Cosplay Discovery & Conventions

I discovered cosplay when I was 16 years old in high school. In the beginning, I only watched anime, so I don’t really know what Cosplay is that time. Then I noticed Cosplay because of my brother.

Sometimes my brother joined me to Con and I was so amazed when I see a lot of cosplayers and after that, I was inspired to cosplay too like others. And also I think cosplaying is not easy.

My memorable cosplay when I did Layla from Mobile Legends Bang Bang there’s so many Fans of Layla.  A lot of photographers and con-goers appreciated my Layla Cosplay there’s so crowded at the time I’m quite curbing in the heat and light of the place.

Costume/Gear/Props/Armor Making

I didn’t sew my costume but I can craft weapons my first build weapon on my own is my Rory Mercury (AXE HALBERD) It so difficult for me because it’s my first time to make my own props. I spent a lot of time and days for these without rest.

I also have a tailor and personal craftsman (Duo’s Armory) so legit and accurate. I love all of his work.
These are the recent cosplays that I love:

  • Emilia – Re-Zero
  • Rory Mercury – Gate
  • Akagi Aircraft Carrier – KANTAI COLLECTION
  • Aqua – KONOSUBA
  • Maica Sakuranomiya – BLEND S
  • Alisa Ameilia Inilichina – GOD EATER
  • Mitsuha Miyamizu – KIMI NO NAWA

Worst Experience

My role model cosplayer is Aza Miyuko I was inspired by her cosplay so much. I truly love her cosplay! She cosplays both Male or Female characters and they are so accurate!

Definition of Cosplayer

Being cosplayer is not easy, lots of time and long preparation are needed When you’re cosplay you must need to know the character you cosplayed. The attitude, the expression, and the looks I love cosplay because it makes me happy I have a lot of friends at cosplay community than normal life.
