Q: What has been your favourite cosplay?
My favourite cosplay has been L from
Death Note. While his outfit was nothing special, and I've
done more extravagant outfits, I think that L's characteristics are the
fun bit. As I said before, it's not just about the outfit, it's
about being on the same level as your character. He is more
interesting that other characters I've done.
Q: Most memorable moment whilst cosplaying?
Well I haven't debuted as a
cosplayer just quite yet, but so far, the most
memorable part has been the triumphant feeling of
completing my first costume!
Q: Have you had any cosplays go wrong/encountered problems
whilst making cosplays?
I tried to cosplay as Daisuke Niwa
D.N.Angel, but my main problem with that was
my wig. I tried to cut, I tried to style it,
and everything failed miserably, so I gave up after
a bitter fight. My friends told me the wig was
fine, but I'm a bit of a perfectionist when it comes
Q: Have you ever regretted cosplaying?
Not yet. My friend and I
dressed up in our cosplay outfits at college to get
some photos taken, (I was Cissnei and she was Reno -
Final Fantasy VII & Crisis Core), but then
she lost her phone, so we had to run down to the
college reception to pick it up. Since it was
our first time actually wearing our outfits (we were
both first-time cosplayers), we felt incredibly
awkward, and the stares from the passers-by weren't
helping! So yeah, I felt really embarrassed
then, but after about an hour, I began to feel much
more comfortable in my outfit.
Q: Have you ever done group cosplay? If so how did you find
I haven't done a group cosplay yet. Not many of my friends
are into anime, and out of them, only one of them enjoys cosplaying.
I guess that you could call me and Sarah's Cissnei and Reno cosplay as a
group one, because we were doing the Turks!
Q: What cosplays are you planning?
For my next conventions, I'd love to cosplay as Light
Note), Rikku (Final Fantasy X-2 version), Seras Victoria
and possibly Krad (D.N.
Q: Do you have a dream cosplay?
My only dream cosplay would be to portray Death Note's L in
the perfect way. I'm building myself towards that. Whilst
I'm taking pride in my Cissnei cosplay, L is my main outfit, and if
there are any other L cosplayers, I want to stand out from them.
Q: Do you have one piece of advice that
you would give to cosplay virgins?
Put your heart into what you're
doing. Try and put
yourselves in the shoes of the
character you're portraying.
