Q: What has been your favourite cosplay?
My fave so far has been Light Yagami from
Death Note, even though I'm a girl. It was awesome to be evil
for a while :D I had so much fun gelling my hair right, it took forever
to do it however.
Q: Most memorable moment whilst cosplaying?
When I was cosplaying as Light, my
friend had dressed up as L and we made a pair of
handcuffs that L chains to Light and himself (proper
metal ones with a chain). My friend was
dragging me all over Waterstones book shop
and I had to keep on diving to get out of peoples
way as I was being dragged round haha ^^
Q: Have you had any cosplays go wrong/encountered problems
whilst making cosplays?
Only making the costumes
look real. I hate the kind of cosplays where
the material it is made of looks too bright, and it
just looks cheaply made. And hair - hair is
the biggest problem i think. To me, wigs don't
cut it, so if I am doing a cosplay, I'll grow out my
hair/cut it/dye it, whatever, just to make it look
realistic. But it can take a lot of time D:
Worth it in the end though :)
Q: Have you ever regretted cosplaying?
Never. It has
always been great fun, especially if you're doing it
with some friends :D
Q: Have you ever done group cosplay? If so how did you find
I've done about 2 group cosplays overall. The one I
mentioned before, as Light and L, and another where a group of my
friends and we dressed as neko (cat) girls and wondered around town all
day :) That was great fun, got some strange looks and a few whistles,
but overall, it was worth it just for the experience.
Q: What cosplays are you planning?
I'm planning a Rikku cosplay from Final Fantasy X
and a Misa Amane cosplay as well for this year (Although I don't like
her that much I wanted to do something from the
Death Note series XD). I can't wait to start making the
costumes, its the best part :)
Q: Do you have a dream cosplay?
Probably Fayt Leingod or Sophia Esteed from Star
Ocean: Till The End Of Time. It's my fave game of all time,
and I Love fayt :) It would be perfect, but it's more a case of time and
money to make the costumes. I'll get round to it though, I'm sure ^^
Q: Do you have one piece of advice that
you would give to cosplay virgins?
Don't worry about how you look. If you think your hair
isn't right, or you might be a bit to tall/ big to play that person,
whatever, it really doesn't matter. All that matters is the spirit
of the cosplay :D its about having fun :3
Q: Do you have an account with the website
Cosplay Island/other social networking sites?
I don't actually, I really should. Once I get a few more
pictures of my self in cosplay, I'll probably sign up to one :P
