What got you into cosplay?
I use to run around the house in Disney character dresses... okie one dress. It was one dress and it didn't look like any Disney princess. In my head it was and I managed to make it work... From there I fell in love with Sailor Moon. I made costumes for my sister and my neighbor but never myself. I never considered my face to be a good cosplaying face. My sister and I are complete opposites now and she isn't really into it anymore. So, I'm left to make costumes for myself.
What was your first costume and why?
Sailor Jupiter and Sailor Saturn were the first cosplays I made I made them for my sister and neighbor.
For me, Sasori from Naruto. I picked him cause he was a lesser cosplayed Akatsuki member. Also cause I don't pull being a blonde off well at all.
What is your favorite costume and why?
Sasori. It's my first cosplay. It's the one where I sat back so many times and was like, "yea, I can't do this." and in the end I did do it and wanted to start pushing myself even further.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
I really enjoy Anime Iowa '09. I got to be part of an amazing Soul Eater group.
Do you participate in masquerades?
Cosplay is a creative outlet for me. I guess I'd like to join once. That way I can say I tried it at least. Honestly don't think I'm good enough for them. I love watching masquerades. There are people out there with major talent I just don't think I'm really one of them.
Tell us a little about yourself
I'm going to college for nursing right now. This will be my 7th year working at Goodwill, where I'm a support teamleader. I wish I had more to talk about. I'm not really that intresting of a person though 8|
My favorite anime
All time favorite has to be Sailor Moon. It's the anime/manga that got me hooked.
My favorite game(s)
I love games so much... if I had to narrow this down I'd say all Final Fantasy and Silent Hill for sure. However, I'm a big old school nut and love my Mario and Sonic every now and then. You'll also catch me getting my Ace Attorney fix. I love games though and I'll play just about anything.
My favorite book(s)
Catcher in the Rye
