What got you into cosplay?
I went to Anime Expo '06 and I didn't think I'd ever go again, so I figured I'd go out with a bang.
What was your first costume and why?
Naked Snake from MGS3. I just wanted to go as someone cool.
What is your favorite costume and why?
Big Boss. Because I have yet to see someone do the character in his later years. I think I have the market cornered on this one.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Geez, the better question is which one would I choose?
Kenshiro from Fist of The North Star
GaoGaiGar from the anime of the same name
Solidus Snake from MGS2
Raoh from Fist of The North Star
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Shaking hands with Hideo Kojima at the Peacewalker signing in L.A. in 2010 while dressed as Big Boss. There's a photo of it on the costume's page.
Do you participate in masquerades?
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
