Cosplayer Interview with MrGnob


As we promised yesterday, we sent an interview invitation to MrGnob. And fortunately, we got a reply from her today. Can’t wait but sharing you details here, you also feel delighted? Thanks, Galina 😀

Q1. Please tell us something about yourself.

My name is Galina, I’m 25 years old. I’m from St-Petersburg, Russia. I’m a certificated oceanologist, but I’d like to be a costume designer.

Q2. When did you begin to do cosplay? You like it or got into it by some other reasons?

I began to do cosplay in 2005. I like it very much! And now I’d like to do not only cosplay, but some original projects too.


Q3. What’s your favorite cosplay and why?

My favourite cosplay is Isabella. I feel that this character suits me.

Q4. Have you ever met some difficulties in cosplay? And how did you solve them?

I feel difficulty in getting some materials, because we are living in Russia. But, if I can’t get it, I do it by myself.

Q5. I find you have so many stunning pictures displayed in the gallery. So, are you often photographed? Is there any suggestion for people? How can they look great while facing the lens?

Actually, I don’t like to be photographed, because I feel myself a little confused. But, when we do a photo session with friends, everything becomes simple and easy. We laugh a lot, and I don’t worry about defective frames. Do your pictures in that way as you like to see it on other cosplayers.


Q6. Is there any suggestion for which convention cosplay beginners can go?

I think if you want to start, you shouldn’t be afraid.

Q7. We do think your Astharoshe Asran cosplay seems ideal. So, how could you achieve this?

aww.. thanks a lot! =3 I and Kaikida have done this costume just for two weeks, because we are a good team. And I wanted this costume so much. So I couldn’t sleep well before we finished.

Q8. Any new plan you can’t wait to do?

Yep! A lot of plans! As I said, also I’d like to try myself in original costumes and couture.


Q9. Are your costumes made by yourself or bought?

Everything is made by myself and Kaikida. We are a team.

Q10. What are the good things of cosplay? And also, what are the bad things?

Cosplay teaches me a lot. It makes me self-confident and independent. It’s a good side! But cosplay takes a lot of time, I wish there could be more than 24 hours in a day =3.


I’m also a devotee for cosplay. To do well in this performance art, I’m interested in hunting for funny, gorgeous or fantastic pictures. From these breathtaking works and interviews done by cosplay talents, I always get inspired.
