1: What was your first cosplay?
Sailor Moon when I was around five or six. My mom helped me make a headband and stuff, I was really cute.
2: Favorite thing to cosplay?
Virus from Dramatical Murder, or Stocking from Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt
3: Have you ever been in a panel at a convention?
Nope! But it seems like fun.
4: How many people do you think you met because of cosplaying?
Oh god.. so many..
5: What do you think makes a ‘good cosplay’?
Having fun.. and a good wig.
6: Have a cosplay blog?
I’ve considered it. That and a Facebook page, but I don’t feel like it would go far.
7: Ever done a group cosplay?
The largest group has been Virus, Trip, and Sei with kimzeth and elemony. I’m trying to plan a bigger group for MetroCon next year.
8: Couple’s cosplay?
My ex-girlfriend and I have cosplayed APH Canada and fem!America as well as Cecil and fem!Carlos from WTNV. I’ve done ViTri too. We weren’t dating, but we joked around a lot. I’m also planning Clear and Aoba for AFO this year, Aoba and Noiz next year, and maybe Aoba and Koujaku.
9: When did you start cosplaying?
I started cosplaying seriously around my sophomore year of high school, so I guess 16?
10: Would you consider yourself good at cosplaying?
Yeah. I can put some things together, style wigs, and do make-up, and I think I look pretty good. People get excited to see me, so I guess I do a good job.
11: Which cosplay took you the longest time to make?
I want to say the black and white outfit for Virus. It has a lot of detail and I never spiked a wig like that before. It was annoying, but I think it really paid off.
12: Shortest time to make?
Cecil or Canada.. I didn’t have to do much for either of them.
13: Do you like Genderbent/AU cosplays?
Yeah, I think they’re fun. I’ve never done one personally, but I’m not against it.

15: Are you currently working on something?
They’re only in the planning stages right now, I haven’t started them.
16: Would you, if given the chance, cosplay at school/work?
I never passed up character day at school, and on Halloween I take full advantage of the fact we can wear costumes at work. I don’t cosplay anime or anything I can’t explain to work though.
17: Do any of your IRL friends cosplay?
Yee, the ones I did the ViTriSei group with.
18: What does your family think of it?
My sister thinks I’m a loser, but my mom doesn’t care as long as I’m happy.
19: Do you consider cosplay an art?
20: Have you ever had to get help with a cosplay?
When I made antlers my mom had to hold them at some points, but that’s about it.
21: Least favorite thing to cosplay?
Probably APH Canada. I’m cute as fuck, but the majority of the fandom here is just so obnoxious, and I don’t have the patience for a joke that has never been funny.
22: Ever been in a cosplay contest?
Noo, but I want to when I do Rhyme Ren and Usui.
23: First con that you cosplayed at?
MetroCon 2012, I think.

Making and wearing a character cosplay, not necessarily acting like the character.
25: Favorite tumblr cosplay ask blog?
I don’t have one.
26: Ever cosplay an inanimate object?
27: Who is your cosplay headcanon of your favorite character?
Who would my favorite character cosplay? Canada’s Naruto cosplay is canon, so there’s your answer.. But I would like to see Trip and Virus cosplay Dio and Giorno from JJBA because why not.
28: What is your 'Cosplay First Aid Kit’ (what you use to repair a cosplay)?
I actually bought a little travel sewing kit this year. It’s in a cute green case and has almost everything you need in it.
29: Would you go pro?
30: Who is your favorite professional cosplayer?
I don’t know if I have one, whoops.
