1. What is your cosplay name?

Riddle Costumes.

2. Where are you from?

Born in Germany, grown up in the Netherlands, lives now in Germany.

3. How long have you been cosplaying?

Since forever, first “cosplay” (Cats Eye & Sailor Moon) with 6 years with a best friend without knowing anything of “cosplay”, really started with it in 2004, really doing cosplay “professional” with the needed materials and experience (so they don’t fall apart after wearing once) since 2009.

4. What is about cosplay that you like?

The passion of creating something that seems undoable, having fun making it (and having photo-shootings full of fantasy) and being on conventions with friends.

5. What is your favorite experience about cosplay?

In all those years of me cosplaying I have a lot of good experiences but there are a few involving people who do not know what we are doing and why but still came to us, spoke with us about it, asking questions of true interest and inviting us to eat and drink at their restaurant afterwards! And of course a lot of children seeing their favorite disney princess or villain or “a fairy” or what they like to interpret into it and smiling full of joy!

6. Outside of cosplay, what is your favorite thing to do?

Drawing children books & comics, designing fashion.
