Learn about Marc “Knuckles” Carter, a new star in our COSPLAY SPOTLIGHT!!!!!
Why do you cosplay?
The reasons why I cosplay is because I love to challenge myself, especially if it’s a complicated character that I want to develop. Also I cosplay to satisfy the fans, I always get a good feeling when someone comes up and say that they love my character or talk about the anime/video game that I’m from. Sometimes they even act as if I was the actual character and they would ask questions like “Why did you do this in episode 3? Or why did you have to die?” so it’s a funny feeling. And I also cosplay to be competitive. I love entering into competitions and compare my cosplay with others.
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?
What is your favorite character to play?
My favorite character to cosplay so far is the Red Ranger from Mighty Morphin Power Rangers since it’s such a classic and everybody has either seen or known about the original Power Rangers. I have received so much attention and commendation from other cosplayers and congoers, I felt like it was a total success.
Amongst animation, comics, movies, or video games, what is your biggest inspiration for cosplay?
My biggest inspiration for my cosplays has to be the storyline behind the character. Whether my character is from an anime or video game or tv show. Usually if the character has a deep background that i find fascinating (like if he is a misunderstood villain turned hero, or a respected leader of a group of famous heroes, or one who wants to avenge the death of his father) I find those stories touching and I usually end up cosplaying as that character.
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?
