What got you into cosplay?
my love of anime and manga, of course ( o Ao)/
What was your first costume and why?
Kaoru [of Dir en Grey] from the Yokan music video. . I thought he looked really attractive in the video so i wanted to make that outfit, except it was more of a closet-cosplay so. . didn't work out too well :c
What is your favorite costume and why?
Apart from fashion design, I haven't made very many ~cosplays~ [though i've wanted to]. I was always myself at con's, meaning full of J-street fashion & Steampunk clothes. Luckily I was able to draw crowds, but I definitely want to cosplay this year, and I AM! ♥
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Hmm. . . Well I'm making VOCALOiD outfits so I suppose that fits one of my "dreams" XD
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Being swamped with photographers. It's such an awesome experience. . .except when you're in pain all day OTL
Do you participate in masquerades?
I WILL AX '09 :D
Have you won any awards for your costumes?

Is there anything else you'd like to add?
Caroline/Carrie/Yukari from Paradise Kiss and I are literally the same person. Same name, hair, model, and though she doesn't design fashion, her friends do. I also have friends with the same color hair/personalities. Weird? \(-u - ;; )
