I always enjoy seeing cosplayers who cosplay for themselves, rather than the fame or likes. Not that it isn't okay to like those (I do it), but it's nice to see it be for enjoyment rather than popularity. When looking at their instagram, I really enjoyed seeing their Thorax from My Little Pony, since I never get to see side characters cosplayed. It's so creative and ingenious! I am also ALWAYS a sucker for Cowslip's designs, and their Butterfree is amazing.
What are your social media(s)? IG: KirinchanCosplay; Facebook: Kirin-chan Cosplay
How long have you been cosplaying? Technically 14 years
What got you into Cosplay? My best friend got me started. We went to an event together and she helped me put together my first cosplay (Merle from Escaflowne) and I've been hooked ever since!
Favourite Costume? Was it bought or made? Gosh that's a hard one... maybe Thorax? I make all of my cosplays (maybe with a couple purchased items like tights and accessories).
What are your goals as a cosplayer? To keep getting better and better!
Which Cosplayer inspired you to cosplay? I didn't really get inspired by anyone in particular to actually start. But Malinda-chan, Kamui Cosplay and Garnet Runestar are the ones that inspire me today!
Dream Cosplay? Amalthea by NoFlutter and Spinel by Desi_Desu
Favourite Skill of Cosplay? (Wig work, sewing, armor, etc) My favorite skill would probably be figuring out new ways to make things with fabric. Like figuring out how to make my wings for Thorax was a lot of fun for me.
