Self-introduction of the Cosplayers

Amy and I have been together for a year and 6 months, and we love doing couples’ cosplay! We live in Colorado in the United States, and both go to college here. Amy is a graphic artist, and I am a Japanese and History major. Our couples cosplays include Axel and Roxas from Kingdom Hearts, Rin Sohma and Hatsuharu Sohma from Fruits Basket, Kurogane and Fai D. Flourite from Tsubasa: RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE, Riza Hakweye and Roy Mustang from Fullmetal Alchemist, Lily Evans and Severus Snape from Harry Potter, Alice Cullen and Jasper Hale from Twilight, and our in-progress costumes include Sanada Yukimura and Date Masamune from Sengoku Basara, Azula and Zuko from The Last Airbender, and Temari and Shikamaru Nara from Naruto.

Cosplay Performance of Rachel and Amy’s:

Rachel Key and Amy Crawford

Comments from the Cosplayers: Axel and Roxas from Kingdom Hearts were our first cosplays together. In fact, I met Amy because I was looking online for an Organization XIII Cloak for Roxas. We have many different versions of them, all of which can be found on our DeviantArt pages.

Comments from the Cosplayers: Kurogane and Fai D. Flourite were our summer projects for our local convention in September. Both of our costumes took so much work, including the props! My coat and staff took some long hours, and Amy had to attach lots of red to her outfit, as well as make her sword. We have one video up for them on youtube.

Comments from the Cosplayers: Fullmetal Alchemist was what got me into anime, so I was really excited to get the chance to cosplay from it with Amy. Amy likes Mustang because she loves people who have a fire affinity (Axel, Zuko, Roy). I like Riza because she’s just a badass.

Rachel Key and Amy Crawford

Comments from the Cosplayers: Amy wanted to do these two for the last two Harry Potter premieres, so even though I didn’t have any strong preference for Lily I ended up getting the costume together. However, since watching the movies and re-reading the portions of the Harry Potter series with them in it, I’ve come to love this couple as well. We have 3 videos for them up on youtube.

Rachel Key and Amy Crawford

Comments from the Cosplayers: Rin Sohma was always my favorite character from Fruits Basket, so when we decided to join a group I chose to be her. Amy had wanted to be Kyo, but she decided that for the group she would be in a couple with me, as Hatsuharu Sohma. I think she pulls him off really well, it’s on of my favorite costumes of hers.

Here is a simple interview:

Q: How did you know this contest? Is it easy to join in or do you have any advice for it? Since there will be many other contests held here, which theme do you most expect to see later?

I saw someone on deviantArt who I watch enter it.

Q: What’s your favorite cosplay theme? And what’s your best cosplay performance?

Pretty dresses, Temari from Naruto is the only onstage performance I’ve given.

Q: What do you think about cosplay? Share us something good and bad on this performance art in your opinion.

The good is that it’s very fulfilling, and super cool. The bad is all of the time and money it takes to make it perfect.

Q: We will be interested in knowing some difficulties you met while cosplay. And how did you overcome them?

Learning how to make costumes was the hardest part, especially props (I already knew how to sew, basically). I got help from many online sources and from friends who had previous experience.

Both of us have been cosplaying since 2007. We met at a photoshoot and have been best friends ever since. Cosplaying holds a special place for both of us for different reasons.

Self-introduction of the Cosplayers

Kuri: Well, she is a lot of fun to cosplay with and we both understand and feel for the cosplay as well as the pictures. I have been cosplaying for a long time and Alexis just started but it helps. We learn from each other. We try our best to bring the character to life, as well as being ourselves.

Alexis: Its always so much fun taking pictures together either in or out of cosplay, and I’ve been trying my hardest to make her proud.

Here’s a simple interview:

Q: How did you know this contest? Is it easy to join in or do you have any advice for it? Since there will be many other contests held here, which theme do you most expect to see later?

A:
Alexis: From Kuri. Sure? I’m not really sure, but anything will do.
Kuri: A friend on my facebook linked me to it. Easy to join in? Honestly, half and half. Its easy to place a submit, but not easy to have a perfect picture and or one you think will win. Um..themes I would like to see in the future would probably be Yuri themed. Along with emotional expressive themes with cosplay.

Q: What’s your favorite cosplay theme? And what’s your best cosplay performance?

A:
Alexis: I like cosplaying darker haird character and demon like themes. Sebastian from kuroshitsuji
Kuri: Favorite cosplay theme is probably couples. Its always fun to cosplay with my partner. I think my best cosplay would be Miku Hatsune. I love doing her makeup and face it, I love her pigtails.

Q: What do you think about cosplay? Share us something good and bad on this performance art in your opinion.

A:
Alexis: I love getting dressed up and expressing myself in different characters. I gained experience over the past couple of years and I am really proud of myself. It is fun and meet new friends.
Kuri: I think its a great way to experience the world and everyone in it. Its fun to be someone else for a change and meet new people with the same interests. Well, the bad thing about cosplay is money. It is a very expensive hobbie. Also, there will be lots of other people cosplaying the same person as yourself, so there tends to be a lot of judging when it comes to ‘the perfect cosplayer’ and or ‘perfect person’. The good thing about cosplay is that you gain experience points along with new and even maybe best friends. Along with boosting your self esteem.

Q: We will be interested in knowing some difficulties you met while cosplay. And how did you overcome them?

A:
Alexis: CONTACTS! A friend helped me out all the way through and I am happy she did.
Kuri: Some difficulties I met was working the sewing machine. It always seems to break and or malfunction on me and it gets annoying sometimes. Also, trying to find the right fabric and or knowing that the fabric you want is out of stock. Many other things. Well I asked a lot of people and friends, went on forums, made phone calls, just trying to see what everyone else thought, because most of the time, they are usually the right way to go.

Couple Cosplay Contest – AmaraSama and Dennasaur

Tumblr amarasama dennasaur-rawr
Self-introduction of the Cosplayers We each began cosplaying at different times, and finally met officially in 2010. Near the end of 2010, our friendship became more (so much more ), and we began couple-cosplaying together–as a real couple. We each make our own cosplays, occasionally helping one another with the other’s props, wigs, etc. Choosing which characters to cosplay together is easy because we click so perfectly.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Cosplay Performance of Miche and Jackie’s:

AmaraSama and Dennasaur

Comments from the Cosplayers: This photograph was taken by AmaraSama’s brother on our 6-month anniversary. We began dating as Kairi and Riku (AmaraSama asked Dennasaur out at a cosplay event), so it felt right to cosplay them again at this point in our relationship and take some commemorative photos.

AmaraSama and Dennasaur

Comments from the Cosplayers: This photograph was taken by Amara’s brother on the eve of our one-year anniversary as a couple. The same cosplay event just so happened to land within a day of our anniversary, and it seemed appropriate to don Kairi and Riku once more for the event. (We later changed into formal attire as Kairi and Riku based on a cute fanart we found.)

AmaraSama and Dennasaur

Comments from the Cosplayers: Alois and Ciel are one of the pairings we are most known for. Dennasaur already had a Ciel cosplay finished, while Amara had not yet completed Alois. She rushed to do so, however, in order to surprise Dennasaur on New Year’s Eve last year (2010-2011). Dennsaur was very pleased (her reaction was caught on a video, which can be seen on Soaring Visions’ YouTube (Soaring Visions is the cosplay group Den and Amara run/are part of)), and Amara has been causing her “trouble” as Alois ever since that night! [♥]

AmaraSama and Dennasaur

Comments from the Cosplayers: Our most recently completed cosplays. It has been a dream of Amara’s for over ten years to have a group with which to cosplay from Yu Yu Hakuksho. We watched it together, and when Den instantly fell in love with the series, my dream began to come true. [♥] I have always wanted to be Kurama, and since Dennasaur immediately picked Hiei, we became “partners in crime” in a more literal sense. ;3

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Here’s a simple interview:

Q: How did you know this contest? Is it easy to join in or do you have any advice for it? Since there will be many other contests held here, which theme do you most expect to see later?

A: I (Amara) saw a friend post a link to it. It is relatively easy to join, though I had a little difficulty figuring out how to contact you at first. Anything cosplay-related. We look forward to the next contest/theme, whatever it is! :’3

Q: What’s your favorite cosplay theme? And what’s your best cosplay performance?

A: Couples’-cosplay in general. So far, I think we are most proud of our Yu Yu Hakusho cosplays. All of our convention Masquerade/Cosplay Contest performances have gone well, in our opinion. [♥]

Q: What do you think about cosplay? Share us something good and bad on this performance art in your opinion.

A: Cosplay is an amazing way to express ourselves and be creative. Good: we love meeting new people, making new friends, and finding fellow fans of the series we cosplay from. Cosplay is how we met and fell in love with one another. Bad: one of the only negative things we have to say about cosplay is regarding the drama other people sometimes cause. There is stress in finishing a cosplay project on time, but the relief and the good feelings we get from the accompliment(s) makes it all worthwhile.

Q: We will be interested in knowing some difficulties you met while cosplay. And how did you overcome them?

A: Learning a new skill (like sewing) always has its difficulties here and there; we overcome them through perseverence–and the love of cosplay.
