(I just thought that this would help a bit.)

1. What was your first cosplay? (Think hard on this)
I don't have to think hard on it. XD My first was Toboe from Wolf's Rain. It was the night before my first con and I was supposed to be going as L from Death Note. We bought hair spray (great idea, right?) to make my hair black and gel to make it stand up. (Another great idea, since my hair holds nothing, regardless if gel is used.) The spray not only spelled horrid, but it got everywhere and, needless to say, my hair was the same color it had been before we sprayed it. I wanted to cosplay really badly. I didn't know a lot of anime at the time and my favorite one was Wolf's Rain. I picked Toboe as my natural hair color is close enough to his and my hair was the right length, so styling it wouldn't be too bad. My parents went out with my that night and I bought all of the clothing from walmart. My grandma lent me the bracelets. I was at the con the next day. XD 
Toboe, as bad as he might have been, was special to me. I still have one of his bracelets as my grandma gave it to me and I ware it everyday. I never really realized how fond of a memory he was for me.

2. Did someone get you into cosplay? Or on your own?
In all honesty, I don't know if I can recall correctly. I think it was a bit of both. My friends were into anime and they got me into that. The first cosplay I was going to do was supposed to be fore a skit, so they needed the character and I was gladly willing to fill in the gap. I have a bad memory, so I'm just guessing here.

3. What is your favourite cosplay?
Thinking about it and looking back on all of them, it's still my beloved Emil. The first cosplay I ever made and one I'm still very proud of. I learned how to sew with him and he brought me supper close to my grandma. I feel really close to Emil as a character and I find that I can relate to him really easily. The costume means a lot to me and to my grandma. He's my baby and always will be, even if I don't wear all that often anymore. 
I remember making him, too. It was so hard and such a pain. I even bled on him once. My grandma and I would have dreams about him and how much we hated the costume. We thought it looked horrid. However, we finished him; the day before the con. When we first looked at him on me, it was an amazing moment. He looked great, at least to us, and we were so very proud of him.

4. Which is your least favourite?
I think it would be Android 18. I threw her together to go as duo with one of my good friends. I haven't seen DBZ in years, so I didn't know her well and I thought that the cosplay looked bad. Plus, I had to use my real hair as I couldn't find a wig for her. I felt ugly in the costume. 

5. At conventions, do people compliment you on your cosplays?
Depends on the costume, but usually, yes. (More so in Noishe, of course. XD) 

6. How many have you done?
Oh geez, 16 finished, 4 in the making, and 1 to be finished when I feel like it. 

7. What are the top 5 on your list of "Want to Cosplay"?
This changes so much, so at the time of writing this:

1:  Byakuran- Reborn (With his wings.)
2: Madara- Natsume's Book of Friends (Quadsuit)
3: Nephenne- Fire Emblem 
4: Hinoe- Natsume's Book of Friends
5: Just about anyone/ any card from Cardfight! Vanguard

8. What female cosplay do you want to do most?
Nephenne from Fire Emblem. She was one of the first female characters that I actually ever cared about. She's been on this list for ages and will remain there until I get brave enough to tackle the art of making armor. 

9. What male cosplay do you want to do most?
Byakuran from Reborn or Madara from Natsume's Book of Friends. I love them both so much, though I'm not really ready for another quad with my current state of mind. 

10. What do you prefer to do, make or buy your costumes?
Make them. 

11. Your most memorable experience? What makes it so memorable?
I don't know. It's a hard choice.
I'd say it be the entire process of making Emil for reasons stated above, or when I entered, with Emil, in my first cospay contest. I didn't win anything, but it was an amazing feeling. Another one would be knowing how supportive my friends were at Ohayocon with Lumagrowl, they really made me feel like I wasn't alone. 

12. Your dream cosplay?
I feel like this has been answered a few times. I think it would be Nephenne, even though two boys beat her out on the list. I really like her a lot and Fire Emblem is one of my favorite games. I would love to cosplay as her. 

13. Is there a pattern in your cosplays? If so, what? (Things like they have a certain personality, or hair colour)
Yeah, gender, they tend to be males. XD On a more serious note, they tend to be a bit depressed, or dragged around easily. They also tend to have a light hair color, being mostly blond or silver. 

14. Your most recent cosplay?
Most recently finished would be Julio. 

15. What do you prefer? Cosplaying in a group or on your own?
I love cosplaying in a group, but I tend to cosplay on my own a lot due to my love for uncommon shows/characters/games.
