What got you into cosplay?
I was inspired by looking at friends' cosplay photos, and photos of other cosplayers in general. It just looked like so much fun that I decided to try it out for myself.
What was your first costume and why?
Shuichi Shindou's concert outfit (the one with the yellow coat). Gravitation was my favorite series at the time, with Shuichi being my favorite character.
What is your favorite costume and why?
I have more than one favorite for various reasons. I can't just pick one. :)
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
A FOnewearl from Phantasy Star Online.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
I have a few, but I don't have one that really stands out the most in my mind.
Do you participate in masquerades?
Not usually, unless I'm asked to participate in a skit.
What was your best masquerade experience?
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Tell us a little about yourself
My other hobbies aside from cosplaying include watching anime, reading manga, attending conventions, leaning about Japanese culture, playing video games, drawing, collecting, and shopping.
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
All of my costumes have been made by others, or were modified from store bought items. A huge thank you goes out there to all the commissioners for making my cosplay dreams a reality for me.
