Name: Selina Lin
Hello, I’m Selina and I’m 14 years old. I was born in and I live in Melbourne, Australia. I started cosplaying two years ago after seeing the passion of beautiful cosplayers at an anime con, and since then I’ve never looked back.
Naruto Cosplays Done by Xylina
Comment: In this photo I tried to portray Tenten looking towards the future and her ambitions of being a kunoichi as strong as Tsunade. I like the way that the positioning turned out.
Comment: My favourite photo, representing Tenten’s fiery spirit and her determination in battles. It was quite tricky to set the fire in the right places.
Comment:Tenten’s more feminine side. Just enjoying the smell of the flowers and a warm blanket on a nice day. I wanted to show that even though Tenten is serious about becoming a strong ninja, she has her girlish side.
Comment:Climbing up to a destiny as a strong kunoichi without looking back.
Here’s an simple interview:
Q: Which Naruto costume listed as prizes do you most want?
A: It’s a hard choice, but I would choose Tenten, Hinata or Temari. I honestly can’t choose!
Q: What’s attractive to you about cosplay?
A: I think that the most attractive thing about cosplay is that you get to throw your own personality into portraying someone that might be completely different to you.
Q: Your most memorable moment while cosplay?
A: Standing in the freezing rain while a photographer tried to get a nice photo of me, haha.
Q: Are you often photographed? Since many cosplayer (especially beginners) feel nervous or unnatural while facing the lens, would you like to sharing us some experience or skills here?
A: Often photographed? Yes I am! Well of course I have those moments that I don’t know what to do, because of various reasons like I’m not prepared physically or just confidence wise, but I have been cosplaying since I was 14 and I am kind of used to it. I just think that I have to overcome it and try to pose the best way I can for the photos that people want from me. I also try to teach my friends not to be scared of the camera either!
Q: Is there any cosplay plan you are rather interested in yet not able to do it due to some reasons? And what is your next plan?
A: I’m planning to cosplay Minori from Toradora! and Menma from AnoHana. I wish that I could make a cosplay PV for Secret Base~ kimi ga kureta mono or Pre-Parade but that’s probably a little far off.
Q: Which cons do you want to participate recently? What is your favorite part about going to cons?
A: I want to go to Comic Con because I’ve never gone there. But since I am only in sacramento I think I would be able to go to Sac anime or sac con more often.
Q: How do your family members think of your cosplay? Do you also feel interested and support you?
A: My mother is my main supporter in cosplay, and she helps me way too much with sewing and such. Also, my sister often does photography for me, which is really helpful because I can just drag her along any day, any time instead of hassling other people! My dad is definitely a supporter as well. He helped set up some of my photos, especially the one with fire all around me!
