1. How about you introduce yourself first?
Meimei :- I'm Meimei Chibi, cosplayer from Vietnam, you can call me Meimei. My sign is Gemini and I love pink and cute stuff :D Nice to meet you all!
2. What got you into cosplaying?
Meimei :- I've read a lot of manga since i was just a little girl but I didn't know anything about cosplay until 2007 i came to my first cosplay festival which was held at my location. It was like a magical world, full of happiness. Later I met some new friends, they love manga and anime just like I do and together we set up a cosplay group. My first cosplay is Nana Komatsu from the manga Nana.
3. Why did you choose to cosplay Madoka Kaname?
Meimei :- Last year when the anime Puella Magi Madoka Magica first came out, I enjoyed every episode and after finishing the series, I was touched by the beautiful friendship of Madoka and Homura so me and my friends decided to cosplay this anime. Of course I love Madoka the most so I chose to cosplay her.
4. You've been included in Otaku House's Top 30 favourites: Cosplay Idol Duet Showcase - Asia. Can you describe the experience?
Meimei :- Kinda suprised, like "Wow, so happy that many people likes this picture, maybe we've done a good job!"
5. How did you manage to pull off Madoka Kaname's look and character?
Meimei :- Hmm... I've watched the series many times and listened to its OST, somehow I can understand the feeling of Madoka Kaname. I've practiced Madoka's make up 2 times until I got her child look.
6. Where do you often go for your photoshoots?
Meimei :- I often go to the park or some coffee shops that have good background for my cosplay.
7. What is your favourite part about cosplaying?
Meimei :- It's the progress when making a cosplay, very fun especially with partners!
8. Do you have any embarrassing cosplay moment that you'd like to share with us?
Meimei :- I still remember the first time i made my first cosplay photoshoot with my group, my character was Nana Komatsu and I had to express her love with my partner who cosplayed Takumi. At this time I was just 16 years old so I was very very shy when doing romantic actions like hug or hold hands >_< But then I learned that cosplay is very hard but fun ^^
