What got you into cosplay?
I have always enjoyed role games so it was pretty natural that cosplay started to interest me. I also like acting so it was nice to notice that people actually treat you, like you were the character for real.
What was your first costume and why?
My first 'real' costume was Roxas.
It was that time, when Kingdom Hearts 2 was so 'in' and me and my sister decided to cosplay Roxas and Kairi.
And.. the rest of story is history.
What is your favorite costume and why?
My favorite costume right now is Karina Lyle from Tiger Bunny. I made a dress and a vest for the first time.
Her clothes are simple but good-looking.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Many....... For example Fuu from Magic Knight Rayearth, Princess Emeraude from Magic Knight Rayearth, Edward Elric from Fullmetal Alchemist, Link from The Legend of Zelda, Rikku from Final Fantasy X-2 and Shuyin from Final Fantasy X-2. Donald Duck from Kingdom Hearts games, Ventus from Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep, Kid Zelda from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Hope Estheim from Final Fantasy XIII, Popuri from Harvest Moon games
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
It was my first convention, where I cosplayed. Can't be forgotten.
When I was in Tracon III I met my netfriend. She's awesome!
Oh, how I miss Animecon VI, Desucon and CosplayGaala 2009.
Do you participate in masquerades?
Never took part in.
What was your best masquerade experience?
It was my friend's birthday party and there was masquerades. I have no idea how old I was (maybe from 8 to 10, can't remember) but I wanted to dress like Link from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. I have this red elf hat (we used to use elf hats in Christmas), red skirt and red t-shirt and brown boots from second hand shop. I wish I could have a photo of it. I was so fancy xD
So, I guess that's my very first "cosplay costume" even though I didin't understand what it did mean.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
I haven't won anything in individual competitions but I have won prizes with my group. Check out my Roxas and Kyoko Tokiwa cosplay.
Tell us a little about yourself
I am 21-year-old girl from Finland. Right now I am studying business economics, marketing as my orientation.
My hobbies are singing, drawing, watching anime and reading manga, surfing in Internet and cosplay.
And I write poems.
Btw, sometimes I write not-so-good English so excuse me ;)
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
I wanna be a singer someday! Or seiyuu. Dubbing is a hard job, but it's so cool! It is always nice to me to use my voice.
If you like to hear some dubbing project I've made, search Ninnusama from Youtube ;)
