18. What is your best cosplay memory?

Oh man..I have to pick just one? I have had so many..Obviously the one I mentioned with the first cosplay question ranks right up there as a favorite moment.

But I think..the number one would have to be the year I wore the first manga coat to Otakon 2007. It was the same year I cosplayed Cain from Trinity Blood. Laura and everyone was late getting to the con and when we finally met up they were in their Yami no Matsuei costumes and I was just about to head back to the hotel to change out of Cain and into Fai. We hung out for a few minutes before it was time to get me to the hotel (me and my 3 handlers XD). I put on Fai and headed back to the convention center. I was waiting around the fountains when I decided to see where Laura and everyone was. As I was on the phone I saw a Kurogane start to come down the escalators and I just started to flip out because I never expected to see one. Well upon closer inspection..It was Laura XD I literally burst into tears because it was one of the greatest surprises ever. She had this big grin on her face and apparently EVERYONE knew that she was making this costume, except for me. Even Corey and other con friends knew. I was just like...WTF, how did you hide that!?! So yeah, I gave her a big hug and was just a wreck from being so happy. Well of course that was the time we started to get bombarded for pictures and I looked like an absolute mess XD But was the best surprise ever.

Another one would be when I wore my manga cover Fai at Katsucon one year and one of the representatives from the company that was releasing Tsubasa got all excited and had to come over and give me a sneak peak at the new Tsubasa box set that they were going to be releasing in a few months. I have a lot of really good memories with the Fai coat overall..

Another big one would have to be our first Best in Show win..Nekocon 2009. I never in a million years thought a skit that I would write, plan and choreograph would win BiS. It was the most exciting thing ever. And then last year at AMA winning Best Overall Craftsmanship for the first time. I felt like maybe I had finally done something right XD

But I have a lot of really good memories with my friends and cosplaying and just hanging out. Every convention has at least one standout moment for me so I don't think I could ever pick my absolute favorite moment. I treasure every memory that I make at the conventions because they are my chance to hang out with my friends and the coolest people in this world.
