What got you into cosplay?
It's a mix between my love of anime and my over active imagination. I've always loved to pretend that I'm someone else. I get a kick out of how people respond to me.
What was your first costume and why?
Sailor Jupiter. I bought it off Ebay, since I had absolutely no idea how to sew ^_^'. I've gotten much better since then, so everything after that is gonna be made with my own blood, sweat, tears, and hot glue...
What is your favorite costume and why?
Turra from Jetta:Tales of the Toshigawa. It was a big hit at the Mid-South Con. It had some issues and I can't wait to re-do it.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Yeah buddy, Berserker Paine. Paine is a bad ass mamma-jamma. Unfortunately my skills aren't quite there yet, but I'm working on it. On a easier note, I'd love to do a Hatsuharu Shoma costume because I just lurves him so much ^_^.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Well I had to fuel up the car before I headed to a con and some random guy offered to pay for my gas. Apparently some guys are turned on by Sailor fuku ^_^'.
Do you participate in masquerades?
Not but I think I'm gonna suck it up and masquerade at MTAC Ninja and the Mid-South Con.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
I won first place at Con-Sequential 2006. Of course I was the only one in costume...
Tell us a little about yourself
I am a sophomore at The University of Memphis. I'm a history major so that makes me a certified dweeb. I have a kid, who is awesome. Yeah that's right, my child prodigy can kick your child prodigy's ass! I do hate my job, so if anyone wants a secretary I'm your gal. XD
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
Sword Chucks, Yo! XD
