What got you into cosplay?
Because running around in cool costumes is FUN, obviously!
What was your first costume and why?
Nandaba Kamon, aka Naota's Creepy Dad on FLCL. I picked him since I could pretty much make it out of normal clothes instead of sewing.
...and as a result, no one realized it was actually a costume. ^^;;;
What is your favorite costume and why?
Thus far, Dr. Forrester from Mystery Science Theater 3000. It looks pretty cool, which is nice, but that's not why I like it the most. MST3k costumes aren't all that common, and a lot people don't even recognize it, but when they do they think it's REALLY cool. That's pretty darn fun, right there.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
No question: Digimon Emperor Ken from Digimon 02. Digimon was the first anime I geeked out over, and Ken's outfit is still one of the biggest steaming piles of AWESOME ever conceived.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Well, I really haven't had too many experiences to remember yet, but having people chant "Dr Forrester" for my MST3k costume was pretty dang cool.
Do you participate in masquerades?
I haven't yet, but that's just 'cos no one's asked me to yet.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Ha ha. That's funny.

Okay... I grew up in Atlanta, I was homeschooled, I recently graduated from Southeastern College at Wake Forest, I'm an aspiring web cartoonist, I'm part of the drama team at Faith Baptist Church, I'm a shy and gutless coward, and Jesus Christ is my Lord and Savior.
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
Uh... I'm addicted to caffeine, I don't like cars or driving, I live by the internet, I swear by Velcro shoes, I like funny hats, I don't like getting up late but I don't like getting up early even more, I'm a cat person, I was raised on science fiction from my earliest days, and...
