What got you into cosplay?
I had been admiring cosplay for quite sometime and really wanted to check it out for myself. I've enjoyed it ever since I started! *hehe*
What was your first costume and why?
Kasumi from Dead or Alive 2 was my very first costume which I made for Sakura-con 2000. I had originally planned a different costume but that wasn't panning out. Anyway, my brother had just purchased Dead or Alive 2 for his Dreamcast as we enjoyed the first game very much(shudders to look back at it). Kasumi caught my interest right away because she had long hair just like I did(at the time) and her outfit was blue one of my favorite colors! Overall the costume was a bit sad because I really didn't have much sewing experience however it was a fun experience anyway ^^
What is your favorite costume and why?
Ash Crimson...because it just looks so hot! I'm want to date myself *lol*
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
I found a new dream costume...one of the Valkyrie's from Valkyrie Profile. I doubt I'll ever do so much armor again but if I did it would be a Valkyrie!
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
More like an embarassing moment XD and it of course happened in my first costume, Kasumi. I had ventured into the nearby mall to check on my parents...that was a really bad idea. I had one lady ask what the heck I was wearing as well as various odd stares but the best was yet to come. Still in search of my parents I happened to pass some young guys whom yelled out "Every dress should be cut like that!". I do believe everyone was staring at me at that moment. I was so embarassed I could feel myself turning red XD
Do you participate in masquerades?
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Tell us a little about yourself
I'm currently working at an assisted living facility where I serve old people breakfast and lunch. It just like my previous job but at a different facility. It seems I'm destined to server old people for all eternity *lol*. Other than that I have a wonderful Mother, A great Father, just one big Brother, some tropical fish, 2 cats and a dog(cats and dog are family pets). My brother has recently joined me on my cosplay ventures and if I can manage I'll get my dad to join us too *lol*. I try to keep my hobbies to minimum as it's hard to find time to juggle too many. I sew quite often, voice act sometimes, foley mixing too much, watch anime, read manga and fantasy books and watch the occasional movie. I enjoy nature and being outside very much and I love to be warm! Hmm...anything else...well I'm sure there is and if I remember them I'll be sure to add them ;p
