What was your first Cosplay experience?
Well, my first cosplay was Shannon from Umineko no Naku Koro ni… I bought it on eBay. I didn’t know even how to buy there, I asked everywhere for an help. x)
How long have you been Cosplaying?
I guess it’s been 4 years… But I’ve started to sew my cosplays on my own since 2013!
Who or what inspired you to take up Cosplaying?
A friend of mine inspired me, it was his 1st cosplay too. We just wanted to try to make a couple. Well, we actually hadn’t a couple because of so many problems, but I must thank him because he made me know this awesome world!
If you had to pick a favorite Cosplay you have worn, or have seen someone else wear, what would it be?
Well, I guess I have LOTS of favorite cosplay worn… I should tell you two of them.
The best character made (talking about crafting spells) is Yellow Heart from Hyperdimension Neptunia; My favorite cosplay, because I just love the character, is Lightning Farron (well, it’s a good cosplay too.)
If you had unlimited funds and resources, what Cosplay would you create?
Hell, don’t make me dream like this. x) EVERYTHING ON THE EARTH–nope, I’m just kidding, heh. I guess I would create Cosmocrator Lightning… I guess it’s my meta. x) It’s really too difficult for me.
(I accept helps and I can pay you with milk and cookies. :3)
What advice would you offer to those who are aspiring Cosplayers?
I would just tell you to ENJOY yourself and if you want to improve your craft spells, you have just to try and look at who is better than you!
