About Me / Q&A
What got you into cosplay?
Friends talking me into it.
What was your first costume and why?
The 'generic' elf probably doesn't count.
I wore the Kenshin costume on the same day I later wore the Leonardo (Ninja Turtle) costume in the SDC Masq.
Why? Because a friend talked me into it....
What is your favorite costume and why?
Abel has become my fave, although I still really enjoy the Ukitake cosplay, too. It's because the character is a lot of fun to cosplay and gets a lot of interaction with even non-cosplayers, too. So you get to meet a lot of people.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Current dream costume is artbook Empire Abel. And I'm finally getting back to working on it.
After that it's going to be something crazy with armor....
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Anime Expo 2008...which was awesome because of the other cosplayers. It was the most awesome debut for a costume I've had so far, even though my costume wasn't complete at the time.
Do you participate in masquerades?
Yes. But not at every convention.
What was your best masquerade experience?
Best as in "best accomplishment" would be NDK 2010.
Best as in "best experience" would be between AX 09 and NDK 10. There's a difference in competing as part of a group or on one's own, and even if it's stressful and crazy at times in a group, in retrospect it can still be a 'best'.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
A few highlights are:
NDK 2010 Ryuuki got Best in Show.
AX 2009 I was part of a group that got 2nd Place for our Krusnik quartet skit and costumes, with me wearing Abel.
Fanime 2011 with Shokora, we got Honorable Mention for Group Craftsmanship for Berserk costumes. (Entered at Masters level.)
