Welcome to the first cosplay project on this tiny little blog: The Road So Far. Today, I have the wonderful cosplayer Luka to interview. Without further blah blah, let's start! <3
What/who motivated you to start cosplaying? Who and what is motivating you now?
Hmm I guess I was just looking at other cosplayers and got inspired by them! I don't really get inspired by anyone right now haha!
Looking back to when you started cosplaying, what have you achieved, gained, or learned? What do you want to achieve, gain or learn in the future?
I guess I've learned more about makeup and how fun it is to hang out with other cosplayers! I'm not sure about the future yet!
What will you tell your old cosplayer self? What will you do differently if you had the chance to go back? (Or any tips for beginner cosplayers?)
I would tell my old cosplayer self that I looked terrible but anything is possible and now I'm pretty happy about my cosplays!
Hmm a tip for beginner cosplayers would be to start with a simple cosplay of a character that you love! Don't set up a deadline on yourself, take your time to finish it and look at other cosplayers makeup to get inspiration!
Have you been to a con before? If not, what is stopping you? If yes, what do like most and least about cons? Which con is your favourite? What is your favourite memory at a con?
I've been to a con called Närcon Vinter here in Sweden! I used to feel scared of meeting so many people so that's why I've only been to one con!
For you, what are the biggest challenges in cosplay?
The biggest challenges in cosplay for me is to get the right makeup for the character I'm cosplaying, I do different makeup for different characters so it can be hard sometimes! It's also really hard sometimes when I really want to cosplay a character but since I'm so short I feel like I can only do shotas haha!
Who/what are your ultimate dream cosplays?
My dream cosplays are Haku from Spirited Away, Sora from Yosuga no sora and Izumi from Love Stage!
What are your cosplans for this year? Which cons are you attending?
My cosplans for this year are Sora Kasugano, Haku, Maki from Orenchi no Furo Jijou, Dagger from Book of Circus, Levi and Undertaker! I'm 99% sure I'm going to Storcon, I don't know about the other cons.
What do you want to tell your fans?
I would like to tell my fans/followers that they all mean so much to me and that I'm so grateful and ahh I just love you all<3
