What got you into cosplay?
I have always loved costumes and it made me sad that I could only wear costumes during halloween. When I began wearing them around the house instead of regular clothes my parents sighed and ignored the problem. too bad, because now i make more costumes then i have room to store. Not to mention all my fabric storage and base patterns to draft from. hehehe.
What was your first costume and why?
A gosh aweful version of Queen Serenity, followed by an even worse version of Tenten. Neither of which I like a talk about.
First costume at an actual convention? Kimono Zelda.
What is your favorite costume and why?
Well, I have to say Yuuko's riding habit has taken over the favorite spot...hehehe.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
White Queen Esther, artbook style!
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Well there was this time I was proposed to by like twleve people all at once...
Do you participate in masquerades?
What was your best masquerade experience?
well, I think I would have to say ALA 2010. I was with great friends, the Masq. was run very smoothly and we even came out with awards.
I think NDK 2008 is a close second though. I was beside myself with joy when I won best masters craftsmanship and Best in Show overall...when I had entered expecting to get nothing. Yeah, I was thrilled!
