Name: Tenchi Bery
I’m Tenchi Bery. I’m 26 and live in Florida. I’ve been cosplaying since 2000. I actively compete in costume contests and enjoy big challenging costumes. I run a costume commissioning and photography company named Tenchi Bery Enterprises.
Tenchi‘s Bleach Cosplay Performance
Character: Abarai Renji
Description: Abarai Renji with Zabimaru in Bankai Form from Bleach. I LOVE Renji and hope to eventually make all his forms. This is a giant project that took 6 months and cost over $600. I shaved my own head for it. I also wove my own sandals. I like to say that the only part of this costume and prop that I didn’t make was the socks…I only altered those.
Here’s a simple interview:
Q: How did you know our contest? And how much have you known about Miccostumes.com?
A: I was invited to join via FB. Notthing.
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: Not at all. Abarai Renji or Kuchiki Byakuya. His Gotei 13 outfit is, but mine is Bankai.
Q: What’s your first cosplay? How do you think about it? Is there any photo shared with us?
A: Ranma 1/2 – Ra-chan back in 2000. Went to my first con, went home and threw it together for the next day of the con.
Q: Is there any cosplay plan recently? Or which cosplay convention are you interested in taking part in?
A: Right now I’m not planing much. Trainee Grell from Kuroshitsuji: Will the Shinigami OVA and Oga Tatsumi from Beelzebub.
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: Forever? I have so many plans for when I’m older. Lol Cosplay means everything to me. It’s an expression of my fandom, it’s an expression of my art it’s an expression of me. But almost all cosplayers are fond of the attention so admittedly that’s part of it.
Q: We will be interested to know the most memorable moment you got during cosplay.
A: There are SO many. I’ve been cosplaying since Nov. 2000. One of my favorites though was at Anime Festival Orlando XI. I was dressed as Sonozaki Shion form Higurashi no naku koro ni and just wandering the halls. A had a young man come running from across the convention center shouting “SHION!! SHION!!!” He gets up to me, camera in hand, and tells me that he LOVES Shion and that seeing my cosplay just made his con….and that he wants a picture. lol It’s another aspect of cosplay that I love though. To make fans happy just from wearing a well made costume.
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: Perseverance. Experience is the key with cosplay. The more you get used to crafting odd shapes and pieces the better it gets. Don’t be afraid to try, don’t let yourself get discourraged and just keep at it. ^_^
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: Some do some don’t. My mom is pretty supportive. It’s only my biggest and most insane things that everyone kinda backs off from. I talk about my cosplay with anyone who will listen and frankly sometimes they’re the only ones who are even willing to listen lol My mom often says that she likes seeing me transform plain looking craft supplies into such awesome pieces.
