1. Why cosplay?
I’m new to cosplaying. Sunday’s are so boring and is usually ruined because of the thought of another dreaded Monday.
Me and my friends have decided to attend the LU event and wear my costume. Anyway, I guess people cosplay because it really gets them excited for the con (Choosing who to cosplay as, gathering all the materials needed and making the actual costume and props). Cosplay is like gaining a new identity, I’m actually quite shy, but when I’m cosplaying I can be whoever I’m cosplaying as rawwwr !!! Great for making new friends too and it’s just plain FUN !
2. When did you start?
I enjoy wearing Halloween costumes, when I was a kid, I always wanted to be a badass hero lol. So I guess that’s how it started rawwr !
3. What or who have you cosplayed before? Any favorites?
Well Dark Angel was actually my costume for halloween events(is there any other option for me? unless a stripper costume counts ?) hahaha
4. Any new game or anime character you are eyeing to cosplay soon?
There are too many choices, but only selected few that I can pull of and I’m not particularly concerned cosplaying a specific character for now.
