What got you into cosplay?
They have mini-cons around where I live, and I went to one and loved it, but I didn't cosplay. The next time I went I DID cosplay, and enjoyed it so much I'm never going to go to one not in costume again!
What was your first costume and why?
Android 18 from Dragonball Z. I needed a relatively simple costume to make, as I only had a month to do it in, and it turned out really well!
What is your favorite costume and why?
Probably Android 18. While I can't get used to being blonde, it was my first costume, and I'm very attached to it.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Rem from Death Note, and be able to pull if off really well. I want it to be that good it'll scare the living daylights out of any kids I see on the way to the convention. Moving wings would be brilliant too.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
The first mini-con I went to. The boy who won wasnt even in costume - he just entered for the free manga, claimed to be 'emo Cloud Strife' and won. He was a crowd pleaser. I'd have been so pissed off if I had spent forever making a costume to enter and have someone like that win.
Do you participate in masquerades?
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Not yet. I don't mind not winning if the people who beat me deserve to win, and they haven't just bought their costumes from eBay.
Tell us a little about yourself
I'm in my final year at the University of Plymouth studying Computing. I'm a pretty creative person, so I write alot and make costumes for various things (with me, it's any excuse to wear a costume somewhere!).
