What was your first Cosplay experience?
I started to cosplay in 2004 and my first costume was Eclair from Kiddy Grade. Before I even knew cosplay, I also dressed up as a kid with my friends as Sailor Moon or some Stargate characters xD.
I just visited my first convention as a normal visitor in casual clothes. There, I saw cosplay and thought it would be super cool! Next year at the same con, I wore my first handmade costume. It was so much fun that I continued. Now together with many friends and my boyfriend, cosplay became a passion.
How long have you been Cosplaying?
I started in 2004. So quite a while… I am old :’D.
Who or what inspired you to take up Cosplaying?
I saw cosplayers on my first convention and just wanted to try this out as well. I made my first costume 1 year later by hand and wore it to the con. So, nothing special XD. I just saw it and tried it out.
If you had to pick a favorite Cosplay you have worn, or have seen someone else wear, what would it be?
My favorite costumes are my Saber and my Sumia costumes! <3 I pretty much like all of my costumes a lot!!! 😀
If you had unlimited funds and resources, what Cosplay would you create?
I am not a fan of so giant costumes, so a smaller budget is always enough for me to create my costumes. I do not want to spend so much money on a costume that I wear only a few times. I never spend more than $350 for a costume ^^. You can make lovely things out of a small budget.
What advice would you offer to those who are aspiring Cosplayers?
There are plenty of tutorials on how to create all kinds of things in cosplay on the Internet. If you don’t know how to make this or that, just google a tutorial and you learn it really fast ^^.
