Otaku Aniverse caught up with Lycorisa from United States to talk about all things anime and cosplay.

 üWhat are your hobbies and do you consider yourself an otaku?

Wells my favourite hobby is cosplay teehee obviously.Besides that I also love drawing especially manga and portraits!I also enjoy piano although I’m not good at it at all hahaha. I’m not sure if I watch/know enough about anime to be an otaku.But I guess I’m an otaku in training LOL.

üHow did you first get into anime/cosplay/gaming?

My dad’s friend got me into anime when he let me watch Shaman King and Yu Yu Hakusho for the first time hahaha.I got into gaming when I was in 3rd grade.I was pretty much a loner so I spend most of my time playing games watching anime ^.^

I heard of cosplay long before I started cosplaying.I thought that you had to buy cosplays costumes but then I found out you can actually make it LOL and so I started sewing and such.

üWhat was one of your most memorable moments while cosplaying?

I have so many!Every time I finish a costume is always memorable.But I guess my first con is most memorable! Although it was small but first con plus first time cosplaying at con is the best!! I got to meet cosplayers face to face and had a great time with everyone!

üWhat kind of anime do you like?

SHOUNEN!!! Like One Piece, Bleach, D.Gray-man.As long as it’s not about romance hahaha J.I also love comedy ones, too.

üWhat is your favourite genre of video games?

RPG; I’ m a huge Final Fantasy, Golden Sun fan!

I love RPG and zombie games teeheee.

üWhat comes to mind when you hear people say the word “anime” or “cosplay”?

Hmm when I hear anime I think of cosplay hahahaha!

And whenever I hear cosplay I think of wigs!! Lots and lots of it!

üWhat does cosplay mean to you personally?

To me cosplay is something that I enjoy doing and it’s something that brings joy to my life! I love all the fun memories it brought me and my friends! It’s definitely a very productive and exciting hobby!Also the wonderful people you meet are just so exciting!

üWhat are some of your favourite anime conventions?

Sadly I have only been to one.I’m still noobish with the cosplay-world hahaha. But I am looking forward to attending more cons and even over seas one in the futureJ!

üAre you a fan of the PS3, Xbox 360, Wii, PSP or DS?

I would have to say PS3.I love DS, too because it has a lot of cute games like harvest moon ^^.

üWhich anime/gaming character can you relate most to? Why?

I have no idea really... maybe kyubey from Puella Magi because I’m evil and creepy like Kyubey LOL.Well I’m not really sure which character; there’re so many to think about hahaha :).

üIf you could spend a day with any anime/gaming character, who would you choose and why?

Luffy from One Piece!! It’ll be an awesome adventure spending time with him.Yes

I’m a huge One Piece fan hahahaha.

üWhat changes do you want to see most in the anime industry?

I guess more adventure/action anime and less fanservice anime.I don’t hate fanservice anime but I’m not much of a fan of it hahaha.I would also love to see better English dubbed anime.

üIf you could meet any celebrity in the anime/cosplay/gaming industry, who would it be and why?

Odacchi!!! He’s my favourite manga-ka ever!Hahaha I would ask him to sign my straw hat teeheee! I would also like to meet all the seiy? in One Piece and ask them to let me join their day at work and maybe I can do some voice acting, too hahahaha!

Oh! I would also love to meet as many cosplayers as I can!

üHere is your chance to include or say anything you want. Go!

Hello everyone~ I would like to encourage anime fans to start cosplaying and don’t be afraid to try it! If you put your effort into it, nothing is impossible^^! I would also like to thank everyone who supported me in cosplaying especially my best buddy~!
