you participate in masquerades?
No, at least I have yet to.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
No....I am very shy and I am now making this because I hope to take my cosplaying to the next level and actually do photo shoots and stuff, so really I have only ever cosplayed for the sake of going to a convention.
Tell us a little about yourself
I am disabled, and I think that is part if what made me want to push this more. I have a heart disease called ARVD, so I figured I better do something with my time here. I do have a family, I have 4 kids, 3 boys and one girl, and my oldest has cosplayed a few times with me. (He love to dress as Sora from Kingdom Hearts, and one year I went as Kairi too just to be able to cosplay with him). I like video games and anime, music, and other than that not many things interest me.
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
I am currently learning Japanese, though I think I am doing horrible lol.
While I love Kirarin Revolution, part of what makes me want to cosplay it even more is my daughter (who is almost 2) LOVES Koharu Kusumi, and there have been several times that if I was going to listen to music, it was her or nothing or my daughter would be highly upset.
