- What material do you use for your armors?
- How long does it take you to make a cosplay?
It depends on the cosplay! Sometimes a costume just takes me a few hours and sometimes over 100.
- When did you start cosplaying?
I started cosplaying in 2010 but back then I always had a lot of help from a tailor. Since 2013 I make most of my cosplays by myself.
- Why did you start cosplaying?
Since I was a child I loved watching animes and playing videogames. Someday I saw an advertisement for a convention nearby so I checked it out together with a friend of mine and we loved it! All the cosplays were so impressive and the people were so nice and then we decided that we want to make our own costumes. At first we just went to 1 or 2 conventions every year but after some time we did it regularly and also made our cosplays on our own.
- What’s your favourite cosplay?
Saber from Fate/stay night and Ruby Rose from RWBY!
- How do I make a *insert name here* cosplay?
Well… It’s always hard to start with a cosplay, you have to plan it and do a lot of research! I’m really sorry but I don’t have the time to tell everyone how to make a specific costume. If you have a special question about a small part of the cosplay or you need an advice of course you can contact me anytime! Please be sure that you send me a photo too! 🙂
- What advice would you give to a cosplay beginner?
It’s really hard to give any general advices. I don’t know what exactely you wanna know there are SO MANY aspects about cosplaying and I don’t even know where to start, so please be a bit more specific!
All I can say is never give up, even though some things may not work out the first time – be patient and don’t start with the most difficult costume! Just start with an “easy” cosplay and then learn more about different materials and techniques! Practice makes perfect!
- Do you take commissions?
If I have the time yeah! But just for accessories or props, not for whole cosplays! Just contact me if you have something in mind!
