We've seen a lot of people doing these journals recently! So we would like to try it as well! With that said, all you have to do is ask us a question, please keep the questions appropriate, and we will answer your question and feature three of your deviations!
Can't wait to hear what you guys come up with! asks:
"What is your favorite character to cosplay?"Answer:
Well, I (Liv) am speaking for Max here, but I'm pretty sure her favorite character to cosplay is Princess Tutu. She always dances and twirls around in that costume and it suits her really well. My favorite character to cosplay is Queen Frostine. I love wearing that gigantic cupcake dress asks:
"Will you be mad if I can't make it to Katsucon next year?"Answer:
Absolutely not! It's completely understandable that you can't make it to the convention. I hope we can see you in 2015 though! asks: "
Next time I see you, (which will be at Katsu) can I hug you and pinch your cheeks because you're both totally adorable?"Answer:
Yes, yes you may! Just don't pinch our cheeks too hard! asks:
"What are your upcoming costume plans for next year that you are most excited about?"Answer:
Actually, that's great that you asked that. The plans that we are most excited for is a secret cosplay we're working on for Katsucon 2014! We've never done a "secret cosplay" before, so we're pretty excited! asks: "
Are you as excited as I am for Katsucon this year?"Answer:
Yes! We're super pumped for Katsucon--especially since we did not attend Otakon this summer. We're in con withdrawal! asks: "
What has been your most difficult costume to construct (not so much how long it took, but how hard it was to actually plan, get materials for, and put together)?"Answer:
I think the hardest costume we've made is the Queen Frostine cosplay--definitely. It was a lot of fabric, a lot of time, and a lot of required patience. asks: "
Will you be attending Tekkoshocon (Tekko) 2014 in Pittsburgh and Otakon 2014 in Baltimore?"Answer:
We've actually never heard of Tekkoshocon before, is it a nice con? However, Otakon 2014 is a big possibility since we usually attend asks:
"Will you be making anymore Studio Ghibli cosplays? "Answer:
Yes! I (Liv) am planning on cosplaying Sophie from Howl's Moving Castle. One of our younger sisters is cosplaying Kiki for Katsucon 2014! asks:
"What is one of the most memorable things that has happened to you while in cosplay?"Answer:
Definitely, one of the most memorable things that happened was at this past Katsucon. We were getting off the escalator and this little girl was waiting below. She was freaking out when she saw Max and I. She really didn't know who we were cosplaying (Queen Frostine and Princess Lolly), but was just excited that a queen and a princess with poofy dresses were willing to talk to her. She was absolutely one of the most adorable little girls I have ever met. It made my day! asks: "
What is your most memorable experience cosplaying at a convention?"Answer:
Probably the day we were asked to do a videoshoot with Acksonl at Katsucon 2012. On our way down to the dock area, this little girl came running up screaming PRINCESS TUTU! And glomped the heck out of Max. She couldn't have been more than six years old. She was absolutely adorable. She legitimately thought that Max was Princess Tutu and gushed that she loved her so much, she wanted to be a dancer too someday, etc. etc. It was just an awesome day! asks:
"What cosplays are you ladies most looking forward to wearing/creating?"Answer:
Definitely our secret cosplay for Katsucon 2014! asks:
"What are your favourite and worst materials to work with when making costumes/cosplaying?"Answer:
I think one of the best materials that we've worked with are different polyblend fabrics. They're easy to work with and they have a beautiful rich texture. My Fakir cloak is made out of a dark red polyblend fabric. I really like how the cloak moves and it is visually pleasing. Worst material to work with....hmm. I'd have to say it isn't the worst, but it was the most difficult material to work with thus far, is bridal satin. My Queen Frostine cosplay is made out of bridal satin. It's extremely slippery and difficult to work with--go slow on the sewing machine because it might just slide off the side out of your fingertips. asks:
"Is there any skill or material that you absolutely want to learn for your future cosplay projects?"Answer:
Yes! We're still quite new to sewing. So we are constantly learning and trying to improve. I think one type of fabric that both my sister and I would like to learn how to utilize is stretch fabrics! Sailor scouts and superhero cosplays would be great to do in the future!
