About Me / Q&A
What got you into cosplay?
I saw some incredibles cosplay and I thought that I wanted to try it. I was sewing some of my clothes before and cosplay allows me to be more creative.
What was your first costume and why?
Well, at that time I didn't know what was cosplaying, but I did Mario Bros on an Halloween party. The first real cosplay I have done is Tohru from Fruits Basket. And then, with my hair changing, I decided that Tohru should become Motoko.
What is your favorite costume and why?
Riza Hawkeye because I tried to do all the details. Half of this cosplay is hand-sew. I'm quite proud that one guy asked me where I've bought it 'cause he was sure it was an ebay costume.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Suu from Clover. Those wings are so impressive. I really want to do it but first, I have to find a way to do the wings correctly.
Other than that, Scarlett O'Hara from the movie Gone with the wind. One day, I want to make the exact replic of what she wears.
Do you participate in masquerades?
I've been in my first masquerade at Anime North 2006 and it was great. Now, I try to plan a bit more my skit performance.
And when I'm not doing the masquerade, I'm either judging it or I'm the masquerade director.
What was your best masquerade experience?
At Anime North 2007. The fangirls were screaming so loud, it was fantastic. I liked dancing on the stage with my Riza miniskirt version.
Also, Anime North 2008 when we came back in the greenroom and people where yelling so loud!! I had a blast!

Tell us a little about yourself
I'm working as an occupationnal therapist in a small private clinic in Montreal. I love my job because I have the chance to see a lot of people everyday. I'm also a glider pilot, so I go and fly whenever I have the time/money. I love the whole feeling about soaring in the air.
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
Cosplayer advice : There will be many time that you'll feel like you can't do it anymore, that it's too hard. But don't forget, the point of cosplaying is having fun. If you don't have fun while doing it, take a short break to clear your thoughts.
