Cosplay Corner: ACosplay

Today in the cosplay corner: a great Dutch cosplayer!! She’s hardworking, passionate and of course amazing! Read the interview with ACosplay!


How did you find out about the existence of Cosplay?
When I was around 7/8 years old my sister was watching some anime series, I started to watch those to and was very curious so I googled for more and then I found out about the existence of cosplay.

When did you decide to cosplay yourself?
Hmm… that was around 15/16 years ? my friend found out about conventions in the Netherlands so we decided to go there, so I searched the whole internet for a nice cosplay and I did ! My first cosplay was Yuki Cross from Vampire Knight, and my first convention was Tsunacon 2012.

What was your first Cosplay?
Yuki Cross from Vampire knight ;)

What is your favorite cosplay and why?
Oh dear… I don’t know to many cosplays that I like… but I guess my Mad Hatter Undertaker from Black Butler, that’s the first one I made myself!


Do you make or buy your cosplays?
First I bought some, but later I got a sewing machine and now I only make them.

What is your most expensive cosplay?
Hmm…. No clue xD

Closet cosplay, Yay or Nay (And why)?
I guess its okay, as long as it is really the same as the character.


Which cosplayer do you most relate with/Are you fan of?
I guess Reika Arikawa, I have a vision to make the character real and how he/she would look like in real live, and I think Reika does so to.

What cosplay do you think you will never wear?
I am no fan of nakedness… so yeah no bikini!


What do you think is the most enjoyable about cosplay?
Making it yourself and hear people like it, and being someone else for a day. And of course meeting new people who likes the same stuff!

Do you make your own props? If so, What’s your favorite material?
Yes I make my own props (with help from my boyfriend). We made most of them out of mdf or worbla (I am just getting into worbla)

Do you have tips for starters?
JUST DO IT ! no seriously its fun ;)


Any future plans?
Oh yes, I have a list of cosplays I want to do, so I am not quitting yet!
