Final Fantasy Cosplayer Alisa, Thailand
Such a nice day to start the beat of life, our next cosplayer is another Final Fantasy Cosplayer. Today will be adding into our class of Video games. It is one of the most famous video games in Asia and all over the world, due to people demands it eventually became a tv series, from the first episode to its 14th one.
I have followed the series, the characters are super cool and its history. Our cosplayer came from a far country (far from EU), you already have heard of the cities Chiang Mai, Pattaya, Ko Samui, and of course the most known Bangkok. Have you an idea now? yes! It’s Thailand.
Alisa is a Thai cosplayer that has an exceptional talent when it comes to doing “make-up” approaching to the facial perfection of well-polished works of the character she’s portraying.
This girl is absolutely amazing with her crossplaying/genderbending looks! Amazing at that point you can’t even recognize her after the transformation.
Let us hear her story about her journey into becoming a Cosplayer.
Final Fantasy Cosplayer Chaine
I first discovered cosplay when I was around 10 years old, saw cosplay in Japan on TV and I really liked it.
I wanted to cosplay too! would wanted to be the characters that I loved.
My first convention was Thailand Games Show in 2007. I felt pretty bad because my costume was not so good, my wig and makeup were not as good as they should have been.
I walked around quietly. After this event, I wanted to make a better costume, set my wig to be better and looked for better makeup techniques. I started making my own props, ordered some too and my friends also came to help.
I started to look better and people started taking photos and made much more cosplaying friends.
My first sewed costume and my most favorite was the Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII. It was the first costume that I fully sewed myself.
For every other costume, I converted them, such as Tifa (Final Fantasy VII) and Yuna that I color dyed all the clothes and hand-painted them.
Definition of Cosplayer
Cosplay helped to improve my sewing, drawing, painting, makeup and acting skills. I made many friends in the cosplay community.
It made me realize how important exercising is. Holding heavy props for many hours requires a lot of stamina and strength.
The best thing about cosplaying is to be able to learn and experience what it is like to be the characters you love. When you cosplay that character, you have to keep and be in the character as much as possible.
My worst experience was when I cosplayed Dante (Devil May Cry) and got on stage. The acting time limit was about 1.5 minutes. Because I was so excited, I forgot the acting queue on who supposed to move first.
When my brother who was cosplaying Nero at the time was slashing his sword, I got shocked and punched him in the face. He fell down to the ground and I was stun for a moment before I pulled him up.
The time was over and that was the whole act. It was really bad.
I am glad that people are recognizing me more and more.
Advice to give
You must study who the character is, his or her habits before studying the costumes and how to look like them.
Regarding the photos, if you act the character feeling well and do the makeup well, your costume does not need to be perfect.
You don’t need to Photoshop at all.
I will be attending the Japan Expo and Japan Festa 2018 in Thailand. If there is a chance, I wish to attend a cosplay event in Japan in 2018 as well.
What a great surprise for me to discover this beautiful person. I didn’t have any contact with her at first. We were complete strangers on twitter world. In a snap of a finger, I was into her photos adoring all those works and photos she has.
I hesitated to ask her about the interview, I wasn’t sure if she’ll say yes and when she responded it was amazing!
Definitely, a cosplayer to admire, I totally love her style and the way she expresses herself. As she said in the Achievements corner, that she’s very happy that people start to appreciate and know her more. What a humble person!
