What got you into cosplay?
Sailor Moon and Kingdom Hearts.When I was looking for a Kairi costume on the internet,I saw photographs of people dress up as Anime and video game characters I recognize. Then I learned it was called cosplay so I decided to do this too. I always wanted to cosplay popular female characters I like such as Kairi(Kingdom Hearts) and Sakura(Naruto).
What was your first costume and why?
My first costume was Sailor Moon because I loved watching that show when I was young.
What is your favorite costume and why?
C.C.'s Black Knights dress because I've been getting a lot of compliments on my costume and my Cheese-kun plush toy.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Gunner Yuna from Final Fantasy X-2 cuz I like the sideskirt,halter top,and tiny bee guns.I also want to cosplay Sakuya Haibara from Fatal Frame 4:Mask of the Lunar Eclipse cuz I like her beautiful red kimono.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
My most memorable cosplay experience was at the OnnaFest 2005.That was the first time I got to meet other cosplayers like me.
During my visit to AnimeNEXT 07 con, I was soooo thrilled and excited when I encountered(reunited) my cosplayer friend Otakupony, from this site (She was Sakura from Naruto again as she was in MangaNEXT 07 and I was Sakura from Naruto: Shipuuden).
During my visit to Anime Expo 08 convention for the first time, I met my cosplayer friend JRyoga(from this website) in person. I was so lucky to meet my fav voice actors Steve Blum and Crispin Freeman. I even got a pic with Crispin and me and autographs from them both. I was in the Vampire Knight photoshoot and it was fun to meet other VK fans like me. I had the most wonderful time at the convention this summer 2008.
In my first trip to Otakon 09, I was reunited with JRyoga again, enjoyed the Code Geass group photoshoot, went to my fav voice actor/actress's (Crispin Freeman and Mary Elizabeth McGlynn) Q&A panel and got their autographs, and Kanon Wakeshima concert and got her autograph as well.
Do you participate in masquerades?
I haven't had the chance yet. But I have gone to the events dressed in character.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Nope not yet. But one day I will participate in the next convention once I make a costume instead of buying one.
Tell us a little about yourself
I am a high school graduate living with my parents who support me in my cosplay. The hobbies that I like to do is make cosplay costumes and props at home and spending time with my family. I hope that I would learn how to sew costumes soon. What I hate the most is being bored at home >_<!!!
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
I would like to meet other people and make new friends who are interested in the same things I am: Anime,Cosplaying,J-pop and J-rock and meeting fav voice actors.
