What got you into cosplay?
I was really into Final Fantasy since my sophomore year of high school. When I ran for homecoming court, I thought the regular "vote for me" signs were lame, so I put my face over a picture of different Final Fantasy girls. I thought to myself, "Hmm... I wonder if people actually ever make this stuff and wear it..."
When I saw people cosplaying online, I immediately started researching characters and upcoming anime cons.
What was your first costume and why?
Walmarket Tifa. Tifa has always been my favorite ff character, so I wanted to wear something of hers. I wasn't quite ready for her regular outfit... so I chose the rarely done Walmarket dress.
What is your favorite costume and why?
EVE. Eve has been my dream cosplay for years! Parasite Eve was my first Playstation/Square game and I instantly fell in love with the storyline.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
I already made it! It's Eve, from Parasite Eve. Now that I've done that though, I guess I have to pic a new one. I'll say... Gwendolyn's armor version.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
I was volunteering at MetroCon selling tickets. The doors to the registration booth had just opened when an otaku was screaming "TIFA! I LOVE YOU!" out the door.
Tell us a little about yourself
I love to draw. I've been doing it since Little Mermaid. Umm... studying for architecture... haven't had time to game for MONTHS. ;_; Ah... I remember those sweet Saturday mornings gaming so much I'd be starving by 11 AM because I forgot breakfast.
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
