What got you into cosplay?
My first journey to an anime convention, Project A-kon 11!!! I was just so amazed that people we walking around as anime and game characters! I wanted to join in ths fun so the next day i was wearing this hastily put together "ninja" outfit I'd worn to a theater party. Needless to say i probably had the worst costume that day, but i had fun just being apart of the whole thing. Plus, someone actually asked for my picture!! What a shock!!!! I vowed that day i would make better costumes and continue my new obsession! And here we are today! ^_^
What was your first costume and why?
Inuyasha was my first! It was an easy enough costume for me and my mom to construct (or first cosplay attempt) plus i just love Inuyasha's character! He's a toughy, but you know he's a softy!
What is your favorite costume and why?
It's a tie between Vash and Sumomo!! I love acting like both of them when in costume, and the reactions from the crowds at cons is great!! How else do you get people shouting "Love and Peace" and exercising for now reason?! ^_~
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
I'm sure I do, but I can't think of it now......... I'm sure I'll have one, someday..............
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
They're all good memories! So, I love them ALL!!
Do you participate in masquerades?
When i have a skit to perform with friends or by myself, sure! I don't think my costumes are up to just being paraded arcoss the stage. I'm still a beginner cosplayer!
What was your best masquerade experience?
My friends and I performing The Search for the Holy Sake Cup @ A-kon 14!!
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
2 so far!! One for Inuyasha, the other for Sumomo!
