Welcome back to what was an weekly staple on our old blog and what we hope to make a major part of this one! We love cosplay. I dabble in making props myself and love seeing the passion and work put into some amazing cosplays of all kinds. Every week we will feature a new cosplayer and their work here! We will ask them some every day questions and what their plans our just so you can get to know them more!
This week we start off with a childhood favorite of mine! Sonic the Hedgehog holds a special place in my heart so it was common sense for me to start with none other than Sonic the Cosplayer! Let’s jump into it and get to know him a little better!
What got you into doing cosplay to begin with?
I’ve been going to conventions for over 10 years now and always enjoyed the costumes and creativity around them, it was such an energizing feeling. Combine that with me being a ridiculously large fan of Sonic the Hedgehog, I asked my mom to craft a suit for me….then I saw some fan art of Sonic dressed up as different characters, and BAM: Sonic the Cosplayer 😀
What is your fondest memory at a convention?
ANY and EVERY time a child comes up to me overly excited!
I started cosplaying because it made me happy but a huge reason I continue it is because of the happiness of others (don’t get me wrong, I will cosplay until I physically can’t, but this is just another fantastic reason!)
What’s the last song you listened to?
Ol’ Red – Blake Shelton
Would you rather only have soda, tea, or coffee is you could only have one for the rest of your life?
COFFEE! JAVA! GOTTA GO FAST!
I mean yea, coffee is ok
what is your favorite video game besides Sonic?
Jak and Daxter trilogy. Hands down BEST besides Sonic.
What is the next costume you will be working on and what are your plans for the rest of 2017?
Idk…but I think it has something to do with busting ghosts
And as far as the rest of 2017: MegaCon, SuperCon, StarWars Celebration, AFO, MetroCon, DragonCon, TBCC and maybe like, 2-3 sprinkled in there 😀
