What got you into cosplay?
I've always been a nerd and love dressing up for Hallowe'en, and Cosplay is pretty much Hallowe'en anytime you want it to be. =D Except without the ghosts, and the witches and the scary pumpkin faces... But seeing other people cosplay and how awesome they looked pretty much started a huge snowball that has been getting bigger for the past 3 years, and I now have about a million Cosplays I want to do... Y_Y
What was your first costume and why?
It was actually, funnily enough, a Hallowe'en costume. A high-school friend had a fancy dress party, and me being the idiot I am, thought that I'd be able to make Vincent Valentine in a month. Well, I succeeded, but it did pretty much fail, and thus destroyed the remaining respect that my friends had for me. =D Yush. Though I still put it up as a costume on here so... Check it out if you want a giggle.
What is your favorite costume and why?
CLOUD FREAKIN' STRIFE!
A year it took!
And it was well worth it!
I love that costume like it was my child!
Also, Merlin! For it's unbelievable comfy-ness and ability to freak the living s***e out of Colin Morgan 8D.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Oh god... Where do I start. Let's see here: I would like to completely remake Vincent Valentine, with pleather, all forms of Cloud Strife and I really want to make a proper Pokemon cosplay like Blastoise. But huge, not gjinka.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Wandering aroung Manchester dressed as Haruhi Suzumiya was interesting. And I got to see Dir En Grey that day so it's definately memorable. ^__^
Do you participate in masquerades?
I have participated in one as Merlin at the MCM Expo London May 2010.
What was your best masquerade experience?
I got a large cheer.
I was happy ^_^
