What got you into cosplay?
Halloween party hosted by college anime club.
What was your first costume and why?
Ryoga Hibiki. Favorite anime character, of course.
What is your favorite costume and why?
Riku from Kingdom Hearts! The first time I saw the outfit, I knew it was destiny. That, and the dude's a freaking NINJA!
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
A tie between:
1) Getting glomped for the first time.
2) The Matrix gathering at Anime Expo 2003.
3) "THIS IS FOR ENDLESS WALTZ!"
4) Ranma vs. Naruto II (Anime Expo 2004)
5) Kissing a girl at the Kingdom Hearts gathering *blush* (Anime Expo 2006)
Do you participate in masquerades?
What was your best masquerade experience?
The one where all the acts are good.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
My nephews say I "fused with Riku." Does that count?
Tell us a little about yourself
I like to cosplay my favorite characters and take as many cosplay photos as possible. Say hello if you get a chance, or jump me from behind like all my friends do. ^_^* Oh, and I tend to raid forums and galleries whenever possible.
Don't be discouraged if I don't say much at first. I'm an introvert. It takes time.
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
If you want to get my attention, cosplay as a character I like (points down to his Favorite Characters list.) Don't be subtle and don't play hard to get, I'm not a mind reader (despite popular opinion). And PLEASE say something that's interesting TO ME. I can listen, but only for so long.
