What got you into cosplay?
My friend Jennifer was already a big anime fan like me when i first met her. She's the one responsible for my addiction.
What was your first costume and why?
My first costume was a Temari cosplay. i got the fan and the outfit (which i can't find for pictures, unfortunately)
my first COMPLETE costume was Yuffie A/C. i chose her because i love her attitude and it was easy.
What is your favorite costume and why?
My favorite costume has got to be the one i just completed today. Rikku Thief. Over used and uncreative, but i'm proud i completed this costume in less than a week and it came out great in my opinion. It's still under constant upkeep and construction.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Several, actually. i've always wanted to cosplay an Ichigo Mashimaro character, but that's too simple :D. i'd love to attempt something different like a female version of DBZ characters, which my friend Amanda and i are working on.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
When i was cosplaying Rikku for the first time at Ohayocon 2010, it was the first day of the convention. There was a staff member in the middle of a crowd in the hallway bent down on his knees with a rose. As my friends and i walked past him, he screamed "RIKKU, YOU HAVE STOLEN MY HEART!" and to be honest, it startled me a bit. Haha, i regret being so startled as to walking away faster. I wished i had stayed and played along.
Tell us a little about yourself
I'm a Sophomore this year, i live with my brother and parents, and have a cat named after one of my best friends. I love swimming and tend to get WAYYY overly obsessive with anime and videogame plots. For example, getting teary when Zack Fair died at the end of Crisis Core.
