What got you into cosplay?
When I was younger, I always liked to dress up as my favorite characters.
So when I found out there were conventions in my country where people often cosplayed, I decided to make a costume and give it a try.
After my first convention I was hooked on cosplay.
What was your first costume and why?
A little sister from bioshock 2, I loved the franchise and I thought little sisters were adorable. Since it didn't seem to be a very difficult costume to make, I figured it would be a good start.
What is your favorite costume and why?
Pharaoh Atem, because it's the first costume where I made everything from scratch. I'm really proud it turned out this well and I'm especially happy that my second attempt at this wig was a huge improvement.
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
Not really, I just cosplay the characters that I like the most. But I do hope to become more experienced in making costumes so I can make more 'difficult' costumes later on.
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
The amount of positive responses to my Shiro costume.
When I made this costume, I thought people would have no idea who I was suppposed to be, because the anime didn't seem that popular.
Turns out Deadman Wonderland has more fans in Belgium than I thought, so thanks to my costume. I was able to make friends with many people who also liked the series.
Do you participate in masquerades?
I've been in a masquarade once with a friend, which was nervewrecking but fun. I also remember helping out a group because they needed some extra zombies for their skit.
What was your best masquerade experience?
The mood backstage was nice. You have to wait for a while so you can have some smalltalk with people there.
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
No, the one time I competed was more for fun than to actually win something.
Tell us a little about yourself
I'm in college, studying German, Dutch and English.
I have no hobbies but I like dancing and gaming.
I spend my time watching anime, reading manga, studying, surfing on the internet or working on my cosplay.
