What got you into cosplay?
My friends. <3 I've always wanted to do it! I looked at pictures online all the time and wondered if one day I could do the same.
What was your first costume and why?
Hm, very first? That would be my failure for a Sally costume. I made it in one night for school spirit week when we were supposed to be movie characters. The dress looked nothing like her's. It was just a jumble of fabric scraps sewn together with stitches drawn on my body. I ended up remaking for Halloween at work (2005). Still sucked (can't sit in it) but it's the actual dress now. my wig was horrible too. Some cheap party city thing.
What is your favorite costume and why?
It's a tie between The Sweet Card and Quina... The Sweet was just so different! I had never made anything like it before. Quina turned out AMAZING, but I hated wearing it. (Blind/super hot)
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Yes! Ursula's costume from the Broadway shows. Oh man, what an undertaking THAT would be! I'm trying to finish the original Disney variant first, but I would love to attempt that stage beast one day.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
AnimeFEST 2010. I met a ton of new friends and just had the greatest time ever! FRIENDSHIPCON
Do you participate in masquerades?
Contest wise, I've done three walk-ons and two skits.
Tell us a little about yourself
Hobby wise I'm into SFX make up and photography.
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
I can never stay serious or in character, so most of my pictures end up with me laughing/making my grumpy face. I like to be loud and obnoxious, but only with my circle of friends. I tend to act a little quieter if I don't know people too well.
