About Me / Q&A

What got you into cosplay?
I've always loved anime since I was young and I've loved to dress up as a child. So it was only natural that when I found out about cosplay, I would have to try it. My friend from college was already into cosplay when we met and I started to make my own cosplay my junior year, with my boyfriend now husband. We've only gotten more serious about it, making Portal as our first non-closet cosplay in 2010, then 2011 making Sailor Senshi outfits for my friends and I.
What was your first costume and why?
My first costumes were Rin Tohsaka and Shiro Emiya from Fate/Stay Night. They were easy and I loved Fate/Stay Night so much that I really wanted to cosplay it. Since they were so comfortable and very easy to find/make, it was a good choice to get into cosplay.
What is your favorite costume and why?
My favorite costume has to be Chell since it's so recognizable and comfortable. Plus I'm really proud of our Portal Gun. Since Goose is an electrical engineer by degree and by profession, he loves making technical props.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
My absolute dream costume to make is a Hardsuit from Bubblegum Crisis that is fully articulated and light up. If I can learn how to make things with fiberglass and lose enough weight, I want to make Nene's or Lina's versions. Preferably not Sylia's or Priss' since their heels are on pointe.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
My most memorable cosplay experience has to be my first professional photoshoot for our Sailor Senshi costumes. It was my first one ever, so it was exciting and having a group cosplay was fun for all of us to enjoy.
