What got you into cosplay?
In 1998, a Brazilian anime magazine made a special article about "cosplay" and published pictures of two cosplayers, Sandra Monte and Petra Leao. When I read it, I wanted to do one for me and my grandmother promised she would do one if I got into Medical School. And so... now I'm both cosplayer AND physician.
What was your first costume and why?
Ami Mizuno from Sailor Moon Sailor Stars. Erm... that costume has a lot of problems, but it's special because it's my first one and I got it after a lot of hard study. And it's my favorite character.
What is your favorite costume and why?
It WAS Kou Seiya from Sailor Moon Sailor Stars. Now is Ishida Uryuu (almost finished), from Bleach. After Seiya I noticed I liked crossplaying...
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Oooh, I do want to do Yurika Misumaru from Nadesico. :)
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
A girl coming at me and asking me my autograph as Seiya Kou! It was very strange for me.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Third place as Yui Ikari at JundComics 2000 and first place group award as Super Sailor Mercury with Sailor Team Brazilian cosplay group.
