Frequently Asked Questions:
Cosplay related (costumes, beauty and materials)
1: What was your first costume and why?
Rin Tohsaka, because it was an easy cosplay and because I really like her.
2: What is your favorite costume and why?
My fav costume is Ada Wong’s one. I spend a lot of time to make it and I like the fact that I don’t make it in satin as everyone does and it fits perfect. I love Ada and RE series since I was fifteen.
3: Where do you buy your wigs?
I buy my cosplay wigs on Ebay or on Aliexpress.
5: Where do you buy fabrics?
I buy almost all the fabrics of my cosplay in local stores in my town. Sometimes, when the stores don’t have the specific fabric (or color) I need, I buy on Tessuti.com .
6: Do you take commissions?
Yes, You can fill the form on the section “contact me” or send me a private message on my Facebook page.
7: Are you a professional seamstress?
I’m actually studying to become a professional seamstress and fashion designer.
8: What make-up brand do you use for cosplay?
I use more or less the same that I use daily. Brands are medium quality with very affordable prices as Kiko, Sephora, Maybeline and Elf .More expensive make-up do not make you automatically prettier than cheaper make-up. The important thing is learn to use it well.
9: How long do you work on your costumes? How much do they cost?
I’m a very lazy and slow seamstress. I need a lot of time to make something like I want to have it. But I don’t know how, sometimes I can be very fast and get quite good results. Also the costs vary a lot. There are some cosplays where I spent just 15€ (as I-pin) and others where I spent more than 200€ (as Etna’s cosplay stuff).
10: Are you a professional cosplayer?
I don’t consider myself a professional cosplayer. Cosplay is just a hobby that I make in my spare time and I consider the cosplay commissions as a part-time job. I have a normal job (more or less ) and I also study at a private academy. I love cosplay and modeling but, right now, I don’t consider it as a job.
11: Do you have a dream costume you’d like to make?
I have a lot of costumes I’d like to make… and I will try to get those dreams to life! I need just time and money…
12: What kind of character do you like?
I like loli, tsundere and yandere characters. I really appreciate petit body characters among the super busted girls that everyone loves (maybe because I’m a member of the flat chested team…..). Rarely I like ”femme fatal” characters as Ada Wong or Bayonetta.
13: What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
Final Fantasy concert at Etnacomics 2013, It was an happy experience. Me and my boyfriend where Rinoa and Squall and we enjoy all the concert dancing and making crazy thing as the chocobo racing ; everybody enjoyed about us.
14: Have you won any awards for your costumes?
I have won some awards with my cosplays. I’ve put a little crown on the preview image on cosplays that have won 1 or more prizes.
Shooting and conventions

Most of my pictures are edited by me, but the most amazing edited pictures I get are made by Silverground .
