What got you into cosplay?
Adella. She inspires me. I remember going online my very first time.. and I had just got done playing FF7. I ended up making a sn to RP with on Y!Messenger, and then I started looking for pictures. I was so into the character of Aeris, because she resembles alot of my personality. Anyways, as I was looking for photos I came across this young woman who was dressed JUST like Aeris, and looked to be her twin! I was thrilled and inspired and hoped one day I could get into what she does, and here I am!
What was your first costume and why?
Aerith Gainsborough. I started Roleplaying her about 8 years ago on Y!Messenger. I began the game beforehand and fell in love with her character.
What is your favorite costume and why?
Well, I really dont have a "favorite" just quite yet. But I will say that I do adore my Crisis Core Cosplay, since I worked EXTREMELY hard on it, and since it was my very first hand sewn cosplay.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
My own version of Aeris, Wall Market Aeris, Lenne from FFX-2, Belle from Beauty and the Beast... many more.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
My first Con was back at MTAC 2007. I had so many people asking me for my picture, it was really fun, and an exhilirating experience. I never knew how cons worked and when I walked in, I got bombarded, it was cute. <3.
Do you participate in masquerades?
Not yet, but i'd love to attend one.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Sadly I havent. I attended a costume contest and sat in there for the rest of my con-time one day, and was disgusted with the wait on top of how many people that were signed up, so I dont think I could go through that again. But im glad I got some experience from it!
Tell us a little about yourself
