Hello! I’m Daricio! I’ve been making cosplay costumes for a few years now, though I’m by no means a professional. I don’t have much of a budget for costume making, but I try my best with what I have, and I manage to get some pretty good results, considering. I have a lot of fun making and wearing my costumes!


Daricio‘s Bleach Cosplay Performance

1. Character: Ishida Uryuu

Description: Ishida Uryuu, Quincy. The collar got a little ruffled while I was posing, so it looks a little strange here… But this photo best shows the entire outfit.

Description: Should I have smiled for this picture? I don’t know…


Here’s a simple interview:

Q: How did you know our contest? And how much have you known about

A: I discovered the contest through a link from deviantart, I think. Before that, I’d never heard of

Q: Is Bleach cosplay your favorite theme? Which character from Bleach do you most like? Is the costume for this character covered here or in our store?

A: Yes, Bleach cosplay is my favorite theme, though I’ve recently been branching out and trying costumes for other fandoms as well. My favorite character is definitely Ichigo’s inner hollow, though I love most of the characters from Bleach, including Ishida Uryuu (obviously). Ichigo’s hollow does have a costume in the store, but my favorite costume for Ishida (the one that I cosplayed) isn’t here.

Q: What’s your first cosplay? How do you think about it? Is there any photo shared with us?

A: My very first cosplay outfit was Urahara Kisuke, which I created as a Halloween costume for my little sister. Considering that I modified a dark green bathrobe bought from a thrift store to make the coat, it turned out pretty good. Strangely, I don’t seem to have any pictures of this costume.

Q: Is there any cosplay plan recently? Or which cosplay convention are you interested in taking part in?

A: I just finished making a costume for Princess Zelda from Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (also for my little sister) and my next project is going to be a matching Sheik costume for myself. My sister and I went to Sakuracon 2011 (our first convention), and I really hope to be able to go to that again!

Q: How long will you continue to do cosplay? Or do you think you will do it all the time? What does cosplay mean to you? Is there any element rather attractive for you?

A: Cosplay is just a hobby for me, mostly because I don’t have enough money to make costumes very often, but I hope to be able to continue making them for as long as I am able! Cosplay is, for me, a really fun way of showing my love for the fandoms and characters that I cosplay. I love improving my skills little by little, and making costumes that people like.

Q: We will be interested to know the most memorable moment you got during cosplay.

A: At Sakuracon, I was stopped in the hallway so that someone could take a picture of my Ishida costume. After I posed for the picture, she asked if she could have a hug, so I did. It made me really thrilled that someone actually recognized and liked my costume, since whenever I wear my cosplay costumes for Halloween, I usually get a lot of strange guesses. (“Are you… Princess Leia?”)

Q: It’s believed our cosplay fans will be grateful if you can share us with your experience in this performance art. What’s the most important aspect for a cosplay beginner?

A: The most important aspect for a beginner is to have fun and don’t be a perfectionist. The more you work on your skills, the better you get, so don’t think that everything has to turn out exactly right the first time. Stitches can always be taken out if mistakes are made.

Q: Do your family members support you? Do you often talk about your cosplay works with them? Do they also love what you’ve done?

A: My little sister is the reason I started making cosplay outfits in the first place, since she wanted a costume and I actually know how to sew. She’s the one who typically gives me ideas for what costumes to make next. My parents think my hobby is a little strange (and a bit expensive) but my mom recently gave me her old sewing machine, and she helped me take the photos, so I like to think she supports my strange ideas.
