What is your favorite costume and why?
My best favorite of my own cosplay is Hugue from Trinity Blood and Bishamon from Zone-00. I like Hijikata from Hakuouki, too.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Huge object props that lights up.
And...i would love to be able to make Tokiko san's prop @ Burou Renkin.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
They are all tied:
Ani-Magic 2006 & 2009, Anime Los Angeles 2009, Otakon 2009, Niseiweek 2008 & 2009
Do you participate in masquerades?
As much as I can because I love to perform rather than to pose in front of cam.
What was your best masquerade experience?
My best masq. experience was at Ani-Magic 2006, when I saw Vic Mignogna and Christphe in person and talked to them first time in my life. And Otakon 09.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
As cosplay unit "Takeriya Samurai", we have won awards and they are listed under our costume list pages.
Tell us a little about yourself
Actually, I am Japanese came to US from Tokyo. So, English is my second language and that is making me very shy...(Pretty basic isn't it?)
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
I belong to Cosplay Duo Unit "Takeriya Samurai."
z_mikarin (me) and Takeriya_Hagi.
z_mikarin makes most of the costumes and cosplay with Takeriya_Hagi. And mostly we cosplay Trinity Blood stuff.
So two of us share the same costumes in the lists but we make sure that our galleries won't have same exact photos all the time.
