Interview of Mikauke Cosplay (Poland)

Here's the interview of Mikauke Cosplay from Poland, it was made in 2018.

1. For how long have you been in cosplay ?

I think almost 2 years.

2. Cosplay is a time consuming hobby. how long does it take to craft your costumes ?

It depends. One month if I'm doing something really big and a week when it's something that doesn't take much time.

3. Any other hobby or passion besides cosplaying ?

Games, anime, japanese (which im studying on the university).

4. What materials are you using for cosplay crafting, worbla ? Foam ?

I have never used worbla but I wish i could. Usually, I use eva foam and hot glue for building props. There is not much to talk about because I've created one thing using those since I started cosplaying.

5. Do you have any favorite cosplayer ?

Awh so many of them ! But personally, I think that Kamui Cosplay would be the best choice. She is so inspiring and talented ! 

6. Did you hurt yourself while making a cosplay or in a convention ?

Many times ! Once i put my fingers into the 'fresh' hot glue without realising it. It was such a pain but I finished the project in the deadline.

7. Do you sell your old cosplays, or just keep it in a huge closet ?

Unfortunately, I need money for new cosplays, so i'm selling the ones, which I consider myself as not matching the character.

8. Who teached you to craft your cosplays ? Your family ? By reading books or watching youtube tutorials ?

No tutorials, no books. Just a little bit of knowledge provided by my friend about eva foam and painting the props.

9. Which conventions are you going to this year ?

Well, these are only in Poland but Asucon, Tsuru Japan Festival, PGA, IEM, Pyrkon.

10. What is your limit budget for a cosplay ?

If we are talking about dollars, then 60$-80$? Multiply it by 4 and you get the price in Poland.

11. Any future super secret cosplay project in mind ?

Jiangshi Mei from Overwatch. I've already bought fabrics and eva foam for this.

12. What are you doing in "real" life for a living ?

 Well, I'm just a weirdo student, I don't have any job or anything to earn money. 

13. You best experience from a convention ? And your worst ?

Best : I think meeting my role models from Poland ! We have so many talented cosplayers to follow their steps ! Worst : Hmm, it's actually hard to think of one... Maybe no room in the sleeproom, so I have to keep my cosplays on the corridor where everyone can do everything with them.

14. Any advice for cosplay wannabees or beginners ?

Keep an eye on every possible detail ! Those make your cosplays shine ! Remember about measuring your abilities ! Don't choose prodigious armors for your first time ! Try to find the thing you are capable of !

15. Do you have limits ? Some cosplays you will never make ?

I'm not very fit looking person, but it doesn't stop me from cosplaying what I want. For example i can show my belly ! There is nothing to be ashamed of (well maybe if I eat to much and I see this doesn't look good). The only thing that stops me would be a cosplay that is too sexy, I just can't play sexy characters and can't pose for photos like that !
