What got you into cosplay?
I was planning to go to my first Anime convention in 2005. I felt like I wouldn't fit in unless I had a costume (pratically, everyone wore one!). So I made my very first costume and did my first cosplay at Anime North. I had a blast and wanted to do more! :D
What was your first costume and why?
Kagome's school uniform cuz it was easy. My sewing skills weren't the best at that time.
What is your favorite costume and why?
Sakura from Tsubasa because it was the most time consuming costume I have made ;__; Plus its fun to wear a big poofy dress =)
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Oh geez~ There are so many, I think they are all do-able, but it requires a lot of time and patience (as well as money!).
Do you participate in masquerades?
Started competing in 2011 =)
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
*Anime North 2006 Hall Costume Award
*Anime North 2008 Hall Costume Award
*Richmond Hill Cosplay Competition 2011 - First Prize
*Con-G 2012 Hall Costume Award
*Anime North 2012 Masquerade - Most Accurate Journeyman (Workmanship); Best Journeyman (Presentation)
