Who is your favourite person to cosplay as?
England from Hetalia!
I just love his character too much >3<
Well, and Izaya. Although my cheek hurt like hell after the shoot.
Who do you REALLY wanna cosplay as?
Hmm. I have a really long list of to-be-cosplayed. 8D
How many of your friends cosplay?
80%. I'm just too otaku to have IRL friends.
Have you ever walked around in public in your cosplay outfit?
Conventions and Shoots, yup.
Have people in public ever recognised you and asked for photos?
Haha yup, espcially classmates who never seen my cosplay face before!
Have you ever made your own cosplay outfit?
I used to really hate sewing. Like UTTER DETEST. I think I swore I will never sew before.
But now, my sewing machine is like my husband.
What was your favourite cosplay experience?
Hmm, well to me every event/shoot is a 'favourite' day of the year/month/week, it's the only time I get to totally indulge in something I love and forget about any school/work. The excitement before and during the event is something really unforgettable.
What is your worst cosplay experience?
I guess cosplay at Harumi. It wasn't the event, but our super unplanned and last min rushing. Our Magnet headphones were done at 11am in the morning, it look about 1 and 1/2 hours to get to harumi, 6 degrees crazy wind blowing your wigs and skirt all over the place, and 3 hours of daylight to shoot 2 series and yeah a missing fake nail. PFFFT.
When and where did you first learn of cosplay?
I was looking for anime to watch actually, then I stumbled upon cosplay pictures on the internet. Wikipedia then cosplay.com and Sgcafe.
What did you think of it then?
Hmm, as a 15 year old girl I remember it was something along the lines of "OMG SO COOL WTF I WANT TO DO IT TOO."
Right, and that was 5 years ago.
What do you think of it now?
As I grew older and got more seriously involved in cosplay, It's not just pose-smile-get photo anymore. There's a lot more work behind it and sometimes it gets so tiring.
But I still don't regret my decision of falling into this pit against all odds!
Where do you usually cosplay?
Hmm, Recurring cons are Cosfest, I think this year is my 5th cosfest. (06 I went in some random loli PFFFT)
Have you ever done a cosplay skit on stage?
Have you ever won a prize for said skit?
Well, if you count going to Korea, yes. <8D
Do you plan your cosplay outfits waaay before you're meant to wear them?
I still have my first few cosplay plans when I was a 15 year old in progress, so yes.
But there are always times when the event is 3 weeks away and we just choose something easier to cosplay, but it turns out to be so much more difficult to do. HAHA
Have you ever been to a convention and cosplayed?
Ever have something terrible happen to your outfit?
I must emo at this question.
I once, accidentally overheated my iron, and as a n00b went to directly iron it onto my costume.
Result: A big ugly burnt patch and no costume for the convention.
The costume still sits in my wardrobe because I feel sad throwing it away.
It was my Shugo Chara Amulet Angel costume. -cries-
What is the best thing about cosplay?
From choosing the character, getting all the wigs, materials and going to the event, having fun and getting pictures!
What is the worst thing about cosplay?
Oh the drama about the never ending unneccessary self-conducted comparisons.
Why do you cosplay?
Because I'm a dellusional otome who would like to one day find a way to transport myself into the 2D world.
I cosplay a character because I really love that character.
Borderline obessive desire to be like the character?
I really want to create images that express the feeling of the series and I try my very best to make sure I can portray the emotion that character has.
It's like creating a fanart, only that the media is cosplay.
I realised I like making cosplay lists. Pfft.
I shall make another at the end of this year.
