What got you into cosplay?
My absolute love of dressing up and wanting to be Sailor Moon. Halloween has always been my favorite holiday, therefore cosplay has become some torrid love affair now. I hate all the time and money it takes, but adore the outcome more than anything.
What was your first costume and why?
Mime, because FFT is one of my favorite games. However, I was sixteen, it was two days before AX05 ended, I didn't know a thing about sewing/cosplay and my mom and I just kinda threw it together. It wasn't too bad,but I'd definitely like to remake it someday.
What is your favorite costume and why?
X-23. Chris Yost and Craig Kyle loved it. Kyle actually hunted me down for a picture. Apparently I was the first one they had ever seen. They even signed my claws!
And Billy Tan went nuts and told me how cool I looked and knew it was from the second miniseries THAT HE DIDN'T EVEN WORK ON. AMAZING.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Sailor Saturn/Pluto/Jupiter, Pixie (Megan Gwynn), Kitty Pryde, Amy Pond's wedding dress, Rose Tyler (The Empty Child/The Doctor Dances), Ninjette
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
See "Favorite Costume"
Do you participate in masquerades?
Once. Maybe I'll do it again in the future. We'll see.
What was your best masquerade experience?
ALA 08, it's my only one so far but it was fun.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Nope, but the whole Kyle/Yost thing has had me on Cloud 9 for years.
Tell us a little about yourself
I go to San Francisco State University where I am majoring in Women's/Gender Studies. I live in thrift stores and am constantly thinking about new cosplays. I love drawing/painting and listening to music and reading whatever I can get my hands on.
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
I'm a pretty nice kid, if you ever see me at a con or gathering, say "hi".
