Welcome to CosFriday bringing you more of the awesome cosplayers from our 2018 Charity Calendar raising money for beyondblue (available to order now).
So kick back and say hi to Chaotic King!
What’s your name & how old are you? Chaotic King, 20 but barely
How long have you been cosplaying? Nearly 3 years
What inspired you to start cosplaying? I was dragged to my first convention by my friend back in high school and was thus exposed to the hell that is cosplay. I was intrigued and followed a few (hundred) people online. ‘Research’, you know… research.
What was your First Cosplay? Danny Vasquez from Bravest Warriors. I don’t think any photos still exist, but I really want to revamp him!
What is your most recent cosplay? Spicy Boy Keith from Voltron: Legendary Defender.
What cosplays are you currently working on? Keith, but another version! I’m working his Blade of Marmora suit from season 4.
Who are your favourite cosplayers in the community? Rebirth cosplay! We work together on many of our projects which mostly turn into collaborations, haha. They are much better at sewing than me and I have styled many of their wigs. Knitemaya was one of the first cosplayers I followed and he inspire me a lot.
I was super excited when I found out he is Australian because most cosplayers online at the time were from America, so it was really amazing to know that us Aussies had a shot too! Hannah and Hilly from The Hillywood Show are some of the most talented cosplayers that I know! Not only in the costuming and makeup side of things, but as filmmakers.
Their videos are so amazing and of such quality that it really motivates me when I’m planning videos for my YouTube channel.
Who else do you want to cosplay? I really want to challenge myself and make Bunny’s Hero Suit from Tiger and Bunny. But I also absolutely love Deku and Eraserhead from My Hero Academia and have plans to cosplay both of them next year as well.
Tell us an odd fact about yourself! One of my favourite things about cosplay is travelling on public transport in very extreme costumes.
I hate doing it when my costume can pass for normal clothes; I get really self-conscious. But, oh boy, I took the bus as Princess Bubblegum (which is all pink body paint, a hoopskirt dress and a giant crown) to a photoshoot once and THAT, my good friends, is an hilarious experience.
