I started cosplaying 'officially' way back 2005. (I started sewing and copying incomplete anime clothes 2003)
Officially in the sense that, I REALLY copied costumes from anime characters and game characters. Contact lenses, hair, et al. Moving on! This post isn't fully about me.
This is about the only people I truly admire.
In no particular order:
As a little background, she's a UP fine arts graduate. And as of now she's a freelance painter among a lot of other things. She's a digital artist, a seriously good photographer, she's great at makeup and she emotes awesomely. She's basically seriously blessed with creativity.
And honestly, she still gives me goosebumps whenever she's near me. *cough* Must compose thyself.
Yaya Han has been in the costume making industry for well almost TEN years. So at the times we can use "Expert" this might be the best time to do so. She's well learned at her craft and her costumes are just SPOT ON.
(As well as the fact that she's awfully blessed *cough*)
The late Saya
She passed recently, and I will not assume knowledge of how.
Anyway! Her cosplay legacy lives on. She's a Japanese Cosplayer and simply one of the best. She's considered an "Idol" in her own way. The way she stands out for me is the fact that she makes very simple girl characters seem so very beautiful.
That's about it!
While in truth there are a hell load of great cosplayers out there.
These three really inspire me. I've met only one of them but honestly, I think all great people have a certain amount of kindness to them. You can see it in the way they interact online and the way they smile in their pictures.
Thank you for viewing! Here's to an awesome June ahead of us. *cheers*
