Phantom, this is your week in our COSPLAY SPOTLIGHT!!
Why do you cosplay?
The reason I Cosplay is for the people I meet who like the character I portray in costume, meeting lots of different people, having fun, and being admired by people at con who stop and want to take pictures with you.
What was your first cosplay?
My first real Cosplay was Haru from Rave Master.
Do you make your own cosplay costumes, if so, which ones, and how long does an average costume take to make?
Who is your favorite character to play?
My two most favorite characters to cosplay are Obi Wan Kenobi for Star Wars, and Kaito Kid from Detective Conan.
Amongst animation, comics, movies, or video games, what is your biggest inspiration for cosplay?
My biggest inspiration for cosplay would be pop culture. For me if I like the character enough I will try to cosplay as them, but mainly I have done Star Wars and anime characters.
Have you ever made any mistakes that you’d warn a first timer about?
The only thing I can say about mistakes is be prepared, because they will happen, but don’t let them get you down learn from them and press on.
Are there certain characters that are easier to cosplay as than others?
Yes there are and that all depend on what they are wearing like my gundam is going to be hard to walk around in so it won’t be the easiest to Cosplay.
