What got you into cosplay?
I always wanted to dress up as a few of my favorite anime characters, no matter how challenging or time consuming. It's one of my unique talents. I tedn to go as characters that are a contrast to myself as a whole.
What was your first costume and why?
From Yu-gioh, Seto Kaiba with the battle city attire (white trench coat) was my first because I loved the character. I loved how the trench coat billowed out gave him that extra flare.
What is your favorite costume and why?
By all means by favorite costume would be Vegeta because I love feeling important and being that character. The guy has such a high self esteem and everyone I have come across loves the character to death.
Some others are the high priest, Seto costume *ancient incarnation of Seto Kaiba* because I love the egyptain attire that he wore in the Ancient Egyptian Arc. It was challenging to make, but is indeed a eye catcher.
My other favorite one is Demyx IX from Organization XIII from Kingdom Hearts because I love the character so much and I love all the hugs and glomps I get from being him complete with the sitar I made on my own.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Maybe some sort of female warrior angel. She would be my own creation.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Having hundreds of anime fans take snapshots of the costumes that I wear and performing live on stage in masquerades of acts that I make up out of the blue. I have a very creative imagination.
Do you participate in masquerades?
Yes, I performed as Seto Kaiba in 2004 and High Priest Seto in 2005, (both for Anime Expo) and Demyx in 2009 and Vegeta in 2010 (both for Yaoi Con.)
What was your best masquerade experience?
All my performances were special to me in different ways, but the one that got the most cheers and applause that I had the most fun with was my 2010 performance as Vegeta with the DBZ abridged audio and interesting dance I did.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Yes, I won runner up for best individual perfomance as Seto Kaiba in 2004.
