1. Please introduce yourself first.
My name is Dila, I am a self-proclaimed artist and I enjoy designing robots in my spare time. I live in Canada, have absolutely no social life or hobbies (rather than cosplaying of course) and enjoy blasting my music in awkward situations.
2. What does cosplay mean to you?
I think cosplaying is a beautiful form of art; if done right. It expresses the feelings you have for that character, portraying him or her the way you feel about them. It can also be in an acting perspective; where you can perform and literally become that character. It’s a really fun experience.
3. What and when was your first cosplay?
Oh geez. I believe my first cosplay was back when I was thirteen and I was completely obsessed with the series Bleach at the time. It was when I first found out about cosplay, and I literally had no idea what to do. I ended up being my favorite character from the series; Neliel Tu.
4. What is your most memorable cosplay experience?
My most memorable cosplay experience had to be when my friend Alex and I had finally put together our Fullmetal Alchemist cosplays and went out for a photoshoot. It wasn’t much, not to mention it was boiling hot outside but we both had waited such a long time to do the cosplay together that even though we were dyeing of heat it was like a ‘we finally get to dot this!’ moment.
5. What’s your favorite photo shoot?
I don’t necessarily have a specific photo shoot in mind; however just running around town in my groups and my cosplays and seeing everyone’s reactions was always the best part.
6. What’s your favorite anime/manga/game character to cosplay as?
My favourite characters to cosplay as are Winry Rockbell from Fullmetal Alchemist and Lelouch/Zero from Code Geass.
7. Any cosplay plan in future?
Oh man, you should see the list of future cosplays. The major cosplays would have to be Soul Evans from Soul Eater, Misaki Ayuzawa from Kaichou wa Maid-Sama, Hope Esthiem from Final Fantasy XIII and Kanade Tachibana from Angel Beats!
8. Do you make your costumes yourself or buy them?
It depends on the cosplay. If it’s extravagant or complicated I would prefer to buy them, if not and it’s simple I’ll “attempt” to make them.
9. Any other cosplayers you like?
Ton of them. Too many to list. However, I’ll have to have to write my right hand man who does a lot of the pairing cosplays with me. Her account is AlexIsOnFireForYou.
10. Do some changes happen to you after cosplay?
Changes? Haha, well after we stop cosplaying for the day; I become a complete mess. I don’t even think you can recognize me after I cosplay.
11. Any advice you wanna share with cosplay newbies?
My advice to you cosplay newbies is; try to make yourself look as convincing as possible. Think of the cosplay as not you wearing a costume, but becoming the character instead. That includes good wigs, convincing costumes ect. Good luck to you!
