What got you into cosplay?
Like most girls here, I grew up watching Sailor Moon. From that I tried to google sailor moon costumes for sale and I found pictures of people cosplaying them. I always make my own costume for Halloween since then, but I didn't truly get into cosplay until 2006-2008.
What was your first costume and why?
Technically... Matsuura Aya's character from the 2006 Sukeban Deka movie for Halloween. But my first "real" cosplay has to be Kamei Eri from Hello!Project 2008 Wonderful Hearts performance of Aiin! Dance no Uta.
What is your favorite costume and why?
Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games trilogy. I feel like a boss running around in it.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Aerith [FFVII default],Katniss Everdeen [Hunger Games reaping dress], Oswin Oswald [Asylum of the Daleks], 10th Doctor [Doctor Who], and much much more.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Having In-n-Out workers refer to me as Ash Ketchum and singing the Pokemon theme song on Halloween 2013.
Do you participate in masquerades?
Yes, once in SacAnime Summer 2008.
What was your best masquerade experience?
People cheering me on when I did the dance to Kirarin*Revolution 3rd opening. It was my first con and everything, so it felt great.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
