What got you into cosplay?
There are quite a few characters that I admire and I just wanted to step into their shoes for a day.
What was your first costume and why?
Angel from Big O, because it looked simple. (LOL.) I really like Angel: she's cute but tough and doesn't act like a damsel in distress, despite the fact that Roger Smith is pretty damn hot. ;)
What is your favorite costume and why?
My favorite costume to date has been Varric Tethras. Everyone loves Varric and he's a complete ham. I love him to death and his outfit's amazing. Also, Bianca.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
I've always wanted to dress up as a Samurai Yagudo from Final Fantasy XI. Also, I really, really want to attempt Angel's pink catsuit from the end of Big O.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
My Dragon Age II group decided to crash the Bioware Base at SDCC 2011. Each of us won an award for our craftmanship. And Bioware treated us like VIPs for the weekend. It was a costumer's dream come true, really.
Do you participate in masquerades?
I have not participated in a masquerade. I'm a little intimidated by the skit work, honestly.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Bianca won Best Weaponry at the Bioware Costume Contest at SDCC 2011.
