What got you into cosplay?
Just the idea of going to a convention and not having anything to wear and since it was my first convention I didn't want to feel out of place.
What was your first costume and why?
Well I started cosplaying at Otakon as one of my own characters from an anime story I was working on because I had little time to put a costume together. The name of character was Markus. The story is based off of Magic the Gathering, but you actually summon the creators to life with mana that are cast from your lands that you play. You have energy shields around you at 200 hp and when the creators/ monsters attack, they are real. Meaning when the shield collaspe and there is extra damage still to be dealt, it'll hit you as well.
What is your favorite costume and why?
I have to say right now InuYasha, however Kabuto is now right behind it. InuYasha because I feel that I can really play his character well. And not to metion the reactions at the conventions when a Kagome yells sit and the next thing you hear is this thud and they look over and it was me hitting the floor. InuYasha is a popular character and wanted people to look at more of the costumes I was wearing.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
I really don't have one.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
My most memorable moment was when I was at Anime Festival Orlando and I was in the masquerades and Kagome when she got ticked off pushed me to the edge of the stage and yelled "Sit". I feel face first off the stage and the audience you heard "OOOOHHhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!" The judges are like while your skit was okay I have to give you points for putting yourself through pain. (I mean I do fall hard but I know how to brace myself so it doesn't hurt that much.)
Do you participate in masquerades?
I have a few times, and would like to do more in the future.
What was your best masquerade experience?
My best experience was "It's Called A Poke'mon". I was cosplaying Kabuto Yakushi and I performed a smmoning jutsu. I summoned a legendary Poke'mon. The skit is on youtube from Anime USA.
