Q: What has been your favourite cosplay?
It would have to be a tie between
Inu Yasha and Kaname (from
Vampire Knight). Inu Yasha was just so
well-recognised when I cosplayed him, plenty of
people wanted pictures and would come up and speak
to me. With Kaname, it was more the feeling of
being in a suit and getting other peoples attention
with it. People really seem to like how nice
the Vampire Knight uniforms are in general and I
really enjoyed the feeling of it myself.
Q: Most memorable moment whilst cosplaying?
Again, another tie. There
was the first time I did my Cooro (from +Anima)
cosplay, I was waiting in the line for the
MCM London Expo in May 2008 to open, and a bunch
of people came up for photos, immediately
recognising the character, despite being from a new
series. I even had someone come up just to hug
me for doing that costume!
The other would be back in the Kaname cosplay.
I wore it to the
Amecon 2008 ball and it went down really well,
for someone who is generally nervous when it comes
to meeting new people, I danced with quite a few
people that night.
Q: Have you had any cosplays go wrong/encountered problems
whilst making cosplays?
I cant say I've had cosplays go
wrong themselves. I'm a little forgetful and
there has been a few times that I forgot key parts
to a costume, such as the necklace/collar that
Inuyasha wears, or the wig for my Kaname cosplay.
As for making the costumes, that does have its fair
share of problems. For one, I don't have a
sewing machine so I cannot do pieces very quickly.
The biggest problem I generally have is trying to
accurately get the shape of a costume piece when
putting it together.
Q: Have you ever regretted cosplaying?
I don't see any reasons why I
would regret cosplaying. I'm sure my wallet
would argue about that, but I really enjoy doing it
and I doubt that I'll stop anytime soon!
Q: Is there a particular theme to your
I don't think I really have a theme that I follow.
I just generally look for characters or costumes
that I think would be fun/interesting to do.
Though I suppose I do generally stick to simpler
costumes at the moment
Q: Have you ever done group cosplay? If so how did you find
I haven't done a proper group cosplay. I did an
Inu Yasha pairing as I mentioned earlier, but it wasn't too
different from cosplaying on my own at the time.
I suppose a larger group cosplay would be more interesting, especially
when I see the little skits I've seen groups perform around expos and
such, like the various Final Fantasy character battles.
Q: What cosplays are you planning?
I have a few cosplays I'm planning to do right now.
At the moment, I'm focusing on Senrei from +Anima and the Baron
The Cat Returns.
I also have a few original cosplays planned right now, but those aren't
my main pieces for now.
Q: Do you have a dream cosplay?
One of my dream cosplays at the moment is probably Chrono
from Chrono Crusade, but in his demon form. He looks so
cool, but it looks a little complex for me to do at the moment.
Q: Do you have one piece of advice that
you would give to cosplay virgins?
yourself into making a cosplay
with more simple costumes.
It is best to build your skills
up before making more complex/extravegant
costumes, that way you can learn
from any mistakes early on.
Also, be more open when in
cosplay. I think cosplay
can bring the best out in
people, so you have to be ready
to enjoy it no matter what!
Q: Do you have an account with the website
Cosplay island/other social networking sites?
