Chiquitita is our newest COSPLAY SPOTLIGHT!!!!!
Why do you cosplay?
What was your first cosplay?
Do you make your own cosplay costumes, if so, which ones, and how long does an average costume take to make?
I make all of my costumes. I’ve been working as Costume maker and Designer and sometime have to fit in cosplays around shows so I’m always sewing something.
So far I have made Chii from Chobits, Asuka plug suit and yellow dress, Bulma Bunny from Dragonball, Aria from The Sacred Blacksmith, Super Sailor Moon and her Christmas outfit which I made for a little music video I did at Winter Wonderland.
I’ve cosplayed as Kuroyukihime from Accel World, Lia de beaumont from Chevalier d’Eon. I’ve also done some video game cosplays such as an Elementalist from Granado Espada, Celes Chere from Final Fantasy VI and Karin Kanzuki from Street Fighter Alpha 3.
I did She-Ra at Kapow and I’ve done Wonder Woman and Supergirl from DC,
and I also recently did Shamrock from Marvel’s Contest Of Champions for St. Patrick’s Day which was really cool because as far as I know I’m the first person to ever cosplay her!
As for how long Cosplays take for me to make, it all depends on what I’m working on, for example Karin took me 2 days to make as it’s rather simple and Kuroyukihime took me 1 month on and off as it has much more work involved.
What is your favorite character to play?
Amongst animation, comics, movies, or video games, what is your biggest inspiration for cosplay?
I enjoy all sorts of genres. It’s what characters inspire me, like when watching an anime, playing a game or reading comics. Anime and manga was a big part of my childhood growing up in Spain. When I moved to England to live I remember being sad that there was no anime on TV. My grandmas from Spain would send me video cassettes and mangas from Spain.
Have you ever made any mistakes that you’d warn a first timer about?
Are there certain characters that are easier to play than others?
I find Emma Frost and Wolverina harder to cosplay than Supergirl and Bulma because they are more serious characters and it’s the total opposite of me.
Not sure if it’s because I love Supergirl and Bulma so much but when I cosplay them it just comes naturally.
