What got you into cosplay?
Browsing many cosplay photos on sites around the Net. Now, recently, some of my BFFs. ;)
What was your first costume and why?
Umeho Nekozawa from Ouran High School Host Club. Frankly, I didn't have much time to make a costume (or the money at the time) so I decided to do something simple. It wasn't the most super glamorous or professional cosplay, but I got some experience out of sewing and designing a costume (also of buying good wigs).
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Possibly my most favorite of the reactions was when I wore my "Human Error" Optimus Prime at Otakuthon 2009 where one person who was managing her friend's table literally screamed "OMG! IT'S OPTIMUS!" when she saw me pass by the artist alley. It made me grin redonculously when we went on a fangasm about "Transformers Animated" for about 10 minutes before we departed (but not before exchanging Deviantart names and e-mails!)
Do you participate in masquerades?
No, but I heard they take a long time to prepare for. Although I'm hoping to participate thin the near future!
