What got you into cosplay?
Decided to go to my first convention and wanted to dress up. I stopped for a while for personal reasons, but I recently decided it's something I love and wanted to start doing again.
What was your first costume and why?
Quistis from Final Fantasy VIII. It was my favorite game at the time, and she was my favorite character.
What is your favorite costume and why?
My Vanille cosplay from FFXIII because I love that character and I feel it is one of my best cosplays.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Fran from FFXII and Ashe's wedding dress from FFXII.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
My most memorable experience was in my Vanille cosplay. I was walking around Anime Expo and the English voice actress for Vanille stopped me and asked for my photo.
Do you participate in masquerades?
I have twice now, but I have never won anything.
What was your best masquerade experience?
Just meeting nice people backstage.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
My costumes have, but not any of the costumes I have worn. A costume I made for a friend won Judge's Choice at a con.
