What got you into cosplay?
Uh...probably just seeing really cool costumes done by my friends, my fellow convention-goers, and random people on the internet.
What was your first costume and why?
Ace of Spades...because it looked devastatingly cruel and intelligent.
What is your favorite costume and why?
The Musketeer from Granado Espada. I feel like a rockstar when I wear it.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
My best experience would have to be PortConMaine 2009 and 2010.
Do you participate in masquerades?
Yeah, but I've never done a skit...I'm currently working on that...
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
