What got you into cosplay?
My friends were doing it. And it seemed better than drugs.
What was your first costume and why?
I'd say Shampoo since she's what I wore to my first Anime Expo, but actually I used to dress up as Rydia when I was a little kid. I had a bright emerald-green sweater of my mom's that fit me as a tight dress, and a green cape that my mom made for me.
What is your favorite costume and why?
I don't think I have a favorite costume, just favorite pieces: my hooves and tail, my fused shadow, my Verse song wheel . . . remembered that I threw the wheel out because I had no place to store it . . . );
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Metal Gear Solid 4 Screaming Mantis.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Midna. And the aftermath.
Tell us a little about yourself
I'm an RN. I'm in a crazy accelerated school program and don't have time for anything. Happily married for three years.
My favorite anime
At one time I was completely obsessed with anime, but no more. Now I'm really just a gamer. But I will watch something if it's cool. I wouldn't mind re-watching Cowboy Bebop, Utena, Evangelion, Tenchi, and probably others that I can't think of right now.
My favorite game(s)
Dragon Quarter, Tactics Ogre, Xenogears, Ocarina of Time, Final Fantasies IV and VI, Chrono Trigger, Suikodens I and II, City of Heroes, Fallout 3, Oblivion, and many more. I play WoW too much . . .
