What got you into cosplay?
Well lets see, I started cosplaying back in 2005 with my first convention Kumoricon. I dressed up as Edward from Cowboy Bebop and ever since that day. I've been creating bigger and more elaborate cosplays, winning my first award for my Berserker Paine in 2007. (Best in show :Jiraiya's new Jutsu(kumoricon 2007 and novice adult costume) After winning I just fell even more in love with cosplay. Because cosplaying to me, is an art form. For I create things with hands, and learn new techniques with every costume and with that it just excites me. But I think what got me caught up with cosplaying is, it brought me closer to my family. Because when I start a new costume, my parents are there to support me and even help me, so that I achieve the look I want.
What was your first costume and why?
Edward from cowboy bebop, I picked her cause I loved that she was so crazy and was the same age as me. Also who wouldn't want to cosplay as an awesome hacker. ^_^
What is your favorite costume and why?
Ohhh that's a hard question I love all my cosplays but if I had to pick one it would have to be my Big Sister just because it's my baby. It was the first time for me working with fiberglass and I thought I did a good job for a noob. XP
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Hmmmm Yah I have lots, it's just a challenge picking one to actually do, rather than finding one. XD
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Hmm wearing my Big Sister because I think I made every gamers nerds fantasy right then. lol Pretty much all my cosplay experiences have been loads of fun, so I can't really say one.
Do you participate in masquerades?
Yep yep, I've won many awards and just do it for the fun of performing with my cosplay group BangBangNeko.
What was your best masquerade experience?
When we did a parody of ymca but instead of Y_M_C_A we turned it into Y-A-O-I. We had all the fan girls screaming. As well as our newest skit involving the powerpuff girls Z and how to catch a predator. lol XD You can see where this is going.

Tell us a little about yourself
I go to an Arts school, major in M.I.A/Film. I love to make costumes, work with clay and other art medias. I love techno and listen to just about any kind of music. I'm starting to train myself in special effects makeup and prop work. I hoping to one day be a famous cosplay model or work in the film industry. Because film/movies are just a part of my childhood and self and there is no way I can part with it. It's just my life and what i'm very passionate about. Well that and cosplay that is. lol
I'm also a Glow dancer, and dance many different styles like hardcore, Glow hoop, Poi,jumpstyle and belly dance.
Cosplaying, movies, special effects make-up, video games, conventions, crafting, sewing, making props, steampunk, lolita, filming, hanging with my best buds, writing, traveling, meeting new people, drawing, clay work, shopping, designing creatures, modeling, and just being weird.
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
Nope just hope you enjoy looking at my gallery and please feel free to critique anything. I like to have constructive criticism, it's what makes you a better artist. Well that and lots of time and passion. ^-^
