On my last post i started interviewing Florida cosplayer: Brittany Jung, as she cosplayed as Zelda from The Legend of Zelda. For the 1st part of this interview CLICK HERE.
Now we will continue our interview as we learn about Brittany’s experiences as one of the most well known and beloved Nintendo Princesses of all time: Princess Zelda.
7. What do you personally feel when you are portraying the character and why do you choose to cosplay her?
“When I portray her, I feel like I have to look just as gorgeous as her and as graceful! I choose to cosplay her because I wanted to make a childhood dream come true. I wanted to be her, just like very little girl wanted to be a Princess. I do love her character design more than any other Nintendo design. xD”
8. What are people’s reactions to you when you are in costume?
“I feel like I get some attention when in costume. Every convention I go to I get a lot of photos from others as well as make friends. I also like to act in character while in cosplay as well. I feel like it makes peoples days as well as making mine.”
9. What was the hardest part about bringing this charcter to life?
“The hardest part about bringing her to life is just trying to portray her in photos. I wish I had more but I want to show that Zelda is a strong girl character and can kick some butt!”
10. Did you ever get any special recognition for this costume?
“I did get a photoshoot with a really awesome photographer for free by the beach in LA. But other than that, not really hahaha.”
11. What videogame character would you like to portray next?
“Hmm. Right now I am not sure. I would love to work on Twilight Princess Zelda next or get started on my Dream Drop Distance version of Sora.”
12. Lastly is there anything you would like to convey to the readers?
“Sure! I always love to encourage others to cosplay or keep cosplaying if you are! Everything is possible no matter what level you are on. Everyone can cosplay no matter gender or size! Do what you love to do and keep at all your dreams and hopes.”
