What got you into cosplay?
Always fancied the thought, Halloween rocks and cosplaying is like Halloween with other that dress and try to act the part as well! I love making costumes as well, figuring little things out and creating-right up my alley!
What was your first costume and why?
Izumi Curtis, well first NDK it was a last minuet decision to go on one day. I was debating, Sauske or Izumi, both would be relatively easy to throw together last minuet... I went with Izumi, favorite character form FMA, the strong noble opinionated mean but ever so golden hearted scary woman.
What is your favorite costume and why?
Abel Nightroad. Both the Krusnik 80% and the Artbook style. I really love the Character and the more I find out the more I'm in love with the series as well. I have fun dazzling people with my Moving wings and lol even had fun dazzling myself the first time I saw it all together!
Its nice being able to be in a costume be kinda yourself and fun relax and cheery and yet still surprisingly be in character. I love the costume very much. I've put so many hours into it and STILL am.... Very proud!
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Howl.... howl when he's got his human face and the rest of him is just feathers...that...would be AWESOME! @-@ and Al's suit of Armour!
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
fist con I was at I had the crappy thrown together last minuet Izumi costume. I poked and tease other Edwards but no one knew even had the slightest inkling of who I was. suddenly...*CLING* someone is grasping onto my arm and hiding behind me, I see a red coat stop in frount of me looking at the person who's clinging to me. I loook back and there is an Edward Elric Cosplayer who stares wide eyed at me
"Ah heh heh Sensei....hello..."
I look back to the one clinging tome who looks up looking ever so excellent, a perfect wrath "Mommy, Edward's being mean."
from that point on I gained two great friends and they dragged me oh so willing into the world of cosplay!
THIS..... IS .... SPOD
Do you participate in masquerades?
yes.... my first was on the Nokia stage at AX 2008. I went on as Abel Nightroad when he was just a teenager and danced with my Friend Shokora and Cloaked.
I was so scared I nearly puked and fainted but in the end it turned out GREAT! I was pretty proud of myself.
Dude... Ted! We're on the Nokia stage! you know what that means? EXCELENT!!!!
What was your best masquerade experience?
thus far... well I had to admit that I'm TERRIFIED of the stage and apparently enjoy putting myself and my poor Friends through the torchure of me on stage and the fanatics that happen before and after. so and enjoyable one? hopefully will be on my last Masquerade experience.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
yes, My Friend Neeban and Deb really encouraged me to go for the costume construction contest "You'll do fine! it'll be fun!" they said convincing me and then they added "it's the hardest contest" and I Was running out of the room in fear! But wow so many nice people and competitors LOL I Got to meet Spookenloops! ^^* that made my day and she patched up my costume too! oh ah anyhow I got Second place in my very first costume contest-pretty shocked over it still...and proud of myself.

Tell us a little about yourself
I am a full time otaku who's trying to beat and batter her body into being slimmer and toned, I'm already strong enough to throw Edward around in my Izumi costume "ohhoho!"I'm a cake decorator for a super market. I love my job but it pays worse then the Vatican I swear.
Photography is my passion and My dear Kimu got me a Camera so watch out! you might get dragged away for a random photoshoot[or just ask I'd be happy to!]
