Starting today, Cosplay Gen will weekly present one cosplayer or  photographer  whom we’d like to promote on our website.

For this week, we chose to feature Tsubaki-chan, an Australian cosplayer already known at local conventions, who also coordinates various panels. For her latest cosplay panel, she chose as theme “Cosplay on any budget - Cosplay for Poor Students & Rich Fortunates”, which will be presented at SMASH!, a convention held in Sydney. Tsubaki-chan has a quite wide range of costumes, such as Caska from Berserk, Sakura from Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle, Kadaj from FF VII Advent Children, and Nene Romanova from Bubblegum Crisis – Tokyo 2040.

First of all, my skill set and level of quality evolved over the past 10 years. I learned how to sew when I got into cosplay, and I am completely self-taught, so, depending on the costume I wanted to make, I had to learn new skills and evolve in my sewing and crafting techniques. These days I feel fairly confident that I could tackle almost any costume that catches my interest, but I also want to continue to challenge myself and hone my skills.

I had actually planned this Lightning cosplay very early on, in 2007, but never started it till very much later, choosing instead to debut Noctis Lucis Caelum (FFVersusXIII) first. Sketches, drafts and blueprints weren’t actually worked on until 2009, when I decided (on the very last minute, as usual) to attend an end-of-year event in Singapore as part of a Final Fantasy XIII team.

This costume was a collaboration with LimeBarb, so she handled most of the fabric work while I did the “hard” pieces (mask, prop, skates).  All in all, it took about 3 months to complete.

Burst Angel was the second anime that I watched. And the moment my eyes laid on Jo when she made her appearance, I fell in love with her. An absolute assassin, who was born for that role, tagged with a lean body illuminated with the “purple wings of death” (the tattoo) that appear when she wields Jango; she is truly appealing to my tastes.

When making costumes, I generally look for something that is appealing to the eyes and seems challenging to make. It is just a funny coincidence that a lot of the costumes and weapons I like come from games made by Square Enix. Haha~

In Moscow there are over 500 cosplayers and cosplay-groups, I think. Maybe even more. We got a lot of festivals, where I usually take part!

It took 3 months to build the first version in 2008, and an additional 2 weeks for an updated version in 2009. All of it is completely hand-made out of craft foam, foamboard, vinyl, and polystyrene plastic sheeting. The most difficult part was designing for comfort and mobility. I could be in it for hours and hours and not have to worry about keeling over from exhaustion. It’s really very lightweight.
