What got you into cosplay?
I had been wanting to do it since 2005, but when I got invited to cosplay with some friends at the time I jumped at the chance.
What was your first costume and why?
Time Jump Temari. I wanted to cosplay with friends and they cosplayed from Naruto (despite how much I didn't like the show). So the only character I liked was Temari and I just went ahead and cosplayed her from Shippuuden.
What is your favorite costume and why?
By far Aqua has been my best experience yet. While a lot of what I had to do for the costume I had to draw out and plan myself, it was definitely worth it.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Kanna from AIR TV. She has a gorgeous outfit as Kannabi no Mikoto (the one before she sets out to find her mother) and I would love to make it. Another dream costume(s) would be to do every Sailor Moon outfit, but I want to lose more weight before I even attempt it.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
I have a lot of me outside of cosplay, but I guess people asking for pictures of me in Aqua. It's an amazing feeling when people want pictures of you. Even better was at the rave when I was out of cosplay and since no one at Mecha were really dancing at the rave and I did, people wanted pictures of that, too! It was tons of fun!
Do you participate in masquerades?
Not yet, but I want to soon!
Tell us a little about yourself
I'm in university close to home. I have a large family, even though my parents divorced. And I have a wonderful boyfriend who wants to get into cosplay, too.
I have a few friends, most of which are/were into anime or JRock/JPop. A few of them cosplay and few will eventually cosplay. I also have a lot of friends outside of cosplay that are awesome to hang out with and I feel at ease with when I'm outside of the anime part of my life.
My hobbies include drawing, writing, singing, dancing, role-playing, playing video games, listening to music, hanging out with family and friends, and, of course, cosplaying.
I also have another account here that I used while I was part B.RC, Seki_chan. Please feel free to check it out.
