Self-introduction of the Cosplayers

Justin is 24, and I am 20. We have known eachother for about two years, and we have been together for a little over one. We love to spend time together, and both really LOVE to dress up in costumes. So we definately enjoy cosplaying, but we usually can’t afford to get costumes. : (  I know he wants to do more, since we have only done it once, so when I found this contest I was sooo excited! I just love to make him happy, so I really hope we win this and we can do more stuff we enjoy together. ^-^

Comments from the Cosplayers: I have no comments for the pictures except for We really weren’t sure how to pose for the characters, and that when I showed up to get the pictures taken I forgot my gloves and necklace : ( and Justin forgot his rose….I was very upset lol

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
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 accidently came across it i think.
Yes, it was very easy to join ^-^ Everything about it was simple enough anyway ha.
I would expect to see a theme for just about all the holidays, like for christmas, take some in the snow, or with christmasy type backgrounds and such.

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

I don’t really have a favorite theme, and due to…funding issues I have only dressed up once. So my best/only performance was cosplaying Sailor mars, with my boyfriend as Tuxedo Mask.

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

I LOVE it. Seeing so many people come together to show off their skills in making costumes, or just to share their same interest in dressing up is soooooo fun!! Its a great way to make new friends and get out there and meet new people. On a down side, it does cost a bit too much to either buy or make your costume, which sometimes discourages people from participating. :(

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

I ordered a costume online by using their measuring chart, which I followed exactly, and when I got it it was about 2-3 sizes too large. : ( I tried to get it exchanged but all they said they could do was give me money back and let me order a new one. I didn’t have the time to do that, so I had to get the one I had taken apart and remade to fit me. Something good that came of that, is with the extra material I was able to create some pieces we were missing for the tuxedo mask costume : )

Couple Cosplay Contest – Rachel Key and Amy Crawford

Couple Cosplay Contest

Couple Cosplay Contest in February

Rachel Key and Amy Crawford

Bio of the Cosplayers:

Name Rachel Key Amy Crawford
Gender Female Female
Nationality United States United States
Deviantart wingedlight pineapplepanda
YouTube IsThatFlammable wingedlight
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.

Rachel Key and Amy Crawford

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.

Rachel Key and Amy Crawford

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.
