What got you into cosplay?
I always loved sewing, and my creative need was met when I started cosplaying thanks to my sister. This was more than just sewing clothes. It's about figuring out new techniques and making friends in the process.
What was your first costume and why?
First one I wore was Hinamori from Bleach. I liked the show at the time, and it was super easy to find. My first handmade costume was Tomoyo Hime from Tsubasa Chronicles. I had a bolt of purple fabric and decided to make it.
What is your favorite costume and why?
My favorite at this time is my Granado Espada, Le Dignitaire Elementalist costume. I put a lot of effort in to it, and it's the most detailed work I've done so far. I always strive to do better than the last, and my next project will probably well surpass this one.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Seth Nightroad is my current dream costume. I will be starting it soon, and I can't wait to finally make it.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Most memorable so far is winning 2 awards at Anime North 2011, with my partner. It was my first time ever entering this contest and to win twice was a huge surprise to me. I was super nervous too.
Do you participate in masquerades?
I do! I put a lot time and effort in to my costumes, so it gives me the opportunity to participate in something to showcase it.
