What got you into cosplay?
People cosplaying on the internet, specifically some person who looked closely like Dilandau. And because I couldn't dress up for halloween unless it was anime related. So, yeah. One thing lead to another.
(Edited) I FOUND HER AGAIN!!! Karisu-Sama!!! T__T She was my inspiration.
What was your first costume and why?
My first costumes was Misty from Pokemon. Because I wanted to dress up as a character for halloween, but I didn't have a specific costume to wear. Since my mom constantly buys me clothes, I have assortments of clothing of different styles. And come to find out, I had the materials to complete a Misty Costume. *smile*
What is your favorite costume and why?
My favorite costume is the Red Mage costume, because it is my best costume yet. ^^ hehe. And I love the color red, so it was the best choice of costume. D: First time sooo many people took pictures of me!!! ^___^
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
I have no idea yet... But it would definately have to be a character with near my skin tone and body size. Male or Female, I dun mind.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
My most memorable was my Haseo costume. Soooooo many sleepless nights in a row. And I was still working on it in the hotel and before Masquerade. GAH! It was sooooo horrible, yet so fun! Plus I got to make a 7ft tall sword! Not only that but I also was in a cosplay group for the first time with my close friend and now Business Partner. ; )
Do you participate in masquerades?
Yep! I've only done it once tho. It was a fun first experience. I burned my finger with a glue gun before I came up, so that was totally crazy! Plus it was at the AX in Long Beach '07, and that was the year where the convention staff and the anime expo staff did NOT cooperate. So it made it little more stressful than the usual masquerade.
What was your best masquerade experience?
Look at previous question. :)
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
No, just a small award with my Red Mage. And I didn't get to have my Haseo costume judged.
