What got you into cosplay?
I had always liked alternative fashion. So very quickly, I became aware of japanese subcultures. When I discovered cosplay, I knew it would be perfect for me: when I was younger, I always wanted 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 love this video game and I thought little sisters were adorable. And 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 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?
I love Deadman Wonderland, which is why I cosplay Shiro. When I cosplayed her, I didn't expect to be recognized at all because Deadman Wonderland didn't seem that well known in my country.
I was surprised when a huge amount of people took pictures and told me they were glad someone finally did a cosplay of her. Shiro turned out to be my most popular costume and thanks to this cosplay I made a lot of friends who are also huge fans of DW.
Do you participate in masquerades?
Not really at the moment, I participated in a cosplay catwalk once and once I went on stage to help out another cosplay group by playing a zombie. I haven't done a real skit myself, but I'm planning to participate in the near future.
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.
