World of Warcraft Cosplay Katya, Russia
Happy Sunday everyone! to open the month of December will be another cosplayer in Europe, from Russia. Another WoW (World of Warcraft) cosplayer who will certainly awe you all with her cool cosplay works especially with her gears and props.
I recently found her on twitter and directly adored her phenomenal works. Her name is Katya Keller, a beautiful person with a lot of talent to share.
For those curious people, Lexieanimetravel is not representing any of online gaming institutions/company. The author (me) is a cosplay fan/supporter who love to recognize cosplayer’s works.
I believe cosplayers deserve to be recognized for their hard work and notable cosplay display!
Finally, I would like to thank you, Ms. Katya, for letting me share your story. It’s an honor to have you here! So let’s welcome and know more about her.
World of Warcraft Cosplay
Hello! My name is Kate (known as Katya Keller), cosplayer and propmaker from Voronezh, Russia. Huge fan of dragons, pugs, and World of Warcraft.
One day a friend invited me to join her in our local festival in Voronezh. And it was magical! So many wonderful costumes and characters. I was inspired to make my first cosplay costume as soon as possible.
My first convention was «Voronezh Anime Festival». It was my first armor (Maiev Shadowsong from World of Warcraft) and first performance on stage. I really love this costume.
My first sewed costume – Ichihara Yuuko from XXXHolic. And Umbra Crescent (Maiev Shadowsong weapon) was my first cosplay prop.
I prefer to create my costumes with my own hands. Constantly improving my skills in crafting, sewing, and painting, working with new materials. It’s very interesting!
Definition of Cosplayer
It’s a wonderful hobby, that connects so many people. Because of cosplay, I met a lot of new friends, so now it’s a very important part of my life.
The worst experience was in 2014 when I made the original costume with a dragon on my shoulders. It was very hot and very difficult for me to walk in this costume.
I do look up to some wonderful cosplayers – Kamui Cosplay (Germany), Egg Sisters Cosplay (USA), Feyische (Ukraine) and Narga (Russia).
Who would I recommend? My friend, a very talented cosplayer and wigmaker – Hidory Hope cosplay.
The biggest achievement for me – our cosplay team became the official «Tales of Old Rus» cosplayers (Characters from Russian fairytale by Roman Papsuev)
Piece of Advice
First of all – don’t worry about what other people think about you and your hobby! And never give up!
I will be at KiberCon at the end of March 2018 and one convention in my city.
