What got you into cosplay?
We were going to a con and I had loved looking at Cosplay photos here in Cosplay.com. I wanted to do that as well.
What was your first costume and why?
Hm... First costume I made was Chichiri from Fushigi Yuugi. I made it becuase I was going to Yaoi*con and it seemed very appropriate. I think I only wore it once after that. Have been meaning to remake it for years.
What is your favorite costume and why?
Wedding Seymour. Because that hair kicks butt and takes names.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
I just completed one of my dream costumes. So another one won't be for a while, but I want to make Anubis' armor from Ronin Warriors.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Getting the chance to work for FUNimation at SakuraCon 09
Do you participate in masquerades?
Yes. But I have terrible stage fright. I'm told you can't tell from how I act on stage, but I get so neverous.
What was your best masquerade experience?
My cosplay group took home our first group award. It was best Costumes at Anime Oasis, my favorite con, making us an award winning cosplay group. I've been working for this for a few years.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Yes. I have taken home best sleepwear for a bedtime version of Bulma and have taken home best costumes from AO '07.
Honorable mention at AO '08
Judges' choice at SakuraCon '08
Best intermediate craftsmanship at NDK '08
