What got you into cosplay?
I got into cosplay because...um...I don't really remember...I think I just liked dressing up as the characters..
What was your first costume and why?
I tried really really hard to talk my ex-boyfriend into Cosplaying, and when I finally did that, I had to talk him into cosplaying as Squall. Unfortunately, for the days that I was going to go with him to the Expo, I didn't know what to Cosplay, so I asked. And he said, "Well...I'm going as Squall..." "I get it, you want me to go as Rinoa, right?" "If you want. It would only make sense."
What is your favorite costume and why?
Rogue from X-men Legacy. It's a comfortable costume, aside from the boots.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Lulu from FFX. I was going to go as Lulu for AX04, but then I broke up with my girlfriend. I'm determined to make the costume eventually. Those belts are just so bloody daunting.
Re-L Mayer from Ergo Proxy is another ambition.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
There is just something so endearing about hearing a little girl scream "Look, Mommy! It's Princess Leia!! We have to get a picture!!"
There was also this one time when I was in the ladies' room at Wondercon and I was fixing my Leia buns when a little girl said, "Doesn't she look pretty, Mommy? She looks like a cartoon..."
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
The closest thing to an award I've ever gotten was at a cosplay contest at Suncoast. I was dressed up as Advent Children Tifa and I won a $25 gift card.
