What got you into cosplay?
From the anime club at my college. I joined and the group planned on going to Katsucon so I thought I should dress up!
What was your first costume and why?
Tohma Seguchi because Gravitation was my most recent anime and favorite at the time. I am a big hat fan and there was Tohma with his. Plus, I loved his dubious good intentions, kinda good kinda bad nature.
What is your favorite costume and why?
Karou of the Hitachiin twins. I love Ouran and I make a wonderful twin if I do say so myself. I get to be mischievous and wear a school uniform, what could be better? Though lately I am really into Yamamoto from Hitman Reborn. I don't really know why, maybe because he has a sword and I like the way I look in the wig. Its a really easy outfit but just a fun series to be from.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
The green art book version of Abel Nightroad though I doubt I would ever be able to pull it off
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
I have had so many memorable experience. The midnight shoot D.Gray-man shoot at Katsucon 2008 was a lot of fun, truth or dare with exorcists and Noahs? Very memorable. Also AnimeUSA 2007 when I first joined my host club was amazing. So many people stopped us for pictures and I just loved it! We were actually chased by fangirls too... that was 'memorable.'
Do you participate in masquerades?
Not often but I have. They just take up so much time at a con that I tend to shy away from them.
Tell us a little about yourself
I am now a recent college grad in possession of a Bachelors degree in History. I am low in the money field now which tends to not be so hot for my cosplay life.
