Cosplayer Interviews-Felix

Here, we have Felix from United State in our Cosplay Interviews. As an art student in college, Felix is working on becoming a teacher. In his gallery, you can find many wonderful artworks. Today we are going to talk about cosplay with Felix. Ok! Let’s share his cosplay experience together!

1.Please Introduce yourself first
Hi, my name is Felix.

2.What does cosplay mean to you?
Cosplay to me means being able to be someone else for a day.

3.What was your first cosplay?
My first cosplay ever is actually the one featured -The male
hero, Red, from the Pokemon Firered and Leafgreen games.

4.Does your family supports your cosplay?
My family actually made fun of me consistently for
cosplaying, heh. -But it was all in good fun, we all got to
joke around and laugh alot.

5. What is your most memorable cosplay experience?
My most memorable cosplay was when I went as Red. There
happened to be about twenty-five people cosplaying something
from the Pokemon series and everyone met up for a huge group
photo. The camera shots were going off for a good while.

6. What are your 2011 cosplay plans?
For the 2011 year I’d love to go as the male hero or N from
the Pokemon White and Black games, but as I’m not sure I’d be
able to afford another costume, convention ticket and hotel
room for a good while, I don’t think that will be happening any
time soon.

7.Do you make your costumes yourself or buy them ?
I made the costume myself for the most part. I took pre-made
things and modified them. For example, The backpack was a basic
solid black zip backpack. I added a top flap, primed it,
painted it yellow, painted the decals on, and added two
side-pockets made from plastic bottles.

8. Any other cosplayers you like?
I don’t know many other cosplayers, actually. But my friend
Laura does a good job whenever she cosplays.

9. Do some changes happen to you after cosplay?

10. Any advices you wanna share with cosplay newbies?
My advice for cosplay newbies would be to take your time
and do a little each day. Don’t put it off till the last three
days and then have to rush it.
