Interview: Kanda Midori (JP)8

// September 26, 2010

The first cosplay I ever did was Asuka Langley Shoryu of Neon Genesis Evangelion. I’d been a fan of her character for quite some time, and I decided that if I ever did cosplay, I wanted it to be Asuka. The first event I ever attended was Harumi.

When I was around 12 or 13, I saw Neon Genesis Evangelion for the first time. It was shocking, really, not only because of the world it presented, but also because each and every character was very powerful individually. I started cosplaying because I liked Asuka very much, but making the costume and coming up with the right kind of make-up was very hard work. Still, I really wanted to portray her character right.
Then again, I guess I can say that about every single character I’ve cosplayed as. Portraying an actual character as accurately as possible is a lot of hard work.

  8. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all is required to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very internet smart so I’m not 100% positive. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
