Interview with Bleach Cosplay Contest Winner Michelle Garcia

1Two contests related to Bleach cosplay and Axis Powers Hetalia fanart were held last month and this is the interview with one of winners – Michelle Garcia. Congratulations, Michelle and huge thanks for accepting our interview :D !

Michelle will be sponsored with the Bleach Gin Ichimaru Arrancar Cosplay Costume. Later, she will share us her photos with the costume worn. Let’s expect ~~

1. Since cosplay becomes more and more popular, how do you think about the good things and also bad things on this performance art?

A: Well I think that cosplay is good because it helps you understand the character you portraying. I feel that there is no bad at this performing arts :D !

2. Do you consider yourself a “cosplayer” year round, or only when participating in certain activities?

A: I consider a cosplayer year round because I go to many cons and expos in the years also go to festivals to cosplaying :D .

3. Going to a venue with many people to watch you in costume and simply taking a photograph, which one is more meaningful?

A: To me going with many people to watch not only me but other wonderful cosplayers is meaningful to me :D what would be the use of a photograph if you’re not there with friends that are also cosplayers :D .

4. Is the creation of the costume or characters more valuable than the actual acting or vice versa, or is it a mix? As well, how much of the do-it-yourself mentality is admired? If someone just bought their whole costume, are they still a true cosplayer?

A: I personally think it’s a mix because even if you have a awesome costume you may not even know how to act the character well or you may know how to act well but the costume is horrible, so I think it’s more like combinding the costume and the character acting into one :D . To do it yourself mentality is admired if you know how to :D . I think they still are because even if they are new to cosplay as long as that person who bought the whole costume is indeed a true cosplayer :D .

5. Which contest theme do you mostly want to see at Miccostumes.com?

A: Bleach, Naruto, Kingdom Hearts, and Final Fantasy :D .

Sailing to the Moon

Gave you a little hint last month on my Pirate’s blog on what we will be reviewing today. If you couldn’t figure it out, we will be talking about Sailor Moon.

Not really one of the shows I watched regularly as it was more for girls. I did however catch it as it came on with my other ‘cartoons’ in the old days. This has some romance, but there was only one main male character. Luckily however, it is not a harem show as it dealt with the girls and their issues.

Our main character, Serena Tsukino, ends up meeting a cat. Not just any cat, but a talking cat named Luna (go figure). She ends up telling her that she is this great fighter of justice and she is needed to help fight against the Dark Kingdom. What we actually find out is that she was sent into the future by the Moon Princess to protect the Earth. Along with other Sailor Senshi (as well as our Male lead Tuxedo Mask) to help in the battle against these villains.

Besides the Sailor Moon, you also have the ‘Sailor Scouts’ which are named after each of the other planets – Sailor Mercury, Venus, Mars, Uranus, Neptune, Saturn, Jupiter and Pluto. This was before Pluto was classified not a planet anymore – but I digress. Now they don’t all come out together, but some are brought in as the show proceeds.

Now out of all these girls, there is only one other hero who just happens to be a male character. I guess you need a ‘masked magician’ to come to your rescue if you are in need. It is funny as he throws a red rose down to mark his entrance. Very romantic and mysterious – wooooo. You get the sense that there is a relation brewing and it does.

Now we switch over to the ‘Dark Side’ and look at the villains of the Dark Kingdom. They happen to be lead by Queen Beryl. They actually destroyed the old Moon Kingdom and want to insure they don’t come back. What they actually want to do is bring life back to Metalia. In order to do this, they need to suck the life out of humans using monsters that are summoned by one of her 4 Shitennou. Of course, Sailor Moon and company are here to stop them and save Humanity and Earth.

Even in the US, this has been a huge hit and merchandised well, but not as much as others. It is funny that I was walking in an Antique / Consignment store and actually found some of their merchandise. Even though this has pretty much ended, it is continually being revisited. There has been games and live action movies which keep this anime alive. I think it really was a great show that made girls feel empowered to be more than they were no matter the obstacles.

This group of characters has been heavily cosplayed for years and for good reason. Everyone wanted to be Sailor Moon as she was the lead. What made this great though, was that f you had a small group of friends, then you could as the team. This really got you some attention at any convention.

As for my next blog, lets just say it is a very famous singer that started only as artwork and a figure.
