What was your first Cosplay experience?
My first cosplay experience was a closet cosplay of Eiri Yuki when I was in middle school. I wore it to Otakon back in 2006 I believe. It consisted of my brothers’ clothes and a horribly cut blonde Party City wig.
How long have you been Cosplaying?
Since 2006 I suppose.
Who or what inspired you to take up Cosplaying?
Seeing beautiful Japanese rockstars like Gackt and Miyavi, along with the cosplayers from Japan.
If you had to pick a favorite Cosplay you have worn, or have seen someone else wear, what would it be?
My favorite so far would have to be my Odin Sphere’s Velvet. I loved this character and she had been one of my dream cosplay for quite some time.
If you had unlimited funds and resources, what Cosplay would you create?
That’s a tough choice! Either Angewoman from Digimon, Claire from Claymore, or Gwendolyn in her Valkyrie outfit from Odin Sphere!
What advice would you offer to those who are aspiring Cosplayers?
My advice would be don’t take cosplay so seriously that it stops being a fun hobby. Have fun with it and let yourself be creative. Don’t hold back from cosplaying a character you love, and make sure to make new friends within the community. You never know who you will meet!
