My plugsuit is probably one of the best costumes I have made so far. I am really proud of hard work I put into making it. Rei is one of my favorite characters (and I am a huge Evangelion fan) and it was always one of my dreams to make her plugsuit. I first made it for Kumoricon 2011. I ended up being unable to finish them and cosplayed the injured version. The first version of the suit did not look very good. There were a lot of mistakes made and I never did the sleeves. I ended up fixing and completing them for Sakura Con this year.

I won Kumoricon's Best Novice Group costume award with Shaynii as my Asuka.

The fan reaction from the costume was pretty intense. I think this cosplay is mainly why my fan base grew so much. I also got to meet more Evangelion fans and make new friends because of the attention I got.

I got into cosplay because I am half Japanese and was born in Japan so I grew up with Japanese pop culture in my life. It's one of the main reasons why I was introduced and influenced to cosplay/conventions when I was in middle school. I got invited to go to Sakura con 2008 so that was my first convention and my start of this amazing hobby. I love constructing all of my costumes and showcasing them in photos, videos and contests. Cosplay is a way for me to show off my hard work, creative talent, craftsmanship and my love of characters. Its also something that is really fun and sometimes should not be taken so seriously at times!

I have been making my own costumes about five years now.
