What got you into cosplay?
Anime in general. I've been playing video games, watching Anime and reading fantasy books since I can remember. My parents are even into Anime so it kind of runs in my genes.
What was your first costume and why?
If you count that one horrible Halloween I tried and FAILED to cosplay, it would be Legato from Trigun, but my first real cosplay was Ivy from Soul Calibur 1 her secondary outfit. Kinda crap and hoping to live that down. I hated it.
What is your favorite costume and why?
Dominique the Cyclops from Trigun. I love it.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
My dream cosplay would have to be Zool from Ghostbusters. I don't know why, but I've always thought walking around asking everyone "Are you a God?" would be so much fun. My dream ANIME cosplay would be Felicia from Darkstalkers, I already meow enough as it is lol. My dream COMIC costume would have to be a PERFECT Harley Quinn. I know I already have the costume, but the cosplay experience was less than satisfying. This costume will always be a work in progress until I'm happy w/ it.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Having a professional photographer actually pull my entire Steampunk cosplay group out for a private shoot. We were very flattered.
Do you participate in masquerades?
No I don't, but I watch them every year at Fanime.
What was your best masquerade experience?
Watching a Pokemon themed masquerade skit and every began to sing a long to the Pokemon theme.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
