Cosplayer Interviews

Shhh, can you keep a secret because I can’t! I am bringing a new feature to All About Anime. I have been working on this for a while now and I am really excited about it. I am finally moving ahead with my cosplay interviews. I am excited to say that I have a few local cosplayers on board already and the ball is starting to roll.

Cosplayers don’t really get much attention, their cosplays do but the actual cosplayer gets a  ‘wham bam thank you ma’am’ kind of treatment. Yes, people love their cosplays and enjoy the fruits of the cosplayer’s efforts with a quick snap of the camera and then they move on not even letting the cosplayer see the photo. However, I want to show my appreciation as well as give the cosplayer the credit they deserve. But how? Of course by interviewing them and featuring them on my blog.

  1. Wow that’s a lot of questions! Can’t wait to see what some’s from it.
    Kinda felt bad after you mentioned that some cosplayers wanna see the footage after taking a few shots, but I’ve got limited battery life so need to switch off as soon as we’re done. Maybe I should invest in spare batteries.
