City: Rostov-on-Don, Russia
What was your first Cosplay Experience?
I cosplayed for the first time in 2010 for Tanibata convention in Russia, Rostov-on-Don together with Yuki. We cosplayed characters from Vampire Knight: she was Yuki Cross and I was Zero Kiryuu. That anime was new and popular at the time and became our favourite at once. Many people liked our cosplay. We were really glad for that and made up our minds to continue cosplaying. We weren’t present at the cosplay show, that took place in the hall, but walked along the grounds talking to other cosplayers and taking pictures. It was much more fun coming to know so many people instead of watching the performance.
How long have you been Cosplaying?
For five full years.
What is your favorite cosplay you have worn/created?
Unfortunately I don’t have too many finished cosplay costumes, but if I have to choose, that would be Kaneki Ken from Tokyo Ghoul.
If you had unlimited resources, what Cosplay would you create?
I would like to make Oka Hachirou’s 100 point battle suit from Gantz.
What advice would you offer others trying to break into Cosplay?
Don’t listen too much what others say, but use your own brains
