What got you into cosplay?
I love to dress up in costumes. For this reason, Halloween is my favorite holiday.
What was your first costume and why?
For Halloween, my first real costume was a mime. *BE AFRAID* This was only because I needed a costume that could be made in a month.
For conventions, my first costume was Sakura in her Hong Kong Shopping Dress from Card Captor Sakura: The First Movie.
What is your favorite costume and why?
So far, it has to be my Alice costume from American McGee's Alice. I just loved being a murderous story character. ^_^;;;;
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
I always wanted a costume with angel wings.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
My first Anime costume was Card Captor Sakura in her winter school uniform. It was poorly made and just a tad bit too small. However, everyone thought it was cute. The only problem I really had with it was when I wore it in the Halloween parade. BIG mistake!! Not only was the wind blowing its hardest, but the temperature was also 20 degrees! For wearing a small skirt, I was certainly freezing to death!
Do you participate in masquerades?
I've been in several so far....
What was your best masquerade experience?
Swiffer.....yes.... (Otakon '06)
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Tell us a little about yourself
I LOVE all types of animation, especially Anime/Manga! I also like to draw, listen to any type of music, get on the Internet, create stories, and read.
I live in the middle of nowhere, PA in an Anti-Anime family. I only know of two other people where I live that love Anime. Luckily, one of them is my best friend.
