What got you into cosplay?
What was your first costume and why?
My first costume was Dr. Girlfriend from Venture Brothers and my boyfriend went as the Monarch. We choose these because we love the show and the characters. Plus we knew no one else was going to be dressed as them. I love thinking of a random cosplay that no one else thought to do.
What is your favorite costume and why?
I love the Rakka costume I made for my sister. It came out really well and looks great on her.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Yes, I have a bunch. But I would love to cosplay Ruto from Zelda: OoT and Ren from DearS. I'm also hopefully about to start on Rainbow Randolph from Death to Smoochy.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
All the attention me and my boyfriend got at AnimeNext '06. I was worried that we wouldn't be accepted well because we weren't from an anime, but everyone (who reconized us) said how great we were. Def made me love conventions that much more. And made me realized how nice people are.
Do you participate in masquerades?
No, I'm not really an actor.
Tell us a little about yourself
I am currently going to school for Theatrical Light Design. I hope to one day design lights for Broadway. But I would also like to do lights for live television events and maybe some concerts.
I have an older sister, two (twin) younger sisters, and a brother who's the youngest. My younger siblings love anime and are the reason I went to my first convention.
I have an amazing boyfriend of 3 years who also loves anime and cosplay.
I have a dog named Suki at home. I also have a mouse named DM, a tortoise named Spike, and a bearded dragon named Khan. My boyfriend has a cat who we just call Kitty who I consider my own as well.
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
I drive a 1990 Buick Lesabre. And I love it.
