What got you into cosplay?
When Final Fantasy X-2 came out I was obsessed with finding pictures and I came across many pictures of people in costume and thats when I found out what it was. I ended up lassoing my friend Anna into it, and we cosplayed as a pair, but alas her schedule doesn't give her enough time to do it anymore so now I'm flyin solo.
What was your first costume and why?
My first actual cosplay was Sonya Blade from the Mortal Kombat movie. I loved the game and my mom made me the costume the year it came out. My first actual cosplay was Zeke from Zombies Ate My Neighbors, which was for fun and later revamped for Anime Iowa 2006.
What is your favorite costume and why?
Actually my Kamikirimusi, I stopped working on it because of weight issues, yes I care for your eyes. But after someone (TaRu and others) convinced me to finish it I laid a smack down on it. Although its not completely finished I'm proud of the work I put into so far and probably my best made costume. I won't lie I'm also rather partial to my Arystar Krory costume, mainly because of the reaction of people when they see it, I don't think I'll ever retire it, just remake it a thousand times!!
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Saturos or Mendari from Golden Sun it all depends who wants to do it along side me. Also Yoshimitsu's second player costume from Soul Calibur 2. OOO I almost forgot, Ultima the high seraph from Final Fantasy XII
Do you participate in masquerades?
Every once in awhile as well as judge them sometimes
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
