What got you into cosplay?
I ran across a convention accidentally and saw pictures from the previous year. It was really great and everyone looked like they had so much fun. I decided that I wanted to join in on that fun!
What was your first costume and why?
My very first cosplay was Yuna from Final Fantasy 10. It's been said that you should cosplay someone you can look like easily. That's just what I did. I had just finished the game, loved it, and really adored the outfit. It was difficult, and I sewed the entire thing by hand, yet I still see it today as one of my best accomplishments. Odd how that works isn't it?
What is your favorite costume and why?
Previously, my Kyo costume was the coolest. But now the Gackt costume I will be wearing at Anime Fest '07. I can't wait!
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Yes and no. I'm too fickle to have one for long. Also, my size keeps me from doing most costumes. I would love to be the sexy Midna from Zelda: Twilight Princess. But I'll have to lose at least 60lbs first.
Also Lulu from Final Fantasy 10. I've been collecting belts for a year.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Being "attacked" by japanese girls at A-kon 17 who had flown over to see Penicillin in concert. I was dressed as Hakuei, the lead singer and they started squealing^^ Plus any convention to spend with my best friends Jessi and Erin.
Do you participate in masquerades?
Once, but I really have more fun wihtout the skits. As soon as I finish Agitha and Zora Armor Link, I'm going to make my boyfriend get up on stage with me, but we won't do a skit.
What was your best masquerade experience?
Only had the one. Terrified, got out, sang and left.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Not really. I never really enter any of them. I really should start.
Tell us a little about yourself

The green panda stole my parasol and went to Malaysia.
