CF. How did you get into cosplay, who did you portray first, and why?
AL:I got into Cosplay when I was in grade school. I didn’t know it was called Cosplay until I hit middle school. Back then I portrayed Mars from Sailor Moon because she’s my favorite. I use to mimic a lot of things from DBZ, Ronin Warriors, and Gundam Wing as well. Lol
CF. What’s the best part of cosplay?
AL:The best part of Cosplay is becoming one with that character after you put of the costume. I feel that way every time. Their attitude, motion, actions, the way they talk and pose, I mimic all of that to a T.
CF. If you could be any super hero or villain who would you be and why?
AL:I would just be Catwoman, she’s not really good, or evil. But I love how she dress, and how she’s so sassy.
CF. If you could meet anyone in the world dead or alive who would it be and what would you say to them?
AL:I would love to meet Steve Burton because he’s the voice actor of Cloud Strife from FFVII. I also loved him in Young & The Restless. I hope he will show up to a convention I go to as a special guest, because I would ask him to do a dialog with me from Advent Children. ^//////^
CF. What’s your favorite sci-fi movie and what captivates about the plot?
AL:I love the movie Carrie. What grabbed my attention was the story about a girl who was the odd man out and not accepted by anyone. The best scene from that movie was when she got to Prom.
CF. What’s the craziest thing a fan sent you or requested?
AL:I never really had anyone request anything crazy lol
CF. What sidekick would you hire to be your personal assistant and why?
AL:I would hire my friend Brandon Reed because he’s actual my manager and he makes sure things are in check.
CF. What character intimidates the heck out of you, why, and when will you attempt take the challenge to portray them?
AL:KOS-MOS from Xenosaga. It is one of my favorite games. (⌒▽⌒) It intimidates me because her outfit and props are so extremely complex. But it is my #1 dream Cosplay I will achieve sometime in the future when I can get the materials I need.
CF. Do you know a lot about the series you cosplay?
AL:I sure do, because most of them are from my favorite series.
CF. What’s your favorite comic con to attend and what makes it so special?
AL:I haven’t been to a comic con, but I’ve been to quite a few anime conventions. My favorite one out here is Youmacon. (＞人＜;)
CF. What comic con’s are definitely attending this year?
AL:I’ve never been to comic con before, but any of them would be great to attend. Especially the biggest comic con in the US.
CF. What’s one thing you wish fans wouldn’t do?
AL:Hmm that’s a hard question. Maybe use content from a Cosplayer without giving that person credit.
CF. Who was your favorite character to portray and what rocked about it?
AL:I love Tifa Lockhart from FFVII (The main reason why I changed my last name) she is my all time favorite character. Not only we look a like but I connect strongly to her. And putting on her Cosplay for the first time made me become one with her. (＞人＜;)
CF. How do you keep cosplay fun?
AL:Just making new friends in general. Just everyone coming together with the same common interest and passion Is how we all keep it fun. (⌒▽⌒)
