Costume: Forest Spirit from Princess Mononoke
“It’s actually like a deer animal and he’s the spirit of the forest. He’s the one that gives life or takes life and I decided to go ahead and cosplay as him and turn him a little more feminine and turn him into my own interpretation.”
How long did it take to make your costume?
“About six months to finish everything.”
“I eventually want to get a degree in cos¬tume designing and make costumes for movies so that’s my goal. That’s what I’m striving for and cosplay is perfect to get some practice in.”
“If you’re going to cosplay always try to think outside of the box. Something that you wouldn’t think would be able to work as a material for a prop, or for example my feet, most definitely it will work. Just think outside of the box and have fun with it.”
