Q4. Difficulties in cosplay?

My height and figure!

Recently,I had a photoshoot with a cosplay partner.
Who so happened to be shorter than me but cosplaying a taller character than mine. We had to plan our poses for the shoot very carefully, experimenting at specified angles and try to be as accurate as we could!

Q5. What’s your favourite cosplay so far?

My favourite cosplay character is Kotori Minami 南ことり from Love Live. I think I’ve the same personality as Kotori-chan~

Kotori-chan is very cute!!! And ふわふわfuwa fuwa (Fluffy).

I’ll recommend Macha (Green Tea). Macha is very popular in Japan.

I’ll cosplay characters I like. Firstly, I’ll collect all the visual materials and start my making preparations. For the details, I’ll usually refers to multiple visual materials for better and more accurate details.

Q4. What’s your favourite cosplay so far?

Very tough and hard question…

Misa – :

Misa

Other than cosplay, I love to play games. I’m originally a gamer too! Games like League of Legends and DEA (Dance Evolution Arcade). I like to sing Karaoke and play at arcade~

Q2. What’s your favourite food in Singapore?

My favourite food is still chicken rice. I previously went back to Taiwan to find but it still can’t be comparable to the chicken rice I tried in Singapore. Usually, I’ll buy some before going back. My most recent trip to SG, I was given 5 packets of chicken rice by fans!!!!!

Q2. What Taiwanese food would you recommend?

I’ll recommend Taiwan famous smelly toufu. I really like to eat this. And I love to see people’s expression and having difficulty of eating smelly toufu. (Misa is such a S…Sadist)

Furthermore, also soya bean curb and mango ice.

Q3. Difficulties in cosplay?

I’m not suitable for some cosplay. I wanted to cos those ikemen, fierce-looking characters, but unable to do so. Maybe I’ll need better makeup skills, maybe some visual effects, and maybe cosplay more guys characters to break free from my current cute self image. Usually, I’ll cosplay those guy characters secretly at home, take a seflie and no more… In fact, my house have lots of male costumes just for your information. Hopefully, I’ll get better as time goes by.

Q2. What’s your favourite cosplay so far?
