What got you into cosplay?
What was your first costume and why?
Herbert (Family Guy) - I wanted to make people laugh. Plus, he's a fun character to pretend to be.
What is your favorite costume and why?
It's either my Johannes Krauser II costume or the Red Lantern costume. The Krauser one is just beautiful and it definitely turned heads when I was walking around wearing it in DC. The Red Lantern feels comfortable, looks cool, and has a great color to it.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Huge pokemon gijinka fan, so I should just list the ones I want to dress up as:
Exploud, Emboar, Bisharp (Kirikizan), Seismitoad (Gamageroge)
I really want to do gijinkas for all the Black/White pokemon because that's a vastly unexplored territory
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
I was dressed as Dr. Samuel Beckett (complete drag) when I met Scott Bakula (actor who played the character). He thought it was the real costume from the show.
Do you participate in masquerades?
Not yet. I'm still not sure how they work
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
psssh, yeah right
Tell us a little about yourself
