What got you into cosplay?
I was kinda "forced" into the activity by my friends who were really into Naruto. After they talked me into the activity I was hooked.
What was your first costume and why?
Kakashi from Naruto. Just cause my friends wanted to do a Naruto group so badly and for some reason I got sucked into it.
What is your favorite costume and why?
It's gotta be Brock from Pokemon. I've been told since middle school that I bear a strong resemblence to the character. Other than that there's Hanto from the internet anime series XIN that I voice.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Right now I so want to be Kamiyama from Cromartie High School. I so want to get a group together and take a picture of us walking down a hall in the same way they did in the intro.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
During JTAF 2005 when I was Brock some dude in line yelled out "Hey it's Ash!" and the rest of the attende's just looked at him funny.
Do you participate in masquerades?
Once on a whim. Will do more when I work up enough courage.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Not really. I lack the proper skills (sewing being on) to be a really kick butt cosplayer so I choose simple costumes that I can pull off on account I look like the character.
Tell us a little about yourself
Well I'm a martial arts fan but I lack any formal training due to my limited budget. From what I've notice my "style" is a mixture of Kung-Fu, Tae Kwan Do and some Wu Shu but I don't consider myself as a real fighter.
I love to dance and play DDR. Recently I've made a name on myself in the DDR scene by taking third at my first tournament and getting noticed by all the old school players.
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
I'm trying to become a professional voice actor and I do work over the net. You can find my stuff over at the www.voiceacting.co.uk or at www.lifepoint1.com
