List up to 5 previous costumes you’ve done
- Sora (Kingdom Heart II)
- Sin (Guilty Gear 2 Overture)

What does cosplay mean to you and why do you love it?
I grew up as a musician, manga artist and model builder with the love of expressing myself through the things I create. To me, cosplay is a genre of creative art where I can enjoy all my hobbies and skills at the same time. I love cosplay because it makes me different from the people at work (lol) and gives my life an interesting touch of fantasy and excitement (and stress, but no love for the stress :P).
What we can expect to see from you at the Grand Final?
Hmmm~ Expect a side of me that I have never brought onto a cosplay stage before. I’m wishing for it to be a showcase of everything I’ve learned and taught myself over my 2 years of making cosplay, and why I love cosplay not only as a costumer but as a musician, artist and performer.
