Cosplayer Interviews-Living Ichigo

Today,SSJ4Theo join in our cosplayer interviews, he made the best of best Dragonball goku cosplay and Ichigo cosplay I ever seen , amazing cosplay! I will contact SSJ4Theo to see if we have chance to promote the costumes from Miccostumes.com in the near future.:)

1. Hi SSJ4theo,thanks to join in our interviews,so please introduce you first.
I am known as Living Ichigo to my fans. I am a professional cosplayer, model and bodybuilder. I have cosplay about 20 different cosplays varying from several forms of Ichigo from Bleach, Grimmjow, SSJ Goku from Dragonball Z, Gilgamesh from Fate/Hollow Ataraxia, Jecht from Final Fantsay 10 and many more cosplays.

2. You have got many rewards in different anime conventions, so how did you get started in with cosplay, what was your first cosplay?
My first cosplay was Ichigo Kurosaki Bankai Vizard form. When I first began, I was very out of shape. I noticed that Ichigo was muscular and lean. That’s when I decided to dedicate myself to training. I wanted to become as close to him as I could.
3. What has been your favourite cosplay and share with us your new cosplay ideas in 2013
My favorite cosplay so far has to be my SSJ Goku cosplay, Goku is my favorite anime character. I have so many cosplay projects plans for 2013 its insane. To name a few I have around 5 New Dragonball Z cosplays planned for example SSJ3 Goku, also im going to cosplay as Kamina from Gurren Lagann, Zui from Zwei Soulcalibur, Nastu and Gray from Fairy Tail, a few Yu Yu Hakusho cosplays, and much more.
4. Describe your creative process for starting a costume through completion!
With any cosplay project anyone would have to figure out the best way to construct their cosplays. I normally pull up many reference pictures of the character im going to cosplay as so I can have a ton of pictures of the character to make sure when i make the cosplay it looks just like the character. Anyone can get materials to make their cosplays from any local fabric store, I normally go when theres a sale to save money because cosplay is an expensive hobby. Also the fabric stores may have the patter your looking for for the costume or making, otherwise you’d have to maybe look online for a tutorial on how to construct the costume or make your own pattern. As for armor and props you can buy materials for that at any craft store or online or even an hardware store, just depends what you will be props out of. Also for wigs and contacts those have to be bought online from wig and eye contact stores. Then my girlfriend “JoJo Pandaface” and I have to custom style our wigs for our cosplay.

5. What is the biggest learning curve you have learned about the hobby in the past years?
Learning to sew was hard at first but armor and prop making can be very difficult at times, especially if your not experienced at it. There’s a bunch of times where I was working on a project that I had to completely throw out and start from scratch again. It’s the process of learning, learn from your mistakes.
6. Tell us more about your Supper Goku cosplay ,I love this cosplay most, so any interesting wanna share? 
My Super Saiyan Goku cosplay has been my most successful and most popular cosplay aside from my Ichigo cosplay. Everyone loves my Goku cosplay and has been featured all over the internet. What sets my cosplay apart from others is how I portrayed my Goku cosplay. Not only did we construct a realistic wig to match Goku’s Super Saiyan hair but we also did some great makeup effect to add to the battle damage look. Id say the best part of my cosplay that sets it apart from all other cosplays is that I work out to be in excellent shape to cosplay the characters 100% accurately. Thats why everyone loves my cosplays caus of all the hard work and dedication I put into my cosplays.

7. Do you have one piece of advice that you would give to cosplay virgins?
For cosplaying newbies, I’d suggest looking for a character that is closest to you, or your body type. If you can, you’re already one step of the way to pulling of a good cosplay. You also want to make sure you have a good wig (if you need one) and basically, do your best. You want to represent the character as close as you can to the original. If you’re having trouble finding good quality costumes and don’t want to make one, there are many commissioners out there that you can hire.
8. Lastly, what is your con schedule looking like through 2013?
The conventions all be attending this year will be, Sac Anime, Sac Con, FanimeCon, Anime Expo, SDCC “San Diego Comic Con”, and a few others.

Guest Post-If You Have a Cosplay Girlfriend

Hi,everyone,valentine’s day(2013) is coming, this week,one of our customer-Charis submit a guest post to us, it’s really funny, I think we should share it at our blog. So comment here if you like this article :)

If You Have a Cosplay Girlfriend

How many of you dudes out there have had a girlfriend who was into cosplay? No, seriously – do you know what it’s really like?

For those of you who know, shush. To all you fellas’ out there with a girlfriend who cosplays, who think that it’s a HOT hobby of theirs – think twice!

1

They aren’t going to suit up for you; much less half straddle half model in front of the camera with you. Oh yeah, you get to HOLD THEIR STUFF at the corner of the convention room while they go trotting off for hours – posing for the camera away from your watchful eyes.

On a more serious note, here are some pros and cons that I’ve gathered on several lucky and unlucky fellows out there with a girlfriend who cosplays.

Pros:

1.Let’s start with a bright spot! For the guys with decent girlfriends, she might get you to take pictures of her while she models in the convention. Eye-candies! What better way to spend your time, and hey by the way she isn’t wearing a bra (Left).

2

2.Hey, her girl-friends might take a liking to you and it will considerably widen your options or you might start counting your blessings (relative to how attractive her friends are and if you want a new girlfriend). Eh, preferably when they’re less clothed – you can’t tell their figure from a bulky droid suit.

33.However, you might really like her so you can look cute and cosplay together (Left) !

Eh, or look like idiots together (Right), they’re not even cosplaying by the way – are those cosplay costumes? I think not.

Now here for the juicy part …

Cons:

1.Some of these girls may be what you’d call a “homestuck” cosplayer – meaning that they hand-craft their own cutesy little one-pieces and faerie wands. Awwww! You think that’s too cute?

Well, buddy, your girlfriend might not be exactly right up there, if you get what I’m saying. Hell, here’s an anecdote from a lovely girl at tumblr.

Let’s talk about the horrors of being a homestuck cosplayer!

We make our kidneys ruined by all the energy drinks we have to drink to make ourselves stay up and work on cosplay two days before the convention as you hysterically weep and scream “WHY CAN’T I BE BETTER AT SEWING” as you rip out your greasymattedtangledknotty hair and then the fabric gets caught in the machine and your needle snaps then the spool of thread comes unraveled and there’s thread everywhere and you try to fix the needle but it just won’t work then you stab yourself by accident and get blood all over the cosplay and have to start over from scratch and you glance up at the clock and it says 4:07 in the morning and you’ve stayed up all night and then your mom barges in and screams “GO TO BED ALREADY” but you just won’t go until she pulls the plug on the machine and by then you’re having a mental breakdown and curling up into the fetal position and weeping hysterically again and wondering how the fuck you’re ever going to get this done in time and you fall asleep in the corner of your closet underneath two feet of cosplay that’s fallen off the racks but your just too lazy to hang them back up but none the less you finally cry yourself to sleep over all that hard work gone to waste then you get up two hours later, have a few more red bulls and a dozen sugar cookies before sitting back down and working until 5:08 in the morning on the day of the convention then you crawl back into your bed after finishing only to have your alarm clock go off at 5:30 so that you can get your ass up and blow about an hour and a half applying all that gog damn troll makeup and put your horns on then drive to the convention three hours away while in the process freaking out several people in cars beside you and a few people in toll booths but you finally make it to the convention and realize you left a very important prop at home along with the keys to your house so you are utterly fucked then somedouche bag nearly runs you over in the parking lot but none the less you’ve finally made it there and you feel like you’re dead but you still have the time of your life and once you get home your face is covered in various shades of green, blue, and purple from the sloppy troll makeouts and your dripping grey onto your cosplay but you don’t give a damn if you mess anything up and you rip off your cosplay, horns and wig that you put so much time and effortsewing and styling, and scream out “FUCK IT. RIGHT UP THE ASS.” and you fall down onto your bed face first without bothering to take any of the grey off and successfully smear it all over your god tier bed sheets you dedicated so much time you should have been doing homework on, completely exhausted and you fall asleep wondering who in their right mind would EVER do this to themselves willingly and you swear to yourself that you’ll NEVER do this againas you finally sleep like the dead for the next two days but still you got it all done and will wind up doing it again in a month for another convention.

I’m sorry, did I rant?
((Yep this has happened to me before. True story.)) “

 

2.If she’s not a weirdo homely, country bumpkin who knits pathetic excuses for costumes, then she might be a manipulative little hussy. Yes, no in-betweens. She might think that she could get away with having you putty in her hands! Especially if you know NOTHING about cosplay.

You know how it is:
“But Sakura-chan NEEDS the 6 different bikinis, and I need new make-up and shoes!”

Don’t fall for such antics, you’re above that and I believe she’s above that too if she had any respect for you – that is if you have respect for yourself in the first place!

3. Here’s the thing, so you bought her the cosplay costume and all the glitter dust that she so desperately needs. And now? If she’s going to be gone for hours at that anime cosplay convention WITHOUT inviting YOU (I mean, you shouldn’t even have to ask!), then I don’t see a problem with cuddling her replacement for a few hours:

Editor reviews:
