Q: What has been your favourite cosplay?
It has to be Kagami (from
Lucky Star - ed.). It was the first costume I put a lot of
effort into and the one that I enjoyed wearing the most. Kagami is
one of my favourite anime characters and as cheesy as it sounds, it was
so much fun 'being' her for the day. This is why I love cosplay.
Q: Most memorable moment whilst cosplaying?
corny so I have to say everytime I get recognised or
asked for a picture. I'm extremely self
conscious and shy out of cosplay, so the fact that
people like my costume so much they want a photo
makes me chuffed beyond imagination.
Q: Have you had any cosplays go wrong/encountered problems
whilst making cosplays?
Making the tail for
was hell. I couldn't figure out how to get it
to curl, then I had problems with getting it to stay
up... seriously, it was horrible. But a nice
cosplayer on deviantART helped me so all was
Q: Have you ever regretted cosplaying?
for a minute. Sure, I've had my frustrations
about lack of money/hard costumes/etc but I've never
wanted to quit!
Q: Have you ever done group cosplay? If
so how did you find that experience?
I haven't got to that stage
yet but I'm planning a Pokémon and Kuroshitsuji group for 2010.
Q: What cosplays are you planning?
I'm in the
process of planning a few cosplays for 2010, which include Finnian from
Kuroshitsuji, Sailor Jupiter from
Sailor Moon and Momiji from Fruits Basket.
Q: Do you have a dream cosplay?
I'd love to be able to cosplay as Neo Queen Serenity
from Sailor Moon. Her dress is so beautiful and it'd be
amazing to wear and make it. Maybe in the future... ^_^
Q: Do you have one piece of advice that
you would give to cosplay virgins?
Don't sweat it! Have fun, put as much effort as you can
into your costume and go for the wow factor. Cosplay is a great
way to make friends as I've found out, so be sociable. And
remember: originality is the key when it comes to choosing cosplay
