Be sure to check back every week to catch some up and coming new cosplay talent or get a look at some well established and already famous members from the world of cosplay.
My name is Alejandro Fanzago. I live in Buenos Aires, Argentina but I was born in Salta. I’m 20 years old. I am a Cinema and special effects makeup student. I also do theater, song and dance. Batman fan and inveterate geek.
How did you first get into cosplay? Oh my. Honestly, with Gaara from Naruto. I considered it like a challenge in the high school. And I liked it so much that I never went back to being myself. Each cosplay was a new challenge. And when I materialize them, I feel that nothing is ever impossible.
How much time do you spend making your costumes? The time needed. Each process carries its time. For example, my latest version (Arkham Asylum Joker) took 10 months to complete.
What’s your favorite cosplay you’ve done so far? Now that I at last succeeded it. The Joker from Arkham Asylum Videogame. The details and the work that the suit has no equal to any other. From the color and texture of the fabrics to realization.
Do you usually get positive reactions from fans? Constantly, and growing.This is what encourages me to continue with this!
What’s the next costume or event you’re preparing for? I have several waiting. The next that I will do, will be: Ace Ventura, The Joker from Sideshow Premium Format Version.
What characters inspire you the most? The Joker certainly. Alex Delarge. The Mad Hatter. Among others.
