She doesn't have a large collection yet, but you can already see the eye she has for detail. When we last spoke, she was working on a cosplay of Ririchiyo Shirakiin in her Demon Form. I am sure it will be stunning from what we are about to see.
With that said, lets get to the interview :^D
My name is Naomi, I live in Pennsylvania, and I'm 14 years old
What first started you on the road to cosplay?
I saw a lot of people at New York Comic Con/ Anime Fest dressed up one year and I wanted to dress up so I went into cosplaying.
You seem to really really like Miku Hatsune. What drew you to this character?
When I was at New York Comic Con one year I saw this drawing of this girl named Miku. For about a month I forgot her name!!! So then I remembered her name and then I listened to all of her songs. Her first song I listened to was World Is Mine. Soon after that I wanted all of her video games and a plushie of her Cx
You have actually taken this to the next level with music mixes and videos of her. This seems very daring on your part. How did you feel making it and then seeing it on You Tube?
I felt so nervous at first!! Then when I saw how many view I had I got so excited! So it was very nerve-racking to make my mixes. It took me about 4 hours to make it. When I posted it I kept on redressing the page to see how many view I was getting! Yeah....now I sound desperate Cx I descided to take it a step further and make another video but of me dancing to it!
What conventions or shows have you cosplayed at so far?
Well since I am still a beginner I only go to one con a year which is New York Comic Con/Anime Fest but I want to go to other cons in different states and towns Cx
When not cosplaying, what do you do?
When not cosplaying I draw a lot! I also dance to anime songs and play flute Cx I love dancing so much although sometimes I dance to much and get a stomach ache! I started playing flute last August and I was first row in one of my concerts (that's a big deal by the way it means that your really good!) I can play super fast songs and really challenging songs. My friend in school this year helped me get better at drawing anime so I learned a lot in school!
Don't be so nervous!!! Ju st be yourself while cosplaying and don't take it to seriously!!! Cosplaying is for fun! So good luck and don't be scared! First start off with something easy and then move to something hard. If you are making your cosplay just take your time and be careful while sewing!!
