Inside Look of Cosplay
Cosplay is a unique aspect to the comic and other fictional world where “cosplayers” dress as their favorite characters. There are tens of thousands around the world and I had the great opportunity to interview on of my favorites to get an inside look at cosplaying.
1. What age did you get into cosplaying?
I’ve started cosplaying in 2011, when I was 15 years old, but until 2013-2014 I didn’t take it seriously.
2. What was your favorite cosplay you have done so far?
I’m not sure, I’m between my Wonder Woman, or Jinx from League of Legends, Leblanc Ravenborn, from League of Legends or Valeera from Wow. These are my favourites, but I still don’t have any cosplay I consider “perfect” at all.
3. What’s your favorite and least part about being a cosplayer?
Well, I have 2 things that I really love about being a cosplayer: First of all, I love the cosmaking part, when you see a design of something or a character you love and you just need to start working on it, and all the steps to finally finish the cosplay.
And the other, is when you arrive at the con with your new cosplay and you share it with people who love the same things as you, and you meet wonderful people.
The thing I like the least about it is sexism. I think that many girls still suffers this kind of things, being judged by how much skin we show, or if we are more or less fans than men.
4.What are your long term goals?
Well, I’m not sure, I’ll just keep improving and learning things. Maybe I’ll work in some other event, or I’ll go as a guest somewhere. That would be great. Just improving my self step by step.
5. Is there anything about cosplaying many people don’t know about that you would like to share about it?
Well, we don’t do things “for likes” as many people believe, we just make things because we love the character, the design, or because we are in a cosplay group with friends.
And also, I like the way we are like a big family, I’ve made a lot of amazing friends thanks to cosplay. So, join the dark side!
6. What characters can we expect to see from you in the future?
Well, I have MANY of them right now, I don’t now how many of them I’ll finally finish but I’m sure that I’ll learn and enjoy a lot with them.
Some of them are: Kasmeer from Guild Wars 2, Soraka Star Guardian, from Lol, Mercy pool party (I would really love to make a pool party with all my friends this year again) Maybe Zero Two. Starfire… and a lot more haha.
