What got you into cosplay?
A friend of mine studied japanese linguistics and a fellow student of her did cosplay. In 2006 they wanted to go together on a convention and asked me to come with them. Well, the girl told me about her cosplay-hobby and I loved the idea to look like one of my favorite characters. So I just did it ;)
What was your first costume and why?
My first costume was a character that doesn't exist^^ It's an artwork from a man called Digon Roger. He designed Rinoa for a future part of Kingdom Hearts and won a competition with his design. But I didn't know that at first. I just saw the picture and thought "this is it". And besides, it didn't look too difficult to make ;)
What is your favorite costume and why?
difficult question, cause I like every costume for a special reason... but if I have to answer, I would say it's Juvia Loxar =)
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Princess Zelda from Legend of Zelda
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
I think that was my first cosplay-day. It was a strange feeling and I didn't even want to come out of the bathroom at the convention, where I put my costume on *giggle*
But when I went out, many people liked my costume very much and they all wanted to take pictures of me. That made me very proud of my work and was a very positive experience for me.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
nope, I'm not really the stage-type ;D
Tell us a little about yourself
Well, I'm a student and I'll become a teacher for history and german. When I'm not studying (which is most time *shame on me*), I like to read a lot, I love to draw, to play videogames, to go shopping and all that stuff, and of course I do cosplay!
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
hm.. I don't think so...
My favorite anime
I like Ghibli films very much. But the most important animes for me are Saior Moon, Mila Super Star, Rock'n Roll Kids, KKJ, Disney movies and all these things that I grew up with. They are really beautiful memories for me. I like serious animes liek Darker than Black, fate stay night, or accel world... Hm... and I always loved stupid animes like Aika or Ikki Tousen or B gata H Kei XD
all in all tehre are too much great series ;)
My favorite game(s)
I'm a girl.... so of course I love Final Fantasy ;) These games are just fantastic. Except part XII... I was really dissapointed from that one. Not beause of the system (that was great), but the story wasn't exiting at all. I'm a fan of Tomb Raider and several beat 'em up's (e.g. Soul Calibur, Dead or Alive and Mortal Kombat). And since I got it from my boyfriend, I like Castlevania - Symphony of the Night very much.
My favorite book(s)
Oh.. there are too much of them^^
Books: Jane Eyre, the Pillars of the Earth, Pride and Predjudice, Madame Bovary... I think these are the books I like most of all.
Manga:Angel Sanctuary, Card Captor Sakura, Tsubasa Chronicles, Anne Freaks, KKJ, Fushigi Yuugi, Alichino... and there are many more^^
My favorite character(s)
I think it is Rinoa, that's why I cosplayed her. I like her style, her character, her story, everything. But there are of course others who are great, for example Arashi Kishu from X, Mioby from Alichino, Michael and Raphael from AS, Maaron Kusakabe, Juvia Loxar, Hikari Hanazono... too much again :D
My favorite movies(s)
Lost in Translation & Bin Jip and every movie from tim burton and quentin tarantino :D
My favorite actors/actresses
Hm.. I don't think I really have a special one. But I like Bill Murray, he's a gorgeous actor.. And I think Angeline Jolie is quite hot^^
