Name: Ultra Girls Cosplay (Cissa and Sophii)
City: Wichita, KS
What was your first Cosplay Experience?
Cissa started cosplaying at Anime Festival Wichita, a local anime convention. Her first cosplay was Kagome: Sophii started cosplaying at Project A-Kon in Dallas, TX and cosplayed as a race car driver!
How long have you been Cosplaying?
We both started at completely different points in our lives! Cissa has been cosplaying since 2006 right after middle school and Sophii since 2009. But only in the past year have we began working events and conventions as cosplayers.
What is your favorite cosplay you have worn/created?
Cissa’s favorite Cosplay that she has made so far is Raven, she made all the pieces herself and wore it to A-Kon 2014. Sophii’s absolute favorite that she has made so far is Sorin, Planeswalker and was her first time making armor.
If you had unlimited resources, what Cosplay would you create?
Oh man! Cissa would make Samus and Sophii would make a Gundam! How amazing would that be?! Future plans!
What advice would you offer others trying to break into Cosplay?
Don’t let anyone tell you which characters you can and can’t cosplay. It also doesn’t matter what skill level you’re at, buy or build, if you’re thinking about cosplaying – DO IT! It’s the best thing in the world!
