What got you into cosplay?
My first anime convention was A-Kon 18 2007 and I saw how much fun all of the cosplayers had and, since I rather have the body for Toboe, I decided: "Hey, why not?!" especially after my friends threatened to kill me if I didn't cosplay our beloved wolf.
What was your first costume and why?
My first costume was Toboe from Wolf's Rain. I chose this cosplay because it was easy and cheap to assemble, which is good for an unemployed high school damsel such as myself. >.<;;
What is your favorite costume and why?
Remus Lupin, 1975. ...Do I really have to explain myself? I get to eat chocolate all day, the scar makeup isn't painful to apply or remove (huge yay!), and I have a wonderful group of mates that make up the rest of my cosplay group.
I also really do enjoy the character. Remus is such a strong young man and, well, he shows what a real werewolf is. >:3
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Queen Esther Blanchett from Trinity Blood.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Cosplay Chess at AnimeFest 2008. It was fun~~ I was cosplaying Youji from Loveless and I got to kill Pyramid Head! Only...to be struck down with Princess Peach's deadly frying pan! ;___;
It was still super fun. :]]]
Do you participate in masquerades?
I plan to. I just...have to convince stage-fright-stricken friends to come with me.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Mini A-Kon I at the Denton Public Library: 2nd place in the cosplay contest with Toboe
Mini A-Kon II at the DPL: 1st place in the cosplay contest with Hijikata Toushiro
Mini A-Kon III at the DPL: "Best use of special effects" with Mukuro.
Tell us a little about yourself
I am currently a Freshman Zoology major at Texas A&M University, College Station. I'm a very musical, artsy, and literary person, and mathematics of advanced measures that don't deal directly with the health field are the bane of my existence.
My favourite animal is the wolf (which works out nicely doesn't it?) and my favourite colours are green and orange.
I like most kinds of music aside from rap and screamo, and if you put on Caramelldansen, chances are I'll be there dancing right along with you. I find it impossible to NOT dance to that song, AND it's a good work out.
I need a job. 'Nuff said.
I'd like to get a bit more muscle going on in my upper body, and maybe tone my legs a bit- I'm not flabby, but when you crossplay, it makes a difference. xD
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
I hate long wigs. -headdesk-

My favorite game(s)
I'm not much of a gamer, but only because I lack the systems [I only have a PS1 and a Sega Genesis xDD]. However, if I was given the chance to play, I'm sure I'd love Kingdom Hearts and all that jazz. ^^ But I do like Bomberman, Frogger, and Spyro for Playstation 1. Haha.
