What got you into cosplay?
I just saw a lot of people at AZ 2003 cosplaying and felt like it would be something fun to try to do.
What was your first costume and why?
Gackt Camui. I thought that I could pull off the look very well and although very few people knew who I was, those few people loved my costume.
What is your favorite costume and why?
I love all of mine for different reasons...it's hard to think of just one favorite.
Soubi - theatre skills put to work creating the "carving".
Kaoru Hitachiin - getting in character is WAY too much fun...
Spike - I just love the look...
Oak Labs - the quirkiness of the costume is great.
Envy - Oh, come on...what's not to like?
Yosuke - it's a comfy costume and I can have my iPod on me and it's still in costume. ^_^
Shuichi - Too much fun watching my friends faces when I yell "La-li-ho" at them.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Kintaro Oe from Golden Boy, complete with bicycle. I would absolutely love to do Anji Mito from Guilty Gear. Laharl from Disgaea and Adell from Disgaea 2.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Getting a hug from a lady on the AZ staff for my Soubi cosplay in 2007 and having an artist at AWA 08 beg for my picture as proof that a male Envy was walking around con.
Do you participate in masquerades?
Not as of yet, but hopefully, that will change.
Tell us a little about yourself
I'm currently in college studying Law, when I'm not in class, I'm usually playing video games or on City of Heroes fighting crime or causing mayhem...depending on the character.
