When and how did you first hear about anime and manga?

I started watching anime when I was a child. In early mornings, before I had to go to school, there were several anime on TV such as Salior Moon *laugh*

 For cartoons, I might have started to read when I was 5 or 7 years, maybe. Because I have 5 brothers and sisters, that all read cartoons, there were always a lot to choose from in my home.

What anime/manga made the biggest impression on you?

The most impressive cartoon for me was RG VEDA and Angel Sanctuary.

The stories are quite dramatic, plus the end scenes are not that happy. It made me cry loads because of that. 

What is cosplay to you and how did you get started?

When I began cosplaying, it was actually not from cartoons or animations, but from the Japanese rock badn, Dir en Grey. I cosplayed Toshiya, the bassist.

It started when a japanese friend of mine suggested that I started cosplaying, and I saw there was an event in Thailand. I just wanted to dress as the person I like, that's all - and my friends supported me a lot.

What is your most memorable cosplay experience?

Um.. maybe competitions. In the past when I attended numerous cosplay competitions, I did not intend to win the contest. I just wanted to spend time chilling and having fun with friends that had similar likings. We just started to do stuff together and these are very memorarble and precious memories to me.

What would be your dream costume to make?

I want to create real wings which are able to fly!! *laugh*

Are there any specific cosplayers out there you hold in high regard?

I do not have an idol but I admire people who cosplay seriously and try very hard to BE the character they cosplay. Also focusing on details of the character, because that for me really shows the love and appreciation for the character or story.
