I’m Back once again like a summer breeze with another installment of Interview with a Cosplayer! But before the usual pleasantries I have a quick annoucement to make. Due to my job’s unpredictable hours and the amount of super cool cosplayers involved I’ll be making this post weekly to streamline things for me so to anyone involved please be patient with ya boy!!!!!
But upwards and onwards we go, this time we head to Hungary for a chat with the ultra dope Art_Gories. This double threat Cosplayer and SFX artist definitely raises the bar with her mind blowing works of art, totally blurring the line between fantasy and reality. This girl is no slouch and could easily make a name for herself. So lets crack this baby open and get started.
What is the Cosplay scene like in Hungary?
Well. In Hungary, we have 5 or 6 events every year where I can cosplay any character.
What got you into the art of Cosplay?
I have always been loving acting, or trying to play someone else. When I was 12 I started to explore the Marvel and DC universe better. I spent a Halloween dressed up like Harley Quinn (who is one of my favourite character since I was 13) Then I met a whole bunch of people who encouraged me. I do SFX makeups too, and sometimes the sfx makeup is the cosplay (like little red riding hood).
Who are your favorite characters to Cosplay or SFX?
Lady Deadpool, Captain Marvel, Judy Hopes, Joker, Little Red Riding Hood
Can you tell me what it took to make this particular design? (Time, cost, materials, etc)
It depends on the cosplay. If it is a suit, like Lady Deadpool, it costs much (because the fake leather), and it takes me weeks to sew it. The make up is a different question. The material is usually normal priced, the time depends on the character but normally 2-4 hours.
Who/What is your biggest inspiration?
I often choose a character from a tv series, and the character inspires me. Or when I do SFX makeup it often happens that a picture can inspire me too.
What are the Biggest cons in Hungary right now?
MondoCon or PlayIT. MondoCon is a convention for those who love Japanese culture but nowadays there are more cosplayer from games, films or series.
What is your favorite cosplay moment?
When I’m on the way to a convention, and on the street someone stop me, and take a picture.
What is your cosplay horror story?
When I mess up the sewing…. It takes me hours to fix it, Sometimes I can but sometimes I really can not.
Where do you see the art of Cosplay in the next 5-10 years?
I think it will grow bigger and bigger, so I hope it will be accepted everywhere. Even here in a little Middle-European country like Hungary.WR
