What got you into cosplay?
My love for anime mixed with being a theatre person growing up, and costuming .
What was your first costume and why?
First anime costume? Sailor Sun..my own special made-up character in 7th grade. It was a really badly made costume but I gave it my best shot.
What is your favorite costume and why?
My suzaku no miko costume..I never cosplayed it because I chopped my hair and desparately needed money for sakuracon...So I sold it. It's ok though because I don't like wigs, Miaka isn't my favorite character in the world and my hair is STILL short..It was made 2 years ago. However, it was a beautiful costume. I really enjoyed cosplaying lum too.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Birdy from birdy the mighty. I plan to do it someday but it'll be a very interesting and expensive costume to do..She has like 3 hair colors O_O
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
well...Theres been quite a few odd, funny, and memorabel moments. Nothign liek walkign around Baltimore in a mai costume, or through the campus where Aniem Evolution was held in it....wow >_>
Most recently, I had a grand time throwing together a ninja costuem with my roomate. We then tried, and failed to kidnap a friend ninja style.
Do you participate in masquerades?
I have once. I was a catgirl nurse :-) We didn't win- but I still had a lot of fun.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
nope...BUT DAMNIT I WILL!!! My kei costume(and my roomates Yuri costume) were too difficult, stressful and bad ass to not win awards. They will be perfect by sakuracon 05....and I will be sure to have them noticed. We didn't just sew...we tailored them perfectly to our bodies, and ...omg.STRESSFUL.
Tell us a little about yourself
I am an 18 year old, soon to be college kid living with my bf of 3 years and best pal Stephie. My life has just changed a lot in the last few months due to my dad taking a job in Mexico, but I don't mind so much. Change keeps life interesting and exciting. I enjoy meeting people, drinkign coffee, staying up late, goign out on weekends, dancing, singing, modeling, watching movies, anime(obviosuly...>_>() ), internet,forum b.s-ing, the art of makeup, arcades, music (punk,industrial,oldies,J or K-pop/rock,classical & celtic,hip hop and ol' Jazz) as well as many other random things liek swimming & soccer.
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
I love meeting new, nice people so feel free to email me! ( I'm usually busy if looged on aim but it's still worth a try so "hey" me...
My favorite anime
Tokyo Mew Mew, Himiko-den, Kenshin, Ranma 1/2, Chobits, Ceres, Hellsing....the list goes on...I am currently watching: Angel Tales, Sailor Moon S, Initial D,Steel Angel Kurumi & Ai Yori Aoshi again with Stephie. Angel tales sucks ass so far but Steel Angel is pretty good ^_^
My favorite game(s)

My favorite book(s)
Anything that teaches me something and keeps me interested. SO basically any history or science book that is written in english that I can comprehend. I don't enjoy novels usually because I don't feel like I'm getting anything out of them really. I am currently reading: I can't remember the full title, but it's about the 1960s. It is explaining about the war, the politics, the styles, the attitudes, the causes and effects...It's really good so far.
My favorite character(s)
Touga from Revolutionary Girl Utena...Cuz he's sexy...Tooya, Aki and Yuuhi from Ceres are sexy too...
but yes, personality wise..I think Saitou from kenshin and Ichigo Momiya from Tokyo mew mew are my two favs...I know...they are totally opposite characters but..I still adore them both.
My favorite movies(s)
Road trip, Not another teen movie, Robin hood men in tights, and Die Another Day because there are sexy asians in it, and swords. woot!
My favorite actors/actresses
Carey Elwes ( fav since 2nd grade) and for now I'll just say cameron diaz. She's a hottie potatoe...I mean potattie.
