Why Do you Cosplay?
“I cosplay mostly for the fun of bringing different characters to life. I’ve always loved the idea of fantasy and dressing up; so the fact that I get to bring these characters to life means the world to me. Being involved with theater is also a huge part as well.
I cosplay for the fun of it as well as the occasional skit competition. I just love the idea of being another character for a while, from getting photos done, to the panels, to the making of the friends; everything.”
When you hear the words ‘Cosplay Community’ what first comes to your mind?
“What first comes to mind when I think of the cosplay community is the people involved. Such a fun loving group of people. What I love most about it is how quickly friends can be made through cosplay. Life long relationships can be built and I think that is wonderful.”
“Who inspires you?
“I have a lot of cosplay sempais. Everyone listed is someone I have come to know on a personal level as well. Each has Facebook and Instagram pages except for RH+. They’re only available on Instagram. Scream Queen Cosplay, LilinMira Cosplay, ZeroSins Cosplay, Kuro Shiba Cosplay, Kiba’s Cosplay, Chibi Leopard Cosplay, RH+ Cosplay, Zezzie Cosplay, Ari+Wolf Cosplay.”
“Do you have any goals you wish to share?”
“I have several goals. But the one I want to share most is the goal of wanting to stop bullying in the cosplay community. It’s sad to know how toxic this community has become over the course of several years.
This makes me cry and I want people to know that anybody can cosplay no matter who you are or what you look like. It doesn’t matter as long as you’re happy. You are the only one who needs to approve of your cosplay. So just do it. And have fun with it!”
