What got you into cosplay?
My friend Pete invited me to go along on his trip to Otakon 2007 and since I've been wanting to try cosplay, I decided I'd give it a shot.
What was your first costume and why?
I picked Squall from Final Fantasy VIII since I figured it'd be cheap to assemble (no wig and relatively normal clothing) and he is one of my favorite characters. The reality is that I wanted to carve my gunblade from wood myself and since the timeframe wasn't looking so good I turned to my other favorite, Dark from D. N. Angel. He is just an amazing character that I believe doesn't receive the just attention he deserves. My only issue is rocking purple hair but without sacrifice, no great thing can ever be accomplished.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
The list could go on for days. Needless to say, though, is that one day I hope to have an entire collection of Final Fantasy VIII outfits.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
I met a girl at my first con through our friends each doing a yu-gi-oh! character. In fact, thats the whole reason the two of us went to talk to that group of girls. Who would have known that we both would have found people we like so randomly.
Tell us a little about yourself
I play Magic: the Gathering like it's my job. I love almost everything about the game. My favorite color in and out of the game is green, anything green except for that nasty brown-green. It's just my mom and I and we both work almost constantly. My dream is to be able to play Magic competitively or design my own video game. Either fits my criteria for an awesome life.

D. N. Angel, Maburaho, Outlaw Star, Eva (a must in my opinion)
