What got you into cosplay?
I've always loved sewing, videogames, and designing things so when I was half forced into making Lulu I was okay with it, but after my first con I was immediately hooked :)
What was your first costume and why?
Lulu from final fantasy X. I was actually half forced into it, but I din't really care too much since I love intracate things as is is. But @$%*$!, what a pain in the ass! (Especially for a first cosplay.)
What is your favorite costume and why?
Currently, I think I'd have to say Lenali's 2nd uniform. the pleather makes it a bit tough to wear in any extreme weather, but even so I really love wearing it. c: It compliments my body type more than most my costumes (which is definitely saying something.) Its also suprisingly durable and because the pleather is a bit stretchy it doesnt hinder my range of movement :3 Which is really nice after so many DO NOT BEND OVER MORE THAN THIS MUCH-esque cosplays haha.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
D8 OMG!!! YES! I hope I'll be able to make some of them soon. Magna Carta: Tears of Blood Reith, Chobits Chii, FFXII Wedding Ashe, FFIX Dagger/Garnet, FFXIII Lightning, Gundam Stellar and many others that require a sufforcating amount of fabric, notions and munnies xD;;
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Being told that it's awsome to see me walking around as Kairi because, "'OMG! She -does- exist' 8D" My inner-me sqeed to no end :'3
Do you participate in masquerades?
Recently yeah, they used to scare me being onstage in front of so many people but Im starting to like them more c:
What was your best masquerade experience?
Winning an award on my first masq. ;u;
Have you won any awards for your costumes?

Tell us a little about yourself
I'm part of GAACP (God Awful Awsome Cosplay) and The Yukuta Yakuza, am currently trying to con-er ask if they'd like to make a live action on an anime or game video -w- It's my current dream! Other than that, I'm a freshman at WVCC, this past Spring I was an intern at Stanford for their Future Faces of Fashion program. I love drawing, reading, cosplay (obviously) and sewing in general. I only have a yellow lab, a little cat (she's the runt~ haha), a bunny and two turtles. I'm currently hoping to find ~some~ kind of job soon to support this lovely (and oh so expensive) hobby.
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
I'm a horrible procrastinator that tends to promise to do too many cosplays with people XD;; In '08 alone I made 6 cosplays for one con! ;w; I really need to stop doing that.. One day I really want to be able to make awsome armor and props. Cosplaying Fran may be a test of that. But first! Weight loss. Lots of wieght loss. x-x I'm not very comfortable with my body.
