Cosplay Spotlight: Bossbot


Bossbot is running things in this week’s COSPLAY SPOTLIGHT??

Why do you cosplay?

I cosplay for the sheer fun of expression, and the chance to learn more about sewing. I get to make and wear clothes I would never normally wear, and become someone else for a day. I love cosplay because of the long term goals I have set because of it, and I enjoy my hobby more and more as my talents grow and expand.

What was your first cosplay?

My first real cosplay was Kagome Higurashi from Inuyasha. It was a nightmare made three days before my first convention back in 2006.

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

I make most of my own costumes. On average, if I work on it straight through with no interruptions, I can easily get a costume done in a week or two if it’s just sewing.

Who is your favorite character to play?

That’s a tough one, I have a lot of characters I enjoy. But I guess if I had to choose, it would be a close tie between Yoko, Erza, or Ariel.

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

My main inspiration comes from anime and animation. I’d say about 75% of my costumes are from anime.

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

Oh definitely. I’ve got a myriad of “oopsie”s, namely: Learn about fabrics and their physics. Oh and don’t try to sew sheers onto the shiny side of satins. It is slippery and you will swear. A lot.

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

Definitely characters who are cockier, or have more of an attitude and confidence. I have a lot of trouble portraying cute characters, or incredibly elegant ones.
