What got you into cosplay?
I wanted to be part of the Masquerade at SDCC '01 because I didn't have anything else to participate in at the convetion.
What was your first costume and why?
Yuna from FFX =D. I chose her because (at the time) I thought we had the same hair and I adored her costume.
What is your favorite costume and why?
I don't really have a favorite anymore... the sorta accumulate like fungi and then you just forget...
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Femto. OMG... Femto. *o* <insert drools here> And pre-rape Caska!
and Flower-bomb Ayu.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
SDCC '01 masquerade infront of 4500 people. I think not knowing what to expect made my preformance something I'll never be able to repeat again.
Do you participate in masquerades?
Not really, I'm not really that competative, and I also don't think my costumes are good enough to win anything. But I always try to participate at SDCC cause the masquerade coordinator is a very good friend.
What was your best masquerade experience?
SDCC '01 & SDCC'07
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Yes, 6 I think? I won 2 awards (non-trophy) at SDCC'01, I won a preformance award at Ani-Magic '01, Best in Show: Crasftmenship at Anime Expo 2002, Best Design at PMX '04, and Judge's Choice and SDCC '07. PHEW, I really had to think about that because they're so damn irrelevent.
Tell us a little about yourself
Currently going to school, I live alone with my two cats. I take random commissions and work in the costume department of a local theatre "The Old Globe Theater". I love monkeys, I'm an anthropology major with plans to go into the sub-field of paleoanthropology with focus on human evolution.
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
I'm a big huge dork and I cosplay people because I like them. I'm obsessed with BSG, I love Ayu. TOOL is the greatest rock band ever. Also, I spoked gooder than a lots, dude.
