Which was your favorite?
Chiaki Nanami, I honestly felt so adorable! The outfit fit perfectly and I genuinely felt that I looked quite good in it overall.

Which was the hardest?
Coronation Vivi, I had to custom order it, which is usually no problem but gathering a number of images of course can be rather hard when she only wore it for a few minutes xD Though sadly the outfit didn’t turn out and arrived the morning we left for AN !

Which was the easiest?:
Rukia by far, all I really did was find a nicely made outfit on ebay and order it, I just had to style the wig but all in all, quite a snap

729177_605157719571536_1092077886_oAny dream cosplays:
None right now, I’ve pretty much done all that I wanted to to date

What are you currently working on/What cosplay do you have planned next:
Mahiru Koizumi from Dangan Ronpa. Should be rather fun, great excuse to keep the camera out!

What is the best thing about cosplay: |
Being able to be anyone that you want. You can disappear into a character of simply be yourself, such freedom.

What is the worst thing about cosplay:
Judgmental bitches, those who feel that just because you aren’t a mirror image of a character then you can’t cosplay. Or simply because you look a little different, no fun!

Why do you cosplay:
I’ve always loved dressing up and this way I can do it on a larger scale and with more people.

Which was your favourite?
Mirai =v= I personally think I pulled her off the best out of the three I did.

Which was the hardest?
Ciel, for sure XD

1551465_697210833655536_8001282992321371048_nAny dream cosplays?
SO MANYYYYY. I would love to do fancy and more expensive cosplays, but I’m not too financially well-off at the moment =v=; I’d say my current goal is Kagamine Len in Karakuri Burst.

What are you currently working on/What cosplay do you have planned next?
Nagisa from Free! I’m hoping to attend some of the shoots.

What is the best thing about cosplay?
Meeting others, for sure. (And maybe camwhoring)

What is the worst thing about cosplay?
I guess for me, as a short person, it kind of brings forth my short-comings. I know people can be encouraging, but there will always be those who criticize body types.
Why do you cosplay?
Because I secretly want to be a 2D person XD
Naw, it’s mostly because I love the characters, and attending conventions and taking pictures with others is so fun for me.

I don’t have any =v=; But I’m thinking of starting one with my cosplay group buddies~

Name/Cosplay Alias: Ally Way Cosplay 10171090_784149268276778_6589463994858777132_n

How long have you been cosplaying? 6 years as of this month.

Who have you cosplayed so far:

  • Many versions of Harley Quinn
  • Hastune Miku
  • Panty anarchy
  • Multiple others

Which was your favorite?
So far Harley, that’s why I’ve re done her so many times. She’s so awesome and fun to be for a day and plan outfits for.

Which was the hardest?*
Zombie cop Panty. I had to wake up at 5 in the morning to eat and start applying the makeup which had to be re layered, sealed and sprayed. It was also the first cosplay I had made since, I stopped cosplaying after being called ‘not a real cosplayer’ because I was in a chair. It didn’t make me want to put the effort in because i felt it was hated either way. BUT I LOVED this one so much and more people did then did not and now i am back with the cosplay making bug.

Which was the easiest?*
My Dalek human hybrid. I’m in a wheelchair so I found the idea and construction was super easy and so simple yet effective.

Any dream cosplays?
YES! I’m completing two of them for a few upcoming cons as Ariel with a full blown tail and my chair will be covered in seaweed and bubbles. And Dr Mrs. The Monarch which is one of my favorite girls of all time and my chair will be transformed into her throne.

What are you currently working on/What cosplay do you have planned next?
I’m working on Injustice Harley Quinn, finishing the top for Ariel and my Dr Mrs. The Monarch cosplay.

What is the best thing about cosplay?
For me it’s an amazing escape. Not only do I get to enjoy planning out/working on my costume sewing and painting and always getting excited over new details.

But that feeling of accomplishment and excitement when you’re done, to be able to wear it proudly ALL day and being seen and able to act as a character you love (and not being seen for your wheelchair but for your work).

Seeing peoples faces or hearing ‘hey that looks awesome’ knowing you’re doing that character well. It’s like the way you dressed up as a kid, surrounded by thousands of people all dress up acting and being that character. There’s nothing better. 1502525_784148381610200_7746855878501235144_n

What is the worst thing about cosplay?
The fact there isn’t a con every weekend where I live. I love working on cosplays and being able to go to cons. it’s sad there isn’t more of them. otherwise nothing.

Why do you cosplay?
Pretty much the same reason as why it’s the best. I just love everything about it.

Which was the hardest?:

Which was the easiest?
Klanoa, mostly because it was my first and not very well made.

Any dream cosplays?:
Well it was Journey, but I guess if I were to finish putting on the rest of the glyphs it would be perfect!

What are you currently working on/What cosplay do you have planned next?
A Chandelure gijinka fro Pokemon, Weiss Schnee and Pyrrha Nikos from RWBY and Hiroomi Nase from Beyond the Boundary are the ones I’m currently working on.

The ones I have planned next maybe Wander fro Shadow of the Colossus or Skull Kid from Majora’s Mask.

What is the best thing about cosplay?
I would say the process of making something that Shows you love of something and getting to share that with other who also love it!

What is the worst thing about cosplay?
How competitive it can be, it really brings me down when people tare each others cosplays apart when its just for fun. Also how much it can cost.

Icosplay because its fun & i get to express myself & my creativity 🙂 it has become a passion ever since i started going to cons, i feel good about myself when i put this much work into something ^_^
