About Me / Q&A

What got you into cosplay?
I've always liked costumes for movies and such...but it was a friend that got me into anime cosplay.
What was your first costume and why?
The first serious costume that I put together was an Indiana Jones costume. I have always been a fan of the Indy movies and had more than a passing interest in Archeology.
What is your favorite costume and why?
Probably my Captain Hans Gunsche from Hellsing Ultimate. I have put a lot into it trying to make it look like someone who also walked off of the history books. Captain Tylor was also a fun costume. I like costumes that either bring out something that you like in yourself or allows you to escape for a bit of who you are.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Yeah... might get around to it someday, but first I need to get in better shape.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
I think it was getting dressed up like Han Solo for the kids in the neighborhood. They got a real kick out of it and I was glad to make them smile. Another was walking into a 501st costuming panel and being startled as the whole room came to attention (I forgot that I was dressed as a Grand Admiral). ;-P
Do you participate in masquerades?
No, but if i found the right group i would in a heart beat. I used to act and I think I have a pretty passable singing voice.
What was your best masquerade experience?
None
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Nope
Tell us a little about yourself
I am a design engineer with a bachelors in Electrical Engineering and a Masters in Business. I do well for myself but I am chronically restless with where I am at in life. As for activities, I am into just about everything to some degree.
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
I am usually not what you think. I am into cosplay because I like costuming and I like meeting people from all over the world.
