Truthful Comics- How long have you been Cosplaying?
Ysa Marie- I’ve been cosplaying since I was 14 years old!
TC- Cosplay or Crossplay? Or both?
YM- I’ve never done crossplay actually, but never say never!! : DD
YM- I cosplay, because I can take the creative side of me for a walk! I love the arts and being able to create something that I can wear brings joy into my life!
TC- Is Cosplay a hobby you consider yourself doing for a long time?
YM- I think I do! And even if I stopped cosplaying at some point in my life (I really doubt it) then I would still go to the conventions and walk around.
TC- Homemade Cosplay or bought/comissioned cosplay?
YM- Always homemade! Creating it is my favorite part!
TC- Do you have a current Cosplay fav?
YM- For now, my most recent one, Black Cat! Because it was comfortable to wear the whole day and I just love her personality!
YM- Hmm... I think Morrigan from Dark Stalkers, (details..details) o.o
TC- What Cosplay has gotten more attention from your fans?
YM- Well my Tifa Lockhart was the most that got attention and got me where I am now.
TC- What is a Cosplay pet peeve of yours?
YM- I don’t think I have any, but I guess when veteran cosplayers make fun of rookie cosplayers it reaaally annoys me.
YM- My first convention was at a DCC convention in Puerto Rico and I thought it was the most amazing place I’ve ever been, because it was full of people who I felt that understood my excitement for anime, video games and comics. It was my first interaction with other geeks haha!
TC- Photoshopped or un-photoshopped images?
YM- Photoshop! So you can add some bad ass backgrounds and or effects!!! >: D haha, but I also love naturally looking pictures.
TC- How do you pay for your Cosplays?
YM- With money that I make from work? Haha
YM- Not really! I also make them for photoshoots!
TC- What got you into Cosplaying?
YM- The being able to dress up as my favorite characters really intrigued me to start cosplaying! Trying to look as much as the character possible!
TC- Thank you for a fun interview. Hopefully we'll do this again soon, maybe spotlighting your newest Cosplays.
