Cosplay talents share their cosplay experience while doing an interview. Today, American girl Lycorisa is invited by us. Her Black Rock Shooter Yomi Takanashi cosplay does leave a deep impresses for most of our cosplay fans. I also feel rather fascinated about her natural & appealing appearance. Luckily, we get a chance to better know her. Now, let’s begin the interview.
1. Please introduce yourself first.
Hello everyone! I’m Lycorisa, but you can call me Lyco for short! I chose this name because Lycoris is my favorite flower tehehe. I’ve been cosplaying for about a year and a half so I’m still noobish.
2. What does cosplay mean to you?
Oohs! Cosplaying means a lot to me hahaha! It gives me opportunity to do things that not many people get to do. It’s a challenging hobby and it’s really exciting! And the people I met thanks to this hobby is something I will never forget. And it’s a hobby that can bring people together no matter how different they are! And it makes my life very enjoyable! haha I can go on and on about this teehee.
3. What and when was your first cosplay?
Oh noo~~ Not this!! Hahha well it’s a very cwappy wappy Misa from Death Note. Pssh! I’m not even gonna count that as a cosplay hahaha. My first cosplay with complete wig and all that would be just Be Friend Luka last year in may^^.
4. What is your most memorable cosplay experience?
Ooh waah so much! I think my first convention is most memorable! I went into the con as Vanille and had so many people wanted pictures of me. Hahaha I was so confused; I didn’t know what was going on xD. But I was so happy that other people like my cosplays! And I met other people who cosplay like me! So it was very very super special moment~
5. What’s your favorite photo shoot?
I love all my shoots! Hmm favorite… I would have to say my Synchronicty shoot! It was very cold and windy. While near some logs, I got stuck in thorn bushes! I couldn’t move at all hahaha xD! And one of the thorns flicked my Len in the eye and he stepped on ant hill. Basically nature attacked my whole crew hahaha. And the public thought we were taking wedding photos LOL!

Yes yes~ A lot of One Piece cosplays especially the SOGEKING cosplay~ ( I am a huuuge One Piece nerd !!! ) and I would like to do Serenaide from Eternal Sonata!
8. Do you make your costumes yourself or buy them?
I make all my cosplays^^. I can’t read patterns haha so confusing! But I can draft patterns. For casual cosplays I like to buy a cheap shirt and alter it to save time.

Yes~!! I like anyone who help out and inspire others to cosplay~ xD I admire cosplayers who do insane stuffs like Yuurisans, K-A-N-A, Tasha, Kaname, Anathiell, Kipi xDD many more!
