What got you into cosplay?
A burning desire to be just like Rinoa. xD;
Lame I know, but I apperantly used to look shockingly like her, so I decided if we looked alike, we might as well DRESS alike too!
What was your first costume and why?
For the same reason as above.
What is your favorite costume and why?
Fire Nation Toph! I have so much fun in this cosplay. I get to be sassy and it's awesome.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Tyrael from the Diablo series. I LOVE his character and his armor is freaking amazing.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
World Cosplay Summit in Nagoya! Walking in the Osu Cosplay Parade and being surrounded by people with cameras! It was surreal! I totally felt like I was surrounded by paparazzi!
Do you participate in masquerades?
No. My costuming skills are no where near the skill I would require to enter a masquerade. Maybe some day, but not at this time.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
I won first place in the local convention "HadouCon" with my Fire Nation Toph cosplay.
Tell us a little about yourself
I'm 27, have a twin sister and am a HUGE Blizzard Games fangirl.
I'm slowly trying to improve my skills and push my limits because I want to get more exposure for heavier set gals who cosplay.
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
I spent a year in Japan and OMG was it cool. I really found myself while I was there and I changed a lot. It really helped me realize what is important to myself. I really encourage anyone who is interested to pick up and GO. You may learn a lot about yourself. You may not, but it's always a good experience to get out and discover new things.
