What got you into cosplay?
I've been an anime fan for a while now and went to my first anime convention in 2005 (AWA). I had the best time but I felt left out of all the costuming fun, so I knew the next time I wanted to cosplay too! The next year I did just that and cons are WAY more fun in costume! It's addicting!
What was your first costume and why?
My first costume was Kairi's pink dress from Kingdom Hearts II. Kairi isn't my favorite character by any means but I absolutely loved her dress and I wanted to try and pull it off. It was fun but I don't think I did her character any justice. Especially with so many OUTSTANDING Kairis around.
What is your favorite costume and why?
Well out of my TWO so far...I think I like Fuu best. I just think I fit her character better than Kairi's. I love the kimono and Fuu's personality! It's a bit hot for warm months but luckily we are just heading into winter. :)
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
YES...Helga from Trinity Blood. I would LOVE that costume but the whole task seems impossible right now. More attainable costumes right now would be an Ouran Host Club member and Xigbar I think :)
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
AWA12 - I met the most amazing people and had an awesome mini group to be a part of!
