What got you into cosplay?
my friends and i were gonna attend a mini-con near where we live. Several of them already had costumes made, not very elaborate ones, but still costumes. So the night before we went i threw together a Misanagi costume from Rurouni Kenshin. We had so much fun with this last minute cosplay that we decided from then on we would go all out, and boy, have we!
What was your first costume and why?
Misanagi from Rurouni Kenshin, she had an easy costume however it looked really cool. and it was one i could throw together over night! ^_^
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
The WCS Masq. at NYAF 08. So many wonderful people, great skits, amazing costumes, and I got an award I felt happy with, finally competing against people I felt were REAL competition. Our skit went great and the audience actually liked it! My old roomie Dia and her partner Liz won the WCS and I was more happy for them than anything! It was all just wonderful!
Do you participate in masquerades?
yup, I love to, it is always what I look forward to at Cons, even tho it takes up a lot of time! (and they are usually poorly organized) :P
What was your best masquerade experience?
