What got you into cosplay?
I was bedridden from spinal surgery in the summer of 2004, and being left to only do things that involved me lying down or sitting in a big cushy chair, I started sewing a costume. It was a bad, bad costume, but it was the beginning of an obsession.
What was your first costume and why?
My first costume was Yoko Kurama, mainly because YYH was the first anime I was truly passionate about. (Besides Yu-Gi-Oh, of course, but I didn't think I could dress up like one of them...)
What is your favorite costume and why?
My favorite costume so far has to be my Mew Berry costume; It was a pain in the ass to sew, but it was fun to wear and looked adorable.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Every Rhode Kamelot outfit, honestly. That, and a lot of others listed under planned costumes.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Doing it right after back surgery at NDK 2004. I was scared I'd die. Even though I was exhausted and my back was achy after the fact...
It was pretty awesome. XD
Do you participate in masquerades?
Yes, despite the fact that it scares me half to death.
What was your best masquerade experience?
I didn't throw up when I went onstage. That capped the success for me.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Tell us a little about yourself
I'm a senior in high school who knits compulsively and can never keep her hands still. I fold paper stars a lot, do needlepoint, sew (obviously), quilt, and draw. Writing stories is another of my passions, and I am currently working on a novel that I hope to finish sometime before I die.
