What got you into cosplay?
I've wanted to start since I seen it years ago but never have had the chance nor enough friends to do so, plus the time involved to make a costume. :(
What was your first costume and why?
The Laughing Man from Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex 1st Gig. Reason was I've liked that series and that character. Not to the full extent like some cosplayers but enough to enjoy the anime and enough to put effort into my cosplay. It was more than worth doing and very fun actually.
What is your favorite costume and why?
So far it's been Tobi from Naruto Shippuuden. Easy as hell to make his mask plus he is a fun character to be.
Tobi's a good boy. :D
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Tons! I'd love to cosplay as adult Link from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time since it's my favorite of the series next to A Link To The Past. Also I'd wanna try my Laughing Man cosplay again but with the words spinning and making it more accurate to the anime. Others would be Naruto, Itachi, Deidara, Jiraiya and Pain from Naruto Shippuuden. (yes I like the show obviously :p )
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Cosplaying as The Laughing Man for AX08.
So many people on Day 1 stopped me to either take pics with me or of me and I kept hearing people saying "The Laughing Man"
I think I was the only one cosplaying as him there which made it better since I stood out. Too bad I didn't see anyone cosplaying as Motoko. :(
Do you participate in masquerades?
Not yet, one day though.
What was your best masquerade experience?
Watching it every year. :D
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Tell us a little about yourself
Rio Hondo College grad. Working more in the film industry now. Volunteering at cons and working towards being a pro camera operator as well as doing editing work. I have a family, no kids. If I had a job I'd probably like it cuz I'd be gettin' moneys. My hobbies including watching anime, cartoons, comedies, wrestling, reading manga, gambling, listening to tunes, watching stuff online, playing video games and comp games, chatting, and more stuff cuz it's too much to list on here. :p
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
I won't be the King of the Pirates nor the next Hokage but I will one day be the greatest Director to actually release a GOOD movie based on an anime or video game cuz so far all I see is crrrrrrrrrrrrrap. Dragonball: Evolution and Super Mario Bros the movie are the best examples of this. ><
