Time for another captivating cosplay interview. Enjoy!
1. What is your name and where are you from?
My name is Quinn. I was born and raised in central Florida but currently reside in New York.
2. How did you discover cosplay?
I've technically known of cosplay since elementary school because I was aware of Star Trek and Sci Fi conventions and that people would dress up for them... I actually knew it under the term Cosplay in sixth grade when I discovered anime and comic book conventions. (As well as general cons that include everything.)
3. What characters have you cosplayed in the past?
Android 17 (DBZ), Setsuna (Angel Sanctuary), Hinata (Naruto), May (Pokemon), Tohru (Fruits Basket) Rukia (Bleach), Anna (He Is My Master), Magik (X-Men, two different versions), Mio (K-ON!) and Himeko (Pani Poni Dash)
4. What sites have you worked with?
I've mostly worked with the cosplay fetish site Cosplay Deviants. I also have sets on the alternative nude site called Broken Doll House. Other than that, you can find my images on DeviantArt (bitchpleez.deviantart.com) and Model Mayhem (#1675193)
5. Who is your favorite character to cosplay?
Currently I would say Magik. I had a blast, even if I was dressed up as a hero instead of a villain. I'm working on a Poison Ivy costume for Halloween and really looking forward to that, though!
6. Do you read comics? If so, what are your favorites?
I love comics. Sadly I don't have time to keep up with everything I want to, but I grew up loving Batman and that still remains number one in my book. I'm also a HUGE fan of Neil Gaiman and Dave McKean's Black Orchid. It's one of my favourite comics of all time.
7. Are you a gamer, if so what is your favorite game and on what system?
I'm not much of a gamer.... I actually don't like most of the games I try to play. But I love anything Dark Stalkers, Tekken, Katamari Damacy and Silent Hill. I'm OBSESSED with Silent Hill. The World Ends With You is also one of my favourite games, and I love Pokemon.
8. What are your future plans in terms of cosplay?
I'm currently working on and commissioning a few costumes. My next costumes will be Sasha Caylo (Titan Maximum), Triana (Venture Bros.), and Poison Ivy (Batman). There's some other costumes I'm hoping to start working on soon, like Heather from Silent Hill and Sabrina from Pokemon Soul Silver/Heart Gold.
9. Where do you like to show off your costumes the most?
Obviously Conventions. That's where a costume will get the most recognition from people who love (or hate) the character or series.
10. What would you say is your favorite genre to cosplay?
Although I haven't been able to make too many costume for it yet, I love comic costumes. I'm looking forward to doing more Western comic characters in the future.
