1. Please Introduce yourself first?
Let’s just go with Attyca.

2.What does cosplay mean to you?

It’s a hobby and a business.

3.What was your first cosplay?

Technically Halloweentown Sora….but one I actually made without help was Kadaj from FF7 AC.

4. Does your family support your cosplay?

Yes, they think what I do is great and are always excited to see the pictures. My dad especially likes that I have my own little business going with doing commissions…moneymoneymoney right?

5. What is your most memorable cosplay experience?

Ahh definitly Kadaj in 07 when my friend was Yuffie…interesting things happen when crossplay is too convincing. Passerby comments are always the best.

6. What are your 2011 cosplay plans?

For Anime North I’ll be Juto from Magna Carta 2 and Howl, as for the rest of the year I’m unsure. It’ll depend on how much time I have.

7. If possible, which anime do you want to cosplay most?

I don’t usually cosplay from anime much, but for games I like anything with crazy armour or weapons. I’ve always loved Hyung-Tae Kim’s designs, so I’m sure I could find something nice in Blade and Soul.

8. Do you make costumes yourself or buy them?

I always make everthing myself. Most of the fun in cosplaying is learning how to make things and spending time on them. Actually wearing them to conventions isn’t as interesting to me.

9. Any other cosplayers you like?

I’ll be honest, I’m not that involved in the cosplay community to know of anyone in particular that I really like, but I always appreciate the people who do vacuum forming and casting. That sort of thing takes a lot of time and skill. Very impressive, and definitely something I’d love to try in the future.

10. Do some changes happen to you after cosplay?

I’m not entirely sure what that means. Not really? I guess after conventions there’s that eagerness to find funny photos, but not so much anymore.

11. Any advices you wanna share with cosplay newbies?

There are great tutorials all over the internet on how to make cosplays, props and whatnot if you’re stuck.
The most important thing though is to pick a character you really like and THAT SUITS YOU. As hilarious as Man Faye and Sailor Mans are, they’re not very ‘good’. Hah, yea, just keep that in mind.

12. When will you stop cosplay ?

Ahh I see the end is near. We’ll see. I’ll always enjoy making them, but once my real career in animation gets rolling I doubt I’ll have the time to make them and get out to conventions. Who knows.
