About Me / Q&A

What got you into cosplay?
Various factors- On deviantArt, back in '06, I learnt of cosplay through some Jak and Daxter outfits I'd seen around. What prompted me to start doing it for myself was my love of costuming and acting. As a kid, my mum always used to offer to do the propwork for school plays, and I'd often help with painting and gluing... It all stemmed from there. Put that with my natural love of gaming and anime-- you've got a recipe for cosplay!
What was your first costume and why?
An AWFUL Axel cosplay. I really, really hate it now, but I still keep it... And I think, deep down on my scalp, underneath my hair, there's still a dot of red hair spray.
What is your favorite costume and why?
{...} from Hanna is Not a Boy's Name. I get to just chill out and look unimpressed when I wear the outfit-- it's really fun, as strange as that might sound. I'm a low-key kind of person a lot of the time so just being able to kick back and watch the world go by without being out-of-character was relieving.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Erol from Jak 2, Graverobber from Repo! The Genetic Opera... Lezard Valeth from Valkyrie Profile and the Count from Gankutsuou. Those're the main ones.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Top Ten; Christchurch Armageddon '07; Alphonse Elric. Highly Commended; Auckland Armageddon '09; Beelzemon -Blast Mode-
