What got you into cosplay?
Oddly enough...YTV's reports about Anime North.
What was your first costume and why?
Rikku - FFX
Because, well... Blonde, FF, and, hmmm... Cool costume that fitted at that time. ...that is if you don't count the yellow Power Ranger when I was still in elementary school xD
What is your favorite costume and why?
Rangiku Matsumoto. It's great to cosplay her, it boosts your self-esteem a lot ^^ Though Aion is my fav so far, I just love that cosplay look, though it's a hell to walk around with it without either hitting a claw somewhere, or Pandaemonium, or my sword....or my wings....or my ears XD
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Probably Catherina (Trinity Blood). I shall make it eventually, as the group dissolved for 2012...
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Otakuthon 2008 - Because the Bleach people were just too awesome. And I have to admit, the cosplay chess was great as well ^^ I made MANY new friends that I still have today in that year too :)
Do you participate in masquerades?
Before 2011 no, first 'real' one was at Otakuthon 2011 with our Dissidia group (...and I jumped from nothing to Artisan because of it *facepalm*)
I'm planning on participating as most as I can in future cons though, it's a lot of fun when it's well organised ^^
What was your best masquerade experience?
...I only have 3 to compare, and the first one wasn't even a 'real' one as we entered only for the heck of it xD (I was almost blind without contact lenses the entire time too O_O)
So I guess it's a tied between Otakuthon 2011 with our BIG dissidia group (even though I was about to fall unconcious before entering the stage), and Con-G 2012 with our Dissidia villains group (Emperor, Kuja and Sephiroth). ...Even if we didn't win anything in the last one, but fellow cosplayers came to us after it to congratulate us so we don't care about what the judges decided, fellow cosplayers is what is important to us, not judges :p. Screw the judges, love the cosplayers! *go hides after the lame YGO abridged comment*
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Uh, well...I won an Anime North 2008 Hall Costume Award while wearing Aion... I didn't even know what it was before the girl explained it to me x'D
I also won Best Artisan at Otakuthon 2011 (first 'real' masquerade) with the Dissidia crew when wearing WoL. ...and I'm scared to death to now be an Artisan with only one masquerade experience O_O
Tell us a little about yourself
I JUST finished University, so now I can go find myself a full time job ^^
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
I have bicolored eyes (faintly, but still), and proud of it! (Go FFX for making me realise it, lol).
Yup, totally random, I know!
I'm also a white/silver hair freak...as in I always seem to be interested in those kind of character to cosplay ^^;
