Name: Sarah Davies
(a.k.a. kakashi_is_cute)

Q: When did you start cosplaying and how long for?

I started at the MCM London Expo in October 2003.  So I've done cosplaying for about 5 years now.

Q: What attracts you cosplay?

It looked like fun and a great way to meet people.

Q:  What has been your favourite cosplay?

I don't really have a favourite cosplay, any of my SNJ costumes really (SNJ - Sexy No Jutsu from Naruto - ed.).

Q: Most memorable moment whilst cosplaying?

Getting up on stage at one of the MCM London Expo events, as Chrono from Chrono Crusade, I was scared as hell but I was ok afterward. 

 Another memorable moment was going on stage at  MCM London Expo in October 2008 as SNJ Kakashi (from Naruto - ed.) that was great fun as I had loads of mates in the audience cheering me on.

Q:  Have you had any cosplays go wrong/encountered problems whilst making cosplays?

Yes every time I plan a cosplay it tends to go wrong, but I am learning from my mistakes slowly.  The latest thing to go wrong was my Nine-tails for Kyrubi (from Naruto - ed.) as had to sew the tails the night before and event and forgot the stuffing, so the tails were a little flat.

Q:  Have you ever regretted cosplaying?

The only thing I have regretted was not getting into cosplay sooner.  It's so much fun!

Q:  Have you ever done group cosplay? If so how did you find that experience?

No I haven't done a group cosplay yet but have on planned for MCM London Expo May 2009

Q:  What cosplays are you planning?

I am planning to do Hitsugaya Toshirou (from Bleach - ed.) soon. 

Q:  Do you have a dream cosplay?

I don't have one at the moment.  I've seen so many cool cosplays though.

Q:  Do you have one piece of advice that you would give to cosplay virgins?

Just do it!  Cosplaying is a great way to get to know people with the same interests as you.  Plus I meet my boyfriend at a cosplay event.  We have broken up now, but we are still mates which is great. 

Q:  Do you have an account with the website Cosplay island/other social networking sites?
