When and how did you get started in Cosplay?
Since 2009, thanks my sister and my best friend, fan of videogames, anime and manga like me. When I was 17, I was a very different girl. Very shy and insecure, but with a big “interior life”…the cosplay helped me so much to work on myself, my personality. Interpreting someone that wasn't me, helped me to understand myself and what I wanted, who I wanted to be in and go out my "personal shell”. Cosplay has strengthened me more than I imagined.
What was your first Cosplay?
Tifa Lockhart from final fantasy vii: advent children
What was the most difficult character?
Probably Rena Night Watcher because I made her at 100% by myself. But honestly I'm applied so much for all my cosplays. Interpretation, photographies, poses, plot, atmosphere...In all cosplay is very different and I need to prepare me "inside and outside" for all of them!
What characters are you planning and type of character are you drawn to?
In this moment I wish to wear in other exhibitions my new cosplay of Jill Valentine of resident evil 5! In the future I wish to make a cosplay of Kotori Minami of Love Live and make some "remake" of my cosplay of Lili Rochefort of Tekken and Euphemia Li Britannia of Code Geass.
What is your process when starting from the beginning with a new cosplay?
For me the passion and the "emotional involvement" are the most important thing. Every character I played is a period of my life. A time when I liked some things, where I changed and grew up. Each character encloses a part of me, of what I was or what I wanted to be. When I choose a cosplay is always a very personal moment.
Are there any helpful hints in sewing, costume design or any other aspects of your cosplay that you discovered in doing your creations?
I'm autodidact so I really don't know. You have to think a lot and be careful! Tissues, accessories, commissions and purchases ... you need to look everything! Because many people try to speculate and it's terrible! But specially you have to love the character you choose, because cosplay is not just exhibitionism.
You’ll see the difference between exhibitionists and who really love the cosplay.
Do you have a preferred brand of makeup in your cosplay? And if so why?
No, I use everything^^ Not so much expensive but natural.
What are you listening to?
I love metal alternative songs.
Code Geass Lelouch of rebellion
Favorite TV Shows?
The Simpson !!
Is there a scene from a anime, cartoon, movie or tv show that left a big impression on you and what was it?
Silent Hill saga's and in particular the letter of Mary. But Silent Hill in general is a videogames with a lot of scenes changed me and my perspectives of life and of people.
The strange case of doctor Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
Silent Hill, Resident Evil and Final Fantasy's saga.
Fast Food/ Junk Food of choice?
Nooo...I know I'm terrible but I hate junk food xD I love vegetables and fresh fruits.
I love all sweets with fruits and honey <3
Favorite Breakfast cereal?
Italian breakfast is my only breakfast. Coffee and a piece of plumcake^^
Is there something not going on in the cosplay world that you would want to see or is there something you would want to change?
More event in Italy, specially here in the south. So the people could have more culture, more atmospheres and understand what really cosplay is!
What was your favorite toy growing up?
Of my childhood? My peluches of a big fox, Popona!
Who is your biggest character crush and why?
I don't know, honestly I don't hate a character in particular.
You enter a warehouse. There is little light, but you are able to find your way around. The sound of music draws you to a corner of the warehouse. There are FIVE GHOUL CLOWNS, playing a dancing video game. They have razor sharp teeth and scary weapons. Magic can not affect them; they sense your presence and turn facing you. They run to you to attack. Time to fight! What character would you want to be to defeat them and how would you handle the situation?
Reminds me Until Dawn! I'm a resident evil fan, I love horror survival atmosphere. I choose Jill Valentine for the cold blood and determination of a soldier!
If you had to be chained with a character for one year, what would be the character and what would you do?
Uhm, I have not understand the question. If I could stay with a character for a year, it’s Raven of elsword. He is very serious and rude but he is a formerly prepared and clever soldier! I would recognize him every skills!
You can have dinner with your favorite character. And at this dinner you may ask one question. Who would be the character and what would be your one question?
Lisa Garland of Silent Hill. I have no question, I wanted to talk a lot about the story, theories, and the experience lived! I love talking so much (too much ahah)!
What's number 1 on your bucket list? (Something you want to do before you leave the planet).
Bring family, dogs and cats with me! And so much optimism! We always have to fight. Even just for yourself.
What advice would you give to people getting started in Cosplay?
Cosplay is a genuine hobby. Don't forget it!!! The most important thing is having fun. It seems obv, but it is not at all! Nothing speculation, nothing popularity... there is just you, your passion and your favorite character!
I'm Lilituh, hi! I'm shy but not introverted. I'm a cosplayer, photographer for hobby, fan of videogames, anime and manga. I love so much drawing and writing. I love cooking, watching film action and I really love the survival horror!
