Stealing is fun! :P

~Cosplay Meme~

- Who did you first cosplay as?
My very very first cosplay ever was Nami from One Piece. It was kind of hellish. XD I basically spraypainted my hair orange, and it was dusting off on EVERYTHING all day long... plus my horribly fabric-painted shirt and skirt were... not... pretty. Oh, well--we all start somewhere! (This is of course if you don't count the fact that I was Sailor Moon for Halloween in 1996... LOL.)

- When and where did you first cosplay?
If you don't count that crazy little 9-year-old girl I once was who wanted to be Sailor Moon for Halloween, then, my first OFFICIAL cosplaying experience was at MTAC 4.01. I was seventeen years old then. (I'm 23 now.)

- When and where was the last time you cosplayed?
DisneyWorld on Halloween--I was Kuzco from The Emperor's New Groove. :D As for conventions, the last one I went to was AWA.

-Who have you cosplayed as in the past?
There's an easy way to handle this list...

One Piece Cosplay: Nami (original ver., first Water 7 ver., and one of the openings ver.), Luffy (Skypiea ver.), Robin (original ver.), Chopper (original ver.), Chopper-man, Shanks, Ener/Enel, Kaya, Merry, CP9 Rob Lucci (MANY times), Galley-La Rob Lucci, Galley-La Kaku, Paulie, Jyabura. That is sixteen One Piece costumes, guys. Holy shnikies.

Not One Piece Cosplay: Original Gothic Lolita ensemble, original sweet Lolita ensemble, Kiki (Kiki's Delivery Service), Mello (Death Note), Near (Death Note), Demyx (Kingdom Hearts), Kuzco (The Emeperor's New Groove).

- Who is your favourite person to cosplay as?
This is kind of an unfair question, since it all depends on what I'm into at the time. Proportionally speaking, I had way more fun as CP9 Lucci than I ever did in any other costume before or after that, but right now, I'm enjoying cosplaying Demyx way too much. :P

- Who do you REALLY wanna cosplay as?
Demyx used to be my answer to this question... XD; Um, let's see, now? I definitely want to cosplay Sora (the Kingdom Hearts one lol) someday, but that sounds kind of... nightmarish, too, so I don't know if I'll ever get around to it. Maybe I'll be kid!Sora from BBS? I also VERY much want to cosplay Inazuma from One Piece, but once again--nightmare. XD

- How many of your friends cosplay?
A few of the people I currently talk often to are cosplayers.

- Have you ever walked around in public in your cosplay outfit?
Sure, absolutely. Usually I'm going to Wendy's in these cases. :P

- Have people in public ever recognized you and asked for photos?
You mean in a not-convention situation, right? Nah, that hasn't happened, and honestly I'd be terrified if it did!

- Have you ever made your own cosplay outfit?
Sure, of course, but sometimes I have to get help if it's something crazy.

- What was your favorite cosplay experience?
I can't narrow it down to just one, but a handful of AWAs really stand out to me... my first AWA, of course, being the place where I met my fiance in person for the first time over six years ago. :) We were cosplaying Usopp and Kaya from One Piece; awww pairing support. <3;

- What is your worst cosplay experience?
I've had hell on Earth at anime conventions and I do NOT want to get into it here. Ugh the DRAMA.

- When and where did you first learn of cosplay?
From this shiny thing they call the Internet, back when I was about thirteen. The first cosplayers I ever saw online were Japanese Digimon cosplayers who were making out in most of their pictures. XD

- What did you think of it then?

- What do you think of it now?
I still love it, I wish I had more opportunities for it now that I can FINALLY afford it, and I wish more of my friends were into the same things I am at the same time so I could have a group again. I miss having a group. :(

- Where do you usually cosplay?
Conventions--AWA, MTAC, OMGcon, and one glorious time at Otakon.

- Have you ever done a cosplay skit on stage?
Not a skit, but I have been a walk-on cosplay contest contestant.

- Have you ever won a prize for said skit?
Not for a skit, but I won an award for my Ener cosplay at the first OMGcon.

- Do you plan your cosplay outfits waaay before you're meant to wear them?
Absolutely. And yet still, somehow, I end up finishing them in the hotel room/at my aunt's house/in a car somewhere the day before the con. :P

- Have you ever been to a convention and cosplayed?
Yes. o.O Belated question is belated!

- Ever have something terrible happen to your outfit?
MY PLEATHER MELLO PANTS. I squatted and they ripped right down the butt. If someone had had a video camera I'd probably be on America's Funniest Home Videos for that. :P

- What is the best thing about cosplay?
Being able to completely, fully, 100% dork out and not feel bad about it AT ALL.

- What is the worst thing about cosplay?
The stress and the drama.

- Why do you cosplay?
Because I like being creative and I love being a dork. XD

- What is your favorite part about cosplaying?
You kind of already asked me this. >>

- How long have you been cosplaying?
Officially, I'm going on year seven right now.

- How long will you continue cosplaying?
As long as there are still fandoms for me to dork about and conventions for me to get to.
