What got you into cosplay?
I suppose airsofting really, always had a good laugh at fancy dress and always seemed to put more time, effort and planning into it than most of my friends, then one day as I was researching a HUNK costume for a themed Resident Evil airsoft game someone pointed me in the direction of this site. Kind of went from there.
What was your first costume and why?
I think my Stargate SG1 stuff, it originally started off as an airsoft loadout and went from there I guess.
What is your favorite costume and why?
I would say my Pip Bernadotte cosplay, it took ages and a lot of effort but I really like how it turned out. Or my Chris Redfield cosplay as I love the minigun!
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
A Terran marine/firebat from Starcraft 2 now that would be EPIC!
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
The dancing zombie skit at the London MCM Expo, was much fun!
Do you participate in masquerades?
Yes, I tend to enter at a lot of cons I attend, its really good fun as I like the competitive element as well as getting the chance to chat to other cosplayers.
What was your best masquerade experience?
'Breaking' a friends neck as HUNK on stage at the May MCM London Expo May '08 or mowing down zombies dancing to Thriller with a minigun at MCM London Expo May '10!
