What got you into cosplay?
My hands and feet.
What was your first costume and why?
Nabeshin. The thrift store at college had clothes that made a piss-poor version of an already simple costume
What is your favorite costume and why?
Riot, without a doubt. It's so flashy and colorful, which is the opposite of what I tend to usually do. All that make-up, and the big poofy wig, and that ruffled shirt with yellow jacket... I feel pretty
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Don't we all?
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Doing a photoshoot as Riot with my favorite cosplayer Fire Lily as Jem at Katsucon 2014.
Do you participate in masquerades?
I did one time. It was alright, not really into the competition game.
What was your best masquerade experience?
Somehow getting a judge's award
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Judge's award for Manfred von Karma at A&G 2008.
