What got you into cosplay?
Friends who did it, and my love of costumes.
What was your first costume and why?
Cloud, from FF7. I did it because it had been my brother's halloween costume, and I wanted something easy for Fanime 2006. It was a really crappy costume.
What is your favorite costume and why?
My inquisitor costume! It's fun to wear, I love the fandom, and no one else ever cosplays it.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
A fully power-armored inquisitor and a female commissar.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Having people shout "for the Emperor!" or "Ave Imperator!" when I walked down the halls of con.
Do you participate in masquerades?
No. Even if my costume was good enough, I have stage fright.
Tell us a little about yourself
I'm currently in college, studying to be an archaeologist. I draw, paint, do ballet, and read extensively on the side, in addition to costuming.

I play computer games more than is healthy, and I have an encyclopedia-like knowledge of the Imperium in Warhammer 40K.
