What got you into cosplay?
Hearing about it from a friend, doing a sailor moon group for halloween (i was jupiter!). Then attending Otakon in 2000 cinched it.
What was your first costume and why?
First one i wore at a con was Yamato Ishida from Digimon Adventure. Cause I love Digimon and Yamato, and my best friends went as Koushiro and Taichi (at this point I do not remember whose idea this originally was)
What is your favorite costume and why?
my Mylene F. Jenius costume. It's comfy, it's well-done for me and my level of skill (or lack-there-of), i like the materials, I have the right body shape more or less, i like the look of the design, it's fun to wear, and she's one of my favorite characters from one of my favorite series.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
only a million. uhm >.<
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
I've had a lot of great memories with friends cosplaying with me. It might have been more about the friends I was with but it was still facilitated by cosplaying together. And I love having mutual admiration and respect with other random cosplayers.
Do you participate in masquerades?
