One of these days I'll make one of those awesome IDs that has all of my cosplays on it. Well, if I can ever keep up with myself, that is.
+1: When did you start cosplaying?+
Anime Expo 2005
+2: What was your first cosplay?+
Rinoa Heartilly, Final Fantasy VIII!
+3: Who got you into cosplaying?+
Myself? My high school Anime Club was taking a trip to Anime Expo over the summer, and when I started researching, I learned about cosplay!
+4: Have any cosplay idols?+
Oh my gosh, YES. I admire so many cosplayers for their hard work!
, and many, many more...! I'm not sure how many still have DA's, but there are some fine examples!
+5: What is your favorite series to cosplay?+
Any and every series I've cosplayed from thus far! And more to come! I can't choose just one!
+6: So far, what have you cosplayed?+
Far too many to list! I'll try to update visually (add to my gallery)!
+7: Do you make your own cosplays?+
Yes! I've bought, closeted, altered, and made from scratch.
+8: What are your specialties when it comes to cosplays? (Makeup art, props, wig styling, etc.)+
I really don't feel like I have a "specialty" per se; I just do my best at whatever I'm working on! I'm definitely not confident in wig-styling or prop-making, though.
+9: Favorite character to cosplay?+
I CANNOT CHOOSE. I love them all for one reason or another, and that's why I cosplay them!
If this means AU's or casual versions, then I don't mind doing them sometimes. I used to do them more frequently, but now I would rather do canon cosplays, personally!
+11: Couple Cosplays?+
+12: What cons do you like to attend?+
Most of the cons I've ever attended have been pretty great! Anime Expo, Anime Los Angeles, Phoenix Comicon/Comic Fest, Saboten Con... I really do especially love California cons, though!
+13: Masquerades? Skits?+
I. LOVE. THEM.
They're a blast and I love attending them whenever I can!
+15: Won any awards?+
+16: What do you plan to cosplay in the future?+
I have a few things in the works...I guess you'll just have to wait and see!
+17: What makes you unique as a cosplayer?+
I guess what makes every cosplayer unique (ironically): I just put my own spin on everything! I just do my best.
+18: Made good friends through cosplay?+
+19: Do you like photoshoots?+
I LOVE THEM *Photography nut* I love being the subject as well as the photographer!
+20: Why do you cosplay?+
I love being able to bring a character to life, to be able to "become" a character I hold near and dear to my heart (for whatever reason) for a little while! I love seeing someone light up when they see me, and because it's a chance to connect with other people who have similar interests!
