IMG_0217

Look y’all, it’s Jono in this week’s COSPLAY SPOTLIGHT!!

Why do you cosplay?

I cosplay because I love to celebrate the characters I love and to protray them. Its a fun life style for me.

What was your first cosplay?

My first cosplay ever was Elizabeth Midford from Black Butler she is adorable.

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

I buy mine. Because I simply do not have the talent to make them (lol). Even if I tried, I would have the patience.  I still put the same effort into obtaining them.

What is your favorite character to play?

They’d have to be Mizore from Rosario+Vampire, and Chie Satanaka from Persona 4. The reasons for Mizore is just her quiet and stalkerish personality girl (LOL), and she uses ice moves which are my favorite attack types. With Chie it’s an off character for me to like, because i normally wouldn’t, but theres this cuteness i cant get over. =^.^=

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

Definitely anime and JRPGs (japanese role playing games). The reasons are for both is strong character development and strong story lines.

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

I would have to say if you’re not in cosplay, I wouldn’t recommend asking for hugs. Sounds silly, but cons are big for that. Just be yourself. Also don’t get over-the-top friendly cause it could be considered creepy. Wear wig caps lol.

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

Yes, oh Lord yes! My Chie and Mizore are the easiest cosplay I do. Compare to Elizabeth Midford, there a cake walk Elizabeth’s dress isn’t a big issue, it’s her wigs! To be short, yes there are, it also depends on the individual person.
