About Me / Q&A

What got you into cosplay?
I'd done some ghetto-type cosplay in high school, but didn't want to spend the time to actually sew anything. I did a really lame Kiyone from Tenchi Universe (mom sewed the shirt) with a cheap wig; fortunately, no photos survive that. Back when I was still desperately trying to be a redhead, I borrowed a friend's hakama pants and shirt and was Battousai. Nothing too special. What has gotten me into it now was attending my first convention; Anime Detour 2006. I enjoyed it so much, I wanted to keep up with it.
What was your first costume and why?
I don't include my two high school ones because I wasn't into it at that moment. My first is my initial, cheap costume satin version of Princess Venus from Sailor Moon One of my friends online wanted to get a group together for Anime Detour, and I figured I could actually make it out (from California!) if I got a flight voucher. Venus was the only one left on the list I thought I could pull off, so I signed up for her.
What is your favorite costume and why?
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Myu Pluto. But that isn't for a LONG while, i.e. when I have a little more experience under my cosplaying belt. My current dream that's actually becoming a reality is to do a Lia/D'eon costume pair with my younger brother. We look enough alike and enough like the characters to really pull it off, IMO
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Riding the roller coasters at Mall of America in formal Princess Venus gown.
