What got you into cosplay?
Looking at pictures of other cosplayers, and a few friends saying I "looked like the girl on the poster over my bed". Which was actually Cloud Strife, from FFVII, and obviously not a girl.
What was your first costume and why?
Marluxia from Kingdom Hearts 2/Chain of Memories. I only intended to make an Organisation XIII coat for the hell of it, and then I spotted a pink wig when I was out shopping, so I thought... why not? Marluxia is awesome. Sadly, the costume turned out crap, so don't expect any pictures of that one!
What is your favorite costume and why?
My favorites are Original game Cloud, Baralai, and Advent Children Cloud. They were the ones I put the most effort in to.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Pipeline cosplays I have planned include:
Leonardo da Vinci (Assassins Creed 2)
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
This is going to sound like such cheese, but my favorite part of cosplaying is the people. I've met so many friends through it.
A great big massive thank you to everyone who's left a comment or sent me a PM. It means a hell of a lot to me.
Do you participate in masquerades?
What was your best masquerade experience?
Being Kuja at MCM Expo May 2009. Our FFIX skit was so much fun.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Third Place with my AC Cloud at Collectormania Manchester March 2008
Tell us a little about yourself
Um, well I guess I should start with an introduction. I'm Bloo, I'm 22 years young and live in a boring little town called Saltburn, in north-east England.
I'm an auxilliary nurse in the Surgical High Dependency Unit at James Cook University Hospital, and I love it. I also love to act, roleplay, play video games and just be the big freak I am.
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
I'm pretty friendly, so if you want to chat to me, don't be shy! Send me a PM and I'll get back to you ^__^
