What got you into cosplay?
I was looking for artwork designs for FFX characters on google and found cosplayers as well!
What was your first costume and why?
Young Link from The Legend of Zelda for Halloween when I was 11 ^^;
What is your favorite costume and why?
Right now it's my Cecil Harvey Dark Knight costume (still in production)
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
I have an ever-growing list of cosplays I'd like to do, but my dream costume would be the ARX-7 Arbalest from Full Metal Panic! I'd want it to have LED lights and everything.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Cosplaying as Squall Leonhart in full leather in the summer heat of Otakon 2009. It was so hot out! Had a great time though. Then cosplaying him again at AAC 09. After I did my masquerade walk-on everyone in the crowd high-fived me.
Cosplaying as Jin with a Fuu and Mugen at ConnectiCon 2008, improvising sword battles with Mugen. Didn't work very well but it was fun!
Cosplaying as Leon from KH2 and riding my friend (a chocobo) down the hallway of Anime Boston 2007.
Do you participate in masquerades?
So far I've only done a walk-on in the AAC 09 masquerade, but I have plans for the future.
