What got you into cosplay?
Loving a character to death is probably the main reason and I think that many probably agree with me here.
Simply giving life to them with all of their details (I love details!) and acting like it really is my motivation in fact. I cosplay characters that I think I share a bound with and that I can relate to.
The whole feeling of being THE character is very thrilling!
What was your first costume and why?
Raphael Sorel from SoulCalibur.
He is my favorite character from the series. I used to be a total fan of SC and since there wasn't a lot of cosplayers of this series, I've decided at this exact moment to chose Raphael.
What is your favorite costume and why?
I like them all by their unique touch, but I kind of have a very specific bond with Mario. Probably because I was a superstar [especially for children]!
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Zant from Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess.
I love the character, he is my top favorite from all video games. I didn't feel confident to start working on him at that time, something that will change for 2015, since my year 2014 will actually be busy about this one [yep, I'll do take one year and perhaps more to work on it]!
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
With Mario, hands down. Children were just so amazed and they thought I was the real one! I received so many hugs from them and even adults. Kids were so shy to come and ask me for pictures at first but as soon as I waved them and imitated my Mario voice, they turned so happy! I felt as if I was Santa Claus or something.
It was very fun and my Luigi partner can relate too!
Do you participate in masquerades?
I used to but I don't know if I'll continue. The whole thing almost turned out into a wild mean competition.
I prefer to think that cosplay is for fun, to make friends, to please/impress people with our work and not for competition but only to be proud of what we do.
What was your best masquerade experience?
The one I did at G-Anime 2010, in Canada. Me an my partner amused the public so much! We had sound problems and has I wanted to retire, the masquerade director told us to try at least something fast. In the end, we did a silent improvised sketch at the last minute and everything went really well. We won Best in Show for it!
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
-Best in show
-Best weapon props
-Most theatrical presentation
-Honorable mention for the makeup
Tell us a little about yourself
I am a passionate of dinosaurs and reptiles of any type. I also love scary and dangerous animals like sharks and crocodile. I find angler fishes creepily beautiful as well.
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
Don't taunt the crocodile before crossing the river.
