What got you into cosplay?
My friend invited me to San Diego Comic-Con 2005, and that's where it all began.
What was your first costume and why?
Wolfwood. It was mostly stuff I had in my closet, the prop was a fun project for my dad and me, and I was super into Trigun at the time!
What is your favorite costume and why?
Luciola. I love Last Exile and he was one of my favorite characters! That and his character design is really awesome.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Hmmmm! The ones I dream about doing are all ones that are wayyy not my body type (busty women + manly men, hahaha)
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Meeting all my friends.
Do you participate in masquerades?
