For afflatuses to your own cosplay, you may find something helpful here. Now, let’s begin.
1. Please introduce yourself first.
Hi guys! I’m an Italian cosplay girl, my name is Gloria (Sweet Angel), I’m 21 years old and I’m attending Biotechnology at the University of Padua.
2. What does cosplay mean to you?
Cosplay means fun, passion, creativity and also suffering. Cosplay is a particular hobby, usually expensive, that give a lot of emotions, the possibility to make new friendships and knowledge. I choose characters similar to me in physical aspect and personality. Sometimes my boyfriend ask to me to perform characters for his pleasure for example Kirin armor, Kaguya and Ignis: in these occasions I searched a lot of information (and also images) about them to make their representation at my best! Cosplay is not only to make the costume, I think that interpretation is very important!
3. What and when was your first cosplay?
My first cosplay was Tifa Lockhart from FFVII on november 2008: I wore the costume with friends, but it wasn’t a cosplay convention! My first serious exhibition was in “Mantova comics” the following year. Unfortunately I haven’t a lot of photos: I need a new photoset 😉
4. What is your most memorable cosplay experience?
It’s hard to decide! Every day with a cosplay is wonderful! Perhaps my most memorable moment was the first photo with Tifa or people that meet me and say “Hi Sweet Angel, I’m your fan!” XD
5. What’s your favorite photo shoot?
My favorite photo is taken from one of my last photoset about Yoko! For a long time I searched a beautiful location for her, and finally I found it!!
6. What’s your favorite anime/manga/game character to cosplay as?
My favorite is Yoko from Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann.
7. Any cosplay plan in future?
I’m planning a blonde elf for Lucca Comics and Games, but it is a secret until I’ll finish the costume 😉 I can say that at the same convention I’m going to wear Miku Zatsune (Vocaloid) thanks to Mic Costume!
8. Do you make your costumes yourself or buy them?
Usually I made by myself the costume (for example Yoko and Kirin), but sometimes ask to cosplayer to make it for me as a commission (for example Kaguya and Ignis). Unfortunately I have a very old sewing machine that can’t sew a lot of fabric, or I have no time because of the University I never follow a dressmaking class, so make costumes take to me a lot of time >.<
9. Any other cosplayers you like?
Foreing cosplayers: Kamui, Ryoko, Kaname, Clefchan, Mostflogged. Italian Cosplayers: AuraRinoa, Marika, FraGatsu, Selaine, Mogu cosplay, Nadia SK, and more others 😉
10. Do some changes happen to you after cosplay?
I was very shy and after cosplay, self-esteem improves !
11. Any advice you wanna share with cosplay newbies?
Chose the character that you prefer, and not because is the latest trend! Make cosplay with heart and passion, but not with obsession!
