What got you into cosplay?
The first thing that really got me into cosplay was when my sister and I attended mini-con 1. It was after work, we couldn't stay very long, and we were so young we didn't drive ourselves, our dad took us. There was SUCH amazing and inspiring cosplay. A Vash the Stampede and Lulu from FFX among the most amazing. Upon seeing them I even bought a Trigun ring off ebay even though I never wanted to cosplay Vash.. but I wanted to cosplay ever since and have because we weren't able to dress up at all for that convention and it was only one day.
What was your first costume and why?
My first shameful costume was actually Inu Yasha. My sis and I bought a Kagome and Inu Yasha costume off ebay, neither had wigs or shoes or anything, not that Inu Yasha has shoes. Believe it or not, the show had JUST started airing or was going to air on Adult Swim. Had someone I know help with the Inu hair which was a HUGE lump of fake fur and we just looked AWFUL but had SO MUCH MORE FUN in costume!
What is your favorite costume and why?
Right now I have two favorite cosplays. One is Law from One Piece. I don't care if he's over done. I made the hoodie and hat myself, mocked up the jeans, and honestly LOVE wearing him. I'd like to make the sword so it could be longer and the right length but I did it for my sis who cosplays Kidd. Wartime Luffy is my other favorite because NOBODY likes the yellow vest, red pants version and it's my FAVORITE one to wear. SO COMFY and I really love the colors.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
I have a few in mind that I either lack the skill to make, or lack the weightloss required not to embarrass myself.
-Time Skip Usopp = One Piece
-Wizardmon = Digimon 01 (some day...)
-Luffy from the One Piece Gold movie
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
THIS IS HARD. I have a lot of them, mostly ones that involve getting to see cosplay idols, getting to take pictures with friends, meeting voice actors I've gushed over, and getting to be a retard in cosplay which is more than I could ask for *u*
Do you participate in masquerades?
As much as it would be an amazing ego boost to place or be noticed in the cosplay I make, no I don't enter. Nothing I make ever looks exceptionally professional enough to compete. Maybe one day?
What was your best masquerade experience?
I did participate in one cosplay type contest, didn't win shit but upon looking back I know why but it was memorable because I didn't notice I had swung my sword back and beaned someone in the head. OOPS
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
No because I haven't ever really entered. I just like to cosplay for fun, but I do want to look the very best I can *A*
Tell us a little about yourself
I have a little college experience, not too much family, a job I can live with FOR NOW but planning to find something much better when my sis and I move, and my hobbies would include ART and comics, sewing, cosplaying, and attending as much conventions as I can. I'm also an avid copic collecter/user, and One Piece fan and transformers junkie. I LOVE COMICS and I love to talk comics ;u;
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
Just hoping that if I keep practicing with sewing that I'll get better. I'm hoping to dip into the prop making pool, maybe just baby steps so I can lean to make a few things, maybe hair wefting in wigs! I am really REALLY awful with wigs I feel
