What got you into cosplay?
Messing around with the clothes in my closet one night. I accidentally found the pieces to cosplay as Hisoka Kurosaki(Yami No Matsuei/Descendants of Darkness) and wore it to school. Of course my friends pointed it out to me and yeah...it kinda went from there...
What was your first costume and why?
Hisoka Kurosaki(Yami No Matsuei/Descendants of Darkness) because I look so much like him and I figured I'd start out easy.
What is your favorite costume and why?
My new favorite is Milly from Code Geass <3 It's just such a fun costume to wear!
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Yui's Priestess of Seiryu outfit from Fushigi Yugi. I'm working on losing weight for this one; Princess Allura's pink gown from Voltron, which I'll (hopefully) be doing next year ^_^, and Sage/Seiji (under armor and full armor versions) from Ronin Warriors, I've wanted to do this crossplay since I started cosplaying <3
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
I can't decide....
Do you participate in masquerades?
No...I might in the future though ^_^
Tell us a little about yourself
I have a book published by lounging lizard publishing called WarTorn Hearts. My penname is E.M.Hope.
I enjoy writing, reading, dancing, traveling, listening to music, and hanging out with the people I love.
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
I'm learning to open up more to people, so I'm much more outgoing than I used to be. If I seem shy, it's because a)you're cosplaying as a character that I'm a fangirl of (I'm a SANE fangirl) or b)I'm not sure what to say.
