What got you into cosplay?
When I went to my first con (Akon) I saw someone cosplaying Sailor Venus. I wanted to look that awesome too, so I started cosplaying the next year.
What was your first costume and why?
Vanilla Gackt, because it was simple and even -I- couldn't screw it up... but I totally did anyway.
What is your favorite costume and why?
My Kyo costume. It's the one costume I took time on and didn't scrimp on the details. I liked it so much I wore it twice. I showed it to Kyo himself and he said "Wow, that's a blast from the past." I lolled.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Ashura from FFIV, functional magitek armor(OH, THE SHENANIGANS). >B
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
While cosplaying as TAKEswiy at a NOIZ live, the real TAKEswiy had me come up on stage with other cosplayers and we all did a stupid dance together. 8D
Do you participate in masquerades?
I used to really be into masquerades but now I think they really EAT your Saturday at a con and I'd rather hang out with friends. I like Hall Cosplay, though!
What was your best masquerade experience?
I dunno about best but a memorable masquerade would be when I fell down a flight of stairs in Harajuku while dressed as Tara for the Undercode Halloween Ball in 2004.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Judges Award, Ohayocon 2001 (Gackt)
Judges Award, Tekkoshocon 2003 (LeBlanc)
