Cosplay Spotlight: Sinnocent

The not so innocent, Sinnocent is in this week’s COSPLAY SPOTLIGHT!!

Why do you cosplay?

I cosplay because not only do I love the artistic satisfaction of creating a full costume from scratch, but also because I love being someone else for a weekend. Sometimes you just need to forget all your problems and enjoy yourself, and what better way to do that than to dress up and act like someone else? Not to mention the fact that being in costume is a great icebreaker for meeting new people at conventions!

What was your first cosplay?

My first costume was Usagi Tsukino’s junior high school uniform from Sailor Moon.

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

Yes, I make all of my own costumes. The amount of time it takes to make a costume greatly varies though. I have over 30 costumes the last time I counted, and my easiest costume probably only took me around 4 hours to make, whereas my most detailed costume to date is the current one I’m working on, which is Eva from Record of Agarest War 2, and I’ve been working on it off and on for about a year and a half now.

What is your favorite character to play?

Oh that’s a hard question. I’m sure most people would guess it’s some form of Sailor Moon as that is what half of my costumes are, but actually I would probably say Tsukiumi from Sekirei. Tsukiumi’s costume is just soooo comfortable, but not so simple that it looks like I’m wearing regular clothes or a simple school uniform … it’s also very much my style. =P

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

Normally I would say anime, however I have noticed that my ‘planned’ cosplay list is getting filled up with mostly video game characters. So as of now I would still say anime, but within the next couple of years it will definitely be leaning more towards video games.

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

Oh god, I could write a book on mistakes for first timers XD The most common one is probably to measure like 100 time before you cut anything, it’s better for something to be too big (because you can always cut more off) than too small (unless you want some extra seams from adding more on, or just have to remake it).

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

If you mean personally due to my costumes, then yes, some of my costumes are extremely comfortable, while I have others that I can barely walk in, much less sit down or anything, lol. If you mean based on their personality or something, then no, I find it just as easy to cosplay any of the characters I’ve chosen, simply because I only cosplay characters that I love – and while they may be total opposites, I have my reasons and can relate to them in some way, so it makes it easy for me to portray them.
