This week we’ve got a great a cosplay from the Great White North. Her name is Naomi VonKreeps and she does one of the best Scarlet Witch cosplays that we’ve seen.
I’m a Canadian cosplayer. I’ve been cosplaying for about 2 years although my love for sci-fi, comics and video games goes back to when I was a child. I’m mostly known for my Star Wars inspired cosplays and goofy personality haha. I’ve been featured all over the Web. I believe I am the only cosplayer to be featured twice on Playboy’s thesmokingjacket.com. I’m obsessed with Star Wars and Assassin’s Creed. By day I’m a humble civil servant working in database administration/web development and by night I’M A SUPERHERO!!
How did you first get into cosplay? I first got into it while I was doing some alternative/pinup modeling. Being a HUGE fan of Star Wars, I received a Boba Fett helmet as a gift and decided to incorporate it into a photo shoot and it all snowballed from there. I’ve been a fan of cosplaying for years now, and have always enjoyed creating outfits so it was a natural progression and one that I am enjoying immensely! I always tell people that I’m a shy database admin by day and a superhero by night because this is how it feels to me!
How much time do you spend making your costumes? That is soooo hard to say. It depends on the costume, and how much free time I have. It can vary from a week, to a month. I work full time, and only do this on a part time basis so finding the time to dedicate to costume creating and making can be a bit difficult.
What’s your favorite cosplay you’ve done so far? I’d have to say that my Wanda Maximoff/The Scarlet Witch is by far my favorite, so is my Assassin’s Creed (which I haven’t released yet)
Do you usually get positive reactions from fans? YES! I think I have one of the most amazing group of fans I could ever ask for. They are always positive and encouraging and I would not be where I am, doing what I love, if it wasn’t for them. Really, I can’t thank them enough for their support.
What’s the next costume or event you’re preparing for? Next cosplay I’m working on is The Black Widow. Next event is FanExpo in Toronto. I’m pant-shittingly excited. Ok, you don’t have to print that, but I AM! Seriously..I’m going to need diapers, mainly because apparently the Ubisoft booth is HUGE, Todd McFarlane will be at the booth and 2 actors/characters from AC3 and AC4 will be at the EB Games booth!!!
What characters inspire you the most? Characters that have influenced me since I was a child, whether from Star Wars, comic books or video games. Right now I’m obsessed with AC3 so Connor is my inspiration. Ok, I’d like to BE him. haha. My motto is Keep Calm and Assassinate Everyone!
