Get Sailor Moon Cosplay Idea-Interview with SailorMappy

Get Sailor Moon Cosplay Idea

Mappy Sanchez, aka SailorMappy, lives in Barquisimeto, Venezuela. She loves everythings related to Japan, be it anime or manga. SailorMappy is a famous cosplayer on DeviantArt, so hang around cause you're gonna want to read these stuff about her.

1. So, tell us something about yourself. And say Hi to your fans :)

Hi everyone! I’m Mappy Sánchez, from Venezuela, I love cosplaying and I hope you like my work, thank you for reading my interview n_n

2. How did you know about and get into Cosplaying?

I’ve loved anime all my life, ever since I can remember I watched Sailor Moon, Ojamajo Doremi, saint Seiya, Evangelion… etc. When I was very young and learned how to use the computer, I started searching for anime online and I came across cosplay, I loved watching pictures of cosplayers and i was really amazed by it. Then, when I was 12 I found out there were more anime fans in my country when I found a forum online, in that same forum I learned there was going to be a con at my city, I didn’t even thought about it and I started making a cosplay for the con.

3. Can you share your first cosplay experience and what character did you portray? How long have you been cosplaying?

The character I chose to cosplay first was Sailor Jupiter, because I’ve always loved Sailor Moon but at the time I didn’t know cosplay wigs existed, I had long brown hair so I thought I could cosplay Jupiter just fine. I was very nervous and I didn’t knOw if there were going to be any more cosplayers at the con. I was very relieved to see them when I walked in, It was really fun and a great experience that I won’t forget, it also surprised me that people wanted to take my picture.

4. How long have you been cosplaying?

I cosplayed for the first time in 2005 but could not do it again until 2010, so I’ve been cosplaying constantly for 3 years now.

5. What makes you want to cosplay?

Love for my favorite characters and series is what motivates me to cosplay, also the character designs that i find beautiful inspires me to make my own real life representation of them.

6. Which character is your favorite one that you've cosplayed so far?

Get Sailor Moon Cosplay Idea

Usagi Tsukino/Sailor Moon and Asuka Langley Soryu are my favorite characters of all time, so it’s only natural that I love cosplaying them so much!

7. Have you had the experience of a cosplay gone bad, or encoutered some problems while cosplaying? What are those?

I always have problems with each cosplay, i consider myself to be very bad at sewing so every project is a new challenge. Also, in my country is extremely hard to for materials, so we have to get really creative when it’s time to make props and accesories. For example, I had a lot of problems with my Asuka plugsuit, the fabric doesn’t exist in Venezuela so I had to ship it from U.S.A, also i asked for help with some pieces and at the end I hated them, I need to re-make them.

Which aspect of cosplay do you prefer: making garments, creating accessories, crafting props, makeup/prosthetics, etc?

I love making accesories like broochs, earrings and stuff like that, I also like sewing, even though it’s really hard for me, I love selecting the correct fabric and materials. On the other hand, the worst part of cosplay for me are the contact lenses, I hate putting them on.

9. For your Usagi cosplay, what preparations have you done?

Well I’ve done almost everything on my sailor moon cosplays, it was one of my early cosplays, I learned to do a lot of stuff when I made my first sailor fuku and when it was time to make the other ones it was a little easier, I take my time to make them because I want them to be as accurate as it can be, I also changed the wig because the first one wasn’t perfect for me, I always try to make a good job with Usagi because she’s my favorite and I wouldn’t forgive myself if I did a bad cosplay.

10. Are there similarities between you and the characters you've cosplayed?

I’m not exactly like them but we do share some similarities, sometimes I’m bitter or cranky like Asuka, Misty or Rukia, I’m also very clumsy and sensitive like Usagi, I also share some aspects with Asuka like the fact that I can be arrogant or proud like her, with Misty I feel very identified because her past is lot like mine, and the relationship with her sisters, I also love water and hate bugs for example haha. With every character I have some aspects which I feel identified with and also they have some characteristics I admire, like Usagi’s optimism and love for others.

11. What future cosplays are you planning?

Right now I want to finish my Mimi Tachikawa cosplay from Digimon 02, and re-do my Asuka school uniform.

12. What's your dream cosplay?

I’m proud to say that I’ve already achieved my dream cosplays, eternal sailor moon and asuka’s plugsuit! I need to find new dream cosplays.

13. Would you consider yourself as an Amateur or a Pro-cosplayer?

I’m an amateur because I don’t know how to make a lot of things yet and I need to learn how to sew properly, I tend to make things my own way.

14. Aside from cosplaying, what other things keep you busy in life?

Get Sailor Moon Cosplay Idea

My friends, my boyfriend and studying, I’ll graduate from university soon n_n

15. And aside from cosplay events/cons, do you dress up at home or out in the public?

Not really, I just cosplay when I have a con or a photoshoot!

16. Do you see yourself still cosplaying 5-10 years from now?

I’d love to, I can only hope that cosplay brings some new opportunities, if I have a chance to make a living from my vocation I’d be the happiest person in the world.

17. What advice can you share to your fellow cosplayers and cosplay virgins?

Get Sailor Moon Cosplay Idea

Do what you love and don’t care what others say, if you do it correctly you will show everyone that it’s worth it. Take your time to make your cosplays and put a lot of love into it, don’t be afraid to ask for help or for advice, you can approach me anytime and I will help you! Thank you for Reading my interview, lots of love for everyone!

Get Avatar The Legend of Korra Amon Cosplay Idea-interview with thegadgetfish

Michelle K. aka ~thegadgetfish, from USA

1. So, tell us something about yourself. And say Hi to your fans :)

Hi everyone!

2. How did you know about and get into Cosplaying?

I went to my first anime convention in 2004, and everyone looked amazing in cosplay. I wanted to be a part of that.

3. Can you share your first cosplay experience and what character did you portray? How long have you been cosplaying?

My fist costume was actually Itachi from Naruto. My grandma made the costume, while I just made the props and accessories. It was definitely a rush, and just interacting with everyone was really fun.

4. How long have you been cosplaying?

I 'started' in 2005, but that was mostly small props and things. I made my first full outfit in 2008.

5. What makes you want to cosplay?

The feeling you get after everything is put together, and you stare at the mirror and it's like, "Awesome".

6. Which character is your favorite one that you've cosplayed so far?

Get Avatar The Legend of Korra Amon Cosplay Idea-interview with thegadgetfish

Golbez (FFIV) is my favorite. He's just huge and badass.

7. Have you had the experience of a cosplay gone bad, or encoutered some problems while cosplaying? What are those?

I had a bad experience with my Amon cosplay, where the legplates broke during the morning of the con and I had nothing to fix it with. Luckily, I had a giant sticker in my pack, so I just ripped it up and somehow everything held together. Talk about stressful, though!

Which aspect of cosplay do you prefer: making garments, creating accessories, crafting props, makeup/prosthetics, etc?

Creating props, by far.

9. For your Amon cosplay, what preparations have you done?

 Get Avatar The Legend of Korra Amon Cosplay Idea-interview with thegadgetfish

I suppose the same preparations as other cosplays, just stare at a lot of reference images, and sketch ideas/potential problems/etc in a notepad.

10. Do you observe some similarities in all the characters you've cosplayed? What similarities would it be if yes?

Most of them have my face covered!

11. What future cosplays are you planning?

I've been thinking about a Borderlands 2 Zero cosplay for about a year now. I've yet to actually work on it, though.

12. What's your dream cosplay?

Always wanted to make an Ironman suit!

13. Would you consider yourself as an Amateur or a Pro-cosplayer?

Amateur, definitely. I'm not nearly as productive as other cosplayers!

14. Aside from cosplaying, what other things keep you busy in life?

Get Avatar The Legend of Korra Amon Cosplay Idea-interview with thegadgetfish

I program games for a living, and snowboard all winter.

15. And aside from cosplay events/cons, do you dress up at home or out in the public?

Does halloween count?

16. Do you see yourself still cosplaying 5-10 years from now?

Yes, or at the very least, i'll continue making props. I had a year or 2 where I stopped cosplaying, and I definitely missed it.

17. What advice can you share to your fellow cosplayers and cosplay virgins?

Just do it! Don't give yourself any limits or restrictions. All projects can be broken down into small pieces, so just start working on something.

Cosplay Review-Get The Legend of Korra Amon Cosplay idea

Here we have the newest addition to the growing avatar cosplays and we welcome the anti-bending “Amon”! The user known as “thegadgetfish”, has put together a well round up cosplay costume that finally shows an Amon that looks as mysterious and raw as he does in the anime. What is more so amazing is that the mask has been created by the cosplayer himself. It is very hard to find a good Amon mask, as the others that float around the net look cheap and amateur and pretty much, not Amon like. This cosplayer strikes the pose which brings out what Amon is really all about. The padded armour which showcases a very oriental theme and the hooded suite to match everything together really makes the character stand out and not look out of place of shifty.  Also the colours on the costume are fabulous. The dark colours make it a very close rendition but keep the entire costume grounded with the shiny shoulder pads and arm pads. With all the previous renditions you wouldn’t be afraid to run into an Amon, but you wouldn’t want run into this Amon in real life, as the moves look smooth and not forced with a hint of genius behind him with the water fountain. He showcases his other photos which put him head to head with other favourite Avatar characters.  With all that said it’s quite a costume that I could see be popular among that fans. Especially that it looks comfortable to be in (unless it’s a hot day) and would actually make you feel like the character itself. Not just from the inside but the outside as every intricate detail, from the padded areas to the darker areas with different materials. The mask itself brings the entire attire together, and I’m sure if there was an anti-air bender to come into force into our world, he’d be looking for “thegadgetfish” for his costume closet.

Cosplay Review-Get RWBY Cosplay idea From Sorayomi

Now look what we have here! Our eyes have the pleasure to see Blake in RWBY revived in spectacular fashion in this cosplay costume from the user “Sorayomi”. Together with her Gambol Shroud katana, this costume is a near exact copy from the actual anime (let alone the lady in the costume) of the subtle Blake. What really makes this cosplay costume so great is the simplistic details added to both costume and prop. It is very natural and little editing (if not none) went into this actual photograph which is a really hard feat since re-creating anime characters requires a little bit of Photoshop magic. Never less this flawless portrayal is eye candy for any RWBY fan. The detail in the Katana to the swirling of the ribbon in the wind, it is a cleverly put together to re-create a fantastic feel of the character. To create that anime look, special makeup has been applied to create the anime eyes, and contacts to add more of an effect to it. The pale face and slim build really brings together the entire costume, also with the blade itself with the extruding gun. Great prop design went into this as in the other photos that the user “Sorayomi” has posted up really shows off the different uses of the katana. Her face expression makes everything look natural and not too contrived or posed. It is one of the best cosplay I’ve personally seen, and that is because of the entire look actually looks like the anime Blake jumped out of the anime world into ours. It is such a close rendition of the character and “Sorayomi” really fits the character and embraces it perfectly.

Cosplay Review-Get Alice Madness Returns Cosplay idea

And here she is! Alice is refreshingly revived from the game Alice: Madness returns, in fantastic fashion by the user called ‘Kill the light’ on deviant art.  Not only do they bring out the vibrant reds, but the background with the blue Morpho’s surrounding her give the abstract feel of the character. She looks creepily attractive with her school girl look and bloodied hands but her subtle expression on her face would make her a person to die for. The whole entire cosplay costume is beautifully updated from our known current style to encompass the psychologically troubled Alice we have come to love. The long white hair stays perfectly white with all the blood spilled off her hands without a trace of it on her outfit. Together with the laced sequins from her waist, the old fashioned maid boudoir attire shouts out French influenced costume. The amount of detail in the cosplay outfit is amazing. From the small details of the small skull belt to the subtle use of the necklace and make up paled skin. Holding the blade almost exactly like the cover art for the PlayStation 3 release, the user ‘kill the light’ strikes poses that shows off not only the outfit but the makeup on her face and colour in her eyes. With the other photos it almost has a vampire look but keeps you familiar with Alice. One thing is for sure, if you did meet a girl like this coming after you then you wouldn’t know if to run or hide! Even after seeing a bloodied knife. It’s a beautifully, artistically and detailed cosplay outfit that although simple is also incredibly complex in design.

Cosplay Review-Get Green Arrow Cosplay idea From The_Wolverine

     It is a hard to find a great Green Arrow cosplay costume, even more so because of how many times the character has been re-invented. Most recently is the newer darker version that the hit TV series “Arrow” has taken upon the character. Here this hunky chap on cosplay.com has created a great Green arrow costume that makes you forget that it’s a man wearing tights.The costume keeps the character looking like a badass superhero with-out making him resemble a Robin Hood. Nether less the leather hooded gillet underlying the skin tight pants creates a comic feel but a more serious persona. Couldn’t you see this guy facing off against the brick? I sure can! As everything about the costume adds the brute persona the Green Arrow has. Normally wearing a mask without eye makeup could distract from any outfit and make it look cheap or out of place. Not here! The more open views for the eyes add more of a human feel to it. Add the person in the suite who has the look of a gritty Green Archer and a full body to match; I think it’s one of the best circling the net. Wouldn’t you agree? With the darker shades of Green on top with the lighter shades below, you can’t help but resemble the costume a mix of both.This is the outcome of the two put together and i must say it looks quite magnificent, with keeping with the old and bringing in the new. If you’re a Green Arrow fan or a follower of the TV series I am sure you will have admiration for the  portrayal this guy has put together. They also have many cosplay pictures where they show off their different varieties of costumes.
