July's ConBravo! Spotlight is cosplayer Crimson Blade Cosplay! Check out the full interview and don't forget to apply here: http://conbravoofficial.tumblr.com/spotlight 1. How did you become interested in Cosplaying? I originally became interested in cosplay in my early teen years by wanting to be like certain video game characters like Link for example (had just gotten into Zelda at that time too). I am also into a lot of different arts, so it seemed like such a nice mix for me. 2. What was the first character you cosplayed as and why? As stated above, my interest in a character like Link led to me cosplaying Link from the Legend of Zelda. I gradually kept improving over time, but that first cosplay was really a nice entry point in my opinion. 3. What's your favourite cosplay to date that you've done and why? My favourite cosplays have to be Chrom and Phoenix Wright. Chrom was my hardest cosplay to make to date with the amount of detail and time it took to make. Combining that with how much I like him as a character, his design, and Fire Emblem, it is still a cosplay that I really love and plan to continue to wear. Phoenix Wright, while I don't wear as often (I do want to remake him), was a long time favourite because I like the character and I put a lot of effort into the wig. 4. What's a dream cosplay you'd like to do? This list changes a lot, but one of them is Hyrule Warriors Ganondorf with all that armour, wig, makeup, and props. Next up Castlevania: Symphony of the Night Dracula with all the intricate design, and makeup. One other cosplay I want to do, which might surprise people, is Varia Suit Samus. With all the armour that is needed for it, the electricity that I wanna run through the visor and cannon, and in general, the manpower needed to make it, is a cosplay I would like to do in the future. 5. Besides cosplay, what else do you like to do in your spare time? I play a lot of video games, watch anime and movies, see friends as much as I can, and make a Youtube show called "The Obsessive Gamer", where I talk about video games in an entertaining fashion. 6.What cosplays do you have planned for the future? Saizo from Fire Emblem Fates, Gendo from Evangelion, Ryoma from Fire Emblem Fates, Persona 5 Protagonist in school uniform, and Gintoki from Gintama. 7. Any tips for anyone who wants to get into cosplaying? Don't feel overwhelmed by cosplays that look good, amazing, and tough to build. Many of these people have been doing it for years and may have slowly built up their skills. Start slow and easy. Even if it may not look that amazing to you, over time you can get better and better. Of course, if you don't want to make a cosplay, there is no shame in buying your cosplays from stores as well. The point is to have fun cosplaying. Also, one other important point is to avoid people who are toxic in cosplay community, as they can cause a lot of problems. --- Simon Blackquill from Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies - Ailes Noires Cosplay Photography Chrom from Fire Emblem: Awakening - Sean's Photography Auron from Final Fantasy X - RS Cosplay Photography
