What got you into cosplay?
I've always been a big fan of costuming, for halloween especially as well as theater, or for any excuse, really! I have also been a huge anime fan since the early eighties, back before it was "anime"....even before it was "japanimation"! So of course when cosplay became popular in the US it was a natural step. ^_^
What was your first costume and why?
Team Rocket! In college my (now) boyfriend and I were really into Pokemon. His haircut and color were exactly like James! So for Halloween that year we made what I would consider our first official cosplay, Jesse and James Team Rocket. Then it all snowballed from there...
What is your favorite costume and why?
The most recent always seems to be my favorite. But I like all the costumes I've made and I'm always excited to make more.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
I don't know if it's my "dream costume" but I am always toying with the idea of making Blade Warriors JuJu-Ran. Maybe one day.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Single handedly coordinating and running the cosplay for Collossalcon 2. What a nightmare.
Do you participate in masquerades?
Sometimes, when it's not a waste of time to register and sit through all the prep.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Hallway Winner Ohayocon 07
Tell us a little about yourself
I am 29. A children's librarian- the most fun job in the world! I am also an illustrator and I just finished illustrating my first full picture book. I also do a comic (sometimes) with my brother about a little girl who has a pet zombie. I spend my time with my boyfriend playing video games, doing art projects, planning Good Dinner Day, and of course, working on our cosplay.
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
No, I don't care for math, thank you.
