Truthful Comics- So Jacqueline, let's start by asking you how long have you been Cosplaying?
Jacqueline Gohner- I've been cosplaying from 2006-2008 and then 2012-present.
TC- Cosplay or Crossplay? Or both?
JG- I cosplay, but I would like to crossplay one day. Which character? Hehehehehe! You'll have to wait and see!
TC- Why do you Cosplay?
JG- I think it's a fun way to express my love for the character and series. I've always been a HUGE Zelda nerd and Witchblade fan, so whenever I'm done playing a game or finished reading a comic, I get so inspired that I have to make something with my hands and since I suck at drawing, making a costume is what I do.
TC- Is Cosplay a hobby you consider yourself doing for a long time?
JG- I'd like to think I've done it for a long time already, but I hope to continue doing it for a few more years.
JG- Homemade ALL the way! All of my costumes are made 100% by me from scratch.
TC- Do you have a current Cosplay fav?
JG- My Witchblade is currently my favorite mostly because it was the funnest to make, but overall I would say my Twilight Princess Zelda costume is my favorite.
JG- My most expensive cosplay would definitely be Twilight Princess Zelda.
TC- What Cosplay has gotten more attention from your fans?
JG- Haha! Probably Sara Pezzini (Witchblade).
TC- What is a cosplay pet peeve of yours?
JG- Hmmm... I don't like rude people. Cosplay is all about fun and good times. Rude people sort of ruin that sometimes.
TC- What was your first convention? What was the reaction?
JG- My first convention was Ani-Magic 2005, but I can't remember if I cosplayed then. But I do remember everyone was SO sweet and friendly, I just had to come back and do it again.
JG- Whichever one, most of the photos I get back have a little bit of work done to them by the photographer, but as long as the image looks fine, I couldn't care less if it was shooped or not.
TC- How do you pay for your Cosplays?
JG- Blood, sweat, and tears! Haha, no jk! With money!!!
TC- When do you do Cosplays? At conventions only?
JG- I cosplay mostly at conventions, but once in a great while I'll schedule a shoot outside of a con.
TC- What got you into Cosplaying?
JG- I really don't remember actually. I remember thinking to myself, "Why am I NOT doing this???" lol
TC- Well, thank you for your time and continued success in all your endeavors. We definitely look forward to your next Cosplays and who knows, maybe you'll be Cosplaying as one of Truthful Comics' characters in the near future!
