Cosplay has complicated things. It was hard for me to learn makeup. I never knew how to use makeup in my life. At first I did not use anything. But over time I accept that he did my job much better.
Another thing that I do not like is that many fellow cosplayers tend to feel superior or better. This is a hobby for me and I always seek to give love and affection.
Who is your favorite character to cosplay?
Now my favourite character is Super Sailor Mercury
IF YOU COULD LIVE IN OR VISIT ANY FANTASY WORLD, WHERE WOULD YOU GO?
The place I would like to meet is Brakion, the continent of the game “Soul of Ultimate Nation” by Webzen. This game was my first online. I loved every centimeter of that videogame. The beautiful epic scenery, its meadows, its ruins. Seriously I love that game.
Probably I would have been a lonely Shadow who visited the beautiful cities of Etherain and Tringel. My house would be in Aukra.
I still remember with nostalgy when they finished the Soul of the Ultimate Nation in America.
Where do you get your inspiration for your cosplays?
My inspiration is always the Humanity of the characters. The fragility of Wander of Shadow of the Colossus, the sweetness and humility of Amy Mizuno. I like being able to show the emotions of each character.
WHAT ARE YOUR “FANDOMS”?
I’m a fan of the Harry Potter world. I admire the Witcher saga a lot, especially his books.
My favorite anime genre is the Magical Girl. Weapons, superpowers and make up. They are a mixture that give more flavor to my days
WHAT IS SOMETHING YOU WISH BEGINNING COSPLAYERS KNEW?
I believe that the world of cosplay is a world of love. A world of art and that our work is to bring art, magic and happiness.
I love it when I see another cosplayer in a character that I admire a lot. And it’s amazing to be surprised and excited. I love those fan moments!
WHAT TIPS OR TRICKS DO YOU HAVE FOR OTHER COSPLAYERS?
I think that more than a trick I can give you some advice: Always believe in yourself and love what you do. It’s not about perfection alone, it’s also about the heart …
WHAT IS SOMETHING YOU WISH NON-COSPLAYERS KNEW?
We are artists. We love what we do and that is what makes us happy.
WHAT COSPLAYS ARE YOU WORKING ON?
Now I have several projects. I do not like talking about my future projects, it’s my habit. But I will say that with my friend Ryuko (@ryukosancosplay) we have an idea about Saint Seiya and with my friend Saturn (@ tomoe.h.kun) we have several ideas. Some magical and others more Evangelion …
With Sailor Boys we always have many new projects and challenges.
