Cosplay Spotlight: Hillasaur


Hillasaur, this is your week in our COSPLAY SPOTLIGHT!!

Why do you cosplay?

I like to cosplay because its fun, specially making the costumes and props. I enjoy making the props a more than anything. 😀

What was your first cosplay?

Saya from Blood+ is was very simple. I had the skirt and shoes, so I modified a shirt and made the sword.

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

I make my own costumes and props.The time it takes to make a costume varies on the costume, if i’m making a full armor and working on it every day it will take about two weeks, but if a work on it on and off it will take months. Usually the amount of time I spent is a month on each costume.

Who is your favorite character to cosplay?

My favorite cosplay would be Pit from SSBDD because I had so much fun wearing it. Unfortunately I dont have many pictures of it.

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

Video games. I find it easier to relate to a character that I’ve played as.

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

Be careful around hot glue guns. Painting shadows and light in props and armor can make a huge difference 😉

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

For me is easier to make a school girl costume than anything else. But I don’t like many school girl characters D:
