How did you first get into cosplay? I’ve always loved dressing up. Since she was a little girl. But the first time I practiced cosplay “serious” form was almost five years ago. I did it with a friend, we were very excited to have played the new game Resident Evil 5 and we dress up Chris and Sheva. However, for problems of my, it was not until later when I started to seriously do Cosplay, more or less about three or four years. This time I was Lara Croft. And since then, I’ve done everything what you can see so far.
How much time do you spend making your costumes? It depends. For example, the Catwoman costume is quite simple. All I had to create are accessories and parts such as costume hat. But other cosplay as Ada Wong from Resident Evil 4 (Soon I’ll upload photos of this suit), I have to take months of work.
What’s your favorite cosplay you’ve done so far? It’s a difficult question because each Cosplay I have something good and I like it. With Catwoman the people say I look a lot like her physically, for example. And the Scarlet Witch and Domino I have much affection for them. Them appeared on the website of Marvel.Com, are two cosplay that really people enjoys it. Lara Croft brought much joy to my life, I’ve always loved this character since I was a little girl. And the last cosplay thing I did, Harley Quinn is one of my favorites. I love him with all my strength!…. Would not know what to say. When you choose a character, you choose it because you love it. So it is very difficult to decide!
Do you usually get positive reactions from fans? Always! Generally, people are very friendly. They take to me lots of pictures, and sometimes they congratulate to me for my work. It is something I love, very positive. It encourages me to keep going with this!
What’s the next costume or event you’re preparing for? I have many: Black Widow, Kitana, Ada Wong, Ms. Marvel, Poison Ivy…. And more!!!!!!!
What characters inspire you the most? Strong, smart, sexy and powerful women. Without a doubt. They are role models in my life.
