What was your first costume and why?
Kenshin - as part of a set of Kenshin & Kaoru. I'd been costuming for years, but hadn't done media recreations before. And I happened at the time to have red hair and a short, dark-haired friend. If no actual knowledge about kimono. (Fixed that part.)
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
The list is too long.. and I'm already making half of them. I don't care about how elaborate a costume is - I don't think that complicated necessarily means good. So long as it's an outfit I love, that's what's most important.
Do you participate in masquerades?
Only as part of a group when someone else can be the brains of the operation.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
A number of craftsmanship awards.
