An Interview with Miss Taurus Cosplay
What city are you based in?
Tell us a bit about yourself!
My name is Kathia, I am also known as Miss Taurus Cosplay and I have been for 8 years. I love designing my own characters such as mashups or original characters. I earned a Bachelor's Degree in Fashion Design & Merchandise. I took the skills that I learned from school and used it to create cosplays. I have has won 17 awards.
Throughout the years, I have gained skills and techniques, and would love to share what I know with the world!
How did you get into cosplay?
I got into cosplay through my Fiancé. I didn’t have any idea what cosplay was, until we went to our first convention (MEGACON Orlando). I was dressed up as Cynthia from Pokémon and I started to love cosplay. So here we are!
Do you have a cosplay piece that you are most proud of?
Yes, I do. It’s a helmet that I made from the game Spyro the Dragon. It’s made out of WORBLA and it’s a heavy piece to wear but it came out great!
Your Glaceon cosplay was amazing! How did that come about?
This is based on my original design and my take of Glaceon from Pokémon. I incorporated Samurai elements to this costume and make it unique, which its called now Samurai Glaceon. Overall, this was more of a surprising built and went ahead to create this costume. I never would have thought of this cosplay coming out this good. I was actually impressed with the results.
What was it like winning Best in Show at MEGACON Orlando?
Winning Best in Show was surprising. There were a lot of great costumes and amazing cosplayers. I was very happy and humbled. I was pretty much in tears about winning such a big title in front of a big crowd. I am thankful for the support!
