What got you into cosplay?
To be honest, it was just an outlet for my dream outfits. It was a way to challenge myself, reaching beyond conventional fabrication methods to really make something special.
What was your first costume and why?
My first was a huge black and red original gown with three tiers of flounces and loads of lace and ribbon. We had been too lazy (or maybe unexperienced) to buy a hoop skirt so we tried to make our own underskirt by using miles of super stiff crinoline. It worked for a little while but the weight of the skirt was too much and after an hour or two, the skirt looked wilted. Ick! Definitely retired.
What is your favorite costume and why?
Lastest wedding gown.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Something fun, nothing so serious. If I ever get my hands on another readily accessible model, i'd love to put into play my design for a naughty lolita styled Alice in Wonderland.
If not, my dream may come to pass sooner rather than later. I am almost done planning my own cosplay for once. It will be Tier 2 Bloodfang from the World of Warcraft game complete with epic warglaives. We'll see <3
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Oh wow... this year at AN (2005-6) we took first for the fashion show in women's costumes, two hall cosplay awards and scored some photoshoots with everyone from local stylists and MUA's.
Do you participate in masquerades?
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Hall cosplay, people's choice, workmanship, best female costume, third place in Fashion! TV judged show
