cosplay yet. Road Kamelot (from
D.Gray Man - ed.) is close though. It's so much fun to act
her personality and I've got loads of great memories from it.
My cosplays are getting better every time I make a new on though, so I
suspect my next one will be my new favourite ^^
Q: Most memorable moment whilst cosplaying?
Being alone on stage in front of
2000 people, singing Road's song for the cosplay
Desucon 3. It was the scariest, most
exciting and most awesome thing ever! Dancing
Hare Hare Yukai with my friends on that same stage
comes close too, and of course every con I go to is
an unique experience. Itís hard to choose the
best from such a selection of great memories ^^
Q: Have you had any cosplays go wrong/encountered problems
whilst making cosplays?
My keyblade broke while
I was cosplaying Halloween Town Sora at
Uppcon 09, and the wings were a pain.
Also, there are always some small problems with
costumes/makeup/props when running around at a
convention. Of course there are always things
on my cosplay I wish I had more skill to do better,
but I try to learn from every time I make a mistake.
Q: Have you ever regretted cosplaying?
Once, when we had a
cosplay hiking trip on the Swedish border. I
didnít bring any cosplays, because I wasnít sure if
the weather was going to be nice. I didnít
want to ruin anything, but when I got there I wanted
to cosplay so I improvised with some borrowed stuff
and some of mine. It looked horrible.
Iím more likely to regret not cosplaying though ^^
Q: Have you ever done group cosplay? If so how did you find
I think cosplaying in a group is a lot more fun, so I often
chose my costumes based on what series my friends are doing. If
not, I make sure to get to know some people cosplaying from the same
series before the con.
The biggest group I've been in was the Orgy:09, we were almost the
entire Organization 13 and most of the Kingdom Hearts 2
characters. It was epic! Going as a group gives the best
cosplay experience, in my opinion.
Q: What cosplays are you planning?
I have a lot of plans, and even more "I'm definitely
gonna do that sometime" costumes, but the one I have to focus on now is
CC from Code Geass. My next finished costume will probably
be Pikachu, also costumes from
D. Gray Man, Alice in Wonderland,
One Piece and Zelda are being planned. Usually, I put a
costume on my ďwant to cosplay-listĒ and see if I can find the time and
materials to make it, unless I need it for a specific con.
Q: Do you have a dream cosplay?
I don't have a specific dream costume, but my dream is
to make a costume that is a bit more complicated than the ones I've made
so far and make it good. It would be cool to be one of those
cosplayers that make people stare in awe at your costume...I still have
a long way to go for that though ^^
Q: Do you have one piece of advice that
you would give to cosplay virgins?
Make your own costumes, itís so much more fun. Even if you
canít sew (I couldnít sew at all when I started) you can get help and
learn. It is worth it. Even if you buy your costumes, you
should add a few personal touches to make it realistic.
Pay attention to detail, a few small changes can make a cosplay so much
incredibly better. Also, always bring needles, thread, scissors,
glue, paint etc. when going to cons, don't let a broken costume ruin
your day. Oh, and have fun ^^
Q: Do you have an account with the website
Cosplay Island/other social networking sites?
Iím at cosplay.com,
but itís usually not very updated. I use the page as a good place
for costume help and resources ^^
The most updated is my deviantART -
If you find someone named Theriza on an anime-related page, itís
probably me. Donít hesitate to contact me about anything at all.
