Get Best Inu x Boku SS Cosplay Idea-Interview with cosplayer Hakudoushi

Interview with cosplayer Hakudoushi -

Inu x Boku SS Cosplay

Daniele a.k.a. Hakudoushi is a cosplayer and web designer from Italy. He has cosplayed characters such as Undertaker from Kuroshitsuji, Amaimon from Ao No Exorcist and Dark Magician from Yu-Gi-Oh. We at ProCosplay loved his spectacular cosplay of Miketsukami Soushi from Inu x Boku SS. Let's get to know more about him!

Biography :-

Name - Daniele
Place - Italy
DOB - 7th June 1989
Fav Anime - Really, really hard for me to say.... Evangelion if I should pick just one D:!

1. Could you introduce yourself to the readers?

Hakudoushi :-
Hi everyone, I'm Daniel alias "Hakudoushi" (yeah I wish I was him, it's my favorite character from my childhood, I love characters with white hair... They are fascinating and enigmatic).
I love videogames, anime and art.
Everything I love in my life started because it was related to an anime or a videogame, and I mean everything! Also my job: I started making websites about Pokemon and Yu-Gi-Oh and now... I'm a web designer :P

2. What inspired you to start cosplaying and for how long have you been cosplaying?

Hakudoushi :-
I've always loved cosplaying but I never took many picture of myself.
What changed everything was Kuroshitsuji. I never loved an anime characterization and clothing so much, I HAD to cosplay Ciel!
And this started everything, it's been fun. Not exactly cheap, but really funny.

3. Why did you choose to cosplay Miketsukami Soushi?

Hakudoushi :-
The first time I saw Miketsukami I was like "WHOA NOSEBLEED ALL OVER"... No, really, that's what I said. I like his mystery aura and I find the design of this character extremely original.
If you want me to be a little deeper, I would say that everyone wants to wear a mask acting like a character we are cosplaying, mostly because we want to be like that character in some way.
I love his blind devotion for Ririchiyo. One day, I would like to have a "blindly devotion" for someone.

4. Could you give the readers some tips on cosplaying Miketsukami Soushi?

Hakudoushi :-
Well, first you have to know how to make the traditional japanese outfit, of course. That's the easiest part, not really hard to craft!
Remember to chose a good fabric because white fabric can look often like "hospital-like" clothes, and we don't want this in Miketsukami, do we!
The hardest part is making the tails. They have to stand up and make you look handsome just like the character. Use an iron thread inside them, and use a solid one! (not too much, you're going to need to adjust them once you're in the convention).
Also, learn how to wield a Katana properly

5. What do you think about the cosplay scene in your country, Italy?

Hakudoushi :-
I don't like Italy in many MANY way, but for some reason I love the cosplay scene. Of course there are people you don't want to deal with, but so is everywhere.
The conventions are good and well organized! Just consider "Lucca Comics", I love it. I saw "Madoka Magica" movie and I met the author of "Mirai Nikki", Sakae Esuno, it was really exciting.
If you want to come in Italy, come in october-november so you wont miss it!

6. What has been your most exciting/memorable cosplay experience to date?

Hakudoushi :-
Probably Undertaker from Kuroshitsuji. It's been hard with those heels. REALLY hard, but I don't regret a single moment cosplaying it. I loved making his scythe and acting creepy like him.

7. What is the most difficult cosplay challenge you've faced so far? How did you pull it off?

Hakudoushi :-
Hmmm... Probably it was the "make-up" part. I didn't like myself with make-up on, especially eyeliner on my eyes. I skipped a convention once because I didn't like myself at all and stayed at home D:
I solved it avoiding characters that have the eyeliner in a particular way. The hardest part of cosplaying is that you wont probably fit all of the characters you like. Understanding this you will only make good cosplays, hard life lesson ARGH.

8. In what way has cosplay changed your life?

Hakudoushi :-
I didn't have so many friends, I wasn't really so happy as I am now and I had nothing else to express myself.
The last one is the most important. I think that if you find something you can express yourself into, you find also happiness.

9. Any piece of advice for the cosplay virgins out there?

Hakudoushi :-
Just be yourself. If you have a character that you love and you think it wouldn't fit you, reinvent it so you will look good.
Choose a beautiful wig that fits you, don't have a one-track mind with the character's details. NO ONE can be exactly as an anime/videogame character, cosplaying it isn't about being maniacs for details, and it's the most common error people do!
Just think "how would the character be if it was real?". Reality is different, sadly.
And the most important thing is HAVING FUN, if you have fun making a cosplay and acting like the character you will definitely make a perfect cosplay :)

3. Why did you choose to cosplay Yuno Gasai?

Meepygal :-
I really enjoyed the Mirai Nikki manga and decided to cosplay her when the anime was coming out.

4. Could you give the readers some tips on cosplaying Yuno Gasai?

Meepygal :-
Don't be afraid to get creative when you cosplay her. You can do a lot of action and fighting poses. I literally had used at least five different weapons props in multiple photoshoots & I loved portraying the crazy yandere side of her. Also make sure you get pink contacts that stand out, since her eyes are incredibly vibrant and expressive. I see a lot of Yuno cosplayers buying pink lenses that look too grey and I think it ruins the overall look and feel of the character.

If I like it, can afford it and have time to construct it.

6. What is your dream cosplay?

Ive completed quite a lot of my dream cosplays in this past year but currently my top two are Rei Ayanami's plugsuit in Evangelion ANIMA and some version of the Iron Man suit.

7. How do you view yourself as a cosplayer?

Meepygal :-
I mostly do it for fun and friends. I love going to conventions and showing off my work too. Im usually a perfectionist when It comes to certain costumes and will work to make things look nice but my attitude is mostly laid back and fun.

8. Do you have any embarrassing cosplay moment that you'd like to share with us?

Meepygal :-
My most recent one was at Kumoricon this year. I was backstage during the cosplay contest and was giving out donuts to everyone in the room when I tripped over someones cosplay prop, went flying with all of the donuts and took a chair to the face like a champion.

9. Could you give some advice to the beginners out there?

Meepygal :-
Remember this is a hobby HAVE FUN. If you want to have amazing costumes its going to take a while for you to build the skills and knowledge that a lot of us veterans have. Practice and research is key; don't be afraid to make new things no matter how bad they look. Don't be afraid to make friends with other cosplayers, and ask for questions or help! When I first started sewing on my own my costumes were definitely not quality work.
