About Me / Q&A

What got you into cosplay?
When I was in third grade a girl from Japan was put in my class. I went to her house after school and she turned on Pokemon. I stuck with pokemon for a while, playing the gameboy games, etc. Eventually I got into Card Captors. When I moved to New York I saw Inuyasha for the first time on Adult Swim when I was 12. That year I went trick or treating as Miroku. The year after I was Inuyasha. I didn't do much between 2003-2005 but after I had moved to Tennessee I found more people who enjoyed anime as much as I did and did some research on conventions and found Middle Tennessee Anime Convention in Nashville. I've been going for five years now and I think my cosplay improves each year with more experience and new skills.
What was your first costume and why?
My first costume was Miroku of Inuyasha on Halloween in 9th grade. My hair had pretty much just been botched so a short ponytail such as his did a good job of hiding it.
What is your favorite costume and why?
My favourite costume thus far is probably Broken Youth Naruto. The yukata itself was quite easy but it was the first year I got into wearing stage make up and continually being in character throughout the convention. It was extremely fun to do the photoshoot and the costume brought a lot of compliments.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
I'd love to do something really detailed and intricate. My costumes are getting more complex the more I cosplay and I'm getting better at prop making, and not cutting things down til the last minute (which was the case with Winry) I would like to cosplay as someone from Final Fantasy XIII or Kaleido Star. A very showy costume.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
When I went to MTAC 06 as Winry I got to hang out with the English VAs for Ed, Roy and Winry. Also being molested at MTAC Ninja by a female sasuke cosplayer.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
My friends and I won Best Group at MTAC '10 for D. Gray-Man
Tell us a little about yourself
I'm in culinary school, which is turning out to be a huge mistake as much as I love making pastries. I draw very frequently (see my deviantart page), I've also gotten in to sewing, jewelry making, embriodery, and other cosplay related hobbies. I read a lot, and get bored easily with work so I change jobs nearly every six months. Eventually I'll have a career. Cosplay eats up all my money.
