What got you into cosplay?
I've always loved making things and acting. I saw some people cosplaying at Anime North on TV around 2000 and knew it was something I'd love to try.
What is your favorite costume and why?
Any variant of Asuka because I relate to her so well and its fun to portray her bratty attitude.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
My dream costume is what ever my current project is. I love challenging myself!
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Going to the hospital Saturday night of OtaFest 2011 because I scratched my cornea on cheap contact lenses. Lesson learned!
Do you participate in masquerades?
Only if I have a really good idea for a skit that I think people NEED to see.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Best in Show 1st Runner up Journeymen (OtaFest 2007), Miss OtaFest 2nd Runner up (2008), Hall Masquerade Judges Choice (OtaFest 2009), Miss OtaFest 1st Runner Up (2009), Hall Masqurade 1st Place Advanced (OtaFest 2010), Miss OtaFest (2010), Best Comedy Skit (OtaFest Lite 2010), Best Costume Journeymen (CCEE 2011), Judge's Choice - Tsukino-Con 2012 Anime Swimsuit Contest
