What got you into cosplay?
My halloween cosplay of Sailor Venus with a whole bunch of my friends, but definately attending my first con and seeing all the amazing costumes there got me hooked. ^_^
What was your first costume and why?
Sailor Venus for Halloween. Sailor Moon was one of my first animes that I watched knowing it was anime so it is very near and dear to my heart. My friends and I dressed up as a bunch of the senshi and had a blast running around that night singing the theme song on the top of our lungs. ^_^ Even though looking back on it, it wasn't my most accurate costume, it was still my first step in the world of cosplay. And what a journey it has been so far...
What is your favorite costume and why?
Hm, my favorite right now would be my Tima from Metropolis cosplay. It is certainly my most technical cosplay to date and I'm very proud of how it turned out!
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Eowyn's Shieldmaiden dress from LOTR and Enma Ai's kimono from Jigoku Shoujo.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Most memorable...I think getting lots of compliments for my Tima cosplay. I almost got dragged into the Masquerade that year. It's really enjoyable to see people excited about your costume. ^_^ Oh and mistaken gender during crossplay is always an amusing compliment. ^_^;
Do you participate in masquerades?
Not yet, but someday!
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
Thanks to all my friends and family who have gotten me this far!
