Ronin Blade Cosplay, this is your week in our COSPLAY SPOTLIGHT!!

Why do you cosplay?

I cosplay because of the feeling of accomplishment you get from finishing a costume and the way cosplay in general breaths fun and happiness to the the people around.

What was your first cosplay?

Kenshin Himura from Rurouni Kenshin.

Do you make your own cosplay costumes, if so, which ones, and how long does an average costume take to make?

To be honest I am just now getting to the point where I can mostly make my own. I’ve had lots of help from friends and family. But, I still feel pride in wearing them.

Who is your favorite character to play?

Kenshin Himura from Rurouni Kenshin.

Amongst animation, comics, movies, or video games, what is your biggest inspiration for cosplay?

I do not have any particular preference really. I always try to cosplay a character that has a design that pulls me in or a character that speaks to me.

Have you ever made any mistakes that you’d warn a first timer about?

Always measure properly and think ahead. It will save you a lot of trouble.

Are there certain characters that are easier to cosplay as than others?

All my costumes up to so far have their pros and cons. But, Kenshin is still the easiest to wear and portray. Though I’m still wary of escalators, haha!
