What is cosplay to you, and how did you get started?
I started cosplaying at Genki when a friend pulled me along to my first convention. I had heard a lot about cons and cosplay, but had never gone before. The accomodation and the friendliness made me realize that this was where I belonged, and I haven't stopped making costumes since. Cosplay is about the craft for me, and the moment you put on a costume for the first time at a convention, looking in the mirror and not recognizing yourself. That is the best feeling!
What is your most memorable cosplay experience?
NCC 2017 where I won second place and crowd favourite. My boyfriend and a realy good friend where there with me and we did it together as a team effort. Without them I would have never made it. It was a fantastic experience to have with them!
Have you been to J-Popcon before, and what are you looking forward to the most?
I have been to J-popcon a couple of times. I look forward to seeing all my friends and having a great time with them as we always do.
