Why Do you Cosplay?

“I cosplay to make an audience smile. The best feeling is to see a child come up to you and stare in awe as they believe you are the real character. It really brings a smile to everyone when they see a character they love brought to life. Plus the process of creating something is very rewarding, there is always something new to learn and try out, cosplay is limitless.”

When you hear the words ‘Cosplay Community’ what first comes to your mind?

“The cosplay community is a place where everyone is welcome. We all come together from different backgrounds and life experiences to celebrate our love for cosplay and pop culture. It’s a place where people should feel safe and accepted no matter who they are.”

“Who inspires you?

Malindachan (@malinda_chan) has been my senpai for as long as I remember. Her wigs are amazing and I constantly try to learn as much as I can from her tutorials. She inspired me to give Yami Yugi a try and without her tutorial, it would not be possible. So Malinda if you ever read this, thank you for creating amazing cosplays, you are a genius and I hope to reach close to your level someday. Please keep up the excellent work.”

Do you have any goals you wish to share?

“A lot XD. I love making armor pieces but I know it gets very expensive. If I had the funds and time I would say my goal one day is to make a Monster Hunter cosplay.”
