Hey there! Mizucon has come and gone for yet another year. The convention was held at the Miami DoubleTree Hotel right at the end of summer. School has started and we the fans of videogames, anime, and Japanese culture have to put on our regular clothes and go back to school. But we can always look back at the last convention of the summer which was filled with great things to see and do.
Some of the highlights included the 3000 Brigade’s new show, which featured various videogame characters fighting it out over ownership of their show. This show featured many extravagant costumes and dance routines that many fans enjoyed and has come to be the main draw of the convention.
On my last post i started interviewing Florida cosplayer: Brittany Jung, as she cosplayed as Zelda from The Legend of Zelda.
Now we will continue our interview as we learn about Brittany’s experiences as one of the most well known and beloved Nintendo Princesses of all time: Princess Zelda.
Today we will be continuing our VideogameCosplay Interview series, today we have a Florida cosplayer known as Brittany Jung as she cosplays Zelda from The Legend of Zelda. She is a 22 year old cosplayer that studies photography, she aspires to one day run her own costume photography studio. She started gaming around 6 or 7 years old, playing the original Legend of Zelda back on the NES. Now she enjoys RPGS, action/adventure, and fighting games. Her favorite game is Kingdom Hearts.
Hey there this is Onizuka Chris and I am here to provide you with a look into the life of Florida’s cosplayers and their costumes. I will be interviewing local cosplayers and letting you find out more about them. Every month I will be interviewing a new cosplayer. This time I would like to feature one of Orange Anime’s own staff member. Jillian Husted, also known as “Ixka1kai” on the forums. She will be sharing her experiences as she talks about her cosplay of Larxene from Kingdom Hearts.
1. As a female cosplayer, why did you take an interest in this character and how close does the character resemble your personality?
I would say that Larxene is pretty much the exact opposite of me (except for maybe the b****y part). I wanted a character where I can be what I am not and attempt to have some more confidence. What initially drew me to Larxene in particular was the fact that she wanted to overthrow the ultimate evil to get a greater position of power.
