Nice to meet you~ I am a cosplayer from the USA.
I started to cosplay in 2006, but took a 2 year break. In 2010 I started to cosplay again and wish to continue my interest and admiration for cosplay :)

Lene‘s Bleach Cosplay Performance

Character: Rukia

Description: The summer version of the school uniform is one of my favorites to wear. It’s simple to put on and the most comfortable costume.

Description: My fingers were freezing it touched the snow, but I’m really happy with how the photo came out. Sode no Shirayuki is almost hidden in this photo! Shihakushou was made using black polyester fabric with plain white cotton for the under layer.

Description: I was happy to debut Lieutenant Rukia at AWA 2011! I simple love the addition of the gloves as it resembles closely to Byakuya’s. It was also very fun to make the gloves—easily my favorite part of the new version! The badge was made from cardboard foam and painted over with acrylic paint.

Sode no Shirayuki was made by myself using cardboard, ribbon, clay, and cardboard foam and then painted over with white acrylic paint. Photo by TheKat ConGoer and edited by me.

Description: I wanted to depict Rukia’s solemn expression during the Soul Society arc, where she was held prisoner. The costume was made using white polyester fabric, the red collar was made using card stock paper and then I sew red fabric over the paper. The butterfly was drawn by myself on my black shimmering artpad cover!

Here’s a simple interview:

Q: How did you know our contest? And how much have you known about Miccostumes.com?

A: I saw this contest advertised at DeviantArt. I have heard of Miccostumes before over at cosplay.com.

Q: Is Bleach cosplay your favorite theme? Which character from Bleach do you most like? Is the costume for this character covered here or in our store?

A: Bleach is one of my favorite cosplay theme, simply because I have a great admiration towards the heroine, Rukia.  Besides Rukia, I like Byakuya, Yoruichi, and Shinji. And yes, my costume is covered in your store.

Q: What’s your first cosplay? How do you think about it? Is there any photo shared with us?

A: My first cosplay is actually the Bleach shinigami outfit done in 2006 for ACen! However, instead of Rukia, it was done for Nanao Ise. I used black polyester, white cotton, and black cotton for the outfit. The shoe was purchased at a store from the mall and then customized to make it look like the waraji shoes. I also modify a generic white sock to turn them into tabi sock.

Q: Is there any cosplay plan recently? Or which cosplay convention are you interested in taking part in?

A: I have costumes for Macross Frontier, Bleach, Final Fantsy Type-0, Vocaloid, Puella Magi Madoka Magic planned for this year. The conventions I have planned are Anime Detour, Anime Central, MTAC, and AWA.

Q: How long will you continue to do cosplay? Or do you think you will do it all the time? What does cosplay mean to you? Is there any element rather attractive for you?

A: Cosplay has always been to express and not impress, at least for me. It allows me to bring out my creativity and helps me to improve my craftsmanship. I don’t see myself cosplaying all the time, but I certainly will not stop cosplay!

Q: We will be interested to know the most memorable moment you got during cosplay.

A: Simple meeting new people who shares the same interest as me: to cosplay

Q: It’s believed our cosplay fans will be grateful if you can share us with your experience in this performance art. What’s the most important aspect for a cosplay beginner?

A: The process will be long, but with the time and effort you spend on making a costume/prop/accessory, in the end the work will pay off.

Q: Do your family members support you? Do you often talk about your cosplay works with them? Do they also love what you’ve done?

A: I have family members who cosplays as well, so it’s nice to cosplay together.  And while they don’t embrace cosplay as openly as I do, we all still support it.

Gender : Female
Nationality: Hispanic
Social Networks: Deviantart #1, Deviantart #2, Facebook, Tumblr

hola, hello, Ciao call me Italian Pasta maybe even Italy either way the nicknames belong to the same person and currently i am a senior in high school. My obsession with Hetalia started when a friend kept mentioning it to me so i decided to check it out. i was instantly glued to the anime and now two years later i still am! i love Hidekaz Himaruya drawing style so much that i began doodling on all my school work; i cant go a day without drawing Italy or America on my homework. i love Hetalia so much that i own all three limited edition DVDs and Hetalia Paint it White. i cosplay as Italy or America at cons or even just for fun i also make Hetalia ahoges out of hair extensions, wire and gel. i feel like the meaning of Hetalia is that its ok to laugh at yourself once in a while ’cause no matter what war you’re involved in friends are always there to help you out.

Let’s enjoy Fanarts of ItalianPasta’s!

1. Ole

Comments from the artist: in the picture is Spain and mochi Romano what can i say i love Spamano and to express it i drew this it was actually just a simple sketch until i decided to color it i love the way it turned out in the end though. theres just something about Spain that makes me smile and well it helps me get through a bad day. traditional media sketched in pencil and colored with prisma colored pencils

2. Maple Pasta CANxITA

Comments from the artist: this is the first draft of the cover for a doujin i have been working on. this idea hatched through roleplay and a friend and i decided to create a fan comic of it so far the rough draft has 14 pages. sadly i had to stop there do to being in my busy senior year of high school however i do plan on finishing it. traditional media sketched in pencil inked in sharpie pen

3. Give Me More Hamburger

Comments from the artist: America is just one of those characters you can’t hate for some reason and well this is what happens when you decide to draw a hamburger and can’t help but imagine America somewhere in the picture in this case under it. not only did the hamburger inspire me but the character song Hamburger street did too! traditional media sketched in pencil colored with prisma colored pencils

4. Zombies Hetalia!

Japan

Comments from the artist: ok not only do i love Hetalia but i love Call of Duty Black Ops Nazi Zombies and when i first played i instantly imagined the COD character Tank Dempsey as America not only because he’s American but it just seemed like the perfect fit and well this is my version of America in Nazi Zombies holding the rare to get ray gun. traditional media sketched in pencil and colored with prisma colored pencils

5. My BFF Norway

Japan

Comments from the artist: Italy is my favorite character of them all! like Italy i love to meet/make new friends and the idea of drawing this piece came to me when i met a new friend at school which also happened to be a Hetalia fan(the only other Hetalia fan in school). Her favorite Character is Norway and she insisted me on drawing him for her. traditional media sketched in pencil inked in sharpie pen

Hi there! I have been into Hetalia for about two years, and I have been making fanart since then.  When I go to conventions, I cosplay Germany! Or, I used to. I have problems with the cosplay costume I used to wear. I find that, I really like Hetalia in the way that it documents history, in a entirely new perspctive! Even though it must be checked if there’s any historical facts behind some things, I really do love it for its creativity!

Since always I’ve liked to draw… When I was a very little girl I used to draw fanart of the series that was watching in all the notebooks that there were at my house (and I still doing it ) My obsession for Hetalia began in the summer of 2010, when a friend recommended to watch it… And I don’t regret nothing!  It’s so cool! Because of Hetalia I have known really friendly and wonderful people, to those I love and I can call friends… And even though we are thousands of miles away there’s something that always bring us together and will never separate us. In short… I’m a fan of Hetalia to death!

Nationality: American and Spanish

Me(left) Sister(Right) Other sister was camera shy. Also my sisters dog Sandy in the middle.

I am 13 years. now I think i’m too young to be watching this, I think and I really wanted to sign up for this because I am OBSESSED with Hetalia. I have never cosplayed before but I really want to so I can go To AnimeNEXT in June. One day I went to school with Italy’s curl by putting gel on and started talking to my teachers in a Italian accent it was very funny! I have been seeing Hetalia since 2008 because of english subtitles I have really Enjoyed the show! I have been drawing people or Chibi characters for as long as I can remember. I tell my teachers “Hetalia is the future” but just looked at me confused because they don’t know what Hetalia is and I secretly have a mini white flag with me that I made in my pocket . Well that’s enough of me. Here are my recent drawings!
