About Me / Q&A

What got you into cosplay?
My mom used to make a lot of my Halloween costumes when I was little, so I could be whatever I wanted on Halloween instead of whatever was in the nearest store. So when I heard about cosplay, where you can dress up at other times of the year with other people who go in custom costumes as their favorite characters, I was all over that.
What was your first costume and why?
My first handmade costume of a specific character was Pikachu, in around 3rd grade, after I got my first video game (Pokemon Yellow version) and was in love with everything Pokemon. My mom made it for me for Halloween since I really wanted to be a Pikachu and mass-produced Pikachu costumes didn't exist yet. My first costume I had a part in making after I had at least heard about cosplay and discovered anime/manga was Sesshoumaru, though this was still for Halloween. Marth was my first costume I made for conventions, when I was fully into the cosplay/con scene.
Tell us a little about yourself
I'm in college. As for hobbies, I used to do more interesting stuff, but my current lifestyle's gotten more boring. Most of my free time is spent on the Internet. I still play some video games and do art occasionally. Playing piano, following media like manga/anime...not so much anymore. Sadly, costuming looks like it's headed this direction too, as it's extremely demanding on time/effort, and I've been heavily dependent on my parents' help, which I can't count on getting in the future.
