What got you into cosplay?
My sisters did; after the first year that they did it, I joined in.
What was your first costume and why?
Cammy from Street Fighter, because she was my favorite character and I would always play her! ^-^
What is your favorite costume and why?
Right now, it's my Alpha Cammy costume, because I hand-sewed the ENTIRE thing-- including the gloves. It was my labor of love and I think that it turned out FANTASTIC! ^^ Also, having my sister team up with me as a 'black' Chun-Li was a definate plus!
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Samus Aran from Metroid
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
ACEN 2K3, because I bumped into the Animation Director for Sailor Moon R, and she wanted to get a picture of me in my SM costume; and after that honor I got her to sign something ^-^V
Do you participate in masquerades?
What was your best masquerade experience?
Winning awards for our skit in four out of the 7 years we've participated in.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
yes, in a sense, we received the awards for both costumes and skits.
Tell us a little about yourself
I am currently a junior in College, pursuing an English major at the U of I. I live out in the country in the tiniest town imaginable, but the fresh air is nice and the room and ability to keep our horses right in our "backyard," is certainly a plus. My hobbies include cosplaying, obviously, drawing, riding, singing, and playing videogames. I have my two glorious sisters, SailorGaia and SailorSenmurv, who both cosplay with me and are the best friends imaginable!!
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
I would really like to better myself as a cosplayer, so please any CONSTRUCTIVE criticism is really appreciated, and any suggestions as well! ^^
