What got you into cosplay?
I'm afraid not much to tell here...at least sounding interesting...started Halloween of '05...and kind of expanded since
What was your first costume and why?
Lupin III. At the time combination budget and interest (that was actually what got me started...was poking around a thrift store and saw a row of jackets...first thought was "...Lupin!")
What is your favorite costume and why?
Of the two I've done so far (...yeah, not exactly diversified) I'd prob. have to go with Bright. It's a cool uniform, good character, and it gets extra points for the fact the Lupin outfit really starts getting pretty warm after a while.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
There's a lot of ideas I'd like to try at some point, but as of now, no major predominant idea on the list.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
As it stands, either seeing Richard Epcar get a kick out of the Lupin outfit, or seeing how many other Gundam fans were at AnimeBoston...either way, fun weekend
Do you participate in masquerades?
As of this point, haven't...in the future perhaps.
My favorite anime
Mobile Suit Z Gundam, Gundam 0080: War in the Pocket, Gundam 0079, G Gundam, Turn A Gundam (...seeing a pattern? good, cause it's about to stop), Now and Then, Here and There, Giant Robo: The Animation, Lupin III: Castle of Cagliostro, Aura Battler Dunbine, Laputa: Castle in the Sky, Patlabor, Berserk, and Fist of the North Star (...it's a guilty pleasure)
My favorite game(s)
Final Fantasy IV and VI, Super Robot Wars IV (...it hurts me throughout the second half of the game, but damned if I don't love the mecha selection,) D, Alpha, and OG, Chrono Trigger, the Silent Hill series, Dune 2000, Gundam vs Zeta Gundam, SD Gundam G Generation F, Katamari Damacy, Tetris, and Punchout (...it's a good vent)
My favorite book(s)
