Cosplayer Of The Month Questions
Can you tell us about your first cosplay?
My very first cosplay was a female Daryl Dixion from TWD. It will probably always be one of my easiest cosplays I’ve ever made, I didn’t even wear a wig!
Do you have a cosplay piece that you are most proud of?
A cosplay piece I’m most proud of would definitely have to be my Sally Face guitar. The guitar is actually for the Guitar Band game that I thrifted!
What do you hope to achieve through cosplay?
The biggest thing I hope to achieve through cosplay is having fun and honing my creativity. It’s very easy to get yourself caught up in trying to look exactly like a character or comparing yourself/work to another cosplayer, I think it’s super important to remind yourself that having fun is the main point of cosplaying and to let your creativity out! I love seeing other cosplayers take a character and completely make it their own.
Is there a cosplayer that you look up to or inspires you?
A cosplayer I’ve looked up to for awhile actually just recently passed fighting a courageous battle of cancer, @koolyncos. She not only inspired me but so many others around the world. She put so much detail and effort into all her cosplays and it showed! She is dearly missed by so many and we will all remember the amazing impact she has had on the cosplay community!
If you could give any piece of advice to new cosplayers, what would it be?
Some advice I’d love to give to new cosplayers is to not get discouraged and practice. You ask any cosplayer what advice they give it’ll most likely be that! Another thing is you don’t always have to get the top quality or the most expensive stuff, when you’re just dipping your feet in it’s ok to use supplies on the cheaper end. Almost all my makeup is from Walmart and a lot of my costumes/props are thrifted. You can also find great sales at Halloween stores after Halloween! Of course there’s nothing wrong with buying costumes as well, just save up that birthday money!
What would you say is the hardest part of cosplaying?
The hardest part of cosplaying is hands down finding motivation to actually get into it!
In honor of spooky season, what are you being for Halloween?
This year for Halloween I plan on being a clown. It’s a little tame but in all my years of dressing up on Halloween and cosplaying, I think I’ve only ever done a clown once.
