Cosplayer Interviews – Akira Manami

Having cosplayed 12 characters including Kairi, Sasuke Uchiha, Usagi Saitou, Black Goth etc and having a lot of new cosplay ideas in future, Akira Manami, who is also known as Patricia Anne, is absolutely a devotee for cosplay. It seems like everything she shares with us in her profile is interesting. For example, she will want to cosplay a certain character once watching an anime or manga. But planning frequently, she doesn’t always act, XD. While being asked with her favorite genre of music, she just answered “it depends with my mood”.

Yup! They really do! My Mom and Auntie make some of my cosplays! And every time I go to a convention/photo shoot, they go with me! :33

Cosplayer Interview – Celine

Today, Celine joins in our interview section. She is a cosplayer from Malaysia. Just starting cosplay for a short time, she has already shown us lots of excellent performances. As a cosplay newbie, she deserves applauding actually, XD. Now, let’s share her story.

1. Please Introduce yourself first
Hajimemashite, minna-san!! I’m Celine, or also known as Ayami in Deviantart. I’m 17 years old going on 18 in two months and i’m from Malaysia. Whenever photographers or others come up to me to ask for a photo and my name, they would start recognizing me more when i mention my surname *laughs* it’s a little unique. And also because i look different in different cosplays, i tend to be in character when i cosplay, just for the fun of it (excluding when my friends are around. impossible to be in character with them around).

2. What does cosplay mean to you?
What does it mean to me? Hmmm, well. For starters, cosplay actually opened me up. Unusual, but true. I used to be shy, REALLY shy and had low confidence level, but ever since i started cosplaying, i’ve been more daring, more friendly and i never had any problem in my oral tests/presentations! *embarrassed laugh* Cosplaying also means bringing life to 2D characters. I love the feeling of seeing my favorite anime character coming to life, especially when that certain cosplayer manage to portrait them perfectly!

3. What was your first cosplay?
Kuran Yuuki (note ‘Kuran’. Her vampire version :D ) !! I absolutely LOVE her. I couldn’t let the opportunity past when i first met my cosplay partner and she introduced me into the world of cosplaying. I had her costume commissioned from China, a little difficult though, because i had to convince my mom to let me.

4. Does your family support your cosplay?
They do! I remember coming home from a cosplay convention in full costume, unaware that my aunties and uncles were visiting, and instead of showing negative attitude, they were in complete awe and kept praising me! Even my dad was genuinely smiling ear to ear.

5. What is your most memorable cosplay experience?
There’s too many to decide! But I have to say it was during 2010′s Comic Fiesta, the biggest event of the year in Malaysia. I was cosplaying as Hatsune Miku, Sandplay of the Singing Dragon version and was walking around looking for my groupmate (i lost them when i stopped to chat with my friends, the event was fully packed! @_@) when i was approached by this famous Singaporean cosplayer, Kaika, for a photo!! I was absolutely stunned!

That event was of 2 days, Saturday and Sunday. And i was a little disappointed that it was scheduled in the middle of the most important exam for every 17 year old Malaysian student. My parents forbid me to go! But i just couldn’t pass this event, so i did a little sweet talking and manage to convince them to let me go :’D Me and my other friends cramped into one of their houses, and while they were all fixing wigs, last minute changes to costumes, playing my friend’s piano in a ridiculously annoying way, i was sitting on her bed cramming for my Monday paper *sigh* (i was in a different class from them, so while they finished theirs on friday, i had my last one on monday D: evil school.)

6. What are your 2011 cosplay plans?
Plenty, sad to say for my wallet. I’m already planning for characters such as Kagamine Len, C.C, Miki (vocaloid) and some others. Let’s just keep it a surprise and wait for them pictures to come out. *winks*

7. Do you make your costumes yourself or buy them?
I usually buy them from online China. Sad to say, but i suck at sewing! *pouts* But i’m ready to try it for my Miki cosplay. Her costume is simple, so it shouldn’t do much damage to my mental health. I really hope i succeed!! Now, i just have to find those cloths store…

8. Any other cosplayers you like?
To many to choose from!! From Japan’s Saya, Touya Hibiki, Kaname, Kipi, Arisa Mizuhara to Philippines’ Alodia, China’s Kucos and Korea’s Tasha. I just learn alot from looking at their cosplays!

9. Do some changes happen to you after cosplay?
Of course it does. I’ve made more friends that i usually did in school! *sheepish smile* I’ve started to sew (i’m actually making Cheese-kun -Code Geass- now), alter those loose costumes (never done it before) and it just gives me this challenge that others can’t give.

10. Any advices you wanna share with cosplay newbies?
Don’t be afraid to flaunt your costume to others. If you’re a first timer and am afraid to do it alone, grab a friend and ask a senpai! What about those people who talks and point fingers at you? Who cares ; you’re having FUN! Besides, you will be entertaining little kids *laugh* A little warning though, once you cosplay, you never stop.

A Travel to the Toronto Anime North Expo

Anime North is the biggest anime pageant in Canada. It’s held in Toronto once a year. As anime fans in other provinces like Quebec and border parts between America and Canada also join in, this expo has the largest scale. Besides, anime expos are also generated in Vancouver. But as it’s located in the west coast, fewer people take part in. Also, there are anime expos in California, whose scale is much larger than those in Vancouver.

In 2011, Toronto Anime North Expo had been held during May 27 – 29. Ticket is sold on from CAD 35 to 40. In most cases, ticket will be a little more expensive on Saturday because more activities are held on that day and the expo is held on a longer time. Below, photos taken on that expo are shared by a reporter. Now, let’s take a look and feel Canadians’ passion for anime and cosplay.

This time, most of participants came from areas nearby Toronto. Also, there are people who specially came from west bank of Vancouver or America. Lots of Caucasians are passionate. But their figures seem like less appealing. Thus, don’t excessively demand this. Most Asian cosplayers come from Southeast Asia. So just neglect their height. Although cosplay performance done by them are not as good as what Asian cosplayers do, they still set high standard for their costumes. Their passion is second to none. Except cosplay, there are lots of books. Then, enjoy these photos.

Cosplayer Interviews-Emily

This is Emily, also known as Kitara88 or Alias Takashi. Starting her cosplay journey in 2003, she won the very first award in 2006! In her deviantart gallery, fabulous cosplay pictures can be found. I was surprised by her “Hachune Miku harasses” cosplay the most. Ok, let’s welcome Emily and share her cosplay story together!

1. Please introduce yourself first?

Hi, I’m Emily but I usually go by my user name of either Kitara88 or Alias Takashi. I started cosplaying since 2003 and still counting!

2. What does cosplay mean to you?

It’s something special to me because it helps me break away from reality. Also it’s fun being someone else for the day ^w^;

3. What was your first cosplay?

My first official cosplay was Lulu from Final Fantasy X. It turned out alright and I had some help from my aunt. I didn’t own a sewing machine at the time so I had to sew everything. Bad idea for a newbie to start off with a complicated cosplay. During the convention, my cosplay started falling apart X___X;

4. Does your family support your cosplay?

One of my sisters supports my hobby because she says it allows me to be creative …. But my mother believes it’s a waste of time, space and money.

5. What is your most memorable cosplay experience?

Hard to say because I have lots of memorable cosplay experiences. I guess the most memorable would be winning my very first cosplay award in 2006.

6. What are your 2011 cosplay plans?

My plans are/were Hachune Miku from Vocaloid and Stocking from Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt. For Halloween, I am going to cosplay as Fear Garden Rin from Vocaloid.

7. I really like your “Hachune Miku harasses” Cosplay,could you tell me more about it especially the huge miku costume,it’s really funny~

I chose Hachune Miku because she is rarely done and I fell in love with her hilarious expression. Mascots usually receive the most attention and they are usually popular during conventions. I tried to make my cosplay to resemble a giant plushie doll to make it adorable. It took a lot of time to make and it was really hard to move in but seeing/hearing people reaction was worth enduring that sauna suit.

8. Do you make your costumes yourself or buy them?

I make them myself. I buy certain parts if they are available like pants or bracelets. No necessary to make pants if it’s available. Unless it’s not sold in stores, I will make them from scratch.

9. Any other cosplayers you like?

I have several cosplayers that I like. I admire PikminLink and Lord Masamune, their cosplays are absolutely amazing. I also admire my friends and their cosplays but there are too many to name ^^;

10. Do some changes happen to you after cosplay?

Thanks to cosplay/cosplaying at events, I got to meet many wonderful people and became friends with them. I also tend to feel more outgoing and happier when I’m cosplaying.

11. Any advices you wanna share with cosplay newbies?

I say start off with a simple cosplay first. Don’t dive into a complicated cosplay at the start (like I did). Do lots of research on the outfit and character. Remember to have fun! :)
