What got you into cosplay?
When I was little I loved dressing up for halloween. Then I went to a star wars movie in costume. Though in the summer of '06 I really started getting interested because now I have a group of friends to cosplay with.
What was your first costume and why?
My first one was padme which I wore to see episode 2. Though my Iruka was the first one I put some serios time into.
What is your favorite costume and why?
I love my Iruka costume. It is so comfortable and really fun to wear. Plus you don't see to many Irukas running around.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Not really though I would like to do something girly, though it hard to do that when you cosplay with a bunch of guys.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
I think had to be when I was wearing my Iruka Costume at Anime USA, and I was talking to a guy who was their with his friend (b/c I'm not sure of their actual status) and her daughter. At one point the guy actually said to me he was having problems looking at me when we talk. He said that my scare was bothering because it looked so real. I thought that was a great compliment and really funny at the same time.

I just finished college and had to start working full time. I thought school was bad though I would take it over working full time. I got both my brother and boyfriend into cosplay, it is some much fun to cosplay with them. Out side of coplaying, playing video game, reading manga, and watching anime I also like to; ski, go to the movies, bake, and go shopping.
