What got you into cosplay?
Actually, I really don't remember. I think a friend dragged me to the Metrocon site back in '04 and got me to go. We ended up creating a cosplay the day of and doing it. I thought it was a blast, and now I can't stop!
What was your first costume and why?
I first cosplayed Rabi~en~Rose from Di Gi Charat purely because I thought it was pretty. Turned out to be a pain in the butt to make. XD
What is your favorite costume and why?
Any Miyavi costume, purely because they fit my personality oh so well!
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Hmmm, I don't know. If I could possibly get a wig or straighten my hair, I want to do Illuminati Kami from Malice Mizer. If I can't do that, I want to do some more Miyavi ones, anything I can get my hands on!
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
I was sitting in the Metrocon 2006 dealer's room watching some Jrock PVs when a girl sitting next to me looked up from what she was doing and jumped backwars about 5 inches in her chair. Turns out she actually thought that Miyavi was sitting next to her!
Other than that, I have quite a bit. ^-^ Apparently someone saw me from across the lobby and just stopped where she was and stared because she thought I was Mivvers, too. XDD <3 <3
Do you participate in masquerades?
Nah, I'd look stupid. XD
.. Oh wait, by masquerade do you mean skits? Oh, ALL THE TIME, then! I thought you meant like, masquerade balls! XD
What was your best masquerade experience?
Oh, a few friends and I came up with a skit for Metrocon '05 called "Metrocon's Next Top Model." It was Mana (of Malice Mizer) versus Columbia (RHPS) We finished, got amazing applause from the audience, got a STANDING OV, and... didn't win.
But, the next day, during the costume contest, someone at the end of my row stood up at a very dull contestant who wasn't even posing, and yelled," BOO! GIVE US METROCON'S NEXT TOP MODELS!" I cracked up!
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Once at a small con for a joint catgirl/owner costume with a friend of mine. We got a DVD. XD
