Ho-Oh. Not really a person, but whatever.

• Who do you REALLY wanna cosplay as?
So. Many. Things.

• How many of your friends cosplay?
Uh. A good amount, haha.

• Have you ever walked around in public in your cosplay outfit?

• Have people in public ever recognised you and asked for photos?
Yep again!

• Have you ever made your own cosplay outfit?
I make a majority of them.

• When and where did you first learn of cosplay?
At my first anime con, Comic Arts & Anime Teen Expo (CAAT) (Fremont, CA) 2005

• What did you think of it then?
Cool, looks like fun!

• What do you think of it now?
Ugh, so much work. Still fun though!

• Where do you usually cosplay?
Conventions and gatherings

• Have you ever done a cosplay skit on stage?
Hmm. Once a long time ago, but it was pretty embarrassing. Not because I don't like performing, just the skit itself was embarrassing.

• Have you ever won a prize for said skit?
Never for a skit, but I've won awards for construction.

• Do you plan your cosplay outfits waaay before you're meant to wear them?
Well yeah, otherwise they'd never get made.

• Have you ever been to a convention and cosplayed?

• What is the best thing about cosplay?
The creativity and social aspects.

• What is the worst thing about cosplay?
The elitism and cattiness that comes with any hobby, especially a visual one like cosplay.

• Why do you cosplay?
I think I like the creativity and problem-solving skills the most. Plus, getting stopped for photographs at cons makes me feel like a celebrity. All in all, it's just good fun.
