What got you into cosplay?
It all started with a bet. I started watching anime about 2 months before Brisnova and then I decided that dressing up as the characters would have to be pretty fun. And a friend made a bet with me that I wouldn’t do it. And O-ho-ho Yes I did~ . I cosplayed the oh so un-known ‘Un-named Akatsuki Member’ And after then I thought it was so much fun. That I had to do it again. And So I did. I guess I just really liked the attention, and creative expression along with the fact that It was letting me bring some small degree of justice to under-cosplayed characters.
What was your first costume and why?
Konan, from Naruto
Because back then she was the 'Un-named Female Akatsuki Member' and I just had to do it, because there were only two pictures in the manga and i really wanted to be one of the first to cosplay her, other then that, it may have been because she was a girl, and i bought the cloak off ebay and got the hat in the city from some cheap china town shop =D.
What is your favorite costume and why?
I would say... The one that I am making now, which I cannot reveal untill the end of August, its beautiful. and will be using alot of material and it has all these decorations and stuff. It's going to be awesome
