What got you into cosplay?
My dad teaches high school. One of his students knew I liked anime, and she told me all about cons and cosplay. She then asked me to be a part of her Sailor Moon Animates group. I didn't really know what to expect...and when I got there and random people I didn't even know wanted to take my picture...let's just say the attention whore in me spoke up and took charge. It's like a wonderful drug.
What was your first costume and why?
Sailor Iron mouse, because I was only in 8th grade and thus the smallest of the group. (not that i've grown much, haha)
What is your favorite costume and why?
Rydia. I love parading around pretending to be her because when I was little I thought she was the coolest ever. Well, who am I kidding? She STILL is the coolest ever.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Right now I'd love to make a Tima costume from Metropolis, with all her gadgets hanging out of her.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
When me, my brother, and my best friend won best of show at ikasucon. COMPLETELY UNEXPECTED. Especially since we made up our skit the night before and relied on pure wit to get us trough XD Performing onstage was so much fun, but when they announced that we had won...we almost wet our pants. Er, costumes.
Do you participate in masquerades?
only one so far...but I plan to in the future.
What was your best masquerade experience?
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Best of show: Ikasucon 2006
Hallway award: Ohayocon 2007
Tell us a little about yourself
Right now I'm training to be a starving artist. I am forking 20k+ into art school so I can graduate and live in a cardboard box.
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
I live at home because I love the 'burbs. All I ever do is sleep. I have two fat Russian cats.
