What got you into cosplay?
I've loved watching anime and playing video games since I was young. I remember in 6th grade when I was running home to school to watch Cardcaptor Sakura on Kids WB. XD Oh how horrible the dub was... and in my middle school years I heard about this "cosplaying", but I failed the sewing part of Family Consumer Science classes...but I love the idea of being someone else for a day! And gives you an excuse to dress in a costume other than Halloween!
Also, as you may notice, that I tend to make costumes, wear them once, and retire them. I'm sooo bad with that because I'm really picky, and I'm constantly improving my skills with sewing. Usually it doesn't fit right, I didn't like it, or something. XD I'm really bad with that.
What was your first costume and why?
My first costume was wearing Chun Li in 7th grade for Halloween. I'm a Street Fighter fan, and she's the greatest. The costume WASN'T too great though... XD
But otherwise to a con it's been my Setsuna Muduo costume with those giant feather wings. They've been reconstructed a couple of times, but they are awesome <3
What is your favorite costume and why?
DOMO KUN. XD i love it, and everyone else loves it.
even though its super hot and i die inside.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
TONS of dream costumes... right now it's a full 4-way stretch vinyl of rei's plugsuit with the lance. :3
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
tons of memorable experiences... probably as domo kun. i got ALOT of attention, someone asked if i was a weird spongebob. XD
Do you participate in masquerades?
Yes, but lately, not so much.
It's become very competitive lately and a lot of the contestants are very dramatic about not winning.
It's all in good fun, people! X3
What was your best masquerade experience?
Winning the first masquerade at the first Anime Detour as my first award! I was beyond shocked. XD
