What got you into cosplay?
I've been into cosplay since I was very young and made myself an Ariel costume. I really didn't get truely into it though until after I saw Star Wars: Attack of the Clones. I loved the costumes and so I made Jedi tunics. I've been making new costumes ever since. Some good, some not so good lol.
What was your first costume and why?
Ariel when I was three. I took this baby sleeping bag, which was green and put my legs in it then tied a purple scarf around my chest.
My "real costume" was a pair of Jedi Tunics. The fabric was horrible, but it was my real attempt at sewing a costume.
What is your favorite costume and why?
I have 3! First is my Tinkerbell costume. I love that costume because I love being Tinkerbell. I find her character very easy to slip in to and I always have so much fun!
Next is my Hermione ballgown simply because I am so happy with the way it turned out. It was such a complicated costume to make so I am quite proud of it.
Finally, my Belle ballgown. There's nothing like having a childhood dream come true and it certainly did for me with this costume.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Lots: Hermione's Yule Ball Gown, All Elizabeth Swann's gowns (Espeically the Peach one), Padme's Senatorial Gown.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Going to conventions and seeing all my friends.
Do you participate in masquerades?
We did a skit based on the episode Runaway bride from Doctor Who at ConCarolinas 2010.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
