ElectroCosplay, this is your week in COSPLAY SPOTLIGHT!!

Why do you cosplay?

I cosplay mainly because it’s a form of showing how much you like a character. It’s fun to be able to feel more connected to a character you identify with, and it’s also fun to bring them to life in the real world.

What was your first cosplay?

My first costume was Aqua from Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep.

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 crafting process depends on what I have going on in my real life but usually I would say around a month since I’m still learning the technics.

Who is your favorite character to play?

My favorite is Hatsune Miku. I like how she can be anything the song writer wants her to be, it feels like she is also a cosplayer taking any role that is necessary depending on the occasion.

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

Asides from Vocaloids, I think I would say games. My first costume was from a game and I have one that I’m currently working on that is also from a game.

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

I didn’t make this mistake because I was warned before doing it, but I know many people don’t get that warning. If you are making any cloth based costume from scratch, make sure you washed the fabric, some materials shrink when washed and you don’t want that to happen when the costume is finished.

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

It depends on the person and how they feel comfortable in certain types of clothing, some people might like the extremely sexy look and cosplay as that would be easy for them, but others might not like that.
