What's Your Favorite Cosplay and Why?
Currently, it's my Spider-Gwen Suit. Even if close behind there is my Jyn Erso Costume. However, this one is not finished yet. I love the Spidey suits because they are actually comfortable! Haha it also gives you a lot of strength and self confidence! The suit might be magic because when I put it on I truly feel like I could face my worst fears. Though, I ordered the suit via the online shop ZentaiZone.
How Long Have You Been Cosplaying?
I've been cosplaying since 2011. I started with Characters like Tsunade from Naruto or Leia Organa. I stopped for a while and started again in 2018 with my Jyn costume and Padme's dresses. I started working on props for the first time thanks to Jyn's costume and I am really happy about it!
Do You Make Your Own or Have It Commissioned?
Both actually. I usually try to create myself as much as I can but I am still learning. So, my Spider-Gwen Suit is not one of my creation and some part of my Jyn also. I try to sew as much as I can with my skills though. This is also the fun part of cosplaying! I love to learn new techniques. I also started working on my first props this year and I just love the paint job on my Jyn Erso blaster. Luckily, I will have the time to finish it soon! However, there is nothing wrong about commissioning parts of your cosplays or even an entire cosplay!
What's Your Favorite Thing About Cosplaying?
The community. It has to be the Community. Meeting new people with different cultures and fandoms is very enriching. I've learned so much thanks to my cosplayer friends and i'm truly thankful for their support. I think that cosplaying is more than creating a costume and taking pictures. I love the fact that we can use our passion to do some good things like volunteering or raising funds for children's hospitals. This is also what I love about cosplaying.

Any Advice for New Cosplayers?
Well, I also need advice as I am a newbie! haha If i have to give my advice to people who want to cosplay for the first time but are still hesitating, it would be to take a deep breath and jump! Do it because you won't regret it! Cosplaying is about creativity, passion for a fandom and the values spread by this fandom. It's about selflessness and the will to embrace your personality. You will meet amazing people and learn a lot through this wonderful experience.
