What got you into cosplay?
I found out there was a local convention from a friend, and decided to go. Initially I wasn't going to cosplay due to lack of faith in my sewing skill, but then I thought, I'd feel so out of place without a costume, and really, I wanted a chance to make a complete fool of myself with people I barely know.
What was your first costume and why?
Edward Elric. That was when FMA stole my heart completely and ran away with it. Why EDWARD?... One, because I love the character, two, because I LOVED his cloak, and three, .... because I'd probably match him in height. shaddup. =.=
What is your favorite costume and why?
Aeris Gainsborough, just because.
Well, also because so far it's my best constructed one, AND its functional as a real part of my wardrobe.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Not really, but I love making props that function like they do originally, or adding features to them to up the cool factor. harharhar
I made Aeris's default staff retractable at the ends so it was easier to haul around, and so it wouldn't hit people as much when I tend to suddenly spin around, AND I put in functional slots to 'equip' different materia. I actually /have/ materia of each type to put in it too. and now the materia all glow. =D [/dork]
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
To have a Zack for my Aeris. I think everything probably branches off from that. It's frightening.
Do you participate in masquerades?
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
I wish, but I don't ever take the initiative to sign myself up for any competition. Acknowledgement of my hard work and lots of pictures would suffice. =D
Tell us a little about yourself
I am a underfunded cosplaying dork. But then again, aren't we all?
