What got you into cosplay?
I saw that all these people were doing really great costumes for cons and I thought, "I can do that, too!". So I'm giving it a shot!
What was your first costume and why?
My first costume was a terrible Kyo costume from Fruits Basket (Furuba). Why? Because I wanted to dress as SOMETHING for my frist Anime convention (AnimeNext 2005)
What is your favorite costume and why?
Amaterasu! It's a pain to wear, but I'm really proud of it...
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Alvis Hamilton (Last Exile), Sakura (Card Captor Sakura and also TRC), Enkidou (Gilgamesh), Mini Skirt Army Minion (Fullmetal Alchemist alchemist uniform w/ miniskirt), Ryuk (Death Note)...I have a lot of dreams, har har. My most recent love is Lavi/Rabi from D. Gray Man...I'm going to make that damn costume if it kills me! Oh, also Lucia from Venus Versus Virus. (I see an eye patch theme coming about...)
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Not yet, but one day, it'll happen! And on that day I will fill in this box.
Do you participate in masquerades?
I like to watch them ^_^
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
YES! My Amaterasu costume. Yaay.
