Cosplay Spotlight: Interview with Gilded Moon Cosplay
ByDate: Mar 31 2016 Views:
How long have you been cosplaying?
I have been cosplaying for four years now, started back in 2012.
What first interested you in the hobby?
Well I started off just wanting to try it out. It was a super small convention, SwampCon in Gainesville. The next year I cosplayed Homestuck with some friends and fell in love with how intricate and beautiful some of the costumes were and it made me want to get better!
Which League of Legends characters have you cosplayed?
I have cosplayed as Sona, both in her Arcade and Silent Night skins.
Who is your favorite champion to use when you're playing seriously? What about when just messing around?
I love playing Jinx, she's my go to champ for serious play. When messing around... I don't know! I love playing ultimate bravery with friends and seeing what ridiculous champ build I have to deal with!
What's the most difficult cosplay you've made/worn and what made it difficult?
I think Arcade Sona wins most difficult. I had never made a hoop skirt before, and there I was trying to make one that was so specifically shaped! The Etwahl for that costume was also the first major prop that I had ever made and I tried to make it so it would come apart for easy travel, which didn't turn out super awesome but it held together for all the conventions that I wanted to bring her to.
How does going to a convention to cosplay compare to just going as a fan / "normal" person?
Well, actually, I feel really weird going to conventions not in cosplay unless I'm working the artist alley. Because of how my schedule used to be with school I didn't get many opportunities to go to conventions other than the few big ones, so I like taking advantage of every opportunity I can.
